I would play with this all day, so awesome.

Would be wicked if you could post the PDFs, James. If only to look at the albums you selected.

Would be five stars, but the t-shirts all seem to be for small children.

lol

Definitely my fave ilx thread after 11 odd years here. Amazing work James. You could make a fortune selling these. Esp if you charged for different album covers made to order.
I know I'd buy one. Put me first in the queue if you do! I wish I had the skills to make one, was always hopeless at art.

pfunkboy (Algerian Goalkeeper), Tuesday, 21 February 2012 21:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

The store should be called TINYL. That is all.

I'll put together some instructions tonight and upload the PDFs somewhere after that. I checked and it's a few more than 3 or 4 pages. My memory is falling apart from sniffing all the glue involved in this thing, obviously.

May dozens of tiny record stores follow in it's wake...

next project: tiny model of a 3-story tower records ca. 1995, complete with escalator, metal detectors, and classical-music room separated from the rabble by thick glass.

Six inch tall version of me thumbing through all the UK magazines in the basement of the Toronto location.

classical-music room separated from the rabble by thick glass.

haha, yeah. actually i think the Jazz room had that, too -- at least, the one at Belden and Clark in Chicago did, I'm pretty sure

Stormy Davis, Wednesday, 22 February 2012 06:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah, it did.

xp Not only did the jazz room at the Tower in Chicago have rabble-proof glass, but the "Pop/Vocal/Easy Listening" room had it, too. The latter was where I found Ray Charles, after looking through every other possible section for about an hour.

The sequel: a tiny little second-hand bookshop to the same scale...
