Is that an every Friday thing, or was it a two-time only thing? Both days I messed up and didn't get on it just between work and what not...
Kinda random - I suspect they will do another if it is getting people into the app / interface / acc structure.
It's scheduled for the first Friday of each month so next one is June 5th and July 3rd after that.

Where in Ireland can I buy vinyl online? Bought from Spindizzy a few weeks ago but want to spread the love. I find the Tower website hard to navigate. Anywhere else doing it?

i know this is an old thread but....

- if you want to know the postage from a discogs seller - just message them.

- in my experience postage from the UK is quite expensive but places like
Germany are cheap.
a 2 kg package from Germany still costs less than 10 Euro last time i checked !
that's 6 or maybe 7 LP's.
don't just assume UK postage is cheaper.


a place that gets mentioned regularly on Thumped is - hhv.de

https://www.hhv.de/shop/en

huge record mailorder and shop in Berlin with a very diverse stock of mostly vinyl.
they also sell on discogs.
i got some records off hhv.de a few days ago.

postage was even cheaper than i thought.
9 LP's for 10 Euro (!!!)
delivered in 7 or 8 days by Fed Ex.

Needed an Ethernet adapter thingy for my Macbook in a hurry. Can get them on Amazon but it would probably be a Wednesday delivery next week. Bit tight. Just rang up the Laptop Shop in Stephens Green.

Are they open for collection/delivery? Yes.
Do they have the thingy I need? Yes.
Can they deliver? Yes.
When? This afternoon!

And there is no delivery charge. These guys rule.

Vinyl order from the Berlin lads set to arrive by Thursday (ordered after close of business last Friday). That's pretty good service.
