Marine Consignment Store

Stumbled across a gold mine in Mystic, Conn yesterday. This marine consignment store had some great stuff at reasonable prices. I picked up a couple of PFDs (one for the dog!), and probably would have bought a "new" boarding ladder if the Admiral hadn't forceably removed me from the premises.

Re: Marine Consignment Store

I know the sister store in RI. I guess I see the gold mine reference, but it sure looks more like Sanford and Sons junk yard. Good prices and some rare finds, for sure. But wow, could they make it look less appealing?

I have actually sold items through the store. I would say I feel much better about repurposing my old fenders than to have tossed them. However, the process is as odd as can be. They do nothing to follow up and let you know your item has sold. You have to check. Then, your balance stays on account until you claim it, no automatic check. I've also been inconsistently charged a fee to get a check cut!

Mixed feeling about the place. Glad its there, will probably use them again, seems like a marginally run junkyard.
