429948 Selling Vinyl
I've got a couple of hundred pounds of vinyl records, no interest in keeping them any longer, most which was purchased from charity shops, record shops I never went to again or given as a gift. Where exactly do I get rid of it? There are about half a dozen different options online and I can't say which is best, but I was thinking perhaps someone here could.

If you want to turn it into a fun day out, you could take your record collection to a record fair.

It's kind of more a niche thing these days for connaisseurs and enthusiasts, but it could be a good way to get rid of a few of your records, and meet interesting people in the process.

Back before the Internet and when music still came on physical formats, I went to those kinds of things regularly, mainly to find rare CDs that were out of print, or obscure one-hit wonders.

If you want the best price for it, Discogs. If you just want it out of the house, sell it as a job lot on eBay - a dealer or collector will happily buy your entire record collection, but obviously won't pay top dollar for it.

Not OP, but that would probably always leave me with the nagging thought in the back of my head that maybe I gave away some sort of rare collector's item for cheap which would really have been worth something.

In any case, it won't hurt to go through all those records one by one and check if there are some among them that could fetch a good price if sold separately. Collector's items that are sought after by true fans often look quite inconspicuous to the untrained eye.

Oh, I did that very thing earlier this afternoon, gave them little price tags everything, and a few of them could fetch quite a handsome price. It won't buy me solid gold socks or anything, but I'd be quite gutted if I'd sold them wholesale only to find out one or two cost that much on by themselves. Plus I really don't like record shops, I don't think I've been in one that didn't feel about as welcoming as a midnight stroll through a decidedly shady estate. As such I'm reluctant to support their continued renaissance.

I think I'll list them on Discogs, maybe do another listing somewhere like Gumtree so if anyone nearby wants any they can just come and get it.

There's a Monty Python one that's stuck together somehow, which Python would most believably have cummed in a vinyl sleeve do you think? I think might kind of backstory might be the only way to get any real money for it.

Definitely John Cleese.
