There are 2 or 3 fairly rare LPs from the 1960s that I've been keeping my eye out for. During a slow moment at work last week, a quick internet search turned up one of them being offered at a very fair price by what looked to be a newly-opened record store in a small city in the middle of the country. I sent the guy an email inquiring...no response. A few days later I went back to look at the website and I saw he has a Facebook page, so I sent him a note through Facebook. Finally he replied to say yes; he still had the record, but as he has a new store that he's trying to build interest in, he would prefer to have the aforementioned LP on the shelf for the time being. If it doesn't sell locally within a few weeks, he told me he will then *consider* selling it to me via mail. I wrote back to ask if I can pay for it, he can keep it on his display shelf, and if anyone inquires, he can just say it's on hold pending payment. No response. Here I am begging a record store owner to please take my money! Seems weird to me.
