Crate Divers Alert!

thrift-trader_saleEarlier this year, the mezzanine floor of San Diego’s Hillcrest Thrift Trade collapsed under its own weight of vinyl records spilling thousands of records out through the shop window and down onto the street.

Now the rest of the store looks set to experience a similar fate, as the building is due to be demolished, leaving the second hand record emporium looking to shift its enormous ceiling-wrecking collection of records before the end of the year.

As Instagram user Simon Griffith (who took the image above) points out: “For those of you who haven’t been, this represents about one-twentieth of their vinyl at this location alone.”

In any case, how much vinyl do you need to have in storage before you can casually drop ten thousand records out back in the car park, as Thrift Trader did earlier this year!

Crate divers – this looks like a must!
