This easel has definitely been used. One of the arms seems a bit "loose" and as such the arm hangs a bit on the opposite side. On another arm, the paint had peeled off a bit and I sprayed it with some flat black paint. Other than that, it's just a bit dirty. If you knew how to fix the "loose" arm, you'd have yourself a pretty nice easel. $80 shipped in lower 48, Other places extra. Thanks!
