    Sit and Spin Records, 2 years and growing

    January 8th, 2015 marked the 2 year anniversary for us here at Sit & Spin Records.  In that time we've grown in so many ways.  Our friend, Glass on Glass, moved out giving us more room to buy and sell records, shirts and more.  We've added hundreds of new release titles; reissues, new artists and albums, LPs and 7"s.  Our locals section is loaded with all kinds of music in a mix of genres, all created right here in Philadelphia. 

    With all this expanding, we're ready to buy more used records.  Of course we're always looking to buy punk, hardcore and metal collections big or small.  However, we're also interested in rock, psych, blues, jazz, folk, electronic/industrial and more. 

    Have a collection you'd like to sell?  Please call, 267-773-8345, or visit during regular business hours.  If you're calling, please be prepared to answer some questions about your collection (we advise that you have the records on hand when calling).


    Monday - Friday 12pm - 8pm
    Saturday 11am - 8pm
    Sunday 11am - 5pm

    If you have a list or photos of a collection you'd like to sell, you can send that to sitandspinrecords[@]gmail[dot]com.

    Sit & Spin Records is located in South Philadelphia, nestled between the Italian Market and Passyunk Avenue on the corner of 9th and Reed Streets.  Street-side parking is available and there is also a public lot caddy-corner from our store and lots of shopping within walking distance.
