Next time you’re thinking about perusing online stores for a record or relic, just drive to Bill’s instead. The record store has been a neighborhood staple in the historic Cedars neighborhood for nearly half a century, and the man behind the counter knows it all and then some. Bill Wisener’s music mecca is open to long-time collectors and newbies, and the doors are always open for fans looking to browse, buy or chat about the classics.
Gretchen Bell’s Dolly Python store has been enhancing wardrobes for over a decade, but don’t expect to find anything you could buy at any ‘ol store. Bell’s space is strictly old school, both in terms of music and memorabilia. Dolly Python offers endless oddities of unique antiques, creative clothing and enough music to keep you browsing and buying for hours. It’s no wonder that everyone from Jean Paul Gaultier to Kacey Musgraves has made their way to this must-see store.
