12 yr old Hancock and Moore Good deal or not

Posted by purplekrayon (My Page) on

I have found a 12 yr old Hancock and Moore leather section that someone is selling for $1000 (originally over $10,000). There is considerable fading in some places. It is a unprotected class 5 leather (top of the line). According to the original owner it was condition about every 6 months. Is this a good deal? What do I need to look for or be worried about before I purchase? I've read that a good leather recoloring kit could help bring back the color. Also that H&M will repair leather for the cost of the material and shipping. Would I be better off buying a new, lower quality sectional or buying this 12 yr old Hancock and Moore?

Thanks in advance.

Lifetime of a sofa is considered 10 yrs so take that into consideration

Why should a sofa only last 10 years?

My family room sectional is still going great after 14 years.
And I expect my Stickley sofa in the living room to last a lifetime.

I just bought a 10-year-old Lee Industries sofa (similar quality to Hancock & Moore) and it's heavenly, solid and sure to last at least another 10. I think that's more than one could say for any new $1000 sofa. Go for it!

If you're feeling adventuresome, you can get your own leather recoloring and conditioning supplies at the link below, just fyi.
