    From the tip of Cape Wrath to the toe of Dungeness - this is in every shop. I don't actually mind it, as it goes, but this record is everywhere.

    There is a copy of the first Ned Doheny LP that's been in the 'Rarities' section of the main Oxfam music shop here over a year now.

    It's a VG reissue Japanese copy with a bashed cover and ripped OBI strip Median £25 on Discogs and it's priced at £35.

    I asked the manager to explain why it was so expensive and that I would give them £20 for it and he refused because he is an arrogant cunt.

    No one else is even interested in that shite Yacht Rock record except me.

    FUCK OXFAM and there £100K+ a year directors who partake in child prostitution.

    I still take great glee that I found Demon Fuzz on Dawn in there for £1.99. GIRFUY

    just carefully remove the sticker from a cheap item and place it on top of the expensive one or remove the expensive one.
    oxfam stickers are quite easy to remove if i remember correctly

    hahahaha robbing from charity shops, I would never do such a thing

    They keep the rarities beside the counter out of the sleeve and have a little gollum book to check up anyway.

    It’s not just “Cheridy” shops that’s doing this now....

    I chanced upon a large (mainly mint) 70’s Rock collection in an "Antiques" shop in a sleepy west-country town a couple of years ago and swiftly hoovered up all the decent albums the guy had for sale on the day.

    The owner was offering a “15% discount” on the collection, which came in that week (supposedly)– but I watched him use his calculator totting up the total cost of what I picked out; he took 15% off, twice!

    So I grabbed a whole load of decent albums e.g. a (seemingly) never played copy of Billy Squier’s “The Tale of The Tape” for £4 and Babe Ruth’s “First Base” for £7, (with the discounts).

    I went back there this year and the seller had ramped all the prices up; for instance, he had a hilariously priced (battered) copy of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Here” and some crappy condition Beatles albums (one labelled “rare Portuguese version”) with a cover that looked it had been soaked in piss; all priced in the £25-30 range.

    I have no doubt if I go back there again next year, the same records will still be there, festering in his shitty shop, with the Toby Mugs, Framed Dog Paintings, Brass "Horse" and "Fire" items and all the other assorted, pointless shit these places seem to accumulate…..
