Collecting sneakers has become a huge industry. With so many different brands and limited runs, there are millions of people across the country adding to their collections, buying and sell shoes. If you are looking for a unique pair to add to your collection, you might want to consider used shoes. While the quality might vary, there are a few key reasons to check for used shoes. First, they can cost much less than getting limited run shoes brand new. On the other side, when a limited run stops being sold, used might be the only way to get a pair for your collection. But where should you go to buy these shoes? Pawn shops like Paradise Pawn are a great choice for a variety of reasons. Keep reading to learn more.
Do All Pawn Shops Sell Sneakers?
No. Different pawn shops sell, buy, and pawn different items. While almost every pawn shop in America takes jewelry and watches, different pawn shops might buy or sell different things based on their ability to appraise and the local supply and demand. Here at Paradise Pawn we buy and sell a variety of different items from collectibles like figurines and comic books, to sneakers, and designed clothing. If you are in the New York City area we would be happy to discuss our inventory, or if you live somewhere else in the country, you can always check our eBay store for online purchases.
Why Should You Buy Used Sneakers From Pawn Shops?
Pawn shops that buy and sell used sneakers, are one of the best places to find shoes to add to your collection. They will likely have a pretty unique inventory that is constantly changing. You might find some rare items at a pawn shop that you are unlikely to find at other stores or resellers. Additionally, pawn shops are great at setting fair prices since they work hard to understand all of the factors that influence price.
Should You Buy Sneakers Online?
Shopping online for collectible sneakers can be hit or miss. Obviously if you are buying directly from the seller, that is usually above board. But some things you might want to avoid are buying from an individual through an online marketplace. Things like the quality of the item can be misconstrued online as well as other important information. Additionally pricing is often set by the seller and you might be overpaying for what you are getting. The best thing to do is go with an online seller like a Pawn shop. Pawn shops make all of the money on their ability to appraise items and know exactly what they are worth. Whether they are doing that to set a loan amount or to sell a used item. You should see if any local pawn shops or other reputable resellers either have their own online store or are using third party market places to ensure you are getting genuine items when you shop online.
