What hurts my karma does wonders for my wallet.
If you're located far from St. Johns check out Vinyl Resting Place's website for a complete list of their stock before heading out.
Now, with the expanded vinyl section, Everyday Music is the record collector's wet dream. Make sure to cruise the discount section. Cheap!
Head straight to the back of CD Game Exchange to the one & two dollar movies for a cheap night in. Keep it or return it to get some $$ back.
Hit up 360 Vinyl before your DJing gig to stock up on vintage hip hop and electronic, but go early, they close at seven.
While their high prices will prevent you from ever thinking you've hit "the jackpot," they do supply copies of Vice magazine. Walk in and they're located immediately to your left on the rack.
I'm a little scared to recommend Jump Jump because I want to keep his stacks and stacks of affordable gems all to myself. No new titles or modern, best for old school everything. Knock, it's probably locked, but the guy's in the back.
The Record Room is quickly becoming North Portland's premier event space with concerts, rock doc showings, and best of all, you can trade your records for beer.
