We are a new shop recently opened in Downtown Oakland. March 1st marked our opening day and we have been off to a great start! We are foremost a used record shop, offering 1000s of excellent titles at a variety of prices. We strive to offer something for everyone! We specialize in Jazz, Soul, Blues & Gospel. We also offer Soundtracks, Comedy, disco/soul & hip hop 12"s, Country & Folk, Classical, Hip Hop & a vast selection of 45rpm singles. We are working on building up our Latin (Mexico, Central & South America, Afro-Cuban, etc), Caribbean and African offerings and are proud to present our current collections.
As our name reflects, we also offer a fantastic selection of vintage items, including house and bar wares, kids what-nots, clothing and accessories for guys and gals and unique framed album covers for use as home decor. Our selections are always changing so keep an eye out for what's new to come!
In addition to the records and vintage, we are proud to be partnering with our friend's gallery LeQuiVive, (located a short walk from our shop), to offer a new selection of fine art on our walls on a monthly basis. We are excited to see what the Spring and Summer has in store for us! http://www.lequivive.com/ We are proud to have had the opportunity to open shop with the Wanderlust series, by Melanie Mccallum, on our walls! Feel free to contact us for information or to purchase a piece for your own collection!
|Melanie Mccallum's Wanderlust Series is up until March 31st|
We are looking forward to establishing a happy home for VAMP in the South of Broadway/Lakeside district of Downtown Oakland! At just a half block from Snow Park and 2 blocks from Lake Merritt in one direction and 2 blocks to Broadway and the 19th Street BART Station, as well as 3 blocks from the fantastic FOX Theatre, in the other, we are proud to be a part of this blossoming neighborhood! We will be participating in the festivities every 1st Friday Art Walk, so keep an eye out on our events schedule! We are open every day of the week, with the exception of Monday. Our shop is owner operated and you can find Tracy there during the week days and Fernando will be joining her on the weekends. We are always happy to welcome you into our home away from home and look forward to your visit!
