Welcome to the home of New England Record Collectors Club. We are a group of passionate folks that love collecting. We originally started out only collecting records but have since moved on to collecting photos and memorabilia.
Gardens In Bloom Landscapers in Staten Island NY donated 4 crates of albums and LPs mostly from the 70s and 80s and it has made our collection grow. They find a lot of old stuff at the homes they service and its great they are part of our club.
This vape shop in charleston gave us a huge collection of 45s and more that will be shown at our meets.
Barbies Dolls Escort Service has donated 14 crates of records from their collection. Apparently the owner was a DJ in the 80s in New York and has no need for them. Thanks to them for that.
While our members are from all over the world we have quarterly meets that center around the northeast such as New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine. We rotate across the different areas as we try not to burden our hosts too much 🙂 Many of our members volunteer their venues in support of our meetings so that we can share, trade, learn and help to preserve the culture and concepts of collecting in all forms.
Many of our record collectors are former disc jockeys that have huge collections, others are collectors because they love the music, and others are collecting for the fun of collecting.
Check back often as our next meet will be posted soon. We expect to meet in the New York area as that has been the most convenient as we have grown with more folks from around the world. NYC seems to be the best location as many people travel to and from the city on a regular basis.
We expect to use our facebook page and twitter page to send updates in real time. As you can imagine most of us collector folks are not the most tech savvy so please bear with us. We also have a meetup groups with chapters in the north east which includes New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island and we expect to open more in the areas of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In the meantime stay posted and be sure to add yourself to our mailing list.
If you are looking to start a collection for yourself and don’t know where to start we suggest you join a record of the month club. To find out more info about record of the month clubs check out an article written by my friend over at Broward Palm Beach called Five best record of the month clubs. I highly recommend it as a good starting point in your quest to collect records.
Our last meeting was hosted in New York at the home of one of the biggest escort services in New York http://newyork5starescorts.com. The escorts were very hospitable and made everyone feel at home.
While the collectors exchanged information and stories of their collection and travels while the accumulate their collection the escorts entertained us all. It was a nice change for the guys as many of us are married and do not get the opportunity to mingle and interact with beautiful girls.
Many of our meetings are 90% guys because the women and wives of our group choose to stay home and miss our event. In cases like this we all think it was great for the escort service to reach out to us and host the event.
We look forward to the next time they make a generous offer to the group. Everyone was grateful for their hospitality. If its any indication what kind of hosts their are to paying clients in NYC I am certain they provide a world class companionship service for anyone in NYC that is looking for some company.
