YES, WE ALSO ACCEPT USED MEDIA DONATIONS FOR ARC THRIFT STORES!
In addition to selling to us you can also donate unwanted books and music at our location to the ARC Thrift Stores (so you don't have to re-haul them). We are happy to send thousands of books weekly to the ARC Thrift Store to support their mission.
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.
We also offer repair services of the following items: turntables, record players, amplifiers, old tube radios, receivers, and other stereo related hardware. We also have a full range of diagnostic test equipment, tube tester and replacement parts such as belts, needles, cartridges, etc. We also purchase record players for resale, and are interested in old or broken record players for parts to aid in the repairs of others.
Turntable or receiver not working properly? We also buy, sell, trade and repair home audio equipment such as record players, turntables, receivers, stereos, old radios and similar vintage audio gear. We have a large in-store selection to choose from and offer cash or more in store credit for your used audio equipment if you are interested in upgrading your home audio setup. We also have a large inventory of new and used parts to repair or sell.
NEWS - We now REPAIR SKIPS on your favorite record using our USB microscope and surgical tools. Just like performing micro-surgery only cooler and less sterile! Just tell us the track and location of your skip and we'll take care of it... for ONLY... $5 for the first skip with any additional skips fixed for $2 each. Note that not all skips can be repaired, especially when the scratch is parallel with the grooves. See image here:
"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 have a partnership with ARC Thrift Stores to pick up several hundreds of abandoned, overstock and donated books at our location weekly.
