Yes, but they’re probably dirty—or worse, infested with bed bugs or fleas.
A shiny laptop is inviting, but they’re likely to be old (read: very slow) and in bad shape.
So it’s buyer beware when purchasing a used laptop. Unless they have a solid state drive, laptops can be easily damaged when dropped, and you won’t know until suddenly you can’t access your data.
You’ll never know what previous pets were up to on second-hand pet beds, houses, crates, blankets, and toys. To prevent stinky smells from overtaking your space, and to ensure your furry friend has a clean place sit or sleep, buy ’em something brand new.
But you should also be careful about buying any upholstered piece of furniture secondhand; bedbugs don’t only hide out in beds.
While everyone knows bed bugs love to nestle in mattresses, they can also make a home out of just about anything that’s upholstered, and tend to gravitate towards bedroom furniture, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Avoid fabric-covered headboards and be sure to carefully examine any thrifted item before you bring it home.
It’s best to inspect used furniture before buying to avoid pest hidden in upholstered headboards.

Build a low cost kitchen by taking advantage of deals found at thrift shops and yard sales. It may be that are free of cracks and nicks. You’ll never what’s causing it since you don’t know the previous owner.
Cheaply made utensils can cause metals and chemicals to leach and contaminate your food, but sterling silver and stainless steel are safe to use.
Appliances You Can’t Test in Store
We’ll hook up your Secondhand appliance, test it to make sure it’s working and even walk you form the thrift store.
A word to the wise: Make sure you know it works before you bring it home.
Don’t buy a mattress at the thrift store is because many mattresses hold bed bugs in them and because people are unable to see these bed bugs with the naked eye.
Two words: bed bugs!
Old cookware that is chipped or scratched can release harmful chemicals into your food. Chipping non-stick coatings and rust are not safe to consume food off of, and over-used cookware may seep harmful chemicals into your food.
When it comes to vintage kitchen cookware, you may want to stick to just using them for decoration and not for food consumption.
