IN THE RECORD EXCHANGE GIFT SHOP: WHAT TIME IS IT? ADVENTURE TIME!

adventure_time_me_3dbt_webAdventure Time has a rabid following amongst teenagers and adults alike, so it’s not surprising that one critic described the show as “basically what would happen if you asked a bunch of 12-year-olds to make a cartoon, only it’s the best possible version of that, like if all the 12-year-olds were super geniuses and some of them were Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and the Marx Brothers.”

Adventure Time lovers will find plenty to love in The Record Exchange Gift Shop, including themed Memory and Monopoly games, posters, plush dolls, belts, keychains, magnets, patches, stickers and more!

IN THE RECORD EXCHANGE GIFT SHOP: HALF-PINT SILK-SCREENED CANDLES!

candlesThe candle market this time of year is like the mall – crowded. In The Record Exchange Gift Shop, we make it easy to get around – and easy to find a great candle or two to cover your Christmas list wishes.

A favorite new arrival of ours is this collection of half-pint candles from Skeem. Each glass jar is silk-screened and topped with a printed metal lid with images inspired by vintage fabrics and wallpaper patterns. After burning for up to 50 hours, the empty jars can be re-purposed on a desk to house paper clips or in the kitchen for sea salt!
