Record Store Day is quickly becoming one of my favorite holidays. Founded in 2007 as a way for independent record stores and artists to celebrate their love of music. It has grown each year and this year it was huge with over 300 Record Store Day special releases. We bought more vinyl this year than any other.
This year we started early since Music Millennium opened at 8am. When we arrived about 9am, the line to buy music snaked through the entire store. I’d never seen anything like it. People were buying hundreds of dollars of vinyl. It was incredible.
Our second stop was Jackpot which had another very long line.
Our third stop was at CD Game Exchange. I love to look through their dollar bins.
Stop four was at Exhiled.
Then we took a break to refuel.
Our last stop was to Everyday Music. We spent a long time in this huge store.
Voodoo doughnuts are a must after a long hard day of record shopping.
We took our doughnuts to Bushwackers Cider and relaxed with a pint. It was such a fun day. I always enjoy spending time with my mom-in-law and this year, my brother-in-law came too. I can’t wait for next year!
