|How does the whole "Buy/Sell/Trade" thing work?||
Selling or trading at the Leechpit is just as easy as can be. Just pack up your unwanted vintage, retro, indie, punk, alternative, and/or pop culture stuff and swing it by the shop. Our ON SITE buyers will inspect your merchandise for style, size, and condition, and if anything catches our buyer's eye, we will make you an offer of either cash, or double in store credit.
NO APPOINTMENT NECCESSARY, although for large collections please feel free to give us a warning call, 719-634-DORK(3675)!
|What kinds of things do you guys buy?||
We buy VINTAGE and/or RETRO clothing, records, cassette tapes, t-shirts, nintendo games and systems, toys, collectibles, costume jewelry, skateboards, folk art, oddities, and anything else old, unusual, interesting, or just plain weird. If you aren't sure, give us a call at 719-634-DORK (3675), and we can chat about it, or send us a pic to theleechpit(at)gmail(dot)com!
WE ALWAYS NEED:
VINTAGE DENIM (LEVI'S, LEE, WRANGLER, BELLS, ETC)
|How much do you pay for ___________???||
What we pay depends on what you are selling. Generally speaking, we pay more for things that are harder for us to find, rarer, and/or more valuable. Most individual items of clothing or single records fetch a buck or two, but PREMIUM items get PREMIUM offers. Older, cleaner, cooler, weirder, and rarer are all good things!
WE PAY THE BEST OVER THE COUNTER PRICES FOR VALUABLE RECORDS & VINTAGE IN COLORADO!

|Can you come out to my house and look at my stuff?||
Although we prefer you bring you stuff to us, we are able to make exceptions for LARGE COLLECTIONS of vintage clothing, records, etc... If one or two people can reasonably fit the collection in a car and drive it down, we ask you please do so, otherwise, please call us at 719-634-DORK (3675) to arrange a housecall.
Furthermore, you can email pictures or inventory lists to theleechpit(at)gmail(cot)com.
|Why are your prices higher than the "thrift" stores?||
The Leechpit offers WORLD CLASS VINTAGE at the most competitive and affordable prices possible, and as much as we would love to be the "Cheaper than the Cheapest Store in Town," we have to settle for being the "Cooler than the Coolest Store in Town..."
Our prices are influenced by numerous factors, first of which is our desire to PAY YOU MORE for your unwanted vintage than anyone else around!
Furthermore, we scower the state and surrounding territories, often driving hundreds of miles, to track down and procure items for our carefully curated inventory.
Each item is then carefully researched, cleaned, inspected, and, if needed, authentically repaired by our ON STAFF EXPERTS before finally making its way onto our sales floor.
Further adding to our exceptional value, our customers receive expert sales service from our highly trained staff of clever and creative stylists, and unlike online vintage shopping, we offer the ability to "test drive" your purchases before making any final decisions.
|What is that whole "Keep Colorado Springs Lame" thing supposed to mean?||
Far more than a clever ploy to sell bumper stickers, the "Keep Colorado Springs Lame" campaign serves to remind us just how amazing a place Colorado Springs really is. If this is "Lame," then we are all for it!
