…..News Letter #1082 – End…..

We made it, end of 2022! What a year, so many great new albums, so many great reissues. So many records! It’s always hard to whittle things down to your favorites, but we’ve managed to make some lists! Some of our very favorites of the year, lots of which are available in the shop, or will be again soon. We’d like to thank everyone who chose to buy records from us this year, we sold a lot of em, so that means a lot of you did, and we really appreciate it! We couldn’t do what we do without your support! 

I guess it also goes without saying that we’ll be having a sale on Boxing Day! 20% off in store AND online (use BOXING22 at check out). We’ll be open 11 – 5 for you to come down and spend all your Christmas money!
