We are closing down indefinitely as a retail shop open to the public beginning Thursday February 17, 2017. Wombleton will continue to exist in some shape or form with occasional pop-up events likely happening in our same space starting in the next couple of months after some major restructuring. Thank you for your patronage and we’ll see you around.

“Hello, I must be going to Wombleton for some holiday shopping this year”

It’s been a comedy of errors. Back in June we spent weeks working late and put out around 3500 cheapee $2 LPs on the floor, our first cheap section in years comprising many interesting markdowns and surprises… and then we had a big flood about 10 days later. We lost them all but a few hundred and I’d already dumpster’d 2000 just before then. So we added a couple of hundred deuces that were left in the back and then set about refreshing the shelves- adding catalog and oddities and doubles. Tons of them. We have browsable bins now under some of the shelves and have taken our first stab at a semi-legit country section (and folk). You can pull up a chair and it’s the easiest flipping in the shop. Come take a look… there’s lots in there new, cheaper and weirder than we’ve had in several years. Plus a brand new 45rpm party pile of a couple of thousand+ $1 70s/80s lost classics & Every 1’s a winner at Wombleton this summer!
For Record Store Day this Saturday April 16 everything in the shop will be on SALE! All records $20 & up are 15% off; $19 & under are 30% off .
I spent all night taking this damn photo – I hope it comes across; kind of a lame gimmick- sorry!
If you’re planning your first visit to our shop this Saturday you should know that we generally sell all used LPs & 45s- mostly first pressings from the UK & Europe – No Reissues; no RSD product – but a selection unlike ANY other store in the USA. We’ll be celebrating our 6th Record Store Day all weekend; please come by and say hello!
Here’s some interesting stuff we picked up locally this past week. What you see below plus over 200 similar titles. Not our usual sort of thing but worth a look! Lots of much needed David Bowie, Neil Young, Grateful Dead, Eno, Dylan, The Band, Hendrix, Donovan etc etc
MORE nice Wombleton new arrivals just in (brought from Canada); Store hours Tues-Thurs/Sun 12-6; Fri & Sat 12-8; closed Mondays
WOMBLETON RECORDS 5123 York Blvd Los Angeles CA 90042
As you may have heard we just put out literally thousands of fresh used vinyl LPs, most of which originated from a recent buying trip to England & Holland. The bins are stocked ‘n’ stuffed with many rare gems & we have been refreshing and restocking doubles daily. If you haven’t checked out the new haul since it arrived a few days ago, visit us soon during the Xmas shopping season to find nice gifts you won’t turn up at any other shop in the USA!
NOT PICKED OVER! Even if you missed the big debut of our UK/Euro LPs a multitude of the best titles are in stock and we’re adding vinyl daily to keep the bins full, fresh & interesting. **These photos are all from Sat Dec 15 after 2am**
GIVING TREE! Wombleton’s magic holiday giving tree is stocked with “decent” & attractive 45rpm 7″ singles. Get one FREE with any purchase. These are randomly refreshed as they deplete; All are somewhat desirable titles in great condition.
MYSTERY BAGS! Under the tree are the $3 mystery bag pre-wrapped & ready Xmas presents- themed bundles of LPs (also in great condition); some random, unknown and disturbing records are in those packs. What’s more they are gift-wrapped in attractive class of ’77 McLaren-esque style! These hilarious and intriguing LPs are certain to liven up any stodgy family holiday shindig! You’ll be sure to get a laugh (or groan) from the recipient in most cases. Highly recommended.
CASSETTES! We don’t usually bother photographing our new arrival used cassettes but here they are for a change.
OPEN 7 DAYS! Yes, we will be open for business seven days a week until Xmas and probably the week following, too! Ian & Elden await your visit!
