‘The Vinyl Junkie’ returns with 40,000 records up for sale

IN BETWEEN or before performances at this year's Falls Festival, stop by the Brunswick Heads Record Fair to buy some old-school vinyl records.

Whether your interest is in classic rock, blues, soul, jazz or funk, there will be something to suit your taste, and budget, with prices ranging from $10 for common records to $150 for rare ones.

Event organiser Matthew Bowden has just returned from the USA, where he secured a large amount of new stock.

Mr Bowden travels around the States for about a month every year buying new collections to sell in Australia.

"I've been collecting records since I was a kid ... I turned my hobby into a business about 10 years ago and before that I was a DJ and a collector," he said.

"With over 40,000 albums in stock, there's bound to be something there for everyone."

The Brunswick Heads Record Fair starts tomorrow and runs until January 4 at the Memorial Hall on Fingal St.

It will be open from 10am until 6pm each day, and entry is free.

For more information visit the website, thevinyljunkie.com.au or The Vinyl Junkie Facebook page.

The Record Fair has been running locally for about five years and this is the second year it's been located at Brunswick Heads.

Prior to that it ran alongside Bluesfest at Ewingsdale.
