LIMITED TO ONE RECORD SHOP opens it's doors, July 29th 10am

 
The east village's newest record shop will open it's doors on Saturday July 29th at 10am
221 East 10th Street (between 1st ave and 2nd ave)
 
Limited to One will focus on rare, limited and out of press contemporary music.
 
during the day, we'll have some performances - 
 
12pm - Adam Rubenstein (Split Lip, Chamberlain)
1pm - Jeff Caudill (Gameface) 
 
We'll be selling a limited edition lathe from Jeff.  limited to 25 copies.
 
We'll also be having raffles all day, which will include rare 45's and LP's.
 
Also for sale, we'll have "Limited to One" lathes (from Little Elephant)
from such artists as Pinegrove, 
The World is a Beautiful Place, Tim Kasher, Smith Street Band, Jeff Rosenstock, 
Modern Baseball, Foxing, Sorority Noise and a ton more.  We'll only have 1 copy
of each of these and once they're gone, that's it.
 
we'll have a few more things for sale, plus a store filled with new inventory.
check out our instagram for some of the items we'll be selling.
 
 
I also feel like it should be said, that we did our best to price reasonably.
 
If you're in NYC< please come and check us out.
 
thanks.  kristian /tpg

Why is it inherently bad that a store focus on rare stuff? Only "limited to one" stuff is the Little Elephant lathes they will cut forever anyway. I haven't seen prices yet, but they will at least have to be competitive? Don't sharpen your pitchforks yet, Christ.

listen, I am going to say this once .

 

we are pricing everything in the store at the lowest possible discogs pricing

and anyone who knows me, knows that this isn't about making an extra ten bucks

or something, off of some new hard to find LP.

 

I have traveled to EU and Asia getting a lot of these records and have been (and still)

busting my ass and putting myself in debt to make this a reality.

 

if you don't like the idea, don't come.  simple as that.

 

I know a lot of people who'd like the chance to see  and check out the condition of an LP before buying it.

and I know a lot of people would like a shop that focuses on contemporary music and not a lot 

of dollar bins and stuff you can buy online.

 

once again, if you dont have something nice to say.  ..

So let me get this straight: you have an issue with the idea of grabbing all of the wall records in NYC record shops and placing them under one roof at fair prices? Are you so naive to think that if I walk into a local store with my copy of Washed Out's Life of Leisure, their first record on purple, trade it in, that the store is going to sell it at like $15? They are going to look it up in Discogs and price it accordingly. Maybe you would buy it, maybe you wouldn't - but you wouldn't think twice about the store selling it. But now because a store is limiting its stock to just records like that one you take offense? Please, go out and be productive today.

I want that TWIABP lathe....BUT I have a ticket to the DC record crawl the Saturday before.

 

I would assume I would have to be "camped out" the night before to even get a "chance" to get this...

 

Decisions...:P

I sincerely doubt anyone will be camped out.. 

But let me know via insta if you plan on swinging by early.

People are dicks. Congrats on opening the store. Owning your own business is a lot of hard work and hopefully you have a lot of success.

thanks dude.  I appreciate.  I've had a lot of help from other people on the board and a few cool label 

people too.  (we've had some labels send us some cool Out Of Print stuff, tests, etc..)

 

I just think it's funny that people are commenting about the pricing without seeing one LP priced.

People who have never owned a small business or have put lots of money and hard work into a labor of love will always try and knock you down. Just ignore them and do what you gotta do. I wish you all the success in the world and I look forward to stopping by (probably on the first Monday). I'll be sure to say hi!
