Record Fair opener 2012

With two dates still remaining for 2011, next years events are now taking shape. We are very pleased to announce that we will 'kick-off' 2012 at the Civic Centre Connah's Quay on Saturday March 10th. Really great room with easy access for dealers and visitors, free car-parking nearby and a train station just up the road. We expect a rush to book stalls and you should see over 30 tables on the day. Other venues now confirmed are in Mold and Denbigh, check up and coming Fair dates on our website.

Building up momentum

With the end of September in site, the first 6 month's of 2011 (April-September) have been our best to date since opening Feb.2009. From those cold February days with little knowledge of what lay ahead (but plenty of optimism),time seems to have passed in a blink of an eye. I would like to thank everyone for their support, truly inspiring. Two and a half years in, it still feels like the start - there is so much more to do. Some things that seemed like a great idea proved not to be and others you think will never work do! But this is a marathon (hopefully) and not a sprint and the fun is in feeling your way as you go. Thanks again, hope to see you soon.

The Pavilion signs off

A great day at the Pavilion Leisure Centre for last Saturday's Record Fair, high attendance with lots on offer from some of the UK's top record dealers. But it was a bitter sweet moment as just the night before the Fair, we were told that the the Centres refurbishment which includes a new 10 tin bowling alley, will mean that the Castle Suite will be no more! This of course means looking for another venue. Whether this is possible to find one in Flint remains to be seen, but visitors were genuinely sad to hear the news and we will do all we can....Flint has been very kind to us over the last six years. Keep you informed as and when.

We now have instore, the incredible new release by CRANIUM PIE - Mechanisms1 GatefoldLP, coloured vinyl of course. Sold out at source but we currently have a limited amount at our shop. Also two MUGSTAR LP's, having seen them first hand on Sept. 6th supporting THe WOODEN SHJIPS in Liverpool I can highly recommend these albums if you like your Pysch/Kraut or Space rock. The band completely blew me away with a blistering live performance. You can check out Album tracks on various sites including Youtube. We also stock THE WOODEN SHJIPS.

Flint Record Fair - Saturday 10th September

A full house of top dealers for this weekends Record Fair at the Pavilion Leisure Centre (35 tables). This we think will be our biggest Fair to date in 2011. For those Hi-Fi enthusiasts there will also be a Hi-Fi stall. The Fair opens at 10am and closes at 4pm. Please note Mold Record Shop will be closed for the day. Hope to see you in Flint!

360 degree tour of our shop

If you go to the Shop page you will see a link that takes you on a tour of our shop (you will need the latest version of 'Flash' to run this smoothly). The camera pans round but you can use your mouse to view up/down or wherever you want. Obviously the shop changes on a daily basis with new stock and internal re-shuffles but hope it gives you a little flavour of the UK's smallest Independent Record Store?
