About

Sandy Lee's Attic - Vintage, Antiques and Handmade Goods.

Hi! I am Sandy. I own and manage this shop. I have tons of collectable antiques , vintage items and hand made goods.

Other shops I manage is:

The Pookie's Jewelry Box. where I sell Vintage and Handmade Jewelry and fashion Accessories. Visit:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/ThePookiesJewelryBox

I am fascinated with history and Americana. I find it a privilege to be able to consign these wonderful items for folks. Some items are even just to hard to give up and I end up buying them for myself.

The items I hand-make are made from recycled products. Things like old items that can be reused and be brought back to life. From stickers from the early 70's and trinkets and embellishments picked up in resale to some new products made of recycled material.

Thanks for visiting!

RECORD INFORMATION:

Guidelines for assessing the grading / condition of used records
(Based on
The Goldmine® Record Album Price Guide Vol. 7, May 2013)

{Grade/Grade = Record / Cover}

MINT (M):
These are absolutely perfect in every way. Often rumored but rarely seen, Mint should never be used as a grade unless more than one person agrees that the record or sleeve truly is in this condition. There is no set percentage of the Near Mint value these can bring; it is best negotiated between buyer and seller.

NEAR MINT (NM OR M-):
A good description of a NM record is “it looks like it just came from a retail store and it was opened for the first time.” In other words, it’s nearly perfect. Many dealers won’t use a grade higher than this, implying (perhaps correctly) that no record or sleeve is ever truly perfect. NM records are shiny, with no visible defects. Writing, stickers or other markings cannot appear on the label, nor can any “spindle marks” from someone trying to blindly put the record on the turntable. Major factory defects also must be absent; a record and label obviously pressed off center is not Near Mint. If played, it will do so with no surface noise. (NM records don’t have to be “never played”; a record used on an excellent turntable can remain NM after many plays if the disc is properly cared for.) NM covers are free of creases, ring wear and seam splits of any kind. NOTE: These are high standards, and they are not on a sliding scale. A record or sleeve from the 1950s must meet the same standards as one from the 1990s or 2000s to be Near Mint! It’s estimated that no more than 2 to 4 percent of all records remaining from the 1950s and 1960s are truly Near Mint. This is why they fetch such high prices, even for more common items. They must meet these standards to qualify!

VERY GOOD PLUS (VG+) :
A good description of a VG+ record is “except for a couple minor things, this would be Near Mint.” Most collectors, especially those who want to play their records, will be happy with a VG+ record. VG+ records may show some slight signs of wear, including light scuffs or very light scratches that do not affect the listening experience. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are OK. Minor signs of handling are OK, too, such as telltale marks around the center hole, but repeated playing has not misshapen the hole. There may be some very light ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable. VG+ covers should have only minor wear. A VG+ cover might have some very minor seam wear or a split (less than one inch long) at the bottom, the most vulnerable location. Also, a VG+ cover may have some defacing, such as a cut-out marking. Covers with cut-out markings can never be considered Near Mint.

VERY GOOD (VG):
VG records have more obvious flaws than their counterparts in better shape. They lack most of the original gloss found on factory-fresh records. Groove wear is evident on sight, as are light scratches deep enough to feel with a fingernail. When played, a VG record has surface noise, and some scratches may be audible, especially in soft passages and during a song’s intro and ending. But the noise will not overpower the music otherwise. Minor writing, tape or a sticker can detract from the label. Many collectors who have jukeboxes will use VG records in them and not think twice. They remain a fine listening experience, just not the same as if it were in better shape. VG covers will have many signs of human handling. Ring wear in the middle or along the edges of the cover where the edge of a record would reside, is obvious, though not overwhelming. Some more creases might be visible. Seam splitting will be more obvious; it may appear on all three sides, though it won’t be obvious upon looking. Someone might have written or it or stamped a price tag on it, too.

GOOD(G):
The record still plays through without skipping, so it can serve as filler until something better comes along. But it has significant surface noise and groove wear, and the label is worn, with significant ring wear, heavy writing, or obvious damage caused by someone trying to remove tape or stickers and failing miserably. A Good cover has ring wear to the point of distraction, has seam splits obvious on sight and may have even heavier writing, such as, for example, huge radio station letters written across the front to deter theft.

FAIR (F): Records are cracked, impossibly warped, or skip and/or repeat when an attempt is made to play them. Covers are so heavily damaged that you almost want to cry.

Fair Record Pricing Policy

• Assuming the record is listed, records are appraised based on Goldmine Records Vol. 7 (May 2013) Record Pricing Guide. Goldmine Records pricing standards are based on the Goldmine Records grading guide. Goldmine lists record pricing based on NM (Near Mint) grading conditions.
• List pricing on a record album in the Goldmine Record pricing guide is divided in half and then the record and cover are graded separately based on that price.
• Record and cover are given a grade. (Ex: NM/VG+ = Record/ Cover)
• The following method is used on pricing the album:
o M = 100% Markup over Goldmine list pricing but is negotiable
o NM = 100% of Goldmine list pricing
o VG+ = 75% of Goldmine list pricing
o VG = 50% of Goldmine list pricing
o G- = 25% of Goldmine list pricing
o F = 10% of Goldmine list pricing
• Box set Accessories are considered when applicable using the following method:
o All accessories included = no change in sub total listing price
o Missing 1 item = 2% off of the sub total listing price
o More then 1 item is missing = 5% off of the sub total listing price
• If the album is including it’s original inner sleeve protector $2.00 is added to the price.
• Promotion records and unique record identifiers may also add to the price of the listing in the event that the record in the event that the listing in the Goldmine Record Pricing Guide doesn’t specify these indications. This will be identified in the description of Record Album listing along with the percentage that was added to the list price.
• If an item listed is not available through Goldmine records pricing guide, prices listed will be listed based on average post price on Music Match. com regardless of condition.
• If an item is not available through Goldmine records pricing guide or listed on Music Match, the item will be posted as "make me an offer" or pay $100.00, regardless of condition.
