Best place to buy used books, CD's, DVD's, Magazines, EVERYTHING!
Sep 30, 2010
There are several locations in southern California but the one that I tend to go to the most is the one in Gardena. I can spend hours here just looking at all the books and CD's and I'm always amazed by the prices and how many great things I can find that only cost $1!! I read a lot of basketball books and over the past few months I was able to get, Red Auerbach's Let Me Tell You A Story, Sacred Hoops by Phil Jackson, Falling From Grace by Terry Pluto and 7 Seconds or Less by Jack McCallum all for 1 dollar each! I was also able to get some old Playstation 1 video games, Jamiroquai CD's and a basketball magazine for a dollar each. Also I listen to a lot of Japanese music and buying imported music is always a pain so I come here every time I want to buy some CD's at a fraction of what I would pay online. One of the best things here is that they also buy back items. I cleared out my closet of old junk and I took it there and they calculated the amount on the spot and gave me cash for it. I highly recommend this place and believe that anyone can find something that they like here for only a couple dollars.
