History

We began in 1994 as an informal collectors club that would meet monthly as the local swap meets around the Boston area. Our intent was to sell, swap & trade records and get to know like minded folks that were into the culture of collecting records.

Initially we spread the word by fax machine and telephone calls, now we simply email our entire lists when we have a meeting scheduled.

We have also expanded our interests to not only include records but most images4collectibles such as photos, action figures and automobiles. Its not that we were limited to only records but our initial founders started with records and as more folks joined us and met with us they brought along other collectibles and knowledge of them as well.

We are historians at heart and we love the stories and tales behind each and every item as well as the thrill of the hunt in finding these pieces and add to our collection. The average person will never understand this desire as it is not a common one. But we love it and we find it more exciting than anything else.
