Where to Buy and Sell Used Outdoor Gear and Sporting Goods in Portland
Since 1997, Next Adventure has been supplying Portlanders with high quality new and used outdoor gear. The store has a wide range of supplies for adults and kids, including camping, climbing, paddling and snow activities. If you’re looking for all things outdoor adventure, this store has you covered.
Next Adventure does not list its used gear online so you will have to visit the store to view the latest inventory.
If you are interested in selling your old gear, you can do so at the Bargain Basement. Next Adventure will give you store credit for quality gear that is clean and functional. You can sell your used gear at all four Next Adventure locations. Check online for the current list of items the store is accepting.
Next Adventure‘s main location is at 426 SE. Grand Ave. in Portland. You can also visit the Sandy store, Portland Paddle Sports Center and Scappoose Bay Paddling Center.
The store offers a selection of new and used outdoor gear, clothing and accessories with an inventory that changes with the seasons. Foster Outdoor does list some of its used inventory online, but I recommend visiting the store in person to see everything it has in stock.
If you have some outdoor gear or outdoor apparel you’d like to sell, Foster Outdoor does accept items for consignment. The store’s goal is to set pricing that benefits both the customer and Foster Outdoor while promoting a quick sale. Payouts are made once a month by cash or check.
Foster Outdoor is located at 6927 S.E. Foster Rd. in Portland.
Play It Again Sports
This is a national chain with nearby locations in Beaverton and Vancouver. The company sells new and used sporting equipment and fitness gear. For the team players in your family, Play It Again Sports also sells used team sporting equipment.
Products at the store include fitness and exercise equipment; football, baseball, softball, volleyball, ice and field hockey, lacrosse, soccer and track and field gear; and bicycles and winter sports gear.
If you have sporting or fitness gear you’d like to sell, bring it with you. The stores will pay cash for quality used goods or you can trade your old items for what you are buying at the store. It may not cover the full cost, but it will save you money on your purchase. You don’t need an appointment to sell your gear.
