Record Heaven, Aka CD Cellar

CD Cellar

By Serenat Kivilcim

Last Saturday, I had the chance to visit and spend an afternoon at the record heaven, aka CD Cellar in Arlington, Va. It’s  truly  my new hangout destination.  Selling records and CD’s since 1992, the staff  at this Mom & Pop store is extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and the selection is unrivaled. The rustic, funky atmosphere gives way to a musical oasis with records and CD’s lining the walls and shelves. Some may say records are obsolete, but there is something innately charming and warm about placing an old record on the deck and letting the music carry you away. It makes the music tangible and real, unlike the curtailed experience of an MP3 or internet stream. So, there we were… lost among the rows of these beautiful artifacts. There is only so much a humble article can reveal, so, experience it for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
