Crate digging for vinyl records is a pastime in and of itself, but with so many record stores buying and selling wares it's difficult for any given purveyor to have a competitive advantage. Enter The Record Deck UK, a record store on an actual seafaring vessel that travels around the United Kingdom.
The Record Deck UK officially set sail in May of last year in a "jalopy of a narrowboat," but has since posted up by the Princess of Wales Pub on Lea Bridge road in East London, where it will stay until making its rounds again in April.
Visitors of The Record Deck UK can stay current on its whereabouts by following it on Twitter. Below are the scheduled dates of its upcoming tour around the country:
