I came across one one time by a friend of a friend. He knew nothing about it so was selling it pretty cheap. I didn't buy it cause I'm not an accordion player but it was real nice. So basically maybe just ask around? Try eBay if you have a place to get it shipped to. Maybe even craigslist. Also, local/vintage music shops usually have them. I am in Florida and awhile back I went to a local, "underground" music shop in Miami and they had at least one accordion.
I have been playing one for several months now, a beautiful instrument I must say.
You're best chance at finding one would be online depending where you are really try kijiji, ebay or even local selling/buying/trading sites.
I bought mine for $700 but depending what kind of accordion you want, bigger keys usually cheaper as well as kids accordions (these are really fun and can be easily portable for your rough adventures)
-Online sites or (local sites)
-Ask around, friends, family, neighbours, whoever
-Grandparents dead or alive, the G's are highly more likely to have them for some reason
Also most music stores don't normally carry this rare and wonderful instrument sadly to say but there are actual stores out there that just specialize in Accordions.
finding some in Thrifts are possible as well, good luck!
The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
