Buying Used Furniture In Collingwood Makes Good Sense. And Cents.

One of my favourite places to shop in Collingwood is at Too Good To Be Through in the Balsam Street plaza opposite Montana’s and Canadian Tire in Collingwood’s west end.   This store opened in 2003 and offers gently used and quality home furnishings on a consignment basis with a constantly changing inventory.

TGTBTI once read an article about buying used that explained how it was good for the environment.  Not only have pieces of used furniture been around long enough that there is no off-gassing but better still, we are saving them from landfills and re-using perfectly good materials.  Every time we buy new, we are using more resources and adding to environmental stress on many levels.  There is no packaging involved.  No trees cut down.  It made sense to me and altered the way I think about my consumer habits.

At To Good To Be Through, I’ve found a magnificent off-white couch, sturdy end tables, art and lamps.  It’s like a little treasure hunt every three weeks or so and I can’t resist.  I’ve seen brass hammered vessel sinks, silk pillows, zebra print chairs and silk carpets.   It’s fun to see what’s in store and a great place to furnish your first home, your last home, cottage or chalet.
