Whether its clothes, books, furniture, vinyl records, or what have you, hunting down many of the old-school finds you've got on your wish list will often take weeks or even months to find and can often involve tedious tasks like negotiating with various online sellers, combing through endless posts on niche Facebook groups, and scouring every nook and cranny of neighborhood specialty shops.
In case you're on the lookout for vinyl records to add to your collection, here's where you can go to continue your current search party: Cebu City has some cool under-the-radar record shops with impressive collections of vinyl worth checking out. Drop by these vinyl record shops the next time you're in Cebu City.
