Archives at Original Prices

So, for every record that I make, I always try to keep at least 5 copies of each lathe cut and 10 copies of each pressed record for my archives. This assures that I won't oversell it, have replacements in case the USPS does what the USPS does best (loses/destroys a package), have a copy for a good friend who is a super fan, etc etc.

Every once in a while I clean out the archives to raise money (and clear out space). But it's hard to set prices sometimes because of Ebay/Discogs flippers. If I mark them up a little over original price, but below discogs/popsike selling prices to remove profit incentive from flippers, people that really want them think I'm gouging. If I sell them at original price, ebay/discogs flippers do what they do and the person who comes to this page 10 minutes too late, who really wanted to own the thing ends up either not getting it or has to pay an inflated price.

That being said, this time around, I'm just selling these test pressings (many of which are expensive in secondary markets (Most have never been available at all and this is the first time anyone can get their hands on them) for the same price... $30.00. INCLUDING the crazy expensive Scott McMicken and other Soild Gold Test Pressings. However, to get the Scott McMicken stuff you have to email me personally via the contact form, after you've already checked out with your other purchases and convince me you aren't a flipper. If you've bought stuff from me before, tell me... I can just search through my sales.

UPDATE: I put this on Instagram for about 3 minutes and immediately wished I hadn't. I got flooded with folks, especially wanting In Your Dreams, and especially "IT". Everybody was PIAPTK's "biggest fan" (many had never bought much, if anything), and nobody was wanting to buy anything now except the Scottman LPs. So, maybe you'd better send me a photo of your PIAPTK and/or Dr Dog collection or something. And to be honest, if you haven't really bought much from PIAPTK in the past, and aren't buying anything in this batch, I would prefer to sell this stuff for super cheap to people who have and are. If you are broke, I get it. If Scott is the only thing on the label you like, I get it (but you have probably not actually checked out anything else on the label), but I don't have many of these, and they should go to people with more than a cursory interest in what we are trying to do here. It may take a day or two to get back to you.

If you ARE a flipper, let someone who actually wants to own it buy it... k?thx.bai
