Resident Records in The Lanes, Brighton served me well, after the recent record store day I missed out on something and was able to find it there without any problem. Whilst everything in London was sold out.

I was in Dunbar on the weekend and noticed there was an independant record store in the main St. https://www.facebook.com/...hop/1570919196481735
I don't know if it's any good but if any record hunters are passing on the A1 they could pop in !
Apparantly there is one in North Berwick too, although I didn't actually see that one even though I spent a lot of time in North Berwick on the weekend, mainly on the beach or in The Ship Inn http://www.50mls.co.uk/ship-inn/ or Zitto's !

Re: [Yatesman] Proper record shops [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Have just spent a couple of days on the furthest western edge of Herefordshire in Kington, where I spent a rewarding couple of hours sifting through the contents of...

Alpha Antiques & Emporium
45 High Street
Kington
Herefordshire


...a little shop packed-full of old stamp collections, coins, books, lots of old 60s and 70s league football programmes and books (particularly, and unsurprisingly, plenty of old Hereford United FC stuff, but I also saw several complete Panini sticker books from the late 70s), trinkets, and best of all a room out the back packed with old vinyl. What with Kington Town FC being a good tick, this shop is a worthwhile visit if you're heading to the Mill Street ground. Some decent ale at a couple of the town's pubs, too.

Not a record shop, but on returning to Hereford by bus, I popped into...

Magpie Antiques & Collectables
6 Commercial Road
Hereford


...only about five minutes walk from the railway station on the main road towards the town centre, and just opposite the bus station. No records, but they do stock a sizeable selection of old metal badges - particularly with a railway theme. They also had some old railway signalling signage.

Was in Swindon on Wednesday and there seems to be a number of shops in the town centre selling records. There was one very large shop (thousands and thousands of items) selling mostly CD's at more or less Charity Shop prices, they did have posters and I think some records. Think it may have some connection to Music Magpie as they did buy as well and there were flyers for Music Magpie..

IDL Records
Unit 22, The Tented Market

There is also a cafe that serves beer and buys/sells vinyl. I've not visited it yet, but I know of something similar at the 'Pie & Vinyl' cafe in Portsmouth, and there's another that I've heard has opened recently in Bradford. The Swindon cafe is at...

GOOD NEWS! A new record shop has opened in Oxford at...

FOPP
96~97 Gloucester Green
Oxford


...in the Gloucester Green square close to the main bus station. There used to be a Fopp store in Oxford (almost next door to the new shop), but it closed shortly after the company went into administration back in 2007.

I've always liked Fopp, and still regularly pop into their Covent Garden shop. The range might not be as adventurous as that in most of the independent shops on this thread, but they always have a good back-catalogue of stuff on the shelves, and the prices (especially for CDs) are always low. From a pre-2007 high of 81 stores, they now have nine, two of my favourites of which are:

FOPP
37 Sidney Street
Cambridge


and

FOPP
3~15 Rose Street
Edinburgh

Re: [oxpete] Proper record shops [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

When I lived on the Isle Of Wight in the early-90s there used to be at least half-a-dozen worthwhile record shops, thanks mainly to all the second-hand vinyl being passed on or swapped by all the DJs working the island's many nightclubs, holiday camps and hotels. Record Mania in Ryde was a good'un, while there was another truly chaotic set-up in an old basement in the Victoria Arcade on Ryde's Union Street. I remember another decent place at the far end of Newport High Street and an HMV on the same street, but they're now all long gone.

The only independent record shop left on the Isle Of Wight now is...

Groovy Records
6b Cross Street
Shanklin
