we really love you.  a lot.

but, we just stopped by today and bought a bunch of records.


and we would have bought more.


you had a vinyl listening station.

like this.  at bop street records in seattle.

like this. at bop street records in seattle.

it doesn’t look too hard.  a knock-off recliner from goodwill.  a little corner.  an old record player.

it’s these little touches that make us want to go and have a local record store experience instead of just bidding on ebay.  or downloading tracks off itunes.

We found a new spot to buy vinyl — in New Market of all places! Go 1 mile (or a little less) from town north on Rt.11. Look to your right for a somewhat grubby place advertising a little bit of everything including Civil War memorabilia, and “The Road Kill Grill”. Had a big stand of records and plenty of (antique!) seating.

I’m sure you already know this but they’ll order any vinyl for you no shipping charge.
