CD’s and LP’s

Recommended Posts

Morgan

Afternoon all,

 

I’m looking for some help here.

 

Does anyone know of a shop, or shops, in Edinburgh that take in (purchase) CD’s and LP’s?

 

We have literally hundreds of them that we will never use again, and don’t want to just fling them out.

 

Thanks in advance.

You won't get much for taking them to a shop as they will knock you down to next to nothing.

 

Ebay is best if you want to get the maximum return - especially if some are rare and worth something.  That is probably a hassle you don't want though.

 

If you just want rid of them then try charity shops like Oxfam Music in Stockbridge.

Music Magpie, Gumtree maybe.

 

Youll not make a fortune mind but maybe a few sheckels.

Good one.  Thanks.

 

I assume we would have to do that through our UK address?

 

So, already it’s not looking like shops are a good idea.

Never heard of Music Magpie but will investigate.

I’ve already looked at their site and aren’t sure it would be worth the hassle of bringing all the stuff over, just to make a few bob.

 

Maybe best to just give them to a charity shop here to get shot of them all.

Yep, no mention of vinyl on their site but there definitely is a CD and DVD section.

Music Magpie will take the stuff off you and put it on ebay for a tidy profit!

It'll make a change for the punters there to see records that aren't Johnny Hallyday anyway. ;)

I remember I went to my first French market and was bowled over by the vast number of Johhny Hallyday T-shirts on sale. :D

 

Don't bin those records! They might still give someone some joy - any second hand record shop will take them off your hands with pleasure. You'll be hanging on to the REO Speedwagon ones of course?

I keep them with the 'Tommy photos'.

Aw. :) You're a sensitive man under that callous unloving exterior.

 

Anyway, I hope you're enjoying the Mediterranean autumn!

Bit more wintry than autumny today, but an improved forecast from Tuesday. 21 degrees, they're saying.  That'll do me!

My negative posts above are caused by a mate who was short of money and needed to raise cash and sold some things he regretted for a piss poor price.  He felt badly ripped off by a well known second hand record shop which I won't name.

Try www.discogs.com even if it's just to get an idea of the value of your collection or individual items you will find it there, very user friendly, you can open an account and sell online if you so wish.

It's a worldwide database with 1000's of collectors and dealers, there's quite a large contingent of buyers and sellers from France.

They also have an app on Google playstore, worth a look...

Thanks very much indeed!

To echo what someone else said, Discogs is where to go - not eBay. Discogs is an economic case study in itself - they reason its so big for sellers is they don't regulate P&P - and buyers are suckers for P&P once they've committed to a purchase.

This sounds very much like my best bet so far.

The majority of sellers have their p&p rates up for all to see, but admittedly there is a small minority who attempt to take advantage.

If after making a purchase and you find the sellers p&p rates expensive, then you just send a request asking them to cancel your order.

I've used this site off and on for 2/3 years now and never had a problem.

Hi there!  :wave1:

 

I’m assuming your post was for my benefit?  It’s so hard to tell with you as you just randomly type something into a thread!  Almost ‘out of the blue’ if you will.

 

Anyway, have you ever considered stand-up?  If not, you jolly well should, you’re a natural.  :thumbsup:

 

Your full potential will arrive so much quicker once you’ve grasped the basics of the English language.  Keep practising.  👍. You’ll be a revelation, believe me.

 

Anyway, thanks for your input to the thread, much appreciated.  :thumb:

 

Crazy Horses eh?  An all-time classic.  :)
