Whatever your magazine rack's purpose, there is a large selection of magazine and newspaper racks for sale on eBay. Before you make your purchase, there are some things you should know about buying magazine racks.

Styles and types of magazine racks

Used magazine racks come in many different styles and offer a variety of design options. Modern, art deco, rustic, contemporary, vintage, and classic are just a few of the available styles of magazine racks for sale on eBay.

Some racks are integrated with furniture like side tables and nightstands. This feature is especially useful because it helps you to conserve space by combining the essential functions of different pieces into one item.

What other features of magazine racks should you consider?

In addition to choosing amongst various styles, you will also find that some of the cheap magazine racks have added functionality. Wheels with casters make your rack easy to roll, and dividers keep your magazines organised to add convenience and functionality.

The following list describes some additional features to consider before you make your purchase:

  • Material: Common rack materials include plastic, wood, canvas, steel, iron, teak, sea grass, metal wire, brass, bamboo, wicker, and rattan.
  • Type: Racks can be wall-mounted or freestanding. Some racks feature handles for easy carrying and can have feet or a metal base for support.
  • Storage: Some styles of freestanding racks fold or are nested inside another rack for easy storage.
  • Capacity: Wall-mounted racks can usually fit one or two magazines or newspapers per compartment. Freestanding racks generally accommodate five to 10 magazines, depending on thickness.
How to find the right magazine rack

Before you purchase living room magazine racks, be sure to determine their purpose, style, and type. There are numerous varieties of racks, including used metal newspaper stands, pre-owned magazine wall racks, and used antique glass magazine stands.

Purchasing used newspaper racks provides a way to save money and acquire vintage or antique items at bargain prices. Magazine racks from earlier time periods might be available only as reproductions if purchased new. The pool of used magazine racks offers the opportunity to acquire an authentic antique, instead of a replica, at an affordable price.
