Record Graveyard has a new home on Carpenter Street in Hamtramck, where the vintage record store has created a white, minimalist new facade in the house-turned-storefront.
"It's all fixed up and it has a tin ceiling," says Jeffery Garbus, president of Record Graveyard
. "We're looking to create a19 50s, old fashioned record store."
The 10-year-old business has moved between a handful of locations in Hamtramck over its lifetime. Garbus moved to the 1,000-square-foot space earlier this year because the 1920s-era building at 2610 Carpenter was well kept and ready for a move in. Garbus also liked that a number of its vintage features, such as the tin ceiling, were preserved.
He also liked the simplicity of it so he could make changes to the building in case a film crew wanted to rent out the storefront.
"I can always change the colors," Garbus says.
