«A guy came to me and told me he was planning on opening a record shop»

Bruno30 opens up to us and tells us more about his shop specialized in Funk and 80s.

Can you introduce yourself, is this your main activity?
My name is Bruno TRIVÈS, I am a big fan of funk music and a former record shop owner.

How did you end up with such a big record collection?
I have been collecting for 30 years; I built up my collection by digging in the crates here and there.

Give us a story as a seller
A little story, 20 years ago: I had a stall in a record fair located in Montpellier in the south of France and I was a bit disappointed for not having sold much that day. The friend who was with me was like everyone, in a hurry to pack and leave the place but I insisted on staying till the very end, who knows?... A guy came to me and told me he was planning on opening a record shop, so he needed a lot of records. I sold him a complete crate of vinyl records. No need to tell you that he made my day! I was more than happy! Since then, it never happened to me again…
