There are certain places that make you wonder as you walk out: “Should I tell everyone I know about this establishment or keep it a secret?”. Yep. This is that. Part secondhand vinyl shop, part café, Swanny’s is hidden off the beaten path in the Modbury Heights shopping centre, and is sure to be your future Sunday hangout. Originally situated in Lobethal, the new-and-improved space opened just under a month ago and already has my heart.
As a person who has a record player, (pretentious round of applause ensues) it’s pretty rare for me to spend my cash money on vinyl. In saying that, I’m pretty sure I could spend my life savings here, with a shitload of absolute steals in every corner. I saw a mint condition copy of Sgt. Pepper’s tucked away in a box for a ludicrous $50. For any of you playing at home who aren’t into that kind of thing, I also noticed a little book called Game of Thrones by unknown author George R.R. Martin for a measly $10. I managed to limit myself to purchasing two things: the original cast recording of Jesus Christ Superstar and No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom on CD. The friend I dragged along with me bought a Triple J compilation from 1997 and a Destiny’s Child album for a modest $15.
Not to mention it also feels pretty damn good to walk around a shop and see signs like “Local Produce” and “Adelaide Designer” next to the quirky handbags and clothing adorned on the walls. Swanny’s embodies small business, and has the world on offer for those who are rockin’ the suburbs.
