Finch: Might have to go to my local record store at this rate...

Going to take a while to shift these albums I think.....

Open to offers for 1, 2 or all :)

I think the problem is you are expecting too much for these.

Personally I don't think $10 per record is asking too much at all.

Some are worth less, some are worth more.

I've sold a few albums for $20-$30. 

Even at $5 each, $350 is still an absolute bargain, IMO.

Earlier in the thread, you were talking about $1k for the lot. Actually, most of this is what I could call "rubbish" (no offence). I just mean, there isn't much demand for it. Check out and you'll find a lot of it for sale for a few dollars each max. I don't know if any of your vinyl is "collector" stuff, but probably not. It's just the reality of second-hand vinyl, I think.

Some years ago I got rid of about 100 1960s-1970s LPs via Trademe. Hard work selling them one by one so I sold them groups of 10 and from memory got about $30 per group. It worked well but probably because I kept my expectations low.

However there was one that I sold on its own because I had heard it was a collectors' item - a non-mint copy of NZ group Human Instinct's 1970 album 'Stoned Guitar' which went for $176.

Trademe ftw.
