Delphos Trading Post

There are many that try to copy us but, there are none like us !





Is Delphos Trading Post a pawn shop?

No,  Delphos Trading Post is not a pawn shop.  We do not give loans.  Every item we offer for sale was either purchased new from the manufacturer, purchased from the general public, or taken in as trade against another purchase.  And because we take in items we intend to resell, we assure that everything is in good working order.


Can anyone sell to you?

Yes, many of our items were purchased from the general public.  The only stipulations are that the seller must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age, and
  • Present a valid government issued photo identification at the time of the purchase.


What types of items do you buy?

As you browse through our site, you will see just some of the various items we offer for sale.  Our inventory literally changes daily.  Over the years we have had everything from  Alligator heads to post civil war wheelchairs.  We are always amazed by what shows up next.


Are there items that Delphos Trading Post will not buy?

Yes,  we will not purchase baby cribs, plastic play houses, mattresses, appliances such as washing machines or stoves, or adult material.  We will also not purchase any item which is illegal to own.


How are items shipped to the buyer?

Depending on the destination and the size of the item, purchases are generally shipped via either United Parcel Service(UPS), Federal Express (FedEx), or the United States Postal Service (USPS).   For large or unusual items, it may be necessary to use a private shipper.


Do you purchase estates?

 Absolutely !  Just e-mail us or give us a call so that we can discuss the details.  Because we are located in Ohio, we prefer to work as close to home as possible.  But,  we have handled estate sales as far as Georgia and Mississippi.


I have noticed that prices of some items are less on your website than on other product sites you utilize.  Why is this?

We utilize other sites such as E-bay or Amazon, we incur additional fees to complete those transactions.  If we can realize a savings by selling directly from our site, we pass that savings on to you whenever possible.


Does Delphos Trading Post handle precious metals?

Yes we do.  We have the training and equipment to provide accurate valuations for your gold, silver, or gem stones.


Do you purchase scrap jewelry or old worn coins?

Yes, we do.  We will base our purchase offer on the current market price for gold or silver.


What makes Delphos Trading Post unique?

Just like the trading posts of old,  whether your chatting with us on facebook  or haggling with us on ebay, all items are negoticable. On some items, we may have a bit of wiggle room,  on others we don't.  That's just the nature of the business.


Contact us, and tell us what you're searching for.  If we do not already have it in stock, we will see if we can find it or know where you can get it.  We will contact you once we locate the item to see if you are still interested in purchasing it.  There is no obligation to you to purchase the item.
