Took a little trip down to south cakalacky and came back with a haulllll. Over 1500 records and some 45s. Gentleman said there were some promos (records and promotional material) in here as well as multiple signed records. 😱 The records seen here are a highlight from one of the boxes. My back hurts but man I appreciate that someone suggested that this gentleman get in contact with me. 🙌

This 2015 release from has been an album that I’ve listened to a lot this past month. It’s got the perfect amount of shoegazing-dreamscape, classic emo, and pop. Fav song “like slow disappearing.”
Def worth a listen if you have never heard the album.

Thanks so much for dropping by and spreading the word about our little shop!

Posted • Ahhh I found one of the top of my list ISO albums today 🎉

Fell in love with Contra by Vampire Weekend on accident. It was back in 2012 and I was on a trip to Colorado and there was zero radio & was pre-streaming services being popular. I stopped in a random music store in a small town & grabbed this CD on a whim. After listening to it for a week straight, it was pure nostalgia.

I headed in to explore a “new to me” record store Hardy boys Records and Comics] in Mint Hill, right outside of Charlotte. It is literally a hidden gem! They had SO much to offer and so many records I haven’t been able to find. I snagged Contra plus Born This Way by Lady GaGa and Give Up by The Postal Service but I definitely still left a few behind I’ll probably regret 😬 If you are in the area, definitely head in. It was a perfect mix of new + used vinyl and the location was really cool. I’ll definitely be back soon!

When this album (black mile to the surface) came out in 2017 it ripped my heart of my chest, rung it out, then replaced it with a ghost heart. At that point in my life I was questioning a lot of things: a relationship, God, my purpose, etc etc. - the normal stuff 🤣. This album by didn’t answer any of the questions, but it gave me room to ask those questions. For me, the theme of the album is wrestling with uncertainty, and it’s timeliness in my life was spot-on. Do you have any albums like this in your life?
🎶🎶🎶🎶
The problem with this sort of record is that you have trouble diving back into an album that has shook you to the core. But today I stumbled on a cover of “the Gold” -(check it out, it’s really good), and now I’m sucked right back into to it’s octopus-like clutches. Thanks for the masterpiece

Happy Halloween!
Good experience doing business with Hardy Boys Records and Comics this morning. Dean is very knowledgeable and his offer was excellent.
Good doing business with Hardy Boys Records today. Very knowledegable and fair offer.
Great Day today! The Funkadelic was the jugular find 👍🏽
Gonna ask a dumb question.....what can I use to clean vinyl, especially a picture disc? I have a soft cloth and a natural all purpose cleaner. Kinda like glass cleaner with no ammonia. Would this be safe to use? I normally soak the cloth and wipe down everything. Just want to ask before I ruin something.
My wonderful sister-in-law grabbed it for me while I was stuck at work!
My later afternoon haul! Always gotta get a new KISS tee and Ive been eyeballing these Superman cards for over a year or so, just never pulled the trigger. I had them back when I as a teenager. Watched the last night and have been in a Superman mood. Finally got them!
Thanks Hardy Boys Records and Comics. Today’s FUNK haul 👍🏽
I checked out this place last week looking for some 80's/New Wave stuff, and it was a treasure trove. I walked out with 11 albums but had to back off a bit because I could easily have taken another 10 or so albums. Great place to shop with accurate grading.
R&B Load today on my monthly visit ! Thanks !
My monthly trip. Left with a “handful “. Thanks
Picked these up yesterday. Thanks!

BTW, I may have some comics for sale. What's your process for that? I may have 2-4 long boxes. Not sure yet.
