We Buy Collections

Thinking of selling your record collection? 

Our favourite pastime is buying people’s record or compact disc collections, whether it’s a carrier bag full or a house full! We understand there are many reasons for considering to sell your record collection. Circumstances change, storage may be an issue, CD’s and MP3’s may be more convenient, downsizing, or sadly illness and bereavement can all be contributing factors that motivate people to call us.

If you’ve got some vinyl or CDs for sale, then simply give us a call or, if possible, email us a list at jaimiefennell@gmail.com and we’ll get back to you with a fair and honest appraisal. Or you can, of course, just pull up right outside the shop and drop them off and we’ll take a look through and offer you a price there and then. If it’s a larger collection, then the best option is to arrange for us to visit your home. We’re happy to travel far and wide and get a real buzz from chatting with the customer about their collection over a cup of tea!

The type of vinyl we buy is a question that can’t easily be answered. However, below are some indications of the sort of records that get our blood pumping. In terms of eras, any collection from the fifties, sixties or seventies is of interest particularly if it contains some beat, soul, psychedelic, progressive, blues, folk, jazz, metal, punk or reggae artists. The indie and alternative scene from the nineties and beyond has also become sought after. We also buy classical records particularly early stereo pressings on the Columbia (SAX), Decca (SXL), HMV (ASD) and Deutsche Grammophon (Large tulip) labels.

You may want to check to see if some of the records lurking in your collection include some of those on the labels to look for page.  These are only the tip of the iceberg as there are hundreds of collectable labels and thousands of desirable records out there, but it could be a good indication of the sort of collection you may have and the likelihood that we would want to part with large sums of money for them!
