This one is for the music lovers.
Or Hell, this is for people who love a ping of nostalgia, the smell of an old book store, or finding something antique and rare by scrummaging through an old store with your own hands.
A place that many people think is a myth is oh so very real and it’s nestled in the woods of Northern Maine.
The Largest Music Wearhouse in the Country
The website of Maine Record Sales proudly exclaims that they are, “The LARGEST Music Warehouse / Museum in the USA!”. We aren’t actually able to fact check that but who cares?
When you see the inside of this place, you’ll believe it.
Located on Route 15 in East Corinth, Maine Record Sales is a massive music museum and warehouse filled floor-to-ceiling with records, cassettes, 8-tracks, reel-to-teel tapes, CDs, books, and even more things for you to geek out over.
The three-story building is seriously chuck FULL of music, creating a literal maze of music to walk through.
The records you can’t find at the boujie thrift stores in Portland, you should probably be able to get your hands on at Maine Record Sales. This place isn’t for aesthetic, it’s for genuine and true music lovers to dive deep into decades and genres of records and memorabilia that sets your heart on fire.

You could spend hours and hours at this store and not even make a dent in the collection. If you do want to take the dive, Mainer shares that the spot is usually open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. and if you try to call and nobody answers, that doesn’t mean the shop owner Dave isn’t there.
Just show up, walk through the only door the building has, and find yourself immersed in Maine’s largest collection of music. It’s said that the spot has more than one million items and many are rare, rare findings.
You truly never know what hidden treasures are hiding in the nooks and crannies of our beautiful state.
