    I've used discogs to buy a few limited editions that I missed out on. It's very straight forward process as a buyer and generally the second place I go to look if amazon don't have what I want. Not sure what the fees are but you will have a good market of buyers.

    Have bought cd's on discogs too, from abroad.
    but for selling lp's presumably you need very good packaging and signed for delivery if selling ~£200 vinyl (I thought this was a recent release until I looked )

    I sold a load of my old vinyl on eBay, including my green vinyl of Nirvana Bleach. Just make sure you follow the eBay guide on packaging vinyl, iirc it involves removing the record from the sleeve and insert, wrapping in bubble wrap and sandwiching between cardboard (I used double fluted corrugated cardboard). I never got any complaints about packaging but many compliments. That was a few years ago though and the guide may have changed so do check. Good luck with the sales, would be keen to hear if it's a success or not.

    Ebay seems to be the one, some mad prices people are paying, it's all about the money :)

    No worries will do. Tbh theres a few hundred of the damn things that my dad collected in the 60s and 70s. At one point had a couple thousand but didn't have space when moving so they got tipped. :(
