Thank you for supporting indie record stores. You rock!

Hot Wax Vinyl for Friday, July 19

About our Brick & Mortar Shop in Virginia Beach

  • Girl with headphones holding vinyl record

    We love vinyl!

    We have an amazing selection of vinyl, with over 12,000 records in almost every genre, new and pre-spun. We buy used vinyl daily, so you never know what you'll find. That said, if you don't find what you're looking for, we'd be delighted to special order it. We also stock a full line of accessories and a wide range of high-quality Audio Technica turntables and Edifier speakers. We also have over 10,000 CDs and hundreds of cassettes.

  • Stack of new release books on table

    Books rock, too!

    We also have a killer book selection, stocked from A-Z; fantasy, sci-fi, horror, comics, manga, teen fiction, kids books, history, classics, biographys, philosophy and so much more. We're loaded with the latest best sellers and broad selection of must-read staples. Most new books are discounted 10-30% and pre-enjoyed books are typically 50% (or more!) off the publisher's list.

  • Jazz wearing a Barbie Visor


    She's by far our biggest asset. A certified retail therapy dog, she loves belly rubs, and is softer than a chinchilla. She's also the biggest ham on the planet, so snap away. By the way, we are VERY dog (and chinchilla) friendly, but we need a heads up so we can secure Jazz as she gets anxious and barky when meeting new pups (and tasty chinchillas).

  • Wide shot of AFK Books & Records' Interior

    Over 50k groovy products in ~5,000 sq. ft. (That's BIG!)

  • Stack of Stephen King Books with Johnny Cash Records and actual cash.


    ...and King is cash! Is your media shelf overflowing with well-loved, but underutilized vinyl, CDs, and books? Share the love! Let us check out your gently pre-enjoyed goodness and get CASH to spend wherever you like. If you'd like to receive a free quote for your cool stuff, just swing on by, no appointment necessary. For more details hit up our Get Cash page.

  • Happy record store day customers ready to score some hot vinyl

    Record Store Day

    We don't mean to boast, but we have some pretty cool customers! We've been supporting RSD since 2011 (and RSD has been supporting us!). We're stoked for the next Black Friday RSD event, on November 29, 2024. We'll order EVERYTHING (and then some).

  • Crowd shot at the Paramore This is Why Listening Party

    Listening Events

    Be sure to follow us on socials like Facebook, Instagram and Youtube, to learn about fun early listening events and opportunities to meet your favorite authors and artists.

    It's also a great way to keep up on the latest releases and be the first to "call dibs" on our pre-enjoyed product scores.

    Need a unique gift?

    We have an ecclectic mix of fun gifty stuff. From zany educational toys for the kiddos, to artsy puzzles, Lava lamps, posters, merch, tapestries, highly offensive socks, dish towels, mugs, cat nip, incense, guitar accessories, crystals, gems, geodes and even a decent selection of disc golf gear. Whew! We gotcha covered, and then some!
