What’s the name of your shop?
How long have you been selling records on Discogs?
I’ve been selling on Discogs for the last 10 years.
How did you get into selling records?
Most of us bought records from a young age, which led to DJing. We were spending most of our money on records, so we thought “why not open our own store?”.
What is your favorite record store right now? Why?
Us of course ;)
Are there any more out there?? Hahahahaha
Do you have a story that you’d like to share about record selling? Please tell us!
We’ve bought masses of record collections over the years and have found the most random items with them… Just a few we’ve found include a brass horse figure, passports, a photo of a girl using a club toilet and birth certificates… The list could go on. We actually have a shelf in our store with some of these items on show!
What is your favorite record of all-time?
We all have different favourites every day, it’s impossible to decide on one among us!
What is the most valuable item you’ve ever sold?
Recently we sold a Queen box set for £159.99.
What does your own record collection look like?
A well-organised library of records, with a mixture of styles from the 50’s onward and across many genres.
What has been your best record find?
We had a phone call to say someone had moved into a house and there were a few hundred records in the garage that they needed moving by the weekend or they would be thrown out to save space. We expected the usual easy listening crooners and all that sort of stuff, but instead, it was an amazing haul of rare Detroit Techno, all kept in PVC protectors!
What is your number one tip for buyers and/or sellers on Discogs?
As Sellers, it’s all about great customer service and lightning speed mail order, that’s what we specialise in.
