Amazing store ! Gorgeous selection of cards , glassware and beautiful decor. Super cute record shop in the back and FANTATIC customer service from the manager Bjorn (hope that's spelled correctly) I really felt good walking into this beauty.The vibe is good !!! Ps I obviously came out with a fantastic cat mug for my sister ..tee hee ♥ 🐈
I'm not sure where people are getting the idea that the staff is unhelpful. I found exactly the opposite. They're more than happy to assist and recommend.The store is small but they have a good selection of used and new vinyl. The pricing is a little more expensive than other places for used records but the quality is consistently good. I've been burned at other places with records that were warped or scratched so I will pay a little more for a good product.The overall atmosphere of the store is very chill. Having cool conversations with other crate digging customers is both fun and informative.I highly recommend this store for quality used/vintage vinyl.
Ultimately this place is just too expensive.Typically these records are priced the same as what they'd be on Discogs PLUS shipping to Canada, so you might as well just order online. There are zero surprises/deals to be had here, and therefore, it's just not too enjoyable an experience.For example, an EU 1982 copy of Nebraska by Bruce Springsteen is $45. A 2013 copy of Geogaddi by Boards of Canada is $50. Sandinista by the Clash is $65. I've seen Sandinista at several stores recently (in absolutely fine shape) never for over $50 bucks.An OG Stereo copy of Bobby Hutcherson's "Stick Up" is $250, but it "looks rough, plays okay" and the cover is rather beat up. $250 for a VG+ copy of that would be acceptable, but that's way too high, even for such a rare record.But what I will say about this store is that it serves a purpose for serious collectors who are willing to pay a premium for a rare record in great shape. You won't find any beaten up/scratched records here (unless noted, and if so, it will be a super valuable record). And if you strictly want to avoid buying online and aren't afraid to spend more than you need to for the sake of convenience, this place will give you what you need.No disrespect to the owner or whoever prices these records, this is just my opinion. This a nice store and it's fun to look through the bins but I personally can't justify paying these prices.
The staff here is very friendly and was able to help me find the Weezer Blue Album for my daughter after the staff at sunrise records tried to pass the Teal album off as blue. My daughter is happy, which makes me happy and would definitely recommend if you're looking for a hard to find album.
Nice selection. Prices kinda high 100 dollars for King Crimson's first. Can't check condition of the record. The cashier opens the bag and takes the record out and shows you the condition themselves.
