Local Love - Hymie's Vintage Records
I'm back with another local shop you need to check out!
I found Hymie's Vintage Records completely by accident. When I had my 20's themed birthday party, I knew I wanted to play jazz and big band records instead of something from the computer. So I googled record stores in Minneapolis and Hymie's was one the only ones and came highly recommended. I wandered into the store and tried to find things by myself but was having a hard time. Not only did the lady working there show me where to go, she also told me about what was popular back then and helped me pick out a couple of records. They even have a listening station where you can sit and listen to the record before you buy it. This really helped when I was listening to the 20's records. I put back some of the records I had picked out because they weren't the sound I was looking for.
I've gone back a couple of times to get records for my new collection. I've found some fun 50's hits records, Abbey Road, Beach Boys greatest hits and a couple of more. Such a fun store to explore and I can't wait to go back and look more. PS ignore my terrible iPhone photos. I was the creeper in the back of the store taking these... :)
**I didn't receive anything for this review, just wanted to share the love!**
