Why do you sell that? Questions we hear all day long #1

     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    Younger folks, especially those new to the city,  can’t understand why we stock distressed furniture or non-working outdated electronics.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.

  1. I just saw an episode of NATE on TV and saw that there was a white cookoo clock hanging on your wall. Do you still have it? How much? I use to own a cookoo clock just like it that I purchased in Switzerland in 1974. Thank you.
