Rock Around the Clock...

...or bowl, or coaster set.  While we appreciate the portability of iPods and CDs, there was just something about vinyl records. Was it the anticipation? The ambiance of the record store? The liner notes you could read without a microscope? Now you can reconnect with your inner rocker in an eco-friendly and practical way. Vinylux vintage record design crafts new products from old friends. We have clocks fashioned from 45s and LPs, LP bowls* in two designs, and record label coaster sets.

An added treat this time is the calibre of artists we have received: Beatles, Rolling Stones, Doors, Moody Blues, Led Zeppelin, the Who -- a line-up that will surely become a sell-out soon.

"One time in San Francisco I was standin' in an airport line
In one bag I had all my clothes the other was all them ol' records of mine
The lady said I could only bring one bag
I had two, Oh what a drag
I had to jump on the plane and leave all my clothes behind"
-Todd Snider, Vinyl Records

* Due to the unknowable origins of the records, bowls are not intended for use with food. They are not dishwasher or microwave safe.
