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. We return this Sunday, January 21 at the Arbutus Fire Hall from 9 am – 3 pm where admission is always FREE! We also have food on site, serving great breakfast and lunch options.

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 had a great turnout last month at the show after our July summer break! Our great vendors returned (and some new ones as well!) and buyers filled the hall. We are back again this Sunday, September 17th! Admission is always FREE and we are at the Arbutus Fire Department Hall from 9 am – 3 pm. We also have food service for breakfast and lunch. Remember our very successful 50/50 raffle with a drawing at 12 noon. If you win, you can spend more on your favorite music items! Look at all the cool things we found last month!

We also have a lovely new vendor who debuted last month and will return this Sunday! Kara Partyka has a beautiful booth full of the artwork of many talented artists who have done portraits and interpretations of iconic musicians. She even makes her own original rock and roll themed greeting cards. Hidden among Kara’s treasures are hard to find dolls of performers such as Debbie Harry aka Blondie and the late Joey Ramone, lead singer of the New York City punk band, the Ramones. We are sure she will bringing more of her cool finds this Sunday so stop by and say hello!
