VinylHunt.com is independently-owned and operated, with no crowd-sourcing, corporate backers or investors. All past development and ongoing expenses are funded by the site founder, Steve Salcedo (@stevesalcedo) and by revenue generated from on-site advertising. A one-time expense for Ruby on Rails development was incurred in January 2012, and ongoing expenses include design time, continued Ruby on Rails development, and monthly hosting on GitHub and Heroku.
Here are a few ways you can help:
Support your independent record shops, and tell them if you found their store through VinylHunt.com. If your favorite shop is not listed, encourage them to list their shop for free, or suggest that we add their shop.
VinylHunt.com serves advertising that is relevant to you via various advertising partners. Advertising revenue is used to fund monthly operational costs.
It is worth repeating that VinylHunt.com is a self-started project funded by the website owner, with no backing from crowd-sourcing or grants. Like the record shops we support, we are independently-owned and operated. Donations to help fund the site and its continued maintenance and development are welcome. Thank you in advance.

If you have a store with multiple locations, use “Store Location” to distinguish locations based on city, street or neighborhood. For example, “Vinyl Hunt Record Store – Dupont” and “Vinyl Hunt Record Store – West Central” use “Store Location” to identify the “Dupont” and “West Central” locations.
This designation appears on profiles of stores that VinylHunt.com has visited.
