“Rather than new albums or 7″s, The Retro Store hand-pick three second-hand LPs. They offer a range of packages, from a single month up to a year. Long Love Vinyl’s delivery consists of A Trick of the Tail by Genesis, ELO’s A New World Record, and Little Creatures by Talking Heads. Not too shabby!”
That Sounds Amazing, What Can I Expect?
- Firstly, we don’t send out brand new LP’s. If you have ever looked at buying records on Amazon or HMV, you would know that scoring 3 full-length records for £24.95 would be impossible. We spend days hand picking original records from the past, making sure they are in great condition through testing before we send them out. Curious where your money goes? Click here to find out.
- A selection of snacks, sweets and treats to compliment your listening.
- Your invitation to join our monthly #GetRetro competition, and participate in this months activities and plans.
- If you’re lucky enough, a golden ticket with a freebie from another business that we love.
- The rest of your goodies are all digital! Dig into your Retro Rewards, be part of the #GetRetro community, and refer your friends for £10 off your next box!

Still Not Sure? Let’s Dig Into Details
We get lot’s of questions about our box before members sign up. Here we detail a few relevant to the vinyl box, to clear things up.
What happens if I get a duplicate?
Dealing with duplicates can be really annoying for many of our members, and when it happens, it can be hard for us to independently verify each case that someone has a duplicate, and time-consuming getting it fully swapped.
We’ve launched a Swap Shop Facebook group for growing that perfect vinyl collection, and to swap those LP’s which you aren’t too keen on any more.
When do boxes ship?
At the moment, we’re working with our team to battle through backlogs after absolutely crazy demand we did not anticipate. Not having an official supply chain since our goods are second hand didn’t help either. For details on backlogs, click here.
When our deliveries are on-time and we’re working to capacity, we ship the vinyl box between the 8th and 22nd of each month.
What quality of items can I expect in my box?
Dealing with second-hand goods is always a fun problem to have. You can literally see when an item has been well loved and has been taken good care of.
When we buy stock, we look for the following condition:
All records have sleeves (either original or replaced), with album covers/gatefolds not broken. We will re-glue any broken record jackets prior to dispatch. All LP’s will be in VG quality or higher. Records may require a light dusting before playing. In some cases, good quality LP’s will be provided if the value of the record is higher than our typical LP.
How much does shipping cost?
We offer free shipping across the UK for all of our boxes. That means that part of your monthly cost accounts for packing, materials, and getting your parcel sent out through Royal Mail. This cost typically comes to around £3. For shipping in Europe and beyond, we absorb £3 of the shipping rate, and you guys pay the rest. This keeps the full process transparent, and we ship all of our parcels through Royal Mail International Standard, which aims to deliver your parcels within 5-7 working days!
This means you can expect the following shipping costs at checkout:
EU & Europe 🇪🇺 £5.75, USA 🇺🇸 £11.20, Canada 🇨🇦 £11.20, Australia & New Zealand 🇦🇺 £11.20
