to see if we are in. Closed Monday thru Wednesday, but I do open when there working. CUSTOM visits CAN be arranged AT A TIME CONVENIENT FOR YOU!! Call or text Jim at the number above. He lives 5 minutes from the shop.
LPs that are worn but still playable are $1. Open/sealed or bagged SINGLE LP's are $3/$5; DOUBLES $5/$10
The AC has been recharged so you can get out of the heat and shop in comfort. We occupy all of Building A in the AMELIA MARKET PLACE complex. The building faces Ohio Pike (SR 125), but the entrance is on Mt. Holly road. Parking is free with no admission fee. We're INSIDE away from the elements.
When weather permits, some items are set outside for display. We also have florescent OPEN signs in the windows that are turned on while the shop is open.
To see if the shop open while driving by, look for the AMERICAN flags on or in front of the building. When you see Old Glory flying, the time is right for buying!!!!
All new arrival LPs are alphabetized by artist last name and stored in crates on the floor as you enter the room until they are filed in the appropriate racks.
My stock includes a lot of different artists and titles to fill in your collections. I'm not a dealer so you probably won't find current releases or high-priced 180 gram vinyl here. I get items now wherever I can, although most came from my private collection that I was able to rescue as part of my divorce. (boo hoo).
Most of the records and other items are in excellent condition. I am a small operation may have only one or two albums for some of the artists, so as they say, or used to say "The Early Bird Gets the Worm." Once they are sold they are gone (duh!) and may not be restocked unless I get lucky again.
Cash is king here; but if plastic is your thing, only come when I am at the shop. Credit/debit/chip cards are accepted. We have to add small surcharge to your total to cover their fee. You may want to call/text ahead if you plan on using plastic to make sure I am there. No one else can run a card.
For your phone or GPS, our address is 2000 East Ohio Pike in Amelia (SR 125). See the pictures. Stay cool in summer and warm in winter.
It ain't the medium, it's the message. The music is most important. In this, the digital age, downloading has become the preferred means of obtaining music. You can transfer any of the items I sell to your computer, or now to the "cloud". The item then becomes your backup should your drive become corrupt or your computer crashes.
Come check us out. We may be a little shop, but collectively you will find items in all types of media. Vinyl is located in the room to your left at the end of the common area. The common area is where you will find equipment to play, record or process every type of media we sell.
CDs and DVDs are in the first room to your right as you come in the door. VHS tapes are in various locations.
More records are being added each week. They are put in the "New Additions" section as you come in the record room, sorted by the artist's last name, but not segregated by genres. You will find Abba in front of Chet Atkins in front of Bloodrock and so on.
Come on out and spend some time on my dime.
Prices are pretty much standard UNLESS marked otherwise.
45s start at 50 cents for most of the ones w/o sleeves, $1 and up if they have generic sleeves, more for picture and label appropriate sleeves. 78s start at $1.
LPs in poly sleeves are higher priced "collectible" albums that start at $5 for a single record and $10 for a double record.
Collectibles are usually 1st pressings; without bar codes; rare, out-of-print, imports; limited or special pressings; colored vinyl or special shapes or promos. Those that are not sealed are housed in polyvinyl sleeves. Loose 45's $1, in generic sleeves $2 and picture sleeves $5 or more.
8 track tapes are $2. I check them all to see if the pads are there and that the capstans roll. They are not returnable.
Cassettes are in the record room; most open ones are $1 and sealed ones $3. Don't count cassettes out and I have several good decks for sale. The common area is full of audio/video equipment. All rooms are stuffed to the gills
Many items are sealed or near mint. LPs are sorted alphabetically by artist and separated into musical categories. I keep higher-priced collectible LPs in poly bags, in with the other albums.
I also have about 2,000 CDs that are divided by category, but not sorted by the artist's name. They are in the CD/DVD room to your right as you come through the door. Unless marked otherwise, CDs are $3 each (2 for $$) for single discs, $5 for doubles. Email, call or text me if you are looking for a specific item.
There are about a thousand 45s and 78s, with or without paper sleeves in the record room. Those not in sleeves START at $1; in generic sleeves $2 and picture sleeves a little higher. Prices on them are not marked, so ask before you decide to buy. I have about 200 45s from the Beatles, the Stones, the Monkeys and other artists. I probably have 200 78 RPM records as well.
Other higher priced VHS/DVDs are in the record room. DVDs start at $5.
Generally, VHS concert tapes start at $3: Collectible VHS tapes are $2 for most and $3 for others.
Combination CD-DVDs start at $5.
Boxed sets start at $5. Prices on them are not marked, so ask before you decide to buy.
You will find CDs, 45s, 78s, 8 tracks and cassettes, Movies, TV shows, Musicals and Concerts through the ages from artists like AC/DC through Frank Zappa (no vinyl left); Glenn Miller through Snoop Dog and the Three Tenors.
I also have a selection of RCA CEDs and Laser discs.
All records $3 and above should be clean and playable with NO skips, although some older, more hard to find albums MAY have surface blemishes, minor audible scratches or slightly damaged covers.
I also have some at $2 or less that are not in great condition or that may be in sleeves with no covers or in covers with no sleeves. They should sound fine on many record players and turntables and not cause damage to your stylus (needle).
If there is a QUESTION as to quality, ask to have the item PLAYED to hear for yourself.
