Books in Well Read Condition

This is a well-read book, which means that the previous owner probably really enjoyed it!

Clothing Condition Guidelines

Each and every item we receive undergoes rigorous quality inspection before being listed.

The items we accept are sorted into the following conditions:

New With Tags

This item is practically new with original brand tags still in place!

Like New

This item is relatively new without tags in place. It resembles a piece of clothing that have been worn once or twice, with no visible signs of wear!

Gently Used

The item is in decent condition with no major flaws. There may be slight visible signs of wear, such as light fading or pilling in areas such as the knees, seams, and hems due to being worn or washed.

Signs of Wear

The item has clearly been worn but can still be loved! There may be clear signs of wear such as light pilling, fading, or stains.

How We Measure

We hand-measure every piece of clothing we list, which is then standardised to a common sizing chart referenced to as 'Thryft Size'

Vinyl Condition Guidelines

We grade the pre-loved records by both their Media Condition, and their Sleeve Condition using the following guidelines:

Mint (M)

Absolutely perfect in every way. Certainly never been played, possibly even still sealed. Used sparingly as a grade, if at all.

Near Mint (NM or M-)

A nearly perfect record. A NM or M- record has more than likely never been played, and the vinyl will play perfectly, with no imperfections during playback. he record should show no obvious signs of wear. A 45 RPM or EP sleeve should have no more than the most minor defects, such as any sign of slight handling. An LP cover should have no creases, folds, seam splits, cut-out holes, or other noticeable similar defects. The same should be true of any other inserts, such as posters, lyric sleeves, etc.

Very Good Plus (VG+)

A Very Good Plus record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it. Defects should be more of a cosmetic nature, not affecting the actual playback as a whole. Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are "OK". The label may have some ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable. Spindle marks may be present. Picture sleeves and inner sleeves will have some slight wear, slightly turned-up corners, or a slight seam split. An LP cover may have slight signs of wear, and may be marred by a cut-out hole, indentation, or cut corner. In general, if not for a couple of minor things wrong with it, this would be Near Mint.

Very Good (VG)

Many of the defects found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as with light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound. Labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers (or their residue) attached. The same will be true of picture sleeves or LP covers. However, it will not have all of these problems at the same time.
