Come celebrate Father’s Day with us – this Sunday, June 17!

This Sunday, June 17, come celebrate Father’s Day with us at the Arbutus Fire Hall from 9 am – 3 pm. Admission is always FREE! We have food on site, serving great breakfast and lunch options. Time to show your dad some music love with some great gifts!

We also welcome relatively new vendors, Michael and Michelle! They had a wonderful selection of Beatles memorabilia at their table last month and they like to bring different things for each show. Michael was a DJ at WRNR in Annapolis for 10 years before it was taken over by a big corporation. He bought his first record when he was seven years old and also has a huge CD collection. Come by their table and say hello. You never know what music treasure they might bring with them!

Another great find at the show was a replica of the cover of THE WALL album by Pink Floyd (see below). Our own resident dad, Frank Ruehl, found that gem and he thinks it was handmade  –  really a fantastic job!

First, mark your calendars for a special 4th Sunday show this month, May 27 at the Arbutus Fire Hall! It’s 9am – 3pm and always FREE! The gals in the kitchen will be looking up some great food for breakfast and lunch!

Now for the REALLY BIG NEWS! Finally people are discovering what we knew all along. Vinyl never went away and it is coming back strong! You might have seen Janet’s post on Facebook – she was just too excited to keep a secret for too long. Arbutus Record Show is featured in the May issue of Baltimore Magazine all about the Baltimore music scene. First the cover! “Vinyl Mania: The Record Plays On” refers to our article called “For the Record,” written by John Lewis with photography by Matt Roth. It runs on pages 108-111 and concludes on page 159. We thank John and Matt for such a great article!

We are posting each page of the article so you can read it here but you still have time to run out and get a souvenir copy of your own. We are so proud and honored to be recognized in Baltimore Magazine! 

Vendor Chris Armbruster is featured as well as our beloved Miss Freddie and dealers Catherine Bailey and Jack Skutnick. Joe Vaccarino, the expert on Baltimore music, gets a shout out too. Even some of our great customers are interviewed. Patty Reuhl has a mention selling her “snappy T-shirts.”

Our own Frank Reuhl has his quote featured and we think he sums it up pretty well:

“It’s all about the hunt,
discovering the music, and
meeting good people.”
