Here's a few that I go to. The top two are in flea markets but don't let that scare you away...

Yesterday & Today Records
11041 Beach Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32246

Rainbow Records
1425 Tomoka Farms Rd. Daytona Beach, FL 32124

Atlantic Sounds
138 W International Speedway Blvd, Daytona Beach, FL 32114

Graveface Records & Curiosities
5 W 40th St, Savannah, GA 31401

There are some others in the area that I've been to but they are one's I wouldn't really recommend due to price, quality, etc.

Visiting one of the local (Toronto), small independents today known for their vintage Jazz pressings and he mentioned they just opened another store - in London U.K.! So to my like- minded brethren in London, it's called Cosmos Records on Hackney in East London. He was in the process of shipping out some minty Japanese (obi's too) Jazz LP's and 50's 60's stuff as well.
Also noticed a chunk of Soul and Blues offerings too.

Is it ok to mention a shop thats a little over priced and has a bad rep amongst other retailers? "The vinyl years" in Penzance, Cornwall.

Had a scope the other day and every single record is priced at about £10 and above. A little OTT for secondhand. Considering we have another two local vinyl shops that have a much fairer price range.

Pie and Vinyl

Southsea - UK

While in danger of seemingly being too hipster for it's own good this is in fact a lovely little vinyl den on the south coast of the UK. Plenty of stock if indie/rock is your thing .. it does try and cover most genres (hmm I hate pidgeonholing music but there you go) with a decent amount of re-releases.. they can order in most stuff on request if you don't find what you're after while browsing..

It has it's own record label and there's some nice P&V merch on offer..

Above all.. the staff are friendly.. the food is great and it's always a welcome visit for me.. prices are reasonable for the food and the vinyl (unlike another local store where vinyl price has rocketed)

I have to pimp out the record store I have my turntable lab inside of:

Al Bum's Record Shoppe
4606 S Main St
Acworth, GA 30101
http://www.facebook.com/AlBumsRecordShoppe

Mark, the owner is a great guy. He stands behind his records.

I still buy a crapload of records, even though I am up there every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday fixing turntables. I usually spend what I make on service fees in vinyl.

An update to my previous post on Toronto's record shops
peterpp wrote:
Well I made the rounds to all the shops (about 15) I was able to locate in Toronto that were mostly within walking distance of each other and I will only be returning to a few of them.

Vortex, Lots of records in the bins, interesting shop, well graded, average prices, did not find any on my current want list
Rotate This, Good selection, smaller shop, average prices, well graded, came out with a small bag-o-disks.
Sonic Boom , Huge selection, good to average prices, well graded, bought way more than I planned on.
Problem with Sonic Boom is they are right around the corner from a product supplier I have to visit fairly regularely. That might prove to be expensive :?

Clockwork Records..Hastings on the Hudson, NY

Cannot tell you how much I have bought there . Great stuff in the 1.00 and 50 cent bins and more inside the store that cost accordingly. Great selections and owner is a great guy. They are on Facebook too. For commuters they are a couple of blocks from the Hastings train station.

My local record store sells "Mystery Bags". 7 albums for $3. They are wrapped in a plain brown bag and you have no idea what you are getting. My kids this weekend each bought one. I joked with them that they would end up with Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass (Sorry if I have just offended some).

My daughter got a first pressing of Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy & my son got a first pressing of Lynyrd Skynyrd street survivor all with the original inserts with the 1977 tour dates. The jackets were beat the hell up and vinyl looked horrible, but both played perfectly.

Go figure. I'm sure they could of got at least $10 for each.

Nice score on their part. Wonder how they made it in?

Paid a visit to Langley's Records in West Molesey, Surrey (020 8979 3648). The owner has been running the shop since 1972 from the same location. There was recently some local press about the store perhaps having to either close or relocate due to the land being eyed up by property developers. Anyway, worth a visit - plenty of stock - a bit like old days; you take the empty sleeve to the counter to be matched with record (stored behind the counter). You could make a day trip of a visit with Hampton Court Palace and Bushy Park both nearby, for those not familiar with the area :)
