We are located at 1830 Locust Kansas City, MO in the downtown Crossroads Arts District. We’re open from 11 AM until 8 PM M-S, and 12 PM until 5 PM on Sunday.

About Our Grading: All our LPs are shipped with a protective plastic sleeve. Covers are assumed to be within a “+” or a “-” of the record grade. If there is a significant difference between the two or specific flaws we will list them in the “Notes” section. We strive to represent the condition of the record as accurately as possible, and to give you as much information as you desire. Questions about specific items are welcome – send us an e-mail, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We use the same grading scale for 78s that we use for LPs, 45s, etc.

Due to the volume of vinyl we handle, all records are visually graded unless otherwise noted. We grade our records using the Goldmine system (NM, M-, VG+, VG, VG-). We will not grade a record higher than NM unless its factory seal is still intact (SS/Still Sealed). If the above policy leaves any doubts, please email us!

Shipping Options:  Buyer pays shipping and handling costs.  We will reduce S&H for multiple purchases, please confirm actual cost before sending payment.  If you are requesting shipment to a non-confirmed address, please contact us before bidding.  Email us for additional shipping needs.
US customers – We use USPS Priority Mail, unless you request otherwise. Approximate cost for one LP using Priority Mail is typically $6.50 shipping postage and handling, additional LP’s add $2 each. Gatefold jackets and multiple vinyl LPs may warrant additional postage. Insurance is always optional.  USA: $1.35 for up to $50.00 insurance; $2.30 for $100.00 insurance; $1.05 per each additional $100.00.

International customers – Please contact us for shipping options and rates before you send payment.  We will invoice you with the proper shipping costs.  Often the most reasonably priced shipping used is Int’l Airmail Letter Post thru the US Postal Service. Shipping to Canada and Mexico is typically $6.50 for one LP and handling using this method. The $12.50 fee we have listed for International Services is intended for overseas shipping from the US.
Returns Policy: We do our best to accurately describe our items up for sale and we welcome any questions. Buyer’s remorse and issues of taste are not acceptable reasons for return. We will accept returns and reimburse return shipping if claim is handled in a timely manner – generally within one week – and meets one of the following conditions

  1. Manufacturer’s defect on sealed items.
  2. Accidental misrepresentation of item on our part. Examples include: incorrectly listing song titles, gatefold, original pressing, number of records in set, or other attributes. Minor grading disputes do not fall into this category. If you feel the condition of the record is significantly different than its stated grade, please contact us.
  3. Shipping error or damage. If our shipper damages an insured item so as to significantly change its playability or collectability, please return it so that we can process the damage claim. We are not responsible for damage to uninsured items. Insuring an item is the buyer’s responsibility.
