It was two years ago that Andy Phillips stumbled upon what he dubs the “white whale” for vinyl collectors, a storage unit chock full of tens of thousands of records. Phillips had put up an ad on Craigslist as he was building up stock for his online record store (and formerly a blog under the same name), Wax Atlas.

A man responded to the ad, saying his father, who had owned a storage facility, passed away, and he was looking to offload a 15-by-20-foot unit full of vinyl, VHS tapes and other media.

“The urban legend that we all talk about, like, Oh, there’s a storage locker somewhere that’s filled with thousands of records that have been there forever… that’s what this was,” Phillips said.

Only a month ago, Mount Vernon’s resident comics and collectibles shop, Collector’s Corner, decided to call it quits. Management for the N. Charles Street store wrote in an email newsletter that business just wasn’t as strong as they’d hoped it would be, and said “after giving it [three] good years, it’s just time to move on.”

The go-to gift spot is doubling its square footage and moving into a brand-new, custom designed store just steps from its original space.
