As people wander through the store, we often hear them muse - “Why do they sell that? “ The answer is really simple. We stock items our customers ask for & buy. If no one buys it we stop carrying it.
Older people are often confused by our vinyl section (No one buys records any more!) or our old keys & photos (who would buy that?)
Younger folks, especially those new to the city, can’t understand why we stock distressed furniture or non-working outdated electronics. They are simply unaware of the constant need for props in this media driven town.
Junk doesn’t have any lofty goals. We sell cool old stuff - $.99 VHS tapes (because we love movies) and $50 vintage suitcases because they look great - carried to the airport, stacked for a window display, or scattered about in a 1940’s train station scene.
Our customers include high school kids & retirees - art students, young couples, restaurant designers, & major movie studios. We try to serve them all.
So stop by, take a look & pick the item that’s right for your needs. And remember - it’s a big city - other people have other needs. We’re here for them too.
