When was the last time you saw a record store opening? In fact, a good portion of the population may not have ever seen a record. I have, but I am old! The idea, however, of a piece of vinyl is very nostalgic in my mind since I no longer own any records. I threw them out years ago as not even the local Good Will wanted them.
It looks like Record Lady in Philadelphia has definitely found a gap in the market and today is the grand opening at 557 Amber St., Philadelphia, PA. If you are not sure where that is, give her a call at (267) 639-9752. The party starts at noon today and lasts until 6 p.m. Be sure to stick around for awhile to hear the free music and enjoy the beer (if you are of age).
The grand opening is in conjunction with the Trenton Ave Arts Fest. The Record Lady is billed as an after party of the festival which includes artists, musicians, and eateries. The festival typically attracts more than 10,000 people in its East Kensington location and proceeds go to neighborhood revitalization efforts. Trenton Ave Arts Fest is located on the cobblestones of Trenton Avenue.
Record Lady started as an online site in March 2010. The Philadelphia location is the first brick and mortar store for Record Lady and is a family-owned endeavor. The store includes not only vinyl records but other vintage items such as posters, cd’s and other treasures. Record Lady, aka Cindy Hunt, previously owned another brick and mortar record store in Coatsville.
