Two sisters brought the joy of flipping through vinyl to our hometown, located in the Factory at Franklin in Franklin, TN. All of our used vinyl is cleaned on a professional VPI cleaning machine, play-graded, and then packaged in a resealable sleeve to protect the sleeve and the wax. Fresh used arrivals go out daily and New vinyl comes in once or twice a week. We also take care of any special order requests as well.
