Best CD Store (Used) 

Record Exchange

When it comes to used record stores, there are the depressing ones — full of major-label failures and Pablo Cruise cardboard cutouts, veritable museums of broken dreams and dashed hopes. Then there are the inspiring ones: the stores where you're guaranteed to new and exciting sounds, even (especially) if you don't have a specific purchase in mind. St. Louis is fortunate to have one of the inspiring ones in the Record Exchange. Housed in a former St. Louis Public Library building, this Hampton Avenue institution is overwhelming no matter how often you stop by. Not only home to millions of CDs, vinyl albums and singles, it also has VHS tapes, DVDs, used musical instruments, old stereos and tape decks. Put aside at least a few hours. You'll need them.
