Rathdowne Records Garage Sale

Boost your record collection for little more than spare change.

Every music lover has dreamed of owning their own record store. What hasn't factored into everyone's fantasies, however, is what happens when that passion for vinyl leaves you with crates and crates of albums, and then crates and crates more. Yes, there are only so many sleeves that even the biggest shop run by the biggest music buff can handle — meaning that, often there's some additional stock needing a new home.

In Rathdowne Records' case, it's coping in the best possible way. On Sunday, March 17 from 10am–3pm, the store is holding a huge garage sale to sell off stacks of albums, including newly imported wares. The best part? Records start from $2, with 5000 up for grabs for that price. You can also rifle through a thousand dance releases and take your pick for $10 (or nab 3 for $20), with discounts of between 10–50 percent on shop stock also on offer.

Yes, you can boost your vinyl collection for little more than spare change, with thousands and thousands for sale  — including  house, techno, hip hop, RnB, Japanese pop, anime soundtracks and jazz.

While you'll find the store on Northcote's High Street, head into the sale via the garage in the Regal Ballroom carpark.
