We Buy Records


Here at Originals we have years of buying experience and offer the best prices for your LP’s and 45’s! Since we’re a small, family owned shop we can afford to pay more for record collections, either large or small. We provide an attentive, one-on-one buying experience — whether you prefer to bring the records to our shop or we come directly to you in our record van. 

We are transparent in formulating our offers and take the time to tell you the value of each record based on condition, pressing, and rarity. This way you receive the best price for every record in your collection instead of one low sum for the entire lot as with other shops. To find out more about selling your collection or how we buy, give us a call or fill out the contact page below and we’ll get in touch with you promptly.

If you decide to come to us, there is plenty of meter free parking around the shop. Loading the records through the door is very easy and we’re happy to lend a hand. There is a record buyer in store most days. There is no appointment necessary but it doesn’t hurt to contact us beforehand, especially if you’re considering bringing in a larger collection. 

Can’t make it to us? Or have too many records to load into your car? We’re willing and excited to travel anywhere to buy collections: San Francisco, the Bay Area, California, or even out-of-state! Just give us a call to find out more and we’ll set up a time that is convenient for you, any day of the week. 

Here’s an idea of the genres we’re looking for: Jazz (bebop, hard bop, spiritual, free, modal). Rock (classic, new wave, punk, metal, psych). Soul (R&B, Funk, Northern, Boogie, Modern). Blues (Delta, Electric, Pre- and Post-War). Hip-Hop (underground, mainstream, tapes). World (Reggae, Brazilian, African, Latin). DJ collections, singles and more!
