I was looking for the movie 'The Truman Show' to watch with the family and found it! Staff was very friendly. Also purchased some postcards. We walked the... More

This store is a great place to go in Seaside to find vinyl records. They have a good selection that is always changing as they are buying collections whenever they can. Cool place.

Situated above a book store in Seaside, this is a great place to poke around, sifting through the stacks of records for old titles or new ones. Besides records, many other items are available for purchase as gifts or keepsakes. I was able to scoop a few old records at a Saturday morning discounted price. SWEET!

My wife and I stopped by this jewel of a hip record store this past week while we were visiting Seaside. Everything from the vinyl selection, genres and vibe was outstanding. We bought some cool items and were impressed with the knowledge and outgoingness of the store. Two thumbs up👍🏻👍🏻
