- $15 for $25 worth of records, antiques, and vintagewear
On some bright and sunny days, the yard outside 212 South Margin Street comes to life with stacks of treasures. On those days, crates of vinyl records and eclectic displays of offbeat antiques grace the grass, though this is no ordinary yard sale or record-growing garden. It's one of the many times local record shop Carpe Diem expands beyonds its confines to bring a bit of shopping—and local musicians' acoustic sets—to the community.
Indeed, music defines Carpe Diem. Even when there aren't live guitarists around, visitors still find an expertly-curated collection of vinyl records inside, along with what the owners lovingly describe as antique oddities. Fine art, vintage cameras, typewriters, old toys, and photographs are all waiting inside. Yet some of those photos aren't quite as old as the others, since Carpe Diem is also home base for portrait, and event photographer Will Jordan.
