View Full Version : For Sale - Classical/Opera Records

11-05-2013, 12:22
I have for some time being selling part of my huge LP collection on Hifi Wigwam, and I am well known in that place with a good lot of positive feedback.

This is my latest list of good quality records for sale. All these have been visually graded in strong natural light. Standard professional gradings are used in the following format: Sleeve/Vinyl.

Prices are for individual records - substantial discounts will be offered for those wishing to purchase larger amounts of disks, and often extra surprise records of similar standard will be added to the final package. Most of these records have been inherited, and all are in excellent or better condition.

Postage within the UK is 3 for the first record, and 1 more for each extra record, up to a maximum of 10, at which point they will be sent by insured courier, in highly protective packaging. Anyone wanting 20 or more will not be charged for postage.

Payment by PayPal Gift please – or other methods by negotiation.

Any questions please do PM me. If you want a particular work which is not on this list do ask me - I have some 13,000 records! Thanks for having a look.
