2nd Hand Dan’s
2nd Hand Dan’s has been in business since January of 2013. There are three parts to this store: surplus military gear, furniture, and miscellaneous items.
Military Surplus Gear
All of the gear we have (about 60 different items at this time) comes from auctions we participate in. We hope to double our selection in the next year. We feel our prices are competitive with a lot of the larger surplus stores. We base all of our prices on how much the auctions cost us not on how much we can squeeze out of you, the customer. So there is usually a lower price compared to the big stores.
All of our gear has been issued. Some of it comes to us in brand new condition. Most of it is in good to great condition and the rest either goes into a super discount or into the trash. Any of the items we sell will be inspected to make sure that the best of what we have will come to you in good working order with no rips or tears.
We have obtained a government furniture contract from all the military bases in Colorado. This contract brings in mostly used (some brand new) but great quality furniture. We get anything from Industrial cabinets (Stanley Vidmar, Wright line, and more), shelving and storage, to brand name Daycare furniture (Community, Kaplan, Lakeshore, and more). We get a lot of top of the line office furniture (Hon, Croydon, Unicore, and many others). Enough to outfit a hole office–computer desks, chairs, 2-drawer and 5-drawer filing cabinets, bookcases, and much more). We even get some household furniture (Ethan Allen, Kincaid, and more) usually from the Air Force Academy.
We also get interesting miscellaneous items that happen to come in through the furniture and auction boxes (file folders, paper, desk organizers, binders and more) all of which is up for sale.
Ever Changing Inventory
I’m usually down on base picking furniture at least three times a week. So our selection of furniture changes up quite a bit. Same type of items just different selections. Most that we have is posted on Craigslist in Colorado Springs, Co. Unfortunately we never know what or when we will get items in. We just take it as it comes and try to put great prices to what we get to keep the flow going here in the store.
Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you or seeing in the store.
