A honed CD collection reveals facets of its owner's personality, speaks to the importance of culture, and, if it takes up too much space, can be shaped into a living-room-furniture set. Sit amid great tunes with this Groupon.
$10 for $20 Worth of Used CDs, Used DVDs, and Vintage Records
A rotating selection of expertly culled and cared for used CDs and DVDs costs a flat $5 per disc, with box sets priced as marked.
After passing through double doors located at the bottom quarter of a massive storefront record, patrons emerge into Record Archive's quirky shop whose red and yellow walls disappear behind shelves of used CDs, DVDs, vinyl, and cassettes. A 35-year veteran of the Rochester music scene, the shop judiciously buys and sells tunes and movies in most formats. In the shade of bikes dangling decoratively from the ceiling, clients can special order hard-to-find works to complete collections or destroy the traces of their brief solo jazz career. Despite the music specialty advertised by the store’s name and its eclectic calendar of in-house performances, Record Archive also takes a stance against mass-production with caches of vintage clothing, unique furniture, quirky toys, and incense.
