What’s old is new again.
And the resurgence in popularity of vinyl records sounded like a business opportunity to Adia Douglas. So the 16-year-old launched RPM Records in November–a vinyl record store in Brentwood, Calif. with the help of her parents.
RPM stands for Revolutions Per Minute on a phonograph. Vintage records, cassettes, CDs, memorabilia and more are for sale.
Of course, as a music lover herself, she wasn’t only thinking about cashing in on the craze.
“I really wanted to have music get bigger out here and expand the musical genres of my generation,” she tells San Jose Mercury News.
At the Brentwood, Calif. store she has vinyl records for sale in addition to a jam space for open mic nights. “I wanted a place that kids my age could hang out in and play their first gig here.”
