Hi friends! I’ve had DM after DM asking for more info on my record player. So, you better believe I’m going to write a post about it!!
You know I’m all about sharing All.The.Things!
Record players have always fascinated me. There is just something about flipping from side A to B and watching them spin. It’s also incredibly relaxing. As is with any music, I get it. It’s a total novelty, I know, but I just love it!
I remember blasting Prince at the Roberts house on their parents record player back in the 90’s. Dancing + singing at the top of our lungs.
I want to do the same thing with Bay. I’m so crazy thankful we both have a deep love for music ♥
I did a some research. Googled it!
Without spending a grip, I wanted something to begin with. Something that worked well. Something I could use my Bose bluetooth speaker with. Something simple. Something pretty!
Which brought me to the Crosley Cruiser Deluxe Portable 3-Speed Turntable with Bluetooth
I read ALL the reviews. Some great. Some bad. But this is exactly what I was looking for. Maybe someday I’ll venture out and buy a fancy record player, but for the time being, this is absolutely perfect for me.
Check out all the color/design options available……
I actually asked for this record player for Christmas and almost did a cartwheel when I opened it up Christmas morning. That is, if I knew how to do a cartwheel.
Fact: I have never been able to do a cartwheel. Like ever!
My Dad went in his garage Christmas day and pulled out a bunch of old records from my late Grandpa + Grandma Brown’s collection. He’s been storing this for as long as I can remember. Santana. Frank Sinatra. Beach Boys. Billy Joel.
One Sinatra record I opened up was brand new. Never opened.
Listening to the same vinyl that my grandparents once listened to makes my heart so incredibly happy.
Once I got it up and running, we are playing records constantly. I know it may seem like no big deal, but it’s just one more added touch that make our home feel so cozy. And I absolutely LOVE it!
Welcome to one of my favorite corners of our house. The record player nook.
It’s a fun conversation starter….Do you have such-and-such record? Where did you find this one? That song brings back the best memories.
Such a happy vibe!
Bay + I recently went to the Sac Antique Fair on the hunt for some new to us vinyl. I was so blown away at the variety and amount of vendors with mountains and mountains of vinyl. $10 later and we walked out with Aerosmith Toys in the Attic + Madonna You can Dance.
I cant wait to watch out collection grow.
I’ve got my eye on one of these storage racks once my vinyl collection grows! So gold and pretty. She’d make a great addition to my little corner.
If you’ve been considering purchasing a record player for your home, DO IT! It’s such a small investment to get you started. I promise you wont regret it for one second!!!
