Have you read Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity book? Or maybe watched the adapted film with John Cusack playing the leading role? If yes, then you already know why I recommend this place. If not, then don’t bother yourself with reading or watching it, just go inside and check this place out.
The shop is just a few steps away from Town Hall Square, right opposite to Depeche Mode bar, there you will find a rare collection of old vinyl records, coins, stamps, postcards, badges and other small tokens from the Soviet Era and even earlier days of the first Estonian Republic and Tsarist Russia.
But mostly it’s all about old vinyls, however, don’t worry; you don’t have to waste your time looking for a needle in a haystack. Records are carefully selected and restored and you have 2 decks for listening at your disposal. If you are a devoted music lover then this selection will keep your mind entertained for some time. And don’t be shy – have a chat with the shopkeeper Vadim, he will provide you with useful knowledge about his collection and give some insight into the local music scene.
Last time when I was there I got two Herbie Hancock’s LPs for my collection for €7 each.
