Any Good Retro Shops in South FL?
« on: July 12, 2017, 06:04:00 PM »
Been searching for cool shops that carry old games, toys, poster, records, etc and really haven't found much in south florida. Does anyone know of such a shop. I got spoiled when I lived further north with a few choice places that helped me to get my 80's fix.

tate's isn't exactly what you're looking for, but it's a kick azz place to kill a few hours at, either location. although the Lauderdale one is more packed. the other one is in Boynton near me.

Checked out Way Back When today and met the owner Joey. Great guy and cool selection of stuff. He is looking for some arcade machines. Will be posting a WTB thread in the arcade section.

Thanks for the heads up on this place.

Just checked out way back when yesterday. The place is a hidden gem, wish I would’ve known about it sooner, it’s only 10 minutes away from me. Joey was a great guy and knows his stuff. I know for sure I will be here ALOT in the future. Be sure to visit if you are in the area.

Maybe check out Odd Balls thrift store in Ft. Lauderdale, I've only been there once a few months ago but they had some pretty cool stuff
