Signs that you are a vinyl addict...

At Vinyl Café we welcome all vinyl addicts. Whether you are new to vinyl culture or have been for years, we have what you need and when you need it. If you aren’t quite sure if the vinyl bug has bitten, these are some great signs that you are well on your way!

  • Music sounds best to you when a little surface noise precedes it. In fact, this is the moment you feel yourself relax and prepare to take in the music.
  • You have a shelf or area in your home that is dedicated to your vinyl collection.
  • You make yourself immediately available for garage sales and flea markets just in case you find some good record deals.
  • When you find a collection of records for sale you have to browse through each and every record on offer because there could be something that you love right there.
  • Seeing records lying out of their protective jackets makes you cringe.
  • You spend a great deal of time hoping that your favourite bands will release something on vinyl.
  • There always seems to be a record that you just cannot find, no matter where you look and it is somewhat of a driving force behind your searches.
If you are developing a strong opinion of vinyl vs digital music then chances are that your transformation is complete. If you love the sound of the needle touching the vinyl and simply cannot get enough, then we want to get to know you better at Vinyl Café. Sign up for an account, browse through our record listings and simply enjoy digging around for something that tickles your fancy. We could always have something that you are looking for stored at our premises so don’t be shy to ask if we have something – we are available via email and telephone!
