Does an antique store count? They buy and sell pretty much like a pawn shop. Not long ago we were going by an antique store and had a little time to kill so we went looking. Hadn't been in an antique store for years. Before we got inside the door my wife spotted these 2 wingback chairs in a window display. She said she's been looking for some like that for years but too expensive. These were in nice condition and 1/4 to 1/3 the price of new ones she'd look at. The store owner buys entire estates and resells. I think it's possible to get good deals, at least you don't have to wait at an auction.
