Bring your “Presidents” to our Sunday, February 18th show and get some great music deals!

Join us this Sunday, February 18 at the Arbutus Fire Hall from 9 am – 3 pm. Admission is FREE! We also have great food on site, serving great breakfast and lunch! Fabulous deals and a wonderful variety of music-related items to be found!

We had a great turnout at our first show of 2018 in January! Janet was seen sporting the new Arbutus Record Show T-shirt (which you can purchase at the show) and her groovy record earrings. Janet and Frank also showed us that they are our favorite sweethearts, doing a little dancing to some tunes provided by our announcer extraordinaire, Derek Shaw.

February means love, celebrating our past presidents and it is also Black History Month. We found some wonderful music that celebrates the great contributions of African Americans to American music history – jazz, soul, blues and pop!  Represented are the great ladies of song, Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horn and Billie Holiday; The Story of Jazz as written and narrated by celebrated author, Langston Hughes; albums by Sam Cooke, Etta James, and jazz greats Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie; 60s supergroup Sly and The Family Stone; and pop all-stars like Prince and the Jacksons on picture discs! Even a fun album by the “greatest” – boxer Cassisus Clay –  soon to be known as Muhammad Ali! So come on down and get your groove on this Sunday! See you there!

Happy New Year, music lovers! Join us Sunday, January 21 for our first show of 2018!

Happy New Year! We hope you had a great holiday season! December show was a great success as people found treasures and gifts for their favorite music lovers.

Last year we had a chance to talk to two of our great vendors who work together as a team  – Bob (left) and Evan (right). They joined forces about two years ago when Evan found a treasure trove of albums – almost 11,000 records! – from one collector and they decided to purchase the whole lot. We discovered that Evan is a contemporary jazz lover (like Paul Hardcastle and Pat Metheny) and Bob is a HUGE Beatles fan. As they said, you never know what you are going to find [at the Arbutus Record Show] or who you are going to meet. These two are great guys – always cheerful and friendly, and they come to the show with wonderful music finds! So stop by their booth this Sunday and say “hi” while looking through their selection of albums and other goodies.

We thank our wonderful vendors, like Bob and Evan, and our patrons. Looks like it’s going to be another great year in 2018! See you this Sunday!

We would like to send condolences and prayers the family of Marty Stuber. We lost our dear friend Marty this past Thursday, December 14. She will be missed by all her friends, especially those who chatted with her and hung out at Jack’s tables at both the Lancaster Record Show as well as at the Arbutus Record & CD Show. Marty was our dealer Jack Supplee’s sweetheart.

It was a great show last month as we celebrated the very special 25th anniversary of one of our beloved vendors, Jack Supplee. Along with some other longtime vendors, Janet brought out all the stops with cake and libations to share with everyone. We feared Jack would retire but he is not going anywhere. Though he will have less tables, we are delighted that he will continue to participate in the Arbutus Record Show!

After a late winter blast, we are back this Sunday, March 19 to the Arbutus Fire Hall from 9 am – 3 pm. Admission is always FREE! We also have food on site, serving great breakfast and lunch options. Come by and say hello to Jack and all the other great people at the show!
