I have a collection of 1,200 classical CDs. The collection, which includes many boxed sets, is mostly Baroque to early Romantic and has little 20th century music; it's particularly strong in opera, Bach keyboard music, the chamber music of Haydn, Mozart, Schubert lieder, and the great classical symphonies from 1780 to 1840.
As a result of downsizing I no longer have space to store them, and I'd like to find them a good home and recover a fair proportion of the sizeable investment made in them.
I've looked at shops in London that buy second-hand music CDs, and the prices offered seem measly compared with the prices they charge for selling the same CD on to someone else.
Does anyone have any suggestions for how to cut out the middle man? I'd be very grateful for any advice you can offer.
