{record player setup}

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.

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!!!
