In beautiful downtown Mountain View, on Castro Street, sits a book store called Book Buyers. We have all been in this fantastic recycled/used book store, but have you found the record section?
My friend and I love to peruse the bounty of books in this massive bookstore. One day I decided to try a different section, and to my surprise I found an entire wall dedicated to the long lost LP. Not many stores sell records anymore, and I was surprised to find them here. They have boxes and boxes of records for sale. You can spend an afternoon searching through these timeless classics to find the piece that is missing from your collection.
If you have a large collection already and find that you need to thin out, Book Buyers also buys records. You can trade in your used records for ‘new’ ones or even books. I recommend contacting the store for their ‘buying’ hours. Book Buyers is located at 317 Castro Street and their phone number is 650-968-7323.
I have been to this shop many times over the years and never knew about the records. Next time you are in Book Buyers, take a few steps off your normal path. You will never know what hidden surprise you will find around the corner.
