We’d also recommend that you look into whether there’s a used gear shop in your community. For example, Outdoor Gear Exchange in Burlington, VT would have everything someone would need for someone in Vermont, and for folks from the Front Range, they could try Boulder Sports Recycler, Wilderness Exchange, or Feral in Denver. There won’t be one of those in every town, but it is worth looking.
Finally, you can become a member of the Buy Nothing Project (usually accessible through a Facebook group local to your own community), where you may be able to find what you need through the generosity of another community member. Facebook marketplace or NextDoor may be other places to buy second-hand from your neighbors.
