    It seems stores can not price used vinyl high enough , no matter how high they go , it still sells ...thoughts on when this will peak ???

    Prices are stable in LA.

    i have just noticed many local places (esp w/ 80's titles ) -keep raising their prices on what was once common 80s titles (Madonna , MJ , Prince , Bruce , Leppard , the Time , Priest , Maiden , Cool J , PE , Beasties , BDP , etc) --and they still sell just as fast as they did when the prices were $10-$20 lower ....

    That's only a small subset of the whole universe of used records.
    Ebay and Discogs are more representative. Discogs prizes are rather stable in my experience.

    Don't a lot stores price their used stock on what the titles are fetching online? I know some of the rarer titles I've seen seem to be priced according to Discogs.

    I agree, but only since what I'm looking for never moves because it's priced too high.

    I have seen a few record stores with very reasonable prices on common records that go for double even triple the price online. For now I'm holding off on buying records online.

    Mind you, some mom and pops are more forgiving than others. Got a VG+ 1st pressing of UK Genesis LLDOB for 24.00 Cdn. Seems fair.

    You are right I happened to find a few record stores in Arizona (while on vacation) that had reasonable prices on well over half they're vinyl inventory.

    A record store not far from me has kinda high prices on vinyl records and CDs so I don't shop there as often as I use to.

    Boston has plenty of competition among stores selling used (and new) vinyl, so prices never get too inflated. I haven't noticed any upward creep over the last 15 years I've been living here.

    What, Reid is gonna go through all 50,000 LPs at In Your Ear! with a pricing gun? Never gonna happen.
