Music lovers, you might want to clear your Saturday—Black Gold is having a massive sale on LPs and 45s tomorrow. Over 3,500 vinyls will be up for grabs, each with a recession-friendly $1 price tag.
The quirky Carroll Gardens shop, one of our favorite record stores in New York, has been holding this semiannual sale for the past four years. Though most of the records on sale will be doubles or have minor imperfections, similar to inventory at outlet malls, many have never seen life on the shelves. In the six months since the last sale, the staff has been gathering the records in the storeroom; they use this event to clear the way for more music. The stock spans a mishmash of genres, including rarities and more popular selections.
For the best finds in this massive collection, get there when they open at 10am sharp. And even if the good ones are snatched up before you get the chance to rifle through the bins, this small store also sells freshly brewed coffee and antiques. After your vinyl shopping spree, we've got you covered on how to best explore the rest of the 'hood.
