Stellenbosch Streets, 2012

IMG_1083 copy

I took this picture in 2012 of the independently owned music shop Classix on CD in Stellenbosch.  I think the shop closed its doors after many years.  Usually these independant music dealers stock music which cannot be found in the bigger music retail shops.  The owners operating these stores are “walking music encyclopaedia’s”.  The biggest threat to these merchants keeping their doors open in our times are probably not the bad and clueless service we receive from big retail music store clerks, but digital downloads.  Despite this, you can find these little gems, sometimes in smaller towns.  One such store is Funky Vibes in Hermanus.  A must visit when you are in the area!!!
