  • Calling all sheffield heads!

    Im going to visit my grandad in the wonderful village of Beighton - South Yorks (if you know crystal peaks you know the area...)

    Anyone (vibra?) know any semi-decent record shops and maybe a booter on the sunday. I was told about a shop by the university that was having a big clear out.

    cheers.

      If you're in town then check out The Store in Division Street for new releases/re-issues/comps - etc.

      If Mr Jones is in there say &quot;Hi&quot; from me.

      Other than that there's no certain places to dig. I know a few people who have had some wonderful finds in the numerous Charity's of Sheff over the years -but it's just a case of strike it lucky...

        oh I know all about 'snap' and all that.

        I remember flo the ice cream lady. She would come every night - 8 o'clock every on the dot - ring her bell and I would get a 99 with raspberry and other bits.

        I had to fund my ice cream addiction by collecting all the glass bottles round the area and selling them back to the 'pop' man. I think I got 2p a bottle!

        Hah those were the days!

              You shoulda just mailed me...

              The shop you're referring to near the Uni is called 'Record Collector' - a very interesting record shop that's been trading since the 70s! There are certainly treats to be had (although the staff there are VERY up on their rarities, not in a RC guide book stylee, so don't expect anything silly). Anyway, they've been having a 66% off (yep you read right, 66%!) sale for some time now in order to clear out the less rare items, and I've certainly had a few nice pieces from that over the last couple of months. How much more fresh stock they're putting out at the moment I do not know - but defo worth checking out. There are also a few charities around the same area worth a look.

              Si has mentioned Store (and I also recommend Mr Jones' fine emporium), but perhaps of more interest to you is the 2nd hand store 'Spin City' located on the right handside at the end of the road directly opposite. Run by a thoroughly sound fella named Andy (who is also a big old soul head) there is a fair amount of stock of all kinds. Well worth a peek.

              Also just around the corner on the same street as Store (Division Street) is another 2nd hander called 'Jacks' which has just moved in to a new unit. I popped in the other day and saw a few bits and pieces worth a look so you might want to check that out as well.

              Me and a couple of pals sometimes pop out to a booter a little way out of Sheffield on sundays - if you're interested drop me a mail and maybe we can hook up? If you're doing the shops on the Saturday it would be my pleasure to give you the tour.

              Holler at me.
              Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...

                Don't know if it's still the case, but the Rare'n'Racy bookshop on Devonshire Green used to have a fairly nice selection of jazz stuff, which included OSTs &amp; other bits: not a dedicated record shop, but a nice little selection back between '93 and '97, which was when I last visited the place. Maybe they've gone now, or shrunk back to just doing the books... The Oxfam up in Broomhill used to have some nice vinyl from time to time, too, but not usually at charity shop prices, and there used to be a couple of erratic (but cheap) charities along Eccleshall Road too. Maybe all this is now hopelessly out of date, though...

                  A little I'm afraid - Rare 'n' Racy still there but don't think I've seen a fresh record in there for a year or so! Seems they concentrate on the books &amp; cds more these days..

                  Oxfam worth checking (tiny display now though)

                  Ecclesall Road (my hood) also worth a look - but never much heat to be honest. My mate Chris's store 'Lowlife' just off it on Hickmott Rd would cheer you up though, with his effervescent, smiley demeanour and fine selection of all good new rekkids.

                    Guys! you're bringing tears to my eyes reminding me of my student days in sheffield!
                    The ones i'd recommend are record collector, the shop in castle market (sorry can't remember the name) &amp; the store.
                    Never found anything other than a copy of Billy Joel- 52nd Street in the Sheffield Charities, now I know why grrrrrrrr! :wink:
