Everything from $1 used albums to rare finds priced much higher, Plum Creek Records & Tapes hopes to hit touch the musical hearts of Lockhart.

The store, owned by Max Yancy and Grace Reyer, had a soft opening for much of May but is bustling now with a full slate of material in its cozy business.

Customers were seen on a recent day thumbing through the variety of albums PCR&T has obtained, some through co-op agreements with Antone’s Record Shop in Austin as well as consignment through local collectors.

Plum Creek Records & Tapes will be open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., and Friday from 1-6 p.m.

The store will offer new and used albums, with its focus to stock local artists such as RF Shannon, Chazz and Emile Bessette, Rattlesnake Milk, Jane Leo, Hoyt Van Tanner, and others.

“We will sell our owns merchandise such as koozies, posters, stickers, trading cards, songbooks, tote bags, shirts, magnets, and other stuff,” Reyer said. “We have a couple of new items that are in production right now.”

Yancy said that Reyer is the in-house graphic designer.

There is plenty of vintage material available at Plum Creek Records & Tapes, including 45 vinyl albums and cassette tapes, something Yancy said has become popular again.

Plum Creek Records & Tapes sponsored its fifth show since arriving, a trio of artists who performed last week at Commerce Hall. The store plans on sponsoring additional shows in July and August.

Also, PCR&T plans to being in guest deejays to spin records at the store during First Friday events.

Currently, Plum Creek Records & Tapes is sharing its building with Suite 103 Hair Studio, which uses the back of the office. The store is at 400 S. Main Street, Suite 103, in Lockhart.

Used albums range from $1 to $20, although they have sold some rare finds for $100 and $150.
