Used Buying

We are always actively buying used CDs, DVDs, Cassettes, and LPs from 2 to 6 PM every day, and no appointment is necessary. We are often quite busy, so we encourage you to call ahead (360) 357-4755 so that we can give you an idea of what to expect.

We are usually buying during the rest of our regular business hours as well, but you might have to leave your items and come back later or wait for us to call you.

What we’re able to take depends on condition and sellability. It’s very hard to tell you what we can give you for your Beatles record or out-of-print CD until we see it, so bring it in.

Please do not take the trouble to make a list of your items, unless it is something that you really enjoy doing, because we can get through a collection pretty quickly and it would save you a lot of time to just bring everything in.

We cannot buy VHS or 8-tracks.

But we will sometimes take them for free to either sell very cheaply or give away. We are also often willing to take donations of records and CDs that we cannot sell, because we have found that people will quickly take them for free and give them new homes. This seems a lot better than tossing them in a landfill or giving them to one of the bigger “thrift” stores that tend to throw away many of the donated records they receive.

Generally speaking, we pay up to $1 cash or $2 credit for used CDs and DVDs.

We will sometimes pay a little more for newer titles. What we can pay depends on condition, title, and sellability.

Used LPs typically range between $2-4 in retail value, and we will pay a dollar each for LPs that we can sell in that price range.

We will pay more if we can sell a record for more than $5.

Sometimes we will pay much more! But most records can’t be sold for more than a few dollars; condition, title, scarcity, and the particular pressing are big considerations.

For trading used CDs or LPs for cash, we must see the seller’s driver’s license, and copy the ID number. Rainy Day may need additional information from the seller and the product he/she intends to sell.

We buy turntables, DJ mixers, receivers, and speakers.

We buy turntables in functioning and non-functioning condition, as well as hi-fi equipment, preamps, and mixers used with turntables. You can bring them in to our store when our stereo buyer is here for review (Tues-Friday 2-8 PM), or call us at 357-4755 to discuss the items further.
