OLD BOISE GUITAR CO. T-SHIRTS NOW AVAILABLE AT THE RECORD EXCHANGE!

The Old Boise Guitar Co. lives on in our hearts here at The Record Exchange — and also in our T-shirt section.

Now available at the RX is an assortment of Old Boise Guitar Co. tees in various colors and sizes. Which is to say, rock on.

The Old Boise Guitar Co. was a Downtown Boise institution and musicians’ favorite for 26 years. Owned and operated by a musician for musicians, it was the type of shop that numbers too few these days, and we are proud to honor its legacy by carrying shirts bearing the Old Boise Guitar name.

IN THE RECORD EXCHANGE GIFT SHOP: 2010 BEST TOY WINNER UGLYDOLL!

Congratulations to Uglydoll, winner of the 2010 Best Toy award from the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, the independent guide to children’s media!

Here in The Record Exchange Gift Shop, we’ve been big fans of Uglydoll for a while, and we’ll give this one a quick “what they said” and let the Oppenheim folks tell you why:

“It will be hard to choose just one of the terrific new Uglydolls this season. Consider Ninja Batty Shogu, a black fleece fellow with big blue eyes, red nose and three yellow teeth. Or consider Wippy, a pink rabbit-like creature with tall ears and gray eyes and two yellow teeth. There is also coral-colored Mynus, who has a singular bump on her head and a goofy smile. Her tag says she’s the one you should turn to when you are in trouble.

Also a good choice, Pointy Max, a green fellow with a very pointy head and one all-seeing eye smack dab in the middle of his face. Oh, there are others, such as Pink Flatwoodsey with a tall pointy head; Ket, a bluish looking dog-like doll; MIJ, who seems to be asking a question; and Picksey who claims to be able to inhabit several spaces at the same time.

Honestly, you’ll have to make up your own mind. Dolls in series often run out of steam, but this year’s Uglydolls are really even better than in the past.”

The Uglydoll family comes in three different sizes and a multitude of colors, plus Uglydoll beanies! Pay a visit to the RX Gift Shop and check ‘em out today!

IN THE RECORD EXCHANGE GIFT SHOP: SILLY, SASSY SOCKS FOR STOCKINGS!

One of our favorite new items in The Record Exchange Gift Shop is the selection of socks from Sock It To Me (our customers seem to be digging them, too).

Sock It to Me makes fun, funky socks—socks with tacos, cupcakes, ninjas, mustaches, unicorns and other things magical. Sock It to Me continually strives to make quality products with unique and original designs, and it shows in their bold, bright designs.

Among the socks currently available in the RX Gift Shop are women’s crew and knee highs (outer space, birds on a wire, hearts on fire, classic argyle and many more) and men’s crew socks featuring designs such as bicycles, mustaches, octopi and our favorite, deer — perfect for wearing whilst listening to Blitzen Trapper and stroking your beard on a contemplative winter eve.
