I run a small indie shop in West Wales and am offering here a small portion of my stock at present and shall try to get as much of it up here for you to browse as I can, there are a lot of items which are not listed on Discogs so I cant put them on here, the reason is that life is FAR too short to be typing out tracklists, engineer’s shoe sizes and which remix is on which variant and I keep getting it wrong according to the good people who judge these things, who give a lot of their spare time to correcting submissions, Respect due to all of you but this is not the way I wish to spend my life, so if you dont see what you want, especially with Drum and Bass white labels (of which I have many unlisted) ask and you never know, I may have some of them.Happy Shopping.
I shall try to keep the list up to date as often as I can and add whenever I can.
However stuff does sell from my shop and occasionally this might mean someone orders something which is sold out! I know this is a pain but I will try to let buyers know quickly when this occurs and de-list accordingly as I have no intention of wasting anyones time, least of all my own.
About the Vinyl.. we do not have a deck in the shop anymore and customers are asked not to touch the vinyl on display, this preserves the quality of the plastic but if a sleeve gets dropped, well..it happens.
I try to list sleeve condition as accurately as is possible and most items are marked up as “MINT” simply because they will not have been played or handled.Simply because I remark “may have shelf-wear” this does not mean it DOES have any, and I will tell you if there are any really bad rips or ring-wear issues.
I try to pack stuff as well as I can and now I have started to take the LP out of the sleeve for packing,(so it doesnt shoot through the sleeve) I shall only do this where there is no shrink-wrap.
Where possible I have left shrink-wrap intact but if you get yours with the wrapper off it means that the plastic has been stored seperately from the sleeve which is on the racks. This is often standard practice in shops, and means that back up stock can be filed “backstage” and hence preserved. Wherever possible, if I have more than 1 copy of an item (you won’t see this as Discogs isnt that advanced yet!)then I shall always give you a sealed copy rather than the shelf copy or at least the best one I have.
Overseas buyers are often not amused by not receiving a sealed copy but this is not always possible with vinyl (and it’s certainly not eco-friendly or sustainable!), also it allows me to check the item before it leaves here.
I have had 35 years experience selling vinyl in more than 6 different shops in the UK but please don’t assume I wear any kind of anorak,I am not a specialist collector myself, I am a salesman. Hence it is my aim to sell the stuff to people who will come back for more, so if there are any questions or issues before or after a sale I am happy to help.
