While most people will take to Craigslist or eBay to find deals, they are also competing with hundreds of other buyers like you who are looking to get brand name skis at low prices. What’s more, the skis you’re looking at online at a used ski marketplace might be gone within a minute because another buyer was quicker at entering their credit card information than you were.
Take the hassle out of the buying process and go where many people don’t know where to look: pawn shops.
Before you dismiss this suggestion, perhaps because of a pre-conceived notion of pawn shops, hear us out. You might be surprised to learn that the most seasoned shoppers take advantage of the deals offered at pawn shops on quality used equipment that other people sell in a pinch.
