Geraldine's boutique vinyl record store and coffee shop

Relive the past and dig for your favourite albums, or just drop in for a coffee while listening to your favourite music.

The Record Keeper is an independent vinyl record store where you can enjoy a good coffee while listening to your favourite music.

Stephen and Katrina welcome you to relive the past of browsing or digging in record stores while helping to create a more sustainable future.

 

Sustainability is at the forefront of what we want to do. We are using solar power in new storage heaters, to spin the vinyl and to make your coffee.

 

We have restored one of Geraldine’s oldest shops which first opened in 1890. Now it will be the home of classic albums from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s as well as new releases from local Kiwi artists.

 

We are easy to find at 116 Talbot Street being next to the Fire Station in Geraldine.

We're on mission... a mission from God!

Andrea Greene and Ged - double date? 😜😍🎼😎

GERALDINE’S LESS TORTURED POETS DEPARTMENT ❤️

Thanks to an initiative by AMY ROSS, dedicated Taylor Swift fans came to the Record Keeper last night to not only listen to Taylor’s latest album on vinyl, but to also look closely at the lyrics of selected tracks and discuss the meanings behind them.

The Swifties were delighted (but probably not surprised) to learn that The Tortured Poets Department 31-song double album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts in the States for the week ending April 25.

Amy Ross was ably assisted by Amy Thomlinson and Kate Payne who helped with the evening’s programme and spun the vinyl.

In true Taylor Swift style there was plenty of sparkle in the room with
Sophie Wheeler winning the prize for Best Dressed!

The Record Keeper has copies for sale of three vinyl variants containing a different bonus track each (“The Manuscript,” “The Albatross,” and “The Black Dog”).
