  • Outdoor Gear Consignment Shop at RMA Expand Collapse

    One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!

    No longer a kayaker, sell your old boat. Thinking about hiking the Appalachian Trail but don’t have a backpack, pick up a used one.

    The Outdoor Gear Consignment Shop at Roanoke Mountain Adventures is a great way to get a little cash for that outdoor gear you no longer use, and it’s a great way to get a deal on that piece of gear you’ve been wanting but can’t justify buying at full retail price.

    Come browse the current selection of gently used gear between 11 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

    And if you want to unload your gear, contact James or Dan at 540-525-8295 or email with descriptions, desired sales price and pictures (if available).
