JACKED at WAX n FACTS!
Over the month of November I was in contact with WAX N FACTS in Atlanta, Georgia via e-mail regarding the sale of some of my old vinyl records. I made a list and e-mailed it to them and asked if they would be interested. They eventually sent the list back checking off 53 albums on the list that they wanted to see. I understood that any offer would be contingent on the condition of the albums. I cleaned and alphabetized them before taking them in. They were in a box. The two gentlemen took them out and they each sat on what appeared to be crates behind the counter and went through them.\rMy friend and I stood on the other side of the counter and tried to see as best that we could while this went on. After about 20 minutes or so they place two stacks on the counter. One stack of the ones they did not want and a stack of about 16 they made ridiculous offer of $2.50 each. At that point I decided to just take them all back. Once outside I stopped and counted them and found 2 missing. To make sure I was not jumping to conclusions I went through the box again and checked them off using my list. \rAt this time I immediately went back inside and called this to their attention and of course they denied having them or ever seeing them. My friend also went back and confronted them, but to no avail. So I cannot prove any of this except that I know what I had and that they STOLE 2 of my albums. I know I took 53 in and came out with 51. I checked them by the list when I assembled them to carry them over there. I checked my list when I cleaned each one and I checked my list and placed them in alphabetical order before I went over there. So be clear, I know what was in that box.\rSo my advice to anyone that goes there is; DONOT let your property out of your site. DO work from the counter. DO have a list and check off each one as you hand them over. DO check your lift before you leave the premises. DO take a friend as back up.\rSo my advice is to be careful when trying to selling you

WAX n JACKED (FACTS)
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.

It's All In The Name
Located in Little Five Points, Wax N Facts is a record store done the right way. Since records? resurgence into the realm of cool, hundreds of cheesy and artificial record stores across the nation have popped up. Refreshingly, Wax N Facts focuses on what?s most important ? the wax. Note that the small store is cluttered and slightly difficult to navigate. If you are looking for a specific record, you may have difficulty finding it there but the prices are a very reasonable and there are abandoned gems saturated through out the entire store. Saturday morning spent digging through the crates at Wax N Facts are one of the best ways to spend your time in the city.

Thousands and Thousands of Used Records in L5P
This Little Five legend has been selling new and vintage vinyl for decades to audiophiles young and old. The joint is set up like a classic used record store, with rickety crates housing wax in alphabetical order separated by genre. The staff is happy to help hunt down what you're looking for - and the prices for used records are remarkably fair. New records are found in the front of the store near the register, and those prices can be a bit steep. Popular records in most people's collections (Dylan, The Beatles, The Stones, etc.) are usually very scarce - though the chance of finding an obscure punk record from the 80s is higher here than most other stores.

My "home base" for record stores in Atlanta
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!
