Sell Your Records

We pay good prices for the right records in the right condition!

If you’re thinking of selling a complete collection or a single item, then bring them to the shop anytime during opening hours, or arrange for a home call if they won’t fit in the car. Don’t worry if you think there’s nothing we’d be interested in, as it doesn’t take long to ascertain whether it’s something we’d buy. Condition is paramount, but in the case of some genres (reggae 7” singles), a certain amount of wear and label defacement is accepted. The lists below are just an abbreviated guide to what we buy, and are not comprehensive. There are many nuances relating to pressings, which would make you glaze over, if we mentioned them in detail!
