TVD | Wide World of (Vinyl) Stores

After last Friday's request for photos of your global vinyl ventures, the responses have begun to trickle in. TVD reader CeeGee forwarded the following:

"Recently, I made a trip to Stockholm, Sweden. These pics are from a record store located in the Old Town area called Gamla Stan. A little pricey due to the store being located in a somewhat touristy area, but a nice variety of classics and hard to find albums - lots of German pressings. The owner was quite nice and laid back - while we perused the stacks he soaked up some sun outside the shop. Per Wikstrom, Swedish producer/manager in photo with his wall covering samples. "

Keep 'em coming folks!

What a great photo and great serial blog topic!
I only wish my little podunk town had a record store left that I could take a picture of.
The one I remember most fondly from my childhood was Sam The Record Man (if you've never seen photos, google it. Really impressive) in Downtown Toronto. Recently went bye bye, a sad day indeed...

I kinda already did, VD. I posted it on my blog back in January (although I cheated a little; I had an introduction then posted the Toronto Star's excellent obit underneath--couldn't have improved on it!). Here's the link:
