About

I can't keep all these great records for myself, it just wouldn't be fair to you.

VinylStandard's beginning were simple and organic. I started amassing a collection of records and found that perhaps I shouldn't be keeping all of them for myself. Following the lead of my lovely wife, curator of the famous NellsVintageHouse.etsy.com, I started my own Etsy shop - Vinyl Standard.

Vinyl Standard is really the only thing that separates me your common record hoarder. If I wasn't selling the albums in my shop it would be difficult to rationalize the amount of square footage dedicated to my personal collection. I've had to limit my personal collection to mostly rock (my Nirvana and Pearl Jam being my most prized albums) and punk rock, followed by classic rock. I also keep some Motown, some Bebop, some Hip-hop, a few blues albums, some reggae, some classic country (Hank, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and a few others), and maybe a few other genres scattered in there in small numbers (I love records with surfers on the cover and also Hawaiian albums that were recorded in Hawaii with Hawaiian record labels).

I've been tempted by some great looking Michael Jackson records and a few others and before announcing "I'm keeping this," I must remind myself that I'm not a hoarder and I don't collect pop albums, just the many categories named above. I like to think I re-home great albums to people that will love them more than me. I'm really just doing the world a service. No need to thank me, I'm happy to help.

I run this store for the love of music. Vinyl, for me, is a celebration of enduring love for the artist and album. In an age where access to songs, albums, even entire discographies can be achieved instantly, I see that the vinyl tradition remains as the ultimate medium for music.


Vinyl looks better, feels better, and sounds better. A record collection is what makes a house a home. Your personal record collection is as revealing as your wardrobe. Love of Vinyl Records is here to help you build your collection with albums that you will love to own, listen to and display.


I won’t sell records in condition that I wouldn’t want to receive myself. I’ll note any flaws on a record or album cover. If you have a question I’ll get back to you within 24 hours. I’m here to help you.
