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.

We want to give a special shoutout to a great friend of the show and longtime vendor. Al Ercolani Jr had come back to the show after a long absence. But that kind heart of his needed some support and in October he had triple bypass surgery. He posts on his FB page that he is doing well. We wish Al a speedy recovery and hope to see him soon!

 

Come visit us Memorial Weekend for a special 4th Sunday show on May 28!

The show featured in The Washington Post and the return of beloved vendor

This month we have another special fourth Sunday show over Memorial Weekend on May 28th. Take a break from your holiday festivities – and remembrance of our brave fighting men and women – and join 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. Come by and search for some special music items.

We have two pieces of great news! John Kelly wrote a great feature this week in The Washington Post, “At this Maryland vinyl fest, the wax will never wane” and you can view it here or on our Facebook page. It features two of our vendors Greg Greenstein and Tim Harris (he will be there!) Here are a couple of screen shots.

Our second piece of news…after a long absence, a very much missed vendor and all around nice guy will be returning to the show. We were so delighted to see him at last month’s show and thrilled that he will be here this Sunday. Stop by and visit Al Ercolani at his booth to welcome him back.

Ho! Ho! Ho! Join us for the last show of 2016 and come by this Sunday, December 18 and shop for those last minute gifts!

In honor of a great music legend, David Bowie, who we lost too soon this past year, among so many, we thought this would be fitting for the season. Two great music legends on opposite sides of the music spectrum performed this memorable duet in 1977. Bing Crosby & David Bowie – Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy. 

Hard to believe another holiday season is upon us! Shake the cold and join us this Sunday, December 20 for our last show of 2016!  This is the final chance to get that special gift for your favorite music-lover – or even a special something for yourself.  You can find great bargains and treasures from 9 am to 3 pm. Admission is always free and breakfast and lunch are available for purchase.

Thank you and blessings from our family to all of our vendors and buyers this holiday season. We look forward to seeing you in the new year!

We scoped out some pretty cool Christmas-themed music items last month and we are sure there will be tons more this Sunday! Here is just a sampling:

It’s getting closer to the holiday season so there are only two more months to find those special gifts of music for friends, family – and perhaps even a little something for yourself! Join us this Sunday, November 15, 9 am-3 pm at the Arbutus Fire Hall. Our vendors are overflowing with special finds and remember, it’s always free! 

We also are excited to announce our schedule for 2016! So mark your calendars for next year!
arbutus 2016 flyer.jpgAt last month’s show, we had a special attendee! Frank Merrill joined us after being on a road trip for 30 days. Like our great announcer, Derek Shaw, he is also a huge roller coaster fan but there is something even more important about Frank. He not only has a record collection of over 400 thousand records but he is the largest collector of radio station surveys in the world. What a honor to have him visit the show!
