My first visit was great and I walked out with 3 albums at a fair price.Like many used record stores this place is packed with vinyl. Most of it is organized but there are random boxes too so plan to dig a bit…it’s half the fun!They offer a turntable to test records and the owner isn’t pushy and let’s you take your time.Be aware, the building is behind another on the street so walk around the cafe and head out back.

Very cool place! The two workers I've seen in there (I think the owners) are very friendly and nice. The store itself is cozy but has a lot of cool stuff! I always buy a cassette tape when i come here!
Small place that had an eclectic mix of music. Lots of vinyl. Not a ton of cd's but definitely some gems in what I browsed through. Reviews talked about how nice the owners are. The guy working there when I visited didn't speak. OK if you are a local, but not worth a long drive to visit (which is what I did).
Decent shop, I'd like to think the owners out some time and love into it. They understandably didn't sell record needles, but the employee I talked to wasn't able to recommend any music based on playing a few songs.Lots of $1-8 records to browse though.
Expensive, but GREAT place to browse forEVER looking for records!-I had no idea this place was here - and it's easy to miss because it's an old house sitting BEHIND the stores on the main street here. But - the bright colors help you find it (see my pic). I walked in and was glad to see a place that still sells the good stuff! You can spend forever here just flipping through the discs. It's well-organized, but you get the feeling that you're missing some stuff because there are hidden boxes of records underneath as well as some on inaccessible bookshelfves behind racks. The second floor has a lot of discs too - and I found some good stuff there. Not a lot of the good albums though - I had a hard time finding legit old albums from the Stones or Aerosmith. Mainly you'll find greatest hits or records that aren't actual albums, etc. BUT, I did find some that I wanted and spent the $ to get them. Good store and a cool dog chilling out on the couch downstairs that you can pet! Good news - I saw a dog today!
