You asked, we answered!

We're expanding our used gear capabilities after many of you reached out with gear you wanted to sell. We are excited to trade for your loved used gear and get you credit for the new gear you want.  We'll be here for you each Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am-5pm at an offsite location on the corner of SE 7th @ Stark. Convenient, safe and no appointment necessary!  In the time of COVID, we're getting creative to support our community and make this service easy for our valued customers. Thank you for shopping local, and we can't wait to support you as you plan your next adventure!
