    Yeah they are definitely on the higher side, but I've found some good deals there. For the rarer stuff, they do tend to price high (or at least at discogs average prices). They will haggle though.

    With discogs and ebay, and the wealth of information that records shops have at their finger tips for pricing, I feel like the places with consistent deals are fewer and farther between by the day.

    I will for sure check out Sit and Spin.

    I'm partial to my "local" - Electric Avenue in West Chester and PREX is awesome as well.

    Electric Avenue is a good one. I like Jupiter Records, just across the border in Arden, DE too.

    Jupiter's a fun place.
    Mr. Lucky out in Lancaster's decent.
    The Record Connection out in Ephrata is good.
    Shady Dog in Wayne is cool.

    I want to try to get up to Double Decker in Allentown sometime.

    Anyone go to the monthly record fairs out in Lancaster? I want to check one of those out as well.

    I've only been to Record Connection once but remember it being pretty great. I do enjoy stopping by Shady Dog from time to time also.

    +1 for Jupiter. I've only been to the Arden location, but I try to go whenever I'm visiting my parents who live right across the border in PA.

    I used to go to DD a lot to buy, but their prices for used LP's have risen exponentially in the past 2 years. I'd say it's worth it to check out once if you've never been. Even better if you have things to sell, as they pay out well.
