Antiques, Older Furniture, Borrowed Furniture and Garage Sale Finds
Although antique furniture may look beautiful, it can be very dangerous. Antique cribs and bassinets have catch points, broken pieces and hazards that can lead to fatalities. Antique high chairs don't have a safe harness system. Older furniture may have been painted with lead-based paint. Put simply, antiques don't meet today's safety standards.
Helpful Hint: Remember that garage sale finds may seem like a great deal, but you may end up with a recalled item or dangerous piece that does more harm than good.
