I have gone past this place hundreds of times to/from work and always wondered about it. Not even necessarily in terms of records but because it looks so odd. It is a house that has been converted into a thrift store. While it stands on a major thoroughfare, it is cloaked in foliage and the exterior is definitely in disrepair. It was not until a couple weeks ago that it crossed my mind it would be worthy of trying to see if they had any vinyl. I enlisted my girlfriend to look into the matter and she sent me this email:
OK, so I look up the # and call, and the first # is disconnected. Then I find the FB page you mentioned and called the # there. An older lady answered... "hello?." Anyway, all retardation aside, she sells most of the stuff on Ebay now, and are open by apt only. She says she has a crate of albums, which I'll be viewing by apt Tuesday @ 1230.
Its getting weirder and weirder.
I love it.
I immediately recommended that I would come along as one of our favorite lunch spots is directly across the street. So "it's a date!"
We got there a bit before 12:30 and waited. And waited. At about 12:45 we called to find the proprietor was 'on their way, stuck in traffic'. After about 30 minutes tardy, she arrived. We entered to find a somewhat cramped but not necessarily messy/hoarder level space. There were about 35 LPs in a bin and 20 or so 7" records loose nearby. She immediately offered me the whole entire bin for $25 I believe. I laughed and said no thanks - I've gotten offers such as this from thrift stores before.
I did unearth a copy (my second) of 'My Love' and we spent $14 on that record, a couple others and an old glass peanut butter jar of buttons. I think the owner was purposely punishing us for not taking all the records off her hands, we surely did pay a toll. She allowed us to leave the car in her lot while we ate across the street however, and that was worth a buck. Fun trip.
