If you want to differentiate between 'also' and 'only' you will have to 
be precise.
'Yes' is ambigious for both cases.
E. g. I would see 'secondhand=yes' as as shop which sells normally new 
items but also secondhand - in opposite to 'secondhand=only'.

But while I would look for a furniture or clothes shop which sells 
second hand - I would look for a 'second hand shop' if I am looking for 
IT, electronics, games or other small stuff.
At least here in Germany.

A 'shop=car' mostly sells second hand also ... or only.
