I had heard the love story behind this shop and knew I had to come check this place out. I was happy to see Mrs. C was in the store, and to see that she's still keeping her husband's dream alive. It's a great place if you're looking for some old records that are not often found in your regular neighborhood record store. They only sell old records here but they're in great condition, and you are definitely getting what you paid for here in terms of quality.

This is one of my favorite record stores, it's very old school. They are well organized and the staff tends to be knowledagble on music and conversational. If you're looking for new records this is probably not your best choice. Although some records looked new, most are clearly old which isn't an issue for the average vinyl listener.

Don't mean to be rude, but the little old lady who works there may be too old to run this place.We went in yesterday and wanted to purchase a record for $18. She typed in the wrong number to the credit card machine and charged us $180 instead. She hadnt noticed. When we mentioned she overcharged us, she said she didn't know how to refund us, and that we would have to take it up with the credit card company.... Report it as fraud and hope they dispute the charge (and then she gets to keep my $180!). I told her to give me cash and she said she didn't have that much. They had to get some younger person from another store to come over and try to help (only after I put up a big enough fight that I wanted my money back from the overcharge).And maybe this is just a coincidence, but I feel the need to mention that about 10 hours after this happened, my credit card number was stolen. It seems very coincidental that this older woman wanted to overcharge me and then my credit card number was used fraudulently...

I first came to this store and was greeted by a younger gentleman who was very knowledgeable and helpful. He helped me find an Ahmad Jamal record that I’d been seeking for years. He found it in the back and gave me a very reasonable estimate. There was an older lady with white hair beside him who seemed to want to jack up the price simply because of my enthusiasm for the record, and I was glad she did not influence the young man. I immediately bought that record along with a few other records and left the store, excited to come back and give them more of my time and business.The next week, I came in and encountered the older woman with white hair. The younger man was not there, but there were three other gentlemen behind the counter. Unfortunately, although they were the ones i approached with questions, it was the older woman who butted in to justify the high price of a record I was holding by saying it was “hard to get.” The problem is that she never once looked at the record and therefore could not know what record I was holding. When I called her out on this, it became clear that she indeed did not know the record, which was a very recent press despite being a 1970s release, was well-worn, and was (so far as I could see) highly overpriced.I had genuine questions about the pricing of the record, and might have been convinced to make the purchase with good answers. However, when it became clear to me that the white-haired woman was much more concerned with preserving her pricing than justifying it or having a satisfied customer, I left immediately. The store has a solid collection of records in a multitude of genres, and if I knew the name of the first gentleman I encountered there, i would tell you (hopefully they didn’t fire him for being personable and helpful). I am torn over whether I will return. I get the feeling that the price of vinyl records are a bit inflated, but they never seemed to be artificially so until I walked into this record shop. Needless to say, I’d never want to give that white-haired woman my business.


This place has gone downhill. Old, dusty room with 45's along the wall and some LP's in the bins. Prices are WAY too high. I mean, who would pay 30-40 bucks for an Elvis 45 in VG+ condition with NO picture sleeve?? And I was also looking for a 1958 single by the Elegants "Little Star" and not even a spot for that group on the wall. Lady working there didn't even offer her assistance in locating this record as there is a huge selection of stock in the back room behind the counter. This place was much better ran in the 1990's when they actually had a great selection to offer. 30-40 bucks for a used Elvis 45, give me a friggin' break!! WAY above Goldmine pricing standards. Thankfully, my collection is nearly complete and there will never be a need to ever waste my money here on exceedingly overpriced records. I left the store dismayed and will never return! I can find records in similar condition for 75% less at a flea market, seriously!!! The only positive was the organization of the records and yet, this store still didn't have the 45 I was looking for. A generous 2/5
