Rainy days and Sundays!

It has been another busy week at the shop, thanks to all the RSD visitors who returned today to revisit the shop...wasnt much room last week.With the European market in Mold this Sunday 29th April we thought it might be nice to open up for a couple of hours to support the Town.This was obviously before we checked the weather forecast, not sure if the Market will tolerate the expected deluge but we will be in the shop if anyone wants to take refuge between 12 and 2pm. Thanks again to everyone who supported our Fair last week it seems it was probably our busiest to date.

Record Store Day....phew!

Were do you start on this epic day. Just like to thank all those who voted with their feet for real music! I never in my wildest dreams expected the level of support for our little shop and of course the Record Fair. Truly inspiring! Still in shock, but in a happy way. To see so many young vinyl lovers too gives us hope for the future of music. It is quite clear that people still love to own something tangible, real and this event underlines it for all to see. Thanks also to Luke, who provided some great music for those waiting to get into our shop from 9am. The organisers RSD deserve alot of credit for their efforts, there is no doubt that it is a shot in the arm for participating Independent Stores. We having definately progressed from this time last year and will do all we can to bring even more releases to Mold for RSD 2013!

The Final list for Record Fair ready to go!

The last package has been unwrapped, some very exciting would always like more but this year sees about 3 times as many in stock at our shop, all on list now confirmed. But as mentioned many times the first customers will quite rightly get the best pick. The tables are in place for the Record Fair over the road so that too should offer a great incentive to visit Mold tomorrow. Finally we have the amazing new Vinyl LP by Jack White on the shelves!

Anticipation building towards next weekend

A busy day in the shop despite a big day of sport (and no win on the horses for me!), with just a week to go till RSD and our Record Fair in Mold the anticipation is tangible. Will be watching the mail all week to see if we really can get all we asked for. It's going to be some day (positive thinking). We are hoping to be beat our queue size record of 5! For those wanting items not on our list the best option would probably be Piccadilly Records in Manchester were they get pretty much everything (one day!) but if you do set out early as the queue usually stretches round the block. But we have to be realistic and hope that what we get in will at least whet a few pallettes and if so aim to better it next year just as we have aimed to do for 2012. Will try to confirm items as we get them during the week.

It's the lull before the storm now, expecting to be pretty busy next week preparing for the day and Record fair.
