    My favorites for new Vinyl are:
    Red Trumpet
    Music Direct
    Acoustic Sounds
    Diverse Vinyl
    Diverse is in the UK but they offer very speedy shipping and sometimes it's cheaper to get UK pressings from them than to order it from one of the domestic resellers.
    For used vinyl, it's great if you can find a local used record store. You can also do really well shopping around Goodwill or Salvation army. I've come back from Goodwill hauls with 40 records for under $30... Can't beat that.
    Online, the only place I shop for used records is
    GEMM.

    Check the local stores in your area and look for Goldmine magazine. Thousands upon thousands of vinyl lp's, 45's, ep's etc. from both professional sources and private collectors. You'll find both set sale prices and auctions listed. A treasure trove of both B & M stores and online sites that you'd otherwise never hear about (many of which have been in business for years). In addition, they have some great articles and usually always cover the discography of one artist each month.

    Not long ago I bought an obscure 30-year old mint-condition vinyl record I was interested in from www.lastvestige.com. The record was $8, the shipping (priority mail, well packed) was $6.

    I just got a record I ordered from CDNow. It was very well-packaged (unlike Amazon) and didn't take too long to arrive.
