Seller Terms

Attn: All Discogers
I will be out of town from Wednesday Oct. 23 - Monday Oct. 28th. If you are placing an order now it WILL NOT ship until I return. It will take me several days to catch up on orders when I return. Please be patient if ordering during this time period. If you cannot be patient, please do not place an order at this time. I rarely go on vacation, and I'd like to enjoy it!

To all my customers:
A friend of mine has taken on listing items from my vast warehouse so if you are familiar with my stock, his listings are from the same batch and do not cross over with any titles I have listed. Same quality, different seller. Check out his listings at:

To all customers. read this info prior to a purchase as it will answer many of the questions you may have, mainly about shipping costs. Please don't place an order and cancel because you haven't bothered to read shipping costs. I've tried to make it clear, but if you don't read it, you need to pay attention.

Payment options are Paypal for all customers and money orders for USA customers only. Buyer is responsible for shipping.

Any unpaid orders will be canceled after 7 days for ‘non-payment’ if you have not paid or made other arrangements.

USA Shipping
Shipping within the USA is a flat $5 rate for media mail, regardless of order size. All packages sent within the USA are sent with delivery confirmation. If the address being shipped to is within Minnesota (my location) you will be charged 7% sales tax for your order total when checking out using Paypal. I can ship Priority mail if requested but it will be more expensive. I do not offer any kind of overnight shipping.

International Shipping Rates (not including Canada)
All shipping is based on weight, and records can vary greatly in weight (gatefolds, heavy vinyl, etc)., so these shipping rates are approximates but are subject to change depending on the items. International shipping rates can vary greatly from country to country, so these are only APPROXIMATES, not etched in stone. If you have concerns about shipping costs, contact me before you place the order and let me know exactly what items you are ordering. If you place an order first without asking, and then complain about shipping costs, then you are not paying attention!

Regular Airmail
1st LP Record $22.00 (doubles, etc. are extra)
each additional $4.00
CDs/45s $13
each additional $3.00

Regular Airmail
1st LP Record $16.00 (doubles, etc. are extra)
each additional $4.00
CDs/45s $10 each additional $3.00

I have had a couple of packages to Slovenia get severely delayed or missing. If you place an order from that country you will need to accept full responsibility for any lost packages. I can no longer guarantee that your post office will deliver them.

If you choose to have it registered it costs $15 extra on top of regular postage to add that service. Once a package goes over 4 LBs in weight the costs go higher as it has to be sent Priority airmail.

Each package comes with a customs # which can be used for limited tracking info. If you want more tracking with a package be prepared to spend a lot more. Registered mail (only available on packages weighing less than 4 LBs) is more expensive but reliable and provides some tracking but it depends on the country of destination providing scanning info to the US post office, which doesn't always happen and varies from country to country. All shipping is based on weight so shipping costs can fluctuate. If you order more than one record to ship outside USA I can quote you shipping costs in advance if you'd like. Any packages that get returned to me as 'unclaimed' by the recipient will need to be re-shipped at the buyers expense. I also will not be responsible for any customs charges that are incurred by the post office or customs office of the buyer. Keep in mind that airmail usually takes 10-14 days but can take longer. If you can't be patient enough to wait for a package please do not order.

I ship Monday-Friday except for Thursdays when I usually spend the day adding new titles.
