It’s not just record shops that are prime for digging in, charity shops are also full vintage wax and dusty classics.

As vinyl sales , charity shops are reaping the rewards as proved by an Oxfam music store on Byres Road in Glasgow, Scotland.

The store says the records it sold in 2017 – alongside cassettes, CDs and instruments – contributed towards a £100,000 prit. This was more than ever other Oxfam outlet in the UK.

Manager the store, Andrew McWhinnie, said: “We have tried to do what the independent shops do,” he says. “Instead it being just a bargain shop, we have tried to categorise the music and try to make it as fun as we can for people to go through.”
