Where to hunt treasures in Budapest? – Vinyl records

Are you eager to search for hidden treasures? Do you love music? Were you born in the era of VHS tapes and audio cassettes? Then flea markets and garage sales won’t be unfamiliar to you and swopping must have been your school activity in between the lesson breaks. Since buying records online takes the fun out of collecting, vinyl hunts become a great source for building a record collection. Here are the top spots every record buyer must consider to check out in Budapest. Remember: records can be very expensive, never pay more than you think a record may worth, always check the record sleeves as sometimes records can fall out in the shelfs or sometimes people mix and match records.
