I buy what some friends & family would deem to be an exorbitant amount of records from a wide array of shops across this country... this one is my favorite. Derek is such a good/trustable dude, and has helped me find some of my white whales. Highly recommend that you check it out.

Awesome selection of Vinyl. Tons of new Vinyl. I have not seen a genre of music that is not there. Very fairly priced as well. The owner, Derek, is super knowledgeable, and helps you find what you want, but also helping introduce you to new genres one may not have explored before.
