PEOPLE NEED BOOKS SO... We're doing "Leave a book, take a book" on our outside donation wall. Book donations appreciated (please no dumping junk) and limit 3 books may be taken per person free of charge. Let's keep people reading during these times!
NOTE - You can kill the coronavirus on a book by baking it in your oven on low for 15 minutes. (WHO says at least 133 degrees (fahrenheit) for 15 minutes kills the virus.)
NOTE: Store temporarily closed - Check back later.
At the Bizarre Bazaar we buy, sell and trade the following:
- used books, antique books, collectible books
- vinyl records, CDs, cassette tapes, Reel-to-Reel Tapes
- comic books & old vintage magazines
- old paper items - prints, posters, postcards, old photos, sheet music
- videos - DVDs & bluray
- VHS tapes (Music & Vintage Horror VHS tapes only)
- Home Audio Equipment - buy, sell, trade and repair record players, guitar amplifiers, old radios, turntables, amplifiers, receivers, brand name speakers, tuners and similar audio items. Working or broken (for parts) audio equipment is something we are always interested in buying. We also have an in-house audio repair service.
So instead of stockpiling your books, music, videos or home audio gear for "someday", sell them or trade them for stuff you haven't enjoyed yet. We also offer a relaxing atmosphere where you can meet others interested in pre-download era media.
Our "browser's paradise" philosophy focuses on keeping a rich in-house selection, a selection the local community helps us create by buying, selling, and trading with us. In addition, our inventory is available only in our store and not online, and this has two benefits for our customers: It keeps the rare "gems" in our store for your browsing pleasure, and it forces us to lower our prices for a smaller (local) buying population. With a focus on your browsing experience the Bizarre Bazaar is the ideal place to discover books, music and videos you never knew existed.
IN-HOUSE AUDIO REPAIR
At the Bizarre Bazaar we also buy, sell, trade and repair audio equipment such as record players, turntables, receivers, stereos, old radios, guitar amplifiers and similar vintage audio gear. We also have a large in-store selection to choose from and offer cash or store credit for your used audio equipment. We also have an in-house audio repair person (Thursday thru Monday) and have a large inventory of parts including needles, belts, audio tubes, various electronic components, cartridges and more. To keep our parts inventory growing we also buy broken audio equipment or random (useful) parts.
YES, WE ALSO ACCEPT DONATIONS:
Since we don't buy everything that comes in our door we do our best to help you find a home for your formerly-loved books and music items. If you do not want to re-haul your items you may donate them to our 25-cents wall just outside our store. It is our way of finding a home for less desirable books and records or items we simply don't have space for. We have MANY people pick through these items daily and they greatly appreciate the 25-cents price tag! With local chain thrift stores expecting $2.50+ for donated books many of them never find a home.
"Reduce, Re-use, Recycle" is something we do every day. Buying and selling used books (books already in circulation) re-uses them and greatly reduces the need to cut down more trees to make brand new books. We also use our 25-cents rack to find a home for less desirable items to save them from the landfill.
