Discovery of the Day: The Vinyl Vault

Just when I think I’ve explored all the hidden gems around me, I find a new one. Yesterday I discovered the Vinyl Vault for the first time, and I can’t believe I’ve never been there before. It turns out that the basement of the Power Building at 428 Portage holds the city’s largest used record collection – and the Vinyl Vault sale is your chance to rummage through it!

It’s run by the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, but the music spans all genres. I saw rock, jazz, country, Broadway, even kids’ music there – and all the records are priced at $2!

To find the Vault, you go to 428 Portage – a very ordinary-looking office building across from Portage Place –  and you’ll see a little stand-up sign outside advertising it. Go in and take the elevator down to the basement, and as soon as it opens you’ll see a rack of records and a table where a lovely gentleman will take your payment when you’re done. But where you really want to go is to the right just past his table. That’s the Vault – walls of floor-to-ceiling records carefully sorted by genre for your browsing pleasure! If you’re a vinyl fan, it’s way too easy to lose track of time – I spent most of my lunch hour there before I even realized it.

The Vault only opens once a month – it’s open right now 10 – 3 and will be again tomorrow, and then it shuts down again until September. Dates for the rest of the year/next year are: September 27, October 25, November 29, January 31, February 28, March 28, April 25, May 30, June 27

Happy hunting!

    term of thhe loan, whether it’s a va loan or another offline or online loan. Sinxe youu have
    aged and may have a medicall condition or two, don’t you dare cancel your current plan wiithout obtaining an approval (in writing) for a new policy
    you apply for. Washing machinee and dryer – typically when a home is sold, some appliances such as stoves, built-in dishwashers and often, refrigerators
    are left in the home to be transferrred too the buyer of the
    propery.Marimark Mortgage, Tampa, FL provides 30, 25, 20, 15, and
    10 year amortization period for the loan. Expunging a felonyy means that
    it is purged from the record as if it were never there in the first place.

    I hadn’t really thought much about “no money down”
    as a way to buy a house, those transactions just happened to be that way.
    In fact you can request that the seller pay up to 6% for
    the buyers costs and fees. Felony convictions can mean lower paying
    jobs, loss of voting privileges and even the inability to
    obtain loans. Courts may also choose probation for more of these offenders than jail time.

  4. Hi admin, i found this post on 20 spot in google’s search
    results. I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by high bounce rate.
    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest
    reason for high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the
    back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the search results your posts and
    pages will end up, so having reasonably low bounce rate is important for improving your rankings naturally.
    There is very handy wordpress plugin which can help you. Just search
    in google for:
    Seyiny’s Bounce Plugin
