The air is getting crisp and cool and that means fall, football, and Halloween! Mark your calendars for October 16 and come see us at our next show at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department Hall. The hours are 9 am – 3 pm. There is NEVER an admission fee and plenty of FREE parking! Search for some fun, Halloween-themed music or start your holiday shopping early.
Our September show was a great success and there were so many cool finds! Now who are these lovely ladies sporting the official Arbutus Record Show T-shirt?
Another great crowd searching for music treasures in September.
There was a great variety of great music and music items. Some rare finds too!
Soon Halloween will be upon us and so will our next show coming up on October 17 at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department Hall from 9 am – 3 pm. NO admission and plenty of FREE parking! We have our wonderful vendors with some scary, great music treats. Masks are suggested.
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 🙂
We are keeping in touch with our host, the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department, and at this point, we are having our November show! Come visit us from 9 am – 3 pm. NO admission and plenty of FREE parking! Please continue to adhere to COVID safety precautions and wear your mask at all times (which means covering the mouth AND nose) and socially-distance. This is particularly important at this time.
Please put DECEMBER 20 on your calendar as we hope to finish the year with our last show before Christmas!
After celebrating Mr. Jack‘s 90th birthday in September, we had quite a scare with him at last month’s show. This post from our “sister” show Pennsylvania Music Expo sums up the day and how the Arbutus Record Show family showed what a wonderful village we are.
“Long time Pennsylvania Music Expo vendor and good friend, Jack Supplee, wasn’t feeling well. He was set up next to Lou Vlangas. Lou turned to see Jack on the floor (relax he’s okay.) A number of us rushed to his side, got the paramedics, and off to the hospital he went. Lou and Sarah Malloy kept his tables going for him through the day. To our surprise, Jack was discharged and returned late afternoon. At 90 years old, we have to consider, maybe he really is Superman. The best part is the end of the day. When it was time to load out, we told Jack we would help him. In one of the best acts of kindness we’ve ever seen, lined up at his table to help him load was: Billy Martin with his cart, Lou Vlangas with his cart, Derek Shaw with his cart, Will Williams with his cart and John Hertzog with his cart. It was an act of kindness that brought tears to Jack’s eyes as well as others. Jack words, while in tears, were ‘It’s wonderful to have such good friends.’….IT WAS PRICLESS. As they say, it takes a village.”
Seems like fall has come early and we are back with our record show on Sunday, September 20! Join us at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department Hall from 9am – 3 pm.NO admission and plenty of FREE parking!
Our our great vendors are returning and we are following COVID safety precautions. Please wear your mask at all times, remember to socially-distance. The tables will continued to be spaced out in the hall as well. July and August have worked successfully and we look forward to continuing that success through the end of the year – and beyond!
There is still no food available yet at the hall, so please remember to bring your own food and drinks. Last month’s show was a great success and there were many wonderful finds and a great variety of items. We found the muppet, Animal, on his drums, 8-tracks (!), lots of Beatles (including a Yellow Submarine lunchbox), a Jerry Garcia doll, and even some cool guitars! Join us for more fabulous finds this month!
