Email us at info(at)cardinalrecordco.com for more information! We're happy to take a look at your collection, big or small.

We ask that any collections over 50 LPs call ahead and make an appointment. We are mostly looking for records from the 1960s - Present that are in great shape. Some sleeve damage or moderate ring-wear is okay, but we will refuse records outright with deep scratches across the grooves or significant warps.

From time to time, we may pause buying depending on available space. If you're ever curious, call ahead. We also have the right to refuse any collection for any reason.


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented the following shopping guidelines for our store.

  • We are currently operating at a limited capacity. The physical storefront is smaller, so from time to time we may limit the amount of people inside to ensure distance can be maintained.
  • You MUST wear a properly fitted mask to enter. The mask must be worn over your nose and mouth and secured under your chin. The mask must be worn the entire time you are with us. This is non-negotiable. If you leave your mask at home, we have single-use disposable masks at the door. Masks with ventilator ports, neck gaiters, or bandanas in the place of a mask are not allowed.
  • Please use the hand sanitizer at the entrance. We have placed a couple of additional bottles through the store as well.
  • Please maintain a 6ft physical distance from people not in your party whenever possible.
  • NO food or drink.
  • No bathroom access is available at this time.


Our online shop is always open. We ship anywhere in the United States and most of our inventory ships international. For a quick view of what we currently have in stock online, click here!
