About us

Intoxica – previously located on the Portobello Road in London – has been selling bespoke vinyl to discerning music fans since 1994. It’s been online since 1996, more or less. It started as an unnamed stall in Camden Market in 1983.
Intoxica now operates as an online business selling rare and collectible 20th Century vinyl records. Visits to inspect items or stock can be arranged but only by appointment.
We specialise in 1960s Beat – Garage – Psychedelia / Punk – Post Punk – New Wave / 1950s to 1960s Rhythm & Blues – Soul / Soundtracks / Modern Jazz / 1970s Rock / 1960s Reggae as well as covering many of the genres inbetween.
In addition, we sometimes sell books, posters & memorabilia. The occasional CD may also be listed.

We are always interested in buying good quality vinyl collections and individual records. Please contact us via phone or email to discuss.

We are also recognized by most UK Insurance Companies as vinyl evaluation experts.

Our Philosophy

Quality is everything at Intoxica. We take the utmost care with our products.

All records are individually cleaned with a high quality professional Loricraft record cleaner.

All the records are graded both visually and audibly (by listening to them). We place as much emphasis on what the vinyl sounds like as what it looks like. We always note defects.

We do not to sell records that jump, skip, or stick, but we cannot account for differences in turntable set up. Rest assured, if you are the least bit dissatisfied with your purchase we will refund you completely.

Finally, mistakes do happen. If you get a misgraded record return it to us and we’ll refund your money (including all postage).

Insurance Valuations

We do valuations for insurance purposes. For example, if you are initially insuring your collection or making an insurance claim, we can help you determine the true value.

Please contact us via post or email for the cost estimates for this service. Please note that since we are based in London, travelling to view a collection incurs extra costs. Please contact us via phone or email
