Vendors traveled from across California today to swap and sell records at the San Luis Obispo Record Swap Pop Up Sale.

The event ran from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Libertine Brewing Company on Broad Street in San Luis Obispo.

8 vendors and more than 100 people came from San Francisco, Bakersfield, Oxnard, Oakland and San Luis Obispo County to share vinyl records with the community.

The event featured brunch and mimosas.

Co-owner of Traffic Records and Organizer of SLO Record Swap Manual Barba said this event serves as a compliment to the local records store, Boo Boo Records.

Barba said the swap is also about connecting with people and sharing music memories.

“I hear a lot about this resurgence in vinyl records but for a lot of us… it never really went away,” Barba said. “We’ve listened to records start to finish since we were little kids.”
