Local, friendly, shop

I've just been in and sold a few of my dad's collection.
The owner was one of the nicest people I've ever met.
Really friendly and gave me a great price for my collection.
He has a great knowledge of music and it really shows how much he loves doing what he does best.
Not many local vinyl shops left around, especially great friendly ones like Sifters.
Highly recommended and 5 stars.
You a true gentlemen and was an absolute pleasure to do business with.
Thank you
(The big baldy guy that came in with more bags than Roy cropper) 😁

5 Star Google Review

Made famous by Oasis in the song Shakermaker. Absolutely love this place as record shops like this don't seem to exist anymore. All types of music in there all at good prices. Vinyl, CD's even cassettes.

Highly Recommended

Great shop, nice owner to have a chat to about music, prices that will not break the bank balance. Always something different to find. A proper back in the day record shop.

Lovely Experience

Lovely experience in Sifters today. Pete is a gentleman. Loved chatting to him and came away with some choice vinyl at great prices. He won't be beaten on price or on his welcome. Top man.

A very lovely record store with a Oasis song guiding you :) Mr. Sifter is humorous and he has a great collection of records and cassette!
