About Us

About Us

Superior Seconds is a locally owned and operated sporting goods store in Issaquah WA. We sell quality pre-owned athletic equipment and recreational gear. We are not a pawn shop or antique store. We pride ourselves in offering only high quality merchandise to our customers.

Our store was originally inspired by a simple concept - to provide a place where community members could bring outgrown or unused gear and sell it to other community members. Through recycling sporting gear, all parties and our community benefit. We give gear a new life and offer a gear resource to the community. Our business only works properly when all parties benefit, the consignor (Seller), consignee (Superior Seconds) and the customer (Buyer).

Please visit our shop in the historic district of beautiful Issaquah, where you see our shop first hand. Or you can shop online. We also provide a variety of in-store services including SKI & Bike Workshop Services, lacrosse gear rental, lacrosse head stringing, Jensen Lee bags, and provide a local outlet for our neighborhood booster clubs.

We love our community and are proud to serve our customers by:

  • creating affordable opportunities for families to enjoy sports and recreational past-times.
  • reducing waste by reusing existing athletic equipment.
  • providing services for our community at a reasonable rate.
  • building community through shared activities, such as sport teams and recreational clubs/organizations.
  • giving back. Our unsold merchandise is donated to local non-profit organizations.
  • helping you unclutter your life and make a profit.

OUR MISSION

To provide our growing community with a resource for quality used sporting goods at affordable prices, which makes sports participation more accessible to all.

We believe… Quality gear, priced fairly, will sell.

We know… Reuse of quality gear benefits buyers, sellers and our environment.
