so this isn't TOTALLY crafting per say- but i do listen to music constantly when i do craft so maybe it is- but i live in the cleveland area and would love to know where i could get some good vinyl records. i'm just a student so i'm not rich, but i'm sure there has to be a good place to start looking around here. i got a record player for christmas, and realized i only own one record. (my mom has some but her music tastes and my music tastes... differ greatly) i'm looking for a place to find music such as old rock and roll or indie ( if those kinds of bands put out records for some readon).
 
p.s. if anyone wanted to give their old vinyls to an appreciative girl...

i get most of my vinyl at thrift stores. you have to dig through lots of shitty albums but i usually come out with at least couple of good ones. i also have weird taste in music tho.  lol. i lucked out, both of my parents have awesome taste in music and vast record collections so i just steal theres whenever i visit.

Another good place to look are flea markets. Especially in the summer, when they have the outdoor vendors, there are people who only sell vinyl - you can usually find what you're looking for!  There's one at the old Memphis drive-in, and, if you're up for a drive, Jamie's flea market in Amherst & the Hartville flea market are also really good.  You could also try Suite Lorain - they've got tons of vinyl, though it's a chore to look through unless they've just organized it.

There is a store in Akron called Square Records that sell new and used records.  It is actually in Highland Square which is about 5 min. from downtown Akron. I cannot tell you their prices as I have never been in the store. I know it maybe a little far (from Cleveland)but there is some cool things to check out in Highland Square.

I don't know much about Ohio (besides Cinci - where my mom lives), but there are a ton of record stores that sell their products online.  My favorite is ear x-tacy in Louisville, KY.  Also, if there is a music label (especially indie) that you like, you can probably order vinyl directly from them.  Good luck!

Have you been to Record Exchange in Coventry/Cleveland Hts?  I used to go there all the time when I was in college *ahem, many moons ago*.  I recall that their lower level was dedicated to nothing but vinyl.

If you can't find what you're looking for it won't be a wasted trip -- you can go across the street to Big Fun and check out the cool vintage toys or grab a great meal at Tommy's.

Good luck in your search for vinyl goodiness!   Smiley
