If you love your record shop and can spare a few pounds now to redeem later, we'll get back to selling brilliant records after the pandemic.

New stretch target

We have big plans for developing our Audio Equipment website and demo display.  Your pay-it-forward funding could help us achieve this.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for everyone. Crowdfunder is doing something to help. 

They have generously offered up their platform to allow all UK small businesses to pre-sell their products and experiences now, for cash, on a promise to redeem these at a later date.

You Like Buying Records, Right?

Why not build up YOUR record fund now to spend later?  

Saturday 18 April Would Have Been Record Store Day  

Remember how exciting that would have been?  Queuing in the dark to make sure you bagged your most desired records...saving for weeks to make sure your funds stretched to that one extra release that you had overlooked previously?

As Record Store Day is postponed, to mark the day we have set up this page so that you can buy yourself some credit for when Vintage & Vinyl opens again.

Think of it as buying a gift voucher for yourself or a loved one.

How does this help us?  While nobody is out and about shopping for new music, we still have overheads, such as shop rent and bills to pay.  We don't have excess funds, but we do have GREAT RECORDS IN STOCK - lots of them - ready to be snapped up when we open again.

Pay It Forward

If you can pay-it-forward and add a few pounds to the fund - once we get back to normality, you get your money back - FULLY - in records.

This allows me to pay the rent and bills for a few weeks, and you keep your local record shop in good shape and fighting fit.

Staying Analogue

We have always kept the shop as a simple analogue format - you come in to browse, find records you love and buy them.  We do not sell online as we prefer to keep the high street alive, and play our part in being social - in real life!  

The Rewards

Whether you spend £10 or £100 you will be able to redeem your reward in person when we are open again, against any records, Pro-ject or Klipsch audio equipment or gin or wine to the value of your purchased reward.  Just like a gift voucher.

If your choose the £699 or £329 option, you will receive your turntable within a week or so, subject to stock availability and any delivery restrictions that may materialise.

Stay Safe 

Thank you in advance if you buy a reward.
