Purchasing Policy

Call before you haul: 519-658-9641

Obama on the phone

Barack Obama always calls Millpond before bringing in his records & books.

Give yourself a break! Don’t haul in your goods until you’ve spoken with us. Call us to schedule an appointment. We need enough time to assess them properly.

Due to a large over-stock in books, we are currently not taking books. 

If you are selling records, we offer cash or trade.

When buying records, we look for:

  • mainly these music categories: ROCK, PSYCH, POP, PUNK, REGGAE, BLUES and JAZZ, also some comedy & soundtracks
  • records and outer sleeves in excellent condition
  • We do NOT purchase classical, big band/orchestra, and most country music
  • We do NOT purchase used CDs, tapes, DVDs, VHS tapes, 8-tracks, 78s, or video games

We are NOT accepting books at this time.

When we do take books, we look for the following:

  • Music biography
  • Classic authors including such as Steinbeck, Hemingway, Vonnegut, Virginia Woolf, etc
  • Science Fiction / Fantasy
  • Current Young Adult books
  • Beat poets, authors
  • Most books must be in as-new condition*
  • Classic fiction/poetry in at least good condition**
    • * As-new condition means that the book is clean, square and sound, without creases, stains or other blemishes.
    • ** Good condition means that spines and covers are intact and not creased, pages do not have turned corners and the text does not suffer from underlining or highlighting. Books that smell of smoke cannot be accepted.

Other stuff

  • It might take us several hours to assess your collection; please allow us time to properly determine the value of your collection.

Books or records that you bring in for assessment & do not come back to collect will be donated to a thrift store.
