Ed's Awesome Sounds...no longer awesome :-(

Not sure if any of you guys have bought from Ed's Awesome Sounds, but if you have and have anything on order, he just shut down.  Here is the info:


I bought quite a bit from him.  He specialized in UK labels and pressings.  Always had discounted prices, shipping was always free and he did, every so often, a buy 2, get 1 free special.  Wonder why he couldn't make it?

I will miss the deals...

Maybe it was the deals? Just kidding. I hate seeing small businesses go out of business. I think the world is a better place when most business is small and local.

But so many factors can come into play that aren't even economic or financial.

as a former self-employed, it's "a lot of work" being in business for yourself. 
Ed: If you are reading this: You had the RIGHT IDEA - you gave your customers GREAT PRODUCT and SERVICE. I am very SAD that you could not continue to make the kind of profit that would have allowed you to STAY in business.
Your excellent products will be MISSED.

God Bless and TAKE CARE!

WHAT DAY was the bankruptcy filed? My "MARNIE" dual LP was due to be mailed 4/26. How close was I to having that LP mailed?

 Not very.  I got the notification on March 18th.  I had to file (2) separate refund requests with PayPal, but PayPal completely took care of it.
Sad to hear.
we need more smaller vinyl dealers.
especially ones who specialize somewhat.
I spent thousands with this guy.  Seemed super nice and all.  He also allowed orders to pour in up the the last minute even after I had a communication with him about a particular large purchase that he advertised on facebook just before (within hours) it all came falling down.  Needless to say - I am thankful I was able to get into my account to get all the proof I needed to then to to PAYPAL to seek out full refunds (which did happen).  I feel a bit misled but all ended up ok (despite the work to get refunds).  The deals were amazing and I have friends in that same business and they could not believe some of the deals this guy had.  It might be poor business choices or something else.  It was nice while it lasted.  - R
Desperate  times sometimes require desperate measures. He could have been clinging to some hope of recovery, and meant no monetary harm to anyone. JMHO.
