We (Josh & Rick) will be at this record fair on the campus of Wesleyan University. It’s the 3rd one and it is still growing – it’s been better and better each time and now there are about 8-10 more vendor spaces so it should continue that trend. And it’s FREE!
There will also be a pizza vendor so you know you can’t lose. Pizza. Records. Oh and a prize wheel! I have it on good authority some of the prizes might just be a Lava Lamp, a sealed Dio “Last In Line” record, board games, and Leonard Cohen DVDs.

The WFMU fair is huge. It is basically the biggest one that happens in the world on any given year. True Story. If you can think of a record then most likely it is there (well, maybe not all of them, but you know…). Besides the records and CDs there are also a ton of great interesting people (read: people watching for miles and miles).
Josh, Ben (Mammoth Hunter) and I (Rick) will be at the fair Friday-Sunday. Redscroll Records will be set up on SATURDAY ONLY at tables E4 & E5. The full dealer list should be up soon here: http://wfmu.org/recfair/rf_dlrlist.html. Our friends Trash American Style & Painkiller will also be there. The list will be ridiculous when it’s published so definitely keep an eye out for that.
Scenery gets all colorful. Food gets all appley and pumpkiny. Clothes get longer. Majick happens. Pagans perform rituals while the darkness enshrouds this hemisphere. School is in full swing. Prime vacation time has passed (unless you are a wizard).
Records start showing up everywhere. There are a slew of record fairs. The biggest fair we’ll be set up at is the biggest one you can imagine: WFMU. It is guaranteed that we will sell a bevy of vinyl there. You can get a jump on that by buying up our good stock now!
We spent all summer digging, hunting and following maps to hidden treasures. We are overflowing with grade-A used vinyl. It is a prime time to get here and dig through our stacks.
