Welcome everyone to my auctions, I am back from a well earned break and as usual have lots of Rock, Prog and Psych to list over the coming months, so please keep checking back on my auctions. As usual as in the last 9 or so years all my records are graded under mega strong light not natural light, so as my feedback has always stated very often my vg+ is the same as other sellers ex+ or nm.
Further I do not use long winded and often deceiving descriptions,stupid flame,starred back drops on listings its just plain facts that are important, anyone reading this is not interested in what Mccartney had for breakfast on the day it was recorded etc etc etc all I put in the listings are the most important parts, but I see eBay have changed their rules so obviously I have to abide by these for everyone's piece of mind. So this is all set out so everyone has piece of mind, please see below.
Please note some of these records are 40-50 years old and might need cleaning which I do not do as I know everyone has their own idea of how they like to do this, also please note due to the number of listings I put on I cannot play grade every record although I do try to play as many as possible, therefore if I've play graded it, it will have a play grade description in the listing with a separate visual grade and if its not been played it will only have a visual grade in the listing.
More than happy to combine postage and obviously it makes it a lot cheaper, but please make payment within 7 days on the first postage and let me know if you want to buy more and I will hold on posting and next time you buy I will adjust the postage, but due to the non paying buyers I've had in the past I will open a non payment through eBay after 7 days, I'm sorry to do this but eBay's fvf fees are charged to me whether I'm paid or not and I cannot afford to pay a 9% fee if i have not been paid.
Postage is 99% posted within 24 hours if not its 100% within 48 hours,but importantly i live on Exmoor and my post office only opens on Monday-Friday it is not open on weekends.
Anyway here we go again!!!

2:If in the unlikely event you are not happy with any record you buy please email me through the ebay messages,please note my private emails are not checked for mail and more so ebay do not recognise private emails so i only respond the correct way through ebay,before leaving bad feedback and i will do all i can to sort the matter out,we are all human and can get things wrong.
