Vinyl records, which have experienced a sales boom in the last seven years, increased from 1 million to 6 million units sold in 2013. (Jeffrey Smith | Times Herald)

David Whitt was given his first vinyl record when he was 9 years old.
In the time it took to listen to the entire Devo album, Whitt admitted he was hooked and wanted more. This came at a time when everything began moving toward a digital platform and it became a norm to own an iPod stuffed with thousands of songs.
However, the crackle of a vinyl revival has been getting louder in the past decade.
“Vinyl record sales are through the roof right now,” Whitt said. “I think the younger generation is coming to the understanding that a hard copy of something is the best thing to have.”
Vinyl records, which have experienced a sales boom in the last seven years, increased from 1 million to 6 million units sold in 2013. In 2014, vinyl saw nearly a 52 percent increase in sales.
This still pales in comparison to digital streaming.
According to Nielsen SoundScan, which measures point-of-sale of recorded music products, there were almost 50 billion video and audio streaming downloads in 2013. But vinyl’s resurgence has provided a heartbeat in an industry of dwindling sales.
Whitt is among those who have rediscovered vinyl through the quality of sound it produces.
“There’s something nostalgic and very real about owning a record,” Whitt said. “There is nothing real about a CD in my opinion. You preserve a record long enough and it will last decades. You are not going to find a 70-year-old CD. If you do, it won’t be playable.”
The difference in sound lays within the technology.
Whitt said because music on CDs and MP3s is digitally compressed, the spectrum of sound record on an analog record is wider.
“I thought it was cool when I realized that the songs were in the grooves on the record,” he said. “The process of making vinyl is more unique.”
Whitt and a few of his friends spend the majority of their weekends in search of those rare collectibles that are left out for sale in thrift stores, garage sales and on Craigslist.
It’s the rush of finding a rare vinyl record that gets Whitt out of bed early on a Saturday morning.
“It takes a lot of legwork. It’s about finding that rare record for $1 in a garage sale,” Whitt said. “I prefer to dig for those records. The younger generation is going to buy online. But the more they collect, the more they will realize that digging is where it’s at.”
Chris Fisher, owner of Abbey Road Music Inc. at 3110 King Road in China Township, has been an avid collector of vinyl records to the point that he named his store after the famous Beatles’ album.
The store’s interior is lined with vinyl records to coincide with the resurrection of the black discs.
“We spin records a lot inside the store,” Fisher said. “About 99 percent of the time the music playing in the store is vinyl.”
As a member of the older generation that lived and died, note for note by the Beatles, Fisher said he’s glad to see younger customers curious about vinyl.
Fisher has taken notice of the rise in popularity and thinks the album covers have played a large part in attracting younger listeners.
“With every CD, you very seldom have a meaning to their cover,” he said. “Artists are promoting themselves instead of the artwork. Vinyl is the opposite and draws you in that way.”
As time goes on, Fisher said Abbey Road Music will be selling more vinyl. He is looking to put an additional 400 albums out on display.
St. Clair resident Robin Kovacs-VanDaele began collecting records a year ago because of her son.
“My son is a DJ in Detroit and found a bunch of records on Craigslist,” she said. “We bought more than 4,000 records and an old Magnavox console record player from the 1960s.”
Kovacs-VanDaele enjoys buying records for the unique sound they produce as well as the jacket covers they come with.
Her vinyl collection is a variety of different genres from the 1950s through the early ’90s, including jazz, rock, hip-hop/rap and techno.
“My niece and a co-worker, who are both in their 20s, have taken a liking to my collection,” she said. “I enjoy in their delight of this era and am excited that vinyl is making a comeback.”

6 Ways to Sell Vinyl Records for Cash
Do you remember the old vinyl records? When I was a young kid, vinyl was our only choice. Although 8-track tape recorders started gaining popularity in the U.S. in the mid-sixties, my family didn’t own one.
If I wanted to have music to listen to at home, it was off to the store for a vinyl record. Vinyl records came with cool covers usually loaded with great art.
You had to be extra careful not to scratch the vinyl as you used it. A scratch made it certain the music would skip over parts as it played.
These days vinyl records have been largely replaced by CDs and cloud music such as Spotify. However, vinyl records still sell enjoy quite a bit of popularity.
In fact, if you look on websites such as Amazon and Best Buy, you can find some of today’s popular artists and albums in a vinyl version.

Why Are Vinyl Records Still Popular?
Although vinyl records were decreasing in popularity in the 2000s, they’ve been making a comeback. According to this Forbes article, vinyl record sales have seen a steady resurgence since 2007.
So what is it that people love about vinyl records? Experts say it’s the nostalgia factor. Vinyl records have an audio quality that can only be described as sub-par.
However, there’s something oddly attractive about the crackling sound of the vinyl record playing on a turntable.
Some people love the memories it brings back when you slide that vinyl record out of its case, place it on the turntable and gently set the play needle in place. Others love the look of the art that graces vinyl record covers.
Regardless of the reasons, vinyl records have made a comeback. That means you might be able to sell them and make yourself some cash.
Read on to find out how you can sell vinyl records as a serious side hustle opportunity.
6 Ways to Sell Vinyl Records for Cash
There are several avenues you can use to sell vinyl records for cash. I’ll talk about your options in this section.
After that, I’ll go over what you need to know to get the most money for the albums.
1. Record/Music Stores
One of the best (and fastest) ways to sell your vinyl records is by bringing them to record or music stores near you. Record stores often have collections of used vinyl records for sale.
New vinyl record lovers and long-time collectors trying to build their collection will both buy used from record stores. Expect to get paid a deep discount from what the record stores will sell your used vinyl for.
After all, they’re in this thing to make a profit. Check local music/record stores in your area and bring your vinyl in to get offer prices.
Another popular place to sell vinyl records is on eBay. If you look on eBay, you’ll find a wide variety of vinyl records for sale.
eBay might bring you the most money for your vinyl records, depending on how you price them. You’ll be selling directly to collectors.
However, some people might want to buy them only to resell them at a higher price. Use eBay’s pricing guidelines for sellers to help you price your vinyl albums attractively.
Don’t forget to keep shipping costs and selling fees in mind as you price your albums. These types of fees will affect your bottom line profit.
You could always try listing your albums on other sites like eBay as well. The more exposure the albums get to collectors, the better.
Discogs is an online music marketplace and community started in 2000. You can use it to sell — or to buy — music in several formats.
You can sell vinyl records, CDs, DVDs, cassette tapes and more on Discogs. To sell on Discogs, you need a valid PayPal account.
Once you’ve created your free account, you can start listing your vinyls on Discogs. When you’ve entered into a order agreement with a buyer, Discogs will charge you an 8 percent selling fee.
There is a minimum fee of 10 cents and a maximum fee of $150. Discogs helps you determine a selling price by suggesting an automated price. However, you can adjust that suggested price as you see fit.
You’ll also need to set your shipping price. Discogs has a massive online music marketplace. This seems to be the place to go to buy and sell vinyl and other music online.
4. Flea Markets
Flea Markets can be a great place to sell vinyl records as well. Also known as swap meets, flea markets are havens for selling used items.
They’re also widely known for carrying nostalgic items such as vinyl records and other antiques. With flea markets, you typically set up a table or booth and set the prices on your items.
Traditional flea markets last a few days and move from location to location. Some malls and other shopping meccas will hold permanent flea markets in their halls and empty spaces.
Permanent flea markets are typically managed by an employee. You leave your items there and they collect the money from your sales.
Sites like American Fleas can help you find where there might be an upcoming flea market in your area. You can also do an internet search for flea markets near you to find markets where you can sell your vinyl.
Bring anything else you want to sell to your flea market booth, too. The more variety you have available, the more people you can get to stop at your booth to look at your vinyl collection.
5. Used Bookstores
Used bookstores can be a great place to sell your vinyl records, too. Stores like Half Price Books often buy vinyl so they can resell it.
Note that you won’t make as much money on your vinyl when you sell it to a store that’s going to resell it. As with music stores, bookstores will give you far less for your albums so they can resell it at a fair price.
The trade-off is that when you sell to a bookstore or music store, you go in, get your money and leave. No listing your items, waiting for a sale and coordinating shipments.
CDandLP.com is another online marketplace for used music. It’s been around since 2001 — almost as long as Discogs.
You set the price and the shipping fee amount when you sell on CDandLP.com. They do have suggested and automated pricing, but you’re not required to use it.
The fee you’ll pay when selling on this site (listing is free) varies. It’s determined based on the amount of the sale you make.
You’ll pay between 5 percent and 15 percent of the sale price of each transaction. See the website for more information on fees.
The fee structure for this site seems a little less favorable for sellers than Discogs does. However, it’s still a popular site people use to sell vinyl records.
These are six of the most popular ways to sell vinyl records for cash. Next, let’s talk about how to maximize your profit when selling vinyl records.
How to Sell Vinyl Records for Cash
Before you enter the market of selling vinyl records, there are some things you need to know. Selling vinyl records can be an intricate process. Here are some tips for making the most profit when selling vinyl records.
Educate Yourself on Vinyl Records
Knowing your business is key to success in any business. Start researching about vinyl records. Learn the ins and outs of the vinyl record world.
There are many online articles that can help you immerse yourself into the world of vinyl records.
Know What You’re Selling
It’s important to know what you’re selling — and what you want to sell — before you use selling vinyl as a regular side hustle. Buyers and online websites will want to know certain details about what you’re selling. Here are some things to know before you sell.
Condition is highly important in the world of vinyl records. Obviously, new vinyls still in the shrinkwrap are ideal. These new-in-the-box items will get you the most money if you price them right.
The vinyl record industry has a list of condition codes you can learn and use when selling records. For example, CDandLP.com has a list of condition codes and how to identify where an album belongs. Here are some examples from that list:
- S = Sealed. The album has never left its original packaging
- M = Mint. The plastic wrap may have been removed, but the album is still in perfect condition
- NM = Near Mint. For example, the record might have a slight scuff, but it doesn’t impact play quality
- E = Excellent. The record shows some signs of being played, but with very little impact on sound quality
- VG+ = Very Good Plus. There is some minimal impact on sound quality, but it’s probably not noticeable to the average listener.
And so on down the line the ratings go. Ratings on condition will help you sell your albums faster, as collectors and aficionados will know exactly what you’re offering.
Obviously, the worse the condition of the item, the less you can expect to get when you sell. Keep this in mind if you are shopping for albums you want to resell, too.
Rarity is another factor when selling vinyl records. The more rare an album is, the higher the price you can expect to get.
For instance, Rarerecords.net has a list of what they say are the most valuable vinyl records on the market. Part of what makes them valuable is their rarity.
At the top of their list is an album by the Beatles called “The Beatles: Yesterday and Today.” A sealed stereo version of the album sold for $125,000 in 2016.
The site says that there are likely less than 10 sealed stereo versions of the album in existence. This accounts for the high price it fetched in 2016. If you happen to own one of the suspected 10 or fewer sealed copies in existence — or come across one for cheap at a garage sale — you’ve just hit the side hustle jackpot.
However, if you own a popular album with more suspected copies in circulation, you’ll get far less for it. Let’s take one of my favorite bands, Boston, for example.
Boston’s first album, titled simply “Boston,” was first released in August of 1976. Today it’s still the second-highest grossing debut album in the United States. Its sales are reportedly surpassed only by album sales for Guns ‘N’ Roses “Appetite for Destruction.”
However, copies of the Boston album are selling for “only” $250–$399 on eBay. And while you’ll make a nice profit if you come across a sealed copy of this album, you won’t make a “pay off my mortgage” profit.
Rarity matters, so check eBay and other sites before you spend money to purchase an album based on its perceived rarity.
Mono vs. Stereo
Do you know the difference between mono albums and stereo albums? Mono albums have all song components coming out of both speakers. Stereo albums have some song components coming out of one side, and others coming out of the other. For instance, you might hear lyrics out of the right speaker and piano out of the left.
Mono vs. stereo is an important distinction to some people who are buying vinyl records. To some buyers, mono albums hold a bit more nostalgia than stereo albums. Either way, buyers often want to know which type of album you’re selling: mono or stereo.
Original Pressings vs. Reissues
Original pressings are albums that were released with the original batch. Older vinyl albums usually have a lower number of original pressings and are often more valuable.
Reissues are re-releases of an older vinyl album. These reissues are typically less valuable than original pressings.
Sites such as Originalpressing.com can help you determine whether an album is an original pressing or a reissue.
Know Where to Buy
Buying vinyl records at a price that will net you a profit is important. You may find your best deals at garage and estate sales, flea markets or on Craigslist or similar sites.
Many people looking to sell old vinyl records aren’t interested in the details of profitability. Instead, they simply want the albums gone and to make a bit of cash in the process.
Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask around either. Put a note out on Facebook that you’re looking to buy old vinyl albums. Ask if anyone has a collection they want to sell.
You could look at antique shops, too. However, most sellers at antique shops know the value of the albums they’re selling.
Know What to Pay
Knowing what to pay when you search out records to buy is important, too. Use sites like Discogs and CDandLP.com to find out what they’re selling albums for.
eBay can be a good reference site too, although some sellers have their prices overinflated. Do some research before you buy, and offer a price that’s sure to make you a profit.
Know Where to Sell
Knowing where to sell is important, too. Selling to record stores and resale sites like Discogs will definitely fetch you less money. The convenience factor is high, but the profit will likely be low.
On the other hand, selling on sites like eBay will reach a broader audience. And that audience will include your average collector and vinyl album buff.
When selling directly to an individual who wants to keep an album, you could find a buyer sucked in by nostalgia. Or a buyer who simply knows what they want for their collection.
They’ll likely be willing to pay a higher price than you’ll get from a resale store or site. You will probably have to wait longer for a buyer when selling direct, but you’ll make more money, too.
Selling vinyl records can be a profitable side hustle. As with any business or side hustle, you’ll need to do some work to get started.
You’ll need to educate yourself on pricing, condition and the other factors listed above. In addition, you’ll need to work to find vinyl records to buy at a low price.
You’ll need to work and test out the best selling venues. Additionally, you’ll need to be patient as you wait for buyers. There will be some tests — and some fails — as you buy in order to resell.
You may find out you paid far more for an album than you can sell it for. This is all a part of creating a lucrative side hustle.
However, if you have a passion for music and can learn to spot a good deal, this could be the side hustle for you.

If there are forces of fate at work in the world, Reggie Johnson, AKA Keeno18, knows all about them. The newcomer has one hell of a story to tell about his entry into the world of dance music. Back in Tampa, Florida, Johnson was on track for football stardom—four years on his high school varsity squad earned him a scholarship to play ball at the University of South Dakota, but after two years he lost his motivation and fell out of touch with the game. Along the way, fate drew Johnson to check out a Craigslist post advertising over 2000 dance records for sale from a well-known Detroit DJ, and Johnson quickly worked out a deal to take over the collection. While Johnson won't disclose the identity of the original owner, he tells us that the acquisition became his education in house and techno—and his motivation to start DJing and producing.
While attending Georgia State University in Atlanta, Johnson got in touch with Jimmy Edgar, the ex-Detroiter who founded the Ultramajic imprint. Edgar picked up Johnson's debut release, Channel 18, an EP of six deep, four-to-the-floor tracks that make inventive use of samples with slick and shuffling rhythms. Stream the first track "AJH" below, and read our interview with Johnson about the release and his transition from jock to jockey.
THUMP: Can you tell your history as a football player — did you have to give up football for DJing, or are you able to juggle both?
Keeno18: Football for me was huge part of my family and I was a bigger kid growing up, so it only seemed natural to play ball. It was decided in like elementary school that I was going to be a football player. I ended up getting a full ride scholarship to play in college ball in South Dakota. My second year in college I began to feel unmotivated so I walked away from my scholarship and transferred to Georgia State University. I made the team and began practicing but still didn't feel right. Not long after, Jimmy Edgar and I began contact on SoundCloud.
I heard you took over a massive record collection not too long ago from a well-known electro DJ in Detroit. Whose collection did it belong to, and how did you end up with it?
Yes I did. But I will not disclose his name out of respect of his privacy and the fact that he had a very mysterious nature. I think he would probably want it this way. But what I can say is that he went by a couple of different names and worked with well-known Detroit [artists]. He also insisted he helped coin the term "mash-up." He was known as a very technically skilled DJ and mixed vinyl with no headphones.
What was that experience like, and how did you listen to and process so much music so quickly? Do you remember the first record you listened to when you took over the collection?
It was cool to have a dope collection all at once. I actually got offered $3000 and a trip to California for the records and I declined only because I really thought these records were tight and I came up on something unique and special. These records seem to have had popped out of nowhere. A gift from the universe. I am still sorting and ripping the music, I act like I own a mini record shop.
I believe one of the first ones [I listened to] was DJ Assault's Sex on the Beach. The purple label on the record really resonated with me. I had seen the record on YouTube before so when I was scanning through them I spotted the record, threw that one on, and drifted off.
How did coming up on all of those records inspire you to start DJing?
There came a point in my life where I felt like I needed to slow down, sit and listen. I felt like the records gravitated towards me during a time when I needed them most. I view myself as a holographic focal point of energy, so I've always felt the need to transfer my energy into something that comes from me. I've always been impressed with the powers that the pioneers of house and techno display when they create music. This really inspired me to progress in the art and produce and DJ music that people can vibe to.

How One Man Built One of the Biggest Record Collections Ever Sold on Craigslist
In the days of physical media dying, we're seeing more and more expansive record collections pop up online. While there's an entire industry of rare record buyers and a worldwide market of obscure vinyl collectors more connected than ever, seeing gigantic assortments of music appear on eBay or Craigslist is becoming increasingly common, with only the largest collection capturing the awe and wonder of music fans online. But while the majority of the expansive attention-grabbing personal libraries tend to be more so accumulations than actual collections, often attributed to the original collector being a former DJ or having had some other connection to the music industry, this summer's most shared collection happens to be the product of dutiful keeping by a private collector.
When the 250,000-piece record collection with an asking price of $350,000 first popped up on Craigslist two months ago, it became a source of intrigue for record buyers and music fans alike. Located in Dunkirk, N.Y., the sheer size of the collection combined with no media attention or mention of it prior to the Craigslist post led to reactions ranging from skeptical to exuberant. What were all these records that spanned decades doing in this home? With the only information being the number of selections, the location, their condition, and the coda of belonging to the seller's departed father, it was as if vinyl's lost city of Atlantis had finally been uncovered.
This is the story of Frederic Bolling, a collector of many things including stamps, coins, toys, and yearbooks, but whose record collection was like no other of its kind. We spoke to Frederic’s daughter Patsy Klemens who told us how Frederic’s incredible collection came to be.
“He started his collection when he was a teenager,” Patsy told us, “but when you’re a teenager, you think they’re going to be obsolete someday and not around anymore.” Frederic being born in 1941 puts his teenage years right in the heart of the 1950s. “He didn’t treat them as good [then] as he did in his later years. I think it was after my stepmom had moved out in 1978 when he really started because then he was just collecting for himself.”
Frederic and Patsy began attending yard sales, household sales, and estate sales together, as well as frequenting record stores like Dunkirk’s Record Giant. “He’d always have to be the first one there and have that very first ticket. This lady once called the cops on him for waiting outside her house for the sale to open.” Patsy would join her father for these record adventures every weekend. “He’d be at these household sales for hours. He’d take the records outside, make sure they all looked decent and then go back a second or third time to make sure they looked good again.” While Frederic’s collection spanned genres, his favorite was early rock ’n’ roll. “His favorite [artists] were the Big Bopper, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis.”
He’d take the records outside, make sure they all looked decent and then go back a second or third time to make sure they looked good again.
When word of the collection Frederic was amassing started to spread, people began inviting him to DJ. “He had records that had come out of jukeboxes, and the fact that [people] knew he had those records, he got invited to play them. After a while, everyone just called him ‘The Record Man.’” Despite Frederic’s newfound notoriety, it wasn’t quite known exactly how many records were in his possession. “I tell people now it’s just overwhelming. They’re in his bedroom, his living room, the backroom.” But as massive as the collection may seem, Frederic’s attention to detail made sure they were kept in strict parameters. “There was no place where they wouldn’t be climate controlled. You would never find them in the attic and never find them in the cellar.” Frederic would vacuum his records to remove the dust, put them in new white sleeves, and then write down in his inventory book where he bought the record and from which sale. He ordered his records chronologically and kept stickers indicating what he paid for them and what he thought would be a fair price if they were to be resold.
Still, the question of exactly how many records Frederic owned is still being figured out. The initial 250,000 estimate may have been a touch too high. “I don’t know if, through the years, my dad thought that that’s how many he had," says Patsy. "I had a few people come in and appraise them so the lawyer could have something in writing, and they tried to give me an idea how many 250,000 would be. So I started counting them and I’m about halfway through.” Frederic’s full collection has roughly 160,000 45”s alone, with several other albums and books of 78”s Patsy is still going through. “If I could keep them all I would, but it’s just not feasible.”
While she has five sisters, Patsy was the only one who shared her father's passion for music. “I was trying to think of something really special to put on his [headstone]. He had a big love for Elvis, and one of his favorite songs was ‘Loving You.’ So one afternoon it popped into my head and I took the record to the guy making his stone. I said I want this record and everything on it etched into his stone, and underneath it I want ‘Loving You’ put on it.”
Frederic passed away from cancer in March of last year. Before his death, he and Patsy discussed his collection, both knowing she couldn’t keep them all. “He left them to me, and I asked him, ‘Dad, what am I going to do with all of these records?’ He said, ‘I don’t care, just put them on eBay.’” Patsy tells us the reason her now legendary Craigslist posting didn’t go into more detail about what her father’s collection contained was because it was so titanic. “I can sit down if I wanted to and make a list of everything that he had, but how do you make a list of 100,000-plus records?” When we spoke, Patsy had just sold 5,000 records, and has about 8,000 left. “I want them to go to someone who will take care of them. I don’t want them to go to just anybody.”

How to Keep Records for Yard Sale and Craigslist Purchases
You’re preparing your taxes when you realize that you don’t have receipts for a number of items you bought on Craigslist or at yard/garage sales.
This is a common concern for family child care providers who often buy such items with cash. But don’t give up!
IRS rules say that you must keep adequate records to support the business expenses you claim on your tax return. See IRS Publication 583 Starting a Business and Keeping Records. Ideally, you want a receipt for your purchases, but it’s not a requirement.
Here’s what you can do when buying items on Craigslist or at yard sales:
* Bring along a receipt book or write down the following information on a piece of paper. It might say: “February 17, 2016 – Used crib – $15 – 1436 Smith Avenue – saw ad on Craigslist.” Have the person you bought the item from sign it.
* Save a copy of the Craigslist or yard sale ad you saw in the newspaper or online.
* Take a picture of what you purchased.
If you didn’t do any of these things take the following steps for items you bought in 2010. Write out a note describing the date, item purchased, cost, and place of purchase. Estimate the cost if you have to. Take a picture of the items now.
In the future if you forget to get a signed receipt from the person you bought the item from, try to write down a record of the transaction and take a picture as soon as you can afterwards. It’s always a good idea to review your records at the end of each month to catch those transactions where you don’t have a receipt.
Do you do something different to record your Craigslist and yard sale transactions?
