Vintage and Vinyl in Corvallis ?!?
We found vintage and vinyl in Corvallis. A Haberdashery, and a classic record store that you should definitely visit next time you’re in Corvallis. Or just go there anyway!
“The Alley” is the Men’s clothing store presented by Nancy Kneisel. Walk into the store and you feel cozy like a haberdasher’s environs should feel. The Alley has both vintage and contemporary men’s resale clothing stocked neatly on it’s racks and shelves. The store also keeps accessories on their shelves that you can pair with everything from casual clothing to men’s suits. The shop also stocks new shoes. When you walk in and immediately feel comfortable. The layout of the shop gives an inviting, easy feeling, and the service is personal. Nancy also operates two other shops for women that are nearby that you might want to stop in on. These have mostly high quality resale fashions in great condition.
HAPPY TRAILS RECORDS – Selling Vintage Vinyl In Corvallis for 30 Years!
Around the corner from The Attic is Happy Trails Records. A neighborhood vinyl shop with a 30 yr history providing quality used, vintage, and new pressings is rare.
The owner is Doug DiCarolis. He is knowledgeable about his inventory of records and discs, and helpful like you’d expect in a record shop. Its hard to find that at corporate stores. Expect to find collectible and just great music recordings in many different genres on 33 1/3 vinyl and on CD.
Doug was very nice and told us about the shop’s history. He told us that once upon a time the shop carried 78’s and 45’s for enthusiasts in their inventory too. But unfortunately they didn’t sell. There wasn’t a big enough market for them in Corvallis. We found expertly groomed bins of LPs featuring everything from jazz to punk rock. We had to buy the copy of “Introducing the Beatles” that popped up in the $1 bin. The jacket was covered with notes on which member performed lead vocals each song. Just a little slice of British pop loved by an innocent American teen. Perfect.
