Selling Vinyl Records

I'm clearing my loft out and I've come across a box of vinyl singles and EPs from the fifties and sixties.  Where is the best place to sell them as a job lot?  I don't want to list each one individually for sale.  Some of them may be worth something and others may be of little value.

  • There is a shop about 25 miles away but they're very picky about what they buy.

    Then you need to spend some time on eBay checking each one for sold price for valuable ones , list only those.

    Then Facebook marketplace as a job lot of not valuable

  • Yes, I've looked at ebay but the prices they sell for are very variable.  For instance I have the original Rolling Stones ep but haven't checked yet whether it's a first pressing.  Some sell for £5 and others sell for £12.  I have found a site called eil.com so I'll give them a ring tomorrow and see what they say.

    Try comparing what you have , to titles listed on Discogs.com. Its a collectors / buy / sell website - it may be useful.
    Just to note, collectors can be really fussy over marks however slight, and also releases by big / well known groups (Beatles / Stones etc..) although famous, a lot of which were then produced in mass quantities, so may not be rare or worth much, even though old - but on the other hand, you may have something unique or rare. You could just list the lot as a collection on ebay, or even Shpock to save any hassle.   I am currently sorting out records to finally let go, and have found these useful. Hope this helps.  :)
