Q: Do you buy records?
Yes, we buy LPs (also referred to as 33rpm, 12”s, albums or full lengths) and 7”s (also referred to as 45s or singles). Albums must be with their original covers and 7”s should have a picture sleeve or a blank sleeve. Not all records are the same and there are many records we will not buy. You can learn more by reading our buying guide.
Q: Do you buy old records?
Yes, many of the records we buy are old but old records must also be in good playing condition. We primarily buy records based on the type of music that is currently in demand. To learn more about the type of music we do and do not buy, please refer to our buying guide.
Q: What else do you buy?
In addition to records we buy CDs, cassettes, books, magazines, posters, concert shirts and other music related memorabilia. However, we are VERY selective when buying these types of items. Please call us to discuss your collection. You can also send us an email with photos or descriptions. We do not buy 78s.
Q: Where are you located?
Sit & Spin Records is located in South Philadelphia at 2243 South Lambert St; on the corner of West Passyunk Avenue and Lambert St, between 20th and 21st Streets. If using public transit, we are only 7 blocks from the Snyder stop on the Broad Street line. You can also take the 17 Bus from Center City. By car, we are easily accessible from I-76 and I-95.
Q: Can you come to my house?
Yes, we are available for house calls. We’ll need to know your location, the size and condition of your collection, and the type of music you have. We can start with a phone interview; please have the collection in front of you when calling. You can also email us with a list and photos.
Q: How much do you pay?
We pay fair and competitive prices based on current market value. There are many factors that go into the value of a record. What we pay you will be a percentage of that value based on both the condition and the market demand for each record. Until we see and inspect the collection, we will not be able to tell you what it’s worth.
