21 S. Hope Chapel Rd.

Some great prices on most games, but others are pretty high.  Many consoles can be a little high, like a NGPC for $65, a DC for $75, and a mini SNES for $125.

Great knowledgeable staff, very helpful, highly recomended.

Seeing as from time to time people ask where they could go to find vintage games, vintage movies, and ect.. locally without going to the big name stores, I decided that an official topic should be started as some sort of a database to help those who are interested in finding these stores.

Now these stores could sell many things but I would only like to list those that sells movies, games, and even music.

I hope this helps people discover local businesses.
Please only list stores you have personally visited.
Try and go along with my format so I could update the list easier.
