As usual, our operating budget can’t keep up with our release schedule, so it’s time to raise some money. So, we are cleaning out the archives more and offering them up FOR FREE for those adventurous souls who love records, have some expendable income, and want to help support our little weirdo vanity label so we can continue vainly releasing weirdo artifacts.
With every release, we hold back a handful of copies for various reasons: 1) for our archives 2) so that if something happens in the post (lost/damaged, etc) or with the website, we have replacements 3) Accidental oversells, 4) In case one of the handful of our super regular customers misses out on something we can hook them up, etc. This is especially true for records we know will sell out immediately, so we keep even more of them.
The ethical quandary I find myself in is that these releases end up (sometimes not much) later selling on ebay and discogs for ridiculous amounts. I don’t want to take advantage of people who really wanted one but missed the initial sale, but I ALSO don’t want to sell one for the original price to someone who is just going to turn around and jack up the price and take advantage of people who really wanted one but missed the original sale. I ALSO don’t need to keep 10 copies of each packed away in a box in the lathe cave.
My main fantasy about these larger releases is that people will learn about PIAPTK through them and hopefully check out all the other artists that I love and work so hard to promote. So, I came up with this offer that hits all three objectives: Raise a little money without price gouging, turning people on to our other artists, and getting these valuable rarities out of the basement.
Spend $250+ and get your choice of the following highly sought after and out of print releases (many of which have sold for hundreds of dollars on the secondary market) FOR FREE. Or, if you want me to just pick you out a good, representative swath of the catalog, choose your freebie, and select "GRAB BAG" and I'll pick you out $300 worth of records for $250.00
JUST ADD THE ITEM TO YOUR CART AND THEN PURCHASE AT LEAST $250 WORTH OF OTHER RECORDS (must be included with an order of $250 or more, or free disc will NOT be included in the shipment!).
