2019 & BEYOND
NIGHT MARKETS, UPDATES & FUTURE PLANZ
The centre of Cardiff is always evolving and recently Church Street has become a particular focus of that transformation. The list of amazing restaurants and bars is always growing and as a result the Market has remained a centre point for the ever changing surrounding community.
CARDIFF NIGHT MARKET
Back in July, Cardiff Market proposed being open during an evening with the idea to let people who keep the city ticking over with their 9-5 jobs the chance to visit us and see what is on offer. And that was that, the Night Market was born and it proved a great success!
Based on the fun we all had Cardiff Market is holding another Night Market in November and we are already excited to be part of it once again.
This Night Market will coincide with the switching-on of the Cardiff Christmas lights and they have persuaded the original Cardiff Student Union’s 80s Nite (97 – 04) out of retirement to give us a one-off Stranger Things / Christmas inspired 80s disco to groove the evening along.
KELLYS RECORDS AND AUDIO T
Between the Night Markets we were kindly asked by the Cardiff branch of Audio-T if we would like to get involved in the event they were hosting for the launch of two new Rega turntables. We jumped at the chance and had a wonderful day talking to audio enthusiasts about their passion for music, collecting and much more.
At the beginning of 2019 we were contacted by a customer asking if we wanted to look at a collection of Opera CD’s. Orchestral music is something we’ve found rather daunting in the past but we were so impressed by the collection that we made it part of our stock and began the mammoth task of grading and database-ing each item individually (it took a while). As the collection hit our shelves we were shocked by how many people started to take an interest and as a result we have made some great new friends and have learned a lot about what is desirable within this genre.
Looking to the future we will to continue source the best quality used vinyl from far and wide as well as steadily improving the range of choice in our Reissue New & Sealed release section.
As always we would like to thank our loyal customers and look forward to meeting new ones.
