Tips for visiting Wax N Fax to sell vinyl Records, DO make a list. DO NOT allow them to place your albums on the floor. DO work only from the counter. DO use a list as you look at the albums. DO count you albums before and after. I recently visited Wax n Facts in Atlanta in an attempt to sell some of my old vinyl records. Prior to the visit I made a list of my albums and emailed it to the store. They took my list and picked off 53 albums they would like to see. I cleaned each album and took them there with my list. At the store 2 gentlemen took the box and they each took a stack and inspected each album. Once they were done they returned 2 stacks to me, one with an offer and the other stack was rejected. I did not like the offer so I took them all back. Once outside I recounted my albums against my list and found 2 were missing. I took in 53 and came out with 51. I returned immediately to retrieve them and was told they did not have them and did not recall seeing those two particular albums. I know they were in the box; I counted prior to the visit. So in short, this review in a word to the wise before you head over I just want to suggest these helpful tips so that no one else has the same experience.

I shop at all the indie record stores in Atlanta and have done so for about 25 years, and Wax 'n Facts is my home base out of all of them. It's been there as long as any, accessible there in the heart of L5P, and has a great selection of CD's and especially vinyl. Sometimes the staff gives off a whiff of that familiar record store attitude of being bored by my questions, but they know their stuff. The next time you're about to buy a record online or from a big box retailer, go to Wax 'n Facts instead and revel in their selection and in the sheer feel of the place. It's got history and a nice vibe. My 4-1/2 year old son even loves it!
