Treasures found by an expat living in Indonesia
Excellent WORK!!! THANKS A LOT....I'm going to Indonesia for 5 months, and i want to know about your favs vinyl stores....thanksBruno from Argentina
you're welcome.... and ehrrr, i'm sorry to tell you, but vinyl.... indonesia is emptied out of it's vinyl, it has been for quiet a few years, and since about 3 or 4 years the locals have started to collect, almost impossible to find it nowaday... you might try in jakarta, blok m there are some stores but they ask CRAZY prices and you being a foreigner, you will pay 4 or 5 times the normal price (if you're lucky) and even there you won't find much.,.... or jalan surabaya in jakarta but they are mostly emptied out too now.... the worst are those kids from filthy rich families, they buy EVERYTHING and sell it for mega prices again on internet, it's dog eat dog now, i'm not kidding.... I have my contacts and those i keep secret, took me years to build that up.....
