What’s this all about?

Twice a year we hold a record sale here at the ARC, usually early in June and December. Each year approximately 250,000 recordings are donated to the ARC. We sort through these, make sure we have the two best copies in our collection, then sell off all third copies. Our sales improve the permanent collection, free up space on the shelves and put a great many lovely and hard to get items back into the hands of music lovers.

Please consider donating LPs + CDs  — to help us build the collection and give us extra copies for our sale!


If you join the ARC and become a Friend at any level, you get to shop early and party late at the Thursday night ‘Members Only’ party held before the sale opens to the general public. Our party is a fun event where you can meet other ARC members and collectors. We’re always on the lookout for party sponsorship, so give us a call if interested in helping. Past sponsors have included: Krrb, BMI, Jamie-Guyden Records, Rolling Stone Magazine, Atlantic Records and Beggars Banquet.

Our new trade agreement

Our ever-growing collection of donated books got us thinking. At a sale, or anytime really, you can bring in ANY MUSIC-RELATED BOOK that we don’t already have and trade it for one at our sale of equal, or there-abouts, face (list) value.  We’re very fleible if books are rare.   Just check our online book catalog. Make sure we do not have the book you want to trade. We get books you no longer want and we get ones the ARC does not own. Win-win. No money involved.

Shop Amazon Smile + Support ARC

Shop @ Amazon Smile and ARC gets a teeny, tiny, really smallish, itsy-bitsy but nice donation from Amazon.com. You can buy anything — from windshield wipers to baby wipes — getting things you were going to buy anyway, giving us a hand at the same time.
