Peter Dunn’s Vinyl Museum
Various locations, including 355 Yonge Street, 402 Bloor Street West, 594 Bloor Street West, and 2918 Lake Shore Boulevard West.

Started in 1978 in Kensington Market, Peter Dunn operated Vinyl Museum stores in several locations around the city until 1999. Over those two decades, browsers were treated to every form of record imaginable, from mainstream hits to rows of mysterious generic Russian albums. Potential buyers were sometimes advised by stickers than an album “plays well, but check quality.” There were also sometimes taped-on Biblical verses. Prices were generally rock bottom, even on sealed albums that commanded premiums elsewhere. “I have always taken an all-over-the-map approach,” Dunn told the Star in 1998, “where if something is round and still turns on a turntable, I’ll buy it.”

Occasionally a plastic sleeve with the Vinyl Museum’s cat mascot (based on a cross between Dunn’s pet Mingus and Looney Tunes character Sylvester) resurfaces amid the city’s record bins.
