I love hunting for used bargains at yard sales and I am a firm believer that 'one man's junk is another man's treasure', but I have discovered there are some items you should never buy used. Buying used items is a great way to save a lot of money. You can also find some good items that are no longer sold in stores. When you're on the hunt for used bargains, it's important to know what items to avoid, so I've created a list for you to check out. Here are 7 items you should never buy used.
1. Baby Cribs
One of the many items you should never buy used is a baby crib. Many cribs cost hundreds of dollars when they are purchased new, making it economical to purchase one used. It's important to remember that even if a used crib looks new, its still used and may not be safe to use. There are tons of recalls on cribs for things like the crib slats being too far apart and cribs that have drop down sides. If you're set on purchasing a used crib or already have, you should make sure that a recall hasn't been issued for it. While antique baby beds are cute, you should avoid purchasing one that was made before 1974 because it could contain lead paint, which is toxic.
