OneThirtyEight Records

Post by Evan » Sat Mar 07, 2015 4:37 pm

Some of you may remember I was planning on starting a record store online. Well, I have done it. Hooray for me!

Currently I am in a soft launch type phase, wherein stock levels are low, and I am only shipping to the UK while I iron out the bugs. Baby steps...

Anyway, you can visit the store here: http://onethirtyeightrecords.co.uk/

It's Bob Dylan Week (until tomorrow). All Dylan records are at least £1 off.

Free postage on all orders over £10.

Good luck with the venture, Evan, I'll be back for Turner week (hopefully you'll be shipping abroad by then).

I need Turner Week stock first, because I am not selling my own collection.

International shipping is probably a couple of months away. If mistakes are to be made (which undoubtedly they will be with a new venture) then I would rather make them on a smaller scale (if that makes sense).

Website looks good! Maybe have a new sub heading - Top picks, Best seller etc. and maybe a section to new cheap stuff to listen to where people can buy new records they haven't heard before and have a youtube link to one of their songs so people can check out new music? Just an idea.

Good luck to you, I hope to set up my own business when i'm older and i admire your courage.

Although strictly speaking, I do not entirely agree with Record Store Day, it seemed churlish not to acknowledge it.

With this in mind, EVERYTHING is on sale until Sunday evening. Free postage on all orders over £10. http://onethirtyeightrecords.co.uk/

(I will be adding further stock throughout the day)

Hi Evan,

Are you any closer to shipping overseas? There's a couple of things you list that I want.

Cheers,
Mel

Thanks Evan, I'll put a little list together and drop you a line this week.

(Note: I'm used to paying more for postage than I do for the actual item. I'm resigned to this.)
