    Weigh the pile and then work out the postage. And then set a price you don't want less than and put that in the ad. Good luck.

      I agree, make sure that you know how much it will cost for the postage.

      If you really don't mind what you get for them, you should consider putting them on a Crazy Wednesday Auction... you never know what you could get :-)

      Just remember to describe your lot nicely so all the buyers understand the value of what they are bidding on :-)

        We sold LPs on our R1 auction. Went for R1 each.....

        As with the encyclopedias, you need collectors to stumble along your listings.

          I totally agree with this. I have stopped R1 auctions. I found them a waste of time and money.
          Items I have for sale.

          Why do today what you can put off till next year?

            I enjoy the R1.00 auctions - buying and selling. Only items I really want to get rid of do I put on the R1.00 auctions and hope that someone else will be interested in them, even if it's only for R1.00. This is a great way to declutter one's life and give someone else the benefit of useful items.

              You really just need two bidders to get the bids to an acceptable level.

              The problem with LP records is there are no bidders.. :)

                Like was said on the 1960's encyclopaedia thread, many things count towards the true value of an LP. Buying off the Internet is basically sight unseen and whereas a book in poor condition can still be read (and thus enjoyed), an LP in mediocre condition is unusable. Even an LP in fair condition requires much work and one nick can ruin it.

                  Value of LP and 7&quot; vinyl

                  I found that it is a whole lot easier to buy the music on the internet. The problem with "old records" is that they are old and damaged and full of static, rice crispies and serious dust. I used to collect vinyl as I was a mobile DJ. When MP3 took over it killed the vinyl market.
                  Good luck anyway

                      Exactly why one needs to (at least) visual inspect an LP before purchase, or buy from a reputable dealer in vintage LP's.

                      But I do feel that LP's have a much better sound than (digitally remastered) CD/MP3 music. Even my LP's that have been converted to MP3 sound better.

                        i would have thought DJs would still go after the old school albums and singles so that they can get a beat or mix a tune or whatever it's called.

                          Lp Records

                          True Buyers of LP's are very particular. The condition of the record has to very good unless it is very,very rare. Don't attempt to sell rubbish that you found somewhere without doing your homework . The record industry of the 50's , 60's and 70's is very complicated and intricate and your selective buyers have a great knowledge of this and the many variables. Unfortunately about 80% percent of all records in SA are not worth much to true "audiophiles" . I have found this over and over in my dealings on Bob and elsewhere, with records. Without having an understanding of music, artists,the record industry and even record players , you will be wasting your time selling records...

                            but there is a difference between trying to sell a record that may be worth something due to its age and selling a record because you no longer listen to it or you found it in a box somewhere. one person may buy it because they are a collector and another will buy it for nostalgic purposes.

                              I'm just sitting on my LPs for now. When I have time I'm going to research the prices on the net.

                              If I'm only going to get R1 for them I'd rather make something out of them. Or just stick the covers on a wall and get all nostalgic about the old days. ;)
