Spring is just around the corner and so is our March show! Come by Sunday, March 20 at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Hall from 9 am – 3 pm. Admission is FREE and parking is FREE! Remember to bring your own food and drink and don’t forget the green. St. Patty’s Day comes before the show but there is still plenty of “gold-en” music to uncover. We will have lots of great vendors and music treasures.

It was a great show in February! You may have noticed a young man taking photos and filming. His name is Anderson Branch. A young Navy man, he made the Arbutus Record show the subject an an assignment for his Photojournalism class at the Defensive Information School, Ft. Meade. You can see his wonderful little film by clicking here! Thank you Anderson!

More to come…

We had a great show before Christmas! It was so great to see Butch and Linda at the show again. They always manage to hunt up some great finds. This time it was some great signage from back in the day – the Buddy Deane show on the  WITH radio station and a big sign for Buddy Deane’s Bandstand on WJZ-TV, 3-5 pm Monday -Friday! They also had a bumpersticker for WJZ and a whole bunch of super groovy radios called the Toot-a-Loop Radio by Panasonic, made in Japan in the early 1970s. It was designed to wrap around your wrist  – all great finds!

It’s also not too early to mark your calendars for the NOVEMBER 21 and DECEMBER 19 shows!

There were some fun goings-on at our September show! First we had a new vendor, designer Stephanie Diederich, trying out her record-themed wares, including bags and Ts. Janet was wearing one of her cool, limited edition T-shirts! We wish Stephanie great success!

We gave Mr. Jack a birthday salute! He turned 91 years young in September! We think it’s the music and the fact that he is still a vendor at our show that keeps him young and full of life 🙂

And even Mighty Mouse made an appearance!

Our fearless leaders, Janet and Frank!

Spring is finally here! Deals will be blooming at our next show, Sunday, April 18, at the Arbutus Fire Hall from 9 am – 3 pm. Admission is FREE and parking is FREE! This is our normal third weekend of the month since the spring holidays were early this year. We still have to wear our masks in compliance with the state law and safety for everyone. Please continue to MASK UP,  socially distance, and bring your own food and drink. 

Last month’s show was AMAZING with such a great crowd all day long. It was also a wonderful opportunity to get some great photos as well of lots of the great finds at the show!
Yes that fuzzy creature holds 45s!

We had the opportunity to meet Lou Vlangas, who partners with our wonderful announcer, Derek Shaw at the Keystone Record Collectors show, the Pennsylvania Music Expo, every month (usually the weekend before the Arbutus show). Lou is the show coordinator, announcer and does the table reservations. At our show in March he showed up with a gem! The first 45 record every pressed, recorded by Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup – and it’s even color vinyl!

Lou, top left and his prize 45 record. A steal at $400!
