COLLECTION FOR SALE
My entire collection is for sale (calling Zero Freitas ... )
Not just my shop stock, I mean everything in my collection, all 25+ thousand items.
Please get in touch if you want to buy EVERYTHING, or large chunks of what I have, but have a large number in mind.
If you're interested in cherry picking that's fine but you must MAKE ME AN OFFER and make it TOP DOLLAR. Please don't message me asking for a price -- I won't respond. This avoids wasting everyone's time.

TO BUSINESS...
I've been collecting records since I received my first proper pay cheque in September 1986. I've bought and sold records over the years but I'm a hoarder by instinct, so I've tended to hang on to things unless I really disliked them. Which is why I now have approx 25 thousand releases in my spacious attic. I used to sell records on my own website (DMR Records -- RIP, named after the fanzine I used to do - -also RIP) which went well until Google stopped including my website in its search results unless I was willing to pay... I never liked eBay, so looking for an alternative, I signed up to discogs in 2005 when the database seemed to contain only techno & dance releases, and none of my records, so it was another few years before I opened my discogs store, in September 2011. In 2018-2019 I made a concerted effort to get my whole collection into the database, and I realised I do no need to keep them all. In fact, I'd like to cut it down drastically. So get digging!

I'm a white middle class west european wage slave with a partner, children, pets, mortgages, insurances, ridiculously expensive health care premiums, and a steady stream of bills keeping my blood pressure up -- I'm just like everyone else, in other words -- so my response times are sometimes a little slow. So please, bear with me.

Ordering:
My account is set up to automatically cancel orders and report non-paying buyers 7 days after the invoice is sent. So if you need more time, just let me know and I'll hold off on sending the invoice. I'm a reasonable person but unfortunately I am not a mind-reader.

If you have zero feedback, I may insist on registered shipping (i.e. tracking) on your first order, for obvious reasons.

Useful Resources:
The following are here so I don't have to go looking for them everytime I want to add a record to the database.
