The best and/or worst thing about vinyl collections is that they are never big enough. Every wall in your apartment can be stacked floor to ceiling with incredible LPs, but it's never enough. It's never enough. Fortunately, you just got your tax refund and the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair is coming back to Smorgasburg this weekend.
There will be 50+ vendors there selling everything you can imagine, so head on down and buy as many records as you can carry. Of course, if you're like me, you'll probably have to make a few trips.
From Brooklyn Vegan:
DJs picked by the Red Bull Music Academy folks will be spinning tunes, including sets from Throne of Blood's James Friedman, Dean Bein (True Panther Records), DJ/rupture and more. Hours for the record fair are 11 AM - 6 PM and it's free entry. Smorgasburg gets insanely packed these days, so go early.
