Our Buy/Trade Policy & of more interest: What We're Actually Looking For

When you're running a brick and mortar store like ours, your buy/sell game must be on point. We don’t have a lot of room for storage so when you bring inventory into the shop it needs to be stuff we can move. And, now that we’re coming up on a year of being open (fans self) it feels like we’ve finally started to figure ourselves out—which only takes like half your life so we feel pretty stoked to have come a fraction of the way. That being said, here’s the scoop.

Some things of note: We sell most of our inventory for $10 or less. This means that we don’t pay out a lot for merchandise. In fact, when we buy, we’ll only be giving you 35% of our retail value for the products. However, if you make a trade with us, we’ll give you 50% of the retail value to spend in store on merchandise or on our new print co-op (which you can check out here). If you have something rare you want lots o’ money for, go to an antiquarian or eBay.

What we’re actually looking for: We love anarchist zines, Dolly Parton, Mitski, Tom Waits, Existentialism, weirdo poetry chapbooks, any kind of poetry book, Rimbaud, Baudelaire, Donovan, The Spinners, Whitney Houston, Milan Kundera, bootleg tapes, vintage magazines, VHS tapes, Santo & Johnny, A Tribe Called Quest, Aphex Twin, books about bands, Hole, Devo, Blondie, D’Angelo, The Impressions, Roxane Gay, 1970’s paperbacks, bell hooks, Junot Diaz, Billie Holiday, Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Critical Theory, Maggie Nelson, Believer Mag, Clarice Lispector, Meatloaf, and so much more. Use these as your style springboard. & Please, don’t bring us dirty, torn, scratched inventory. We can’t and won’t take it.
