    Hi there,

    For those in Nova Scotia (specifically, in Halifax and surrounding area) where is your preferred place to buy, sell, give away, or find good quality gently-used items? (Clothes, furniture, books, etc)

    Kijiji
    Freecycle
    Charities like the Salvation Army, church sales, etc
    Second-hand store (if so, which ones?)
    Yahoo Groups mailing list (if so, which ones?)
    Facebook (if so, which Facebook groups?)
    Other


    Looking forward to your feedback!

    I loved Frenchies as a teen, but I was @ one on the weekend and there was nothing and everything felt so dirty...

    Is there one Frenchy's in particular you had a bad experience at, or do you find in general that they tend to be dirty?

    I agree! When I am visiting Halifax, this is the one I tend to visit. It's the nicest one I have ever been in - clean and organized!

    I'd also like to try the big Frenchy's in Dartmouth sometime, but that will have to wait until my next visit home.

    Yeah, was that a Frenchy's or "Guy's" Frenchy's... 'cause Guy's is like a chain... they are way better than some of the random Frenchy's around...

    Love Guy Frenchy's and I've been to most of them in NS, I think. I haven't been to the other just "Frenchy's." I'm also a long-time kijiji user. I've tried yard sales but I've never been able to be the early enough bird that gets the worm. LOL
