    Hello everyone,

    I’m trying to thin out my record collection as I am running out of space for my collection. I’ve decided to sell records that I haven’t listened to for many years and know I will not listen to them again as well some records that are duplicated (frustratingly, by mistake). Some are only worth a few dollars and some are $20-$50 according to Discogs. Some are still sealed. I don’t mind selling at a discount, but I had called a local record shop and was told they typically pay .50 cents per record, even if it’s worth $40-$50. I have plenty that I’d sell for a few dollars, but .50 for a record that is sealed and the median price on Discogs is $40. That’s something that I do not want to do.
    I have many other records that are worth more than $50, for those, I don’t mind selling individually on eBay or Discogs.
    So. If anyone knows a place on Long Island that will pay a fair price, albeit a discounted price, please let me know.

    Thank you.

    Try these:

    Looney Tunes in West Babylon or High Fidelity in Amityville.

    You can also try Record Stop in Patchogue.

    I’ve never sold anything on this forum. Do you know if there are protections for the seller like there are on Discogs and eBay?

    Thanks

    Hey Exile...is Record Stop the same store that was in Ronkokoma many years ago then relocated to Shirley ?

    You could call and see if there are any seller tables available here

    The Long Island Music Lover's Faire Record & CD Show Massapequa

    Pay cheap rent for one table. It's one day. It's easy. As fresh meat, you'll be set upon by the other dealers before the show opens, and then will have a good time all day. Many will pay in cash (that's seller protection for you). No commissions. You can take Paypal there with your phone.

    I’m from Long Island but usually hauled them down to the Princeton Record Exchange in New Jersey! They were easier to deal with than the Long Island stores. But if you prefer the Island….

    On Long Island try Mr Cheapo in Mineola or Commack

    They’re to ones that will give you .50 cents per record.
