Welcome to the Flip Side Records website!! We are pleased to present to you extensive listings of hard to find items (in all formats) at reasonable prices!! We too are record collectors and music fans. We've spent many years now dealing with new and used music of all kinds. We come by our expertise by a lengthy process. We started out dealing records on the street. We've combed the region for yard sales, junk shops and flea markets. We've worked in a number of used record stores. We topped that off by working as buyer and manager in several new music stores. We do, of course, have our favorite artists and genres. Our overall focus, however, is much broader than personal taste. It is our continuing intention to offer quality items in all styles of music spanning the history of recorded music.
In May 1996, we opened our store in Brookline, Massachusetts. The reaction from collectors, dealers and the general public has been overwhelmingly favorable since then. We believe we know why. From the outset, our ongoing reputation for fairness has been an overriding concern.
In a way, this website is an outgrowth of our mail order
business. As a result of our auctions and set sales in
Goldmine and eBay (not to mention Half.com and Amazon.com),
we've made friends all over the world. We're proud of our
eBay profile with thousands of positive feedbacks (feel
free to view them under the ID flipsideweb.com, or click
on the "Auction Items" link
on our main page of this website. This will also allow
to see any current auctions we are running on eBay.) We
will continue to bend over backwards to insure fair grading,
fair prices and accurate representation our merchandise.
The items offered here on our website are special items
distinguished by unusually fine condition (cover, disc
or both), promotional release status or moderate to extreme
rarity. Notwithstanding minor flaws (if any), the overall
appearance of each item is striking enough of Flip Side
to set it aside for mail order. Our guiding principle here
is to offer only items of quality that we ourselves would
accept for our personal collections.
In January, 2006, Flip Side Records relocated to the warmer climes of Reston, Virginia. (We must say that we were touched by the massive outpouring of support from our Brookline customers and friends during our final months in Massachusetts.) Flip Side continues as a strictly online business, with the same goals of high quality and service. Long range goals are to open a new brick and mortar store in the Fairfax, Virginia/Washington, DC area. We appreciate your interest, your business and your comments. We're always adding new items, so please visit us again soon!!
