This place is incredible. Just piles of old records, VHS tapes, various electronics, clothing and nic-nacs of all kinds. Only 4 stars because I hit my head pretty hard coming out of the basement. I WILL BE BACK. AND I WILL WATCH MY HEAD.

This a record store like no other. I have seen a lot of nice record sellers in the Tr-State area over the years but this establishment is truly one of a kind. Mind that this is hardly a proper place to visit for a casual record buyer or someone looking for a quick purchase of a specific record. This place is for a serious vinyl digger in you! If you spend a couple of hours digging through the records in this unsorted and raw mess, afterwards, it feels as if you worked in a mine: you are exhausted, your hands are black dirty, you are breathing hard. But, from my own personal experience, there was not a single time when an hour or two spent in this store came unrewarded. The thrill of searching for records in this store is that you are virtually digging up real golden vinyl nuggets amid the tons of waste vinyl rock! Buying a record for me is less than half the thrill I get when I come to this store. The unexpected joy of coming across some precious item (marketwise or in personal system of reference) is what makes this place truly stand out. This is real vinyl junkie's emotion speaking. Trust me, this not a hype. Come to this place often. Time allowing, I come here at least a couple of times a week. Last but not least. I am usually on the search for exquisite records costing no more than... $1. When I pay $2 for a record here, it really feels like a freebie.

Amazing record collections ! But no order whatsoever so be ready to browse through pounds of dust and vinyls. You can haggle prices ;)

There are so many forgotten treasures here it's not even funny. Apparently the entire basement is full of unsorted records as well... like you literally have to dig through mountainous stacks of wax, old school. Dive in and you're sure to find something!
