Please bring in your items to sell in a box with your name and phone and we will let you know when it has been assessed. Most times we can do it while you wait but sometimes with big collections we will contact you later when it is done. We prefer you return to the store for cash or store credit, however we can mail you a store credit or a company check.


EVERYDAY MUSIC no longer buys everything, aka "ANY & ALL." Due to supply and demand we can no longer do so. We will buy according to stock/overstock, supply & demand. We apologize for any inconvenience, but times they are a-changin'.

We do buy used cds, dvds, and records.

We are no longer buying VHS, Laserdiscs or '78s !!

Please note: The only remaining store as of August 1, 2022 is downtown Portland on Burnside.


No appointment is necessary, just come in during business hours. in If we're busy it may take a little longer for an employee to assess your collection, but we will price out each item individually so you can sell some or all of what you bring in. ***Depending on the size of your collection and how busy we are WE MAY ASK YOU LEAVE YOUR COLLECTION FOR LATER PROCESSING.*** All CDs must be in jewel cases or original packaging with artwork. Missing artwork will bring you a lower price, if any.

We reserve the right to refuse collections in suitcases, oversize boxes, boxes falling apart, ratty grocery bags, dirty duffel bags, moldy containers, LPs with cat piss and the like. We are not the dump.

What you'll get depends on supply and demand for your title(s) and condition of the disc and artwork. Supply and demand means if we have 200 copies of R.E.M.'s Monster in stock already and you bring us yours, you'll get a very little for it. Supply is always changing however, and what was once a glut (Green Day Dookie) and brought the minimum, can sometimes have a good run and when supply dwindles because demand increases, your copy of Dookie is suddenly worth a little bit more!

DVDs & Blu-Ray work the same way. WE ARE NO LONGER BUYING VHS. If you want to "donate" them, drop them off, that's okay, we'll take 'em and process them (and by process I sometimes mean "Dumpster") but we won't pay cash for 'em anymore.

We will also sometimes make house calls for large vinyl collections! And by large we mean 500+ records that have not been damaged by smoke, cat pee or mold please.

WE ARE NO LONGER BUYING 78s OR VHS MOVIES. There just isn't a market for them anymore, at least one that makes it worth our time.

And, it's the same for 7-inch singles, but there is a market for obscure rock and R & B 45s and also punk and new wave and late-1980s and 1990s indie rock. Again, we'll pay for things we can resell, otherwise, it's pennies.

Cassettes will bring you a penny a piece or less.


We offer you our top price cash.


You can certainly use it to purchase other music in the store, but we don't offer more for trade.
