For those who haven't heard, Rock & Snow have a second location dubbed the "Annex". It's a small shop filled with closeouts from R&S and a ton of consignment gear of all kinds. I resisted it as long as I could but succumbed to the siren's call today. Man, that's a dangerous place for me. My challenge now will be to try to sell enough of my old stuff to offset a fraction of what I'll surely spend in there. So far I'm $128 in the hole! Gunkiemike

Even MORE dangerous: across the street from Bacchus! Climbing gear and 400 kinds of beer make for a volatile mix!

I've sold almost $400 worth of gear and technical clothing I haven't been using via the Annex. More than paid for a brand new dry 60m rope for ice season! I'm waiting for them to start taking XC ski gear so I can re-home more stuff that I no longer use.

I've found a number of goodies there, too. Too bad all the Rab women's clothing samples are mediums. Great deals on jackets if that is your size.

I always thought the little upstairs backroom at Rock and Snow was the 'annex' of its time... Woodchuck ATC

They are probably taking a queue from IME in North Conway. Their consignment store is a huge part of their business. Allen Sanderson

No. If you're hungry, Bacchus is just across the street.

I always figured anything used and first-rate at IME just got scooped up immediately. Kind of like C4s on here. AThomas

Dunno the nicer stuff is rare and overpriced imo... ei I saw a newish pair of nepal evos (def couple seasons wear but not bad condition)that I could get 100-150 cheaper on here or geartrade than through IME

90% of the time the stuff is super dmaged or straight 80s gear.

first of all, it's "dirtbag" not "dirt bagger"; secondly, poor people can't afford buying junk like people with full-time jobs, so they invest their hard-earned cash wisely, and thirdly, I don't think the Annex was a copycat of the IME consignment (but may be). I think it's more of an extension of the wildly successful gear swap that Rich holds once a year at his store free of charge to climbers.
