There are amplifiers, keyboards and whole sections of records and sheet music, but this is not just a music store. The 150 by 50 foot space is filled wall to wall and floor to ceiling with the old and the new in an assortment of shelves and cabinets that flank five aisles(for the thin shoppers only) which run the length of the store. If you don't find what you are looking for, Glenn will find it for you. There are even a couple of cases of items that are not for sale. That is Glenn's museum of Putman County memorabilia. While living in Hermossa Beach, California, I had my recording studio, (Allen is also a musician)... we'd go to the big recording studios and buy stuff they no longer used. Some people like everything nice and neat. Glenn limits himself to running his Antiques-Music Store.
"I'm getting away from used electronics. I'm getting brand new items. The Chinese are making new stuff cheaper than you could buy used a few years ago. I started getting envolved with manufacturers of musical instruments in California... I love music." "I advertise in the phone books in an 80 mile radius and on the internet with ads in several international web sites, (including his own www.CrescentCityMusic.biz) but, especially with guitars, people like to come in and feel them.
There seems to be 2 breeds of people, those who love this kind of store and those who hate it. "Some tourist open the door and turn their noses up and walk away. Some people walk in and stay for hours. I have a unique store. I have what I like to say is: A world-class store in a one-stop-light town.
