Do you sell new vinyl records?

We specialize in high quality vintage and pre-owned vinyl. The only new records we tend to sell are select Re-Issues of rare, and beloved old local music.

Do you sell CD’s, tapes, books, and sound equipment?

We have a small, curated selection of vintage and pre-owned CD’s, tapes, and music books. Occasionally we have some refurbished record players in the shop.

Do you post overseas at the moment?

Due to the uncertainties of international postage during this time of Covid-19, we do not currently ship items overseas.

I’d like to sell some old records, music dvd’s, cd’s, books, or sound equipment to you. What do I do next?

Start by sending a picture or two of the top 5-10 items in your collection to our WhatsApp +27799228585. (Tip: bunch a few together in the same photo and keep it to less than five photos please) This process will help us better assess what next steps to take, like arrangements to see them in person. Please note, we no longer buy CD’s.

Do you sell online?

Every few weeks we send out a Groovy List on WhatsApp with a few of our latest arrivals available for pre-sale. If you want to buy something we send you our EFT details or SnapScan code. Payment has to be made within 48 hours for an item to be reserved. You can then pick it up at the store when we’re next open, or we can make arrangements with you to post it nationwide.

How do I join your WhatsApp Groovy List?

Simply send us a WhatsApp message to +27799228585 with “your name” and the word “groovy”.

Do you keep, or reserve records for later payment?

The general rule is that we can hold items for up to 48 hours to allow for payment. After 48 hours they go back on the shelf.
