What to Trade
Deaf Ear Records accepts all sorts of trade-ins!  From music, to figures, to games, to movies, and all sorts of cultural items you might not expect.  If we think we can find it a new home we'll take it!  Unlike a pawn shop, we will give you the fairest price we can manage.  We love trade-ins.  Since we are locally owned and take in a massive variety of items it may take 24 hours or so to price larger collections but you can be rest assured that we will give you the best deal we can!  Some items can be traded in for store credit and others for cash.  Not sure?  Bring your stuff in and we'll be happy to help!

Local Artists
In an effort to support and represent our unique community here in La Crosse, Wisconsin at Deaf Ear we sell the CD's of local music artists free of charge!  Space is also made available to local artists expressing themselves through other mediums.  We offer retail space for items that tie into Deaf Ear's themes and product types for a small consignment of 20%.  At this time we are proud to showcase the prints of local photographer, Bob Good who also shot many of the photos we used for our website.  The artwork on many of the doors you see on Deaf Ear's Main Floor were also done by local artists,  Eric Schandelmeier and Shannon Pittman.

Our vast CD selection, and above that prints available for sale from local photographer Bob Good!
