Looking for a gift for the music fan who has everything? How about an entire record store?

The owner of On the Beat Records in London has put his store up for sale on eBay for a cool $480,000.

Owner Tim Derbyshire, 59, opened the shop in 1979. 

He's trying to find someone to take over the store's eclectic stock of records, posters and music memorabilia from the 1960s to the 1980s, and keep the place running, according to The New York Times.

It's "a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live the High Fidelity life!" the posting notes, calling the store "the oldest record shop in the center of Swinging London." 

The post had received 35 bids as of Monday morning.
