Good Questions: Inexpensive Furniture Sources?

Pin it button
Hello AT,

I am finally moving into my own apartment after years and years of living with roommates. I would love to make my new home (a small studio in Brooklyn) comfortable and stylish, but I am on a budget that makes "Trading Spaces" look generous. I have a bed and desk, but will need to buy a couch, coffee table, etc... pretty much all of my furnishings.

Any suggestions for how to hunt down interesting cheap furniture!
Thanks! Kate
