Tips:

  • Understand the store’s return policy before you buy; some stores may or may not give cash back, others may offer only trades, while some won’t take returns at all.
  • Beware of reproductions. Be sure to research your coveted piece before you buy.
  • Don’t be afraid to bargain. Especially if some places are cash-only.
  • Ask the staff if you’re looking for something specific. Not only will this save you a ton of time, it might get you on the staff’s good side and they might give you a ring in the future if your piece comes in.
  • If you’re looking for a vintage electronic to still put in use, plug it in and make sure it works before you buy.
