New York City secondhand

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Help,

My kid needs a re-sale/consignment shop where he can buy ski boots in NYC.  Adult sizes.  Even at 40% off, new is too expensive for him, so no retail outlet will suit.  We have several of the sports-recyling/kinds of shops here in southern New England, but he's in the city.  Anyone got a lead?

That's a tough one...I really don't like Paragon and have been staying away from there, and they're probably too expensive even with sales. Emilio's in Queens might have good sales starting a little later into March and April, and you can probably call them to ask. Who knows, maybe they'll be ok with some haggling? They tend to be a little bit nicer than the guys at Paragon.

 

I'll see if there's a sport-specific recycling website for nyc, but for now I'd try yelp and craigslist. I managed to score a free pair of new boots for my sister last year...it just takes lots of reloading the page! (Perhaps not so worth it if he's supposed to be studying instead )

also, check E-bay, Tramdock, etc online. should be able to score 60+% off.

Do you need the boots right away for an upcoming trip? If not, why not wait until next Fall and hit a swap? *plug starts* Better yet, come up to our swap shop over Halloween at Greek Peak, we'll hook you up. We have one of the largest fund raising swaps in the country.*plug ends*

 Try Level Nine sports on line.  They have some amazing deals on boots.
