Toowoomba Record Fair Butter Beats LPs
The Toowoomba Record Fair attracted large crowds of enthusiasts.


The Toowoomba Record Fair is expertly managed by Jason Woodward of Butter Beats. For the crowds of people rummaging enthusiastically, it's a happenin' thing.

Old favourite songs, vintage LPs, rare finds and more to be browsed. Choosing LPs from 200 crates were crowds mainly from Brisbane on this morning. Business was brisk and the musical accompaniment was spun by whomever chose the next record.

LP selections from Butter Beat's collection.
You name the musical style, it was there. For example, jazz, hip-hop, folk, rock, world music, synth pop, kraut rock, exotica, soul, rockabilly, reggae, classical, library records and even sound effects for $5. LPs were being snapped up at great value prices. Some cool crates offered three LPs for $10. Payment could lower your price if you had a big stack. All ages of people were voraciously grabbing stacks of bargains.

This was the Record Fair's first time at the St Thomas More school hall, South St, Centenary Heights. Mr Woodward pockets the sales, but the gold coin entry goes back into the school hall fund. Having been an avid collector for thirty years, the vinyl all comes from Woodward's personal collection. Having such an excess inspired him to share it with the region, while helping to pay the bills at home.

Refreshments are not offered, but this location is handy to the popular Southtown shops and eateries. Plenty of street parking with limited on-site parking.

The Record Fair is held every six months in Toowoomba, but also travels around to Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Cash and EFTPOS sales available. This could be just the gift for your grandfather's or aunty's next birthday. Check the Facebook page for more details.
