The Rolling Record Store is ready to hit the road and head West to Texas! We’re stocked with new RRS merchandise and plenty of road-ready records. Check out our stops:
What new items does the truck have, you ask? Have a look:
3 new t-shirts, 3 new stickers, a SXSW travel badge, custom RRS guitar picks, a fresh new tote bag, and a travel mug to help you pull that all-nighter home from Austin.
We also have a custom pop-up Rolling Record Store post-card for those of you who still enjoy the romance of a handwritten letter. We even installed a RRS mailbox so you can send it right from the truck! Check it out:
