Turntable Records on Aylesbury market

Record fans who are missing Aylesbury market's record stall will be happy to know that the service is now available online.

Angela Collings, who runs the popular Saturday Turntable Records stall has been forced to diversify her business further, due to the hands on nature of browsing her stock.

She isn't able to have a stall at the market any time soon, so has got to work online to keep things ticking over.

She said: "The new rules make it impossible to sell records.

"It’s perfectly understandable but you can’t run a record business with customers not being allowed to touch your stock.

"Thankfully I’ve always done mail order and during lockdown I’ve been extremely busy.

"I have a few mail order accounts and supply other dealers with job lots as I have a large quantity luckily in stock.

"I’m sure when this is all over I’ll go back to face to face retail. If you are looking for a specific record you can always ask me via email."

Angela is now asking shoppers to email her their record 'wishlist' so that she can see if she has any of the items in stock.
