COLUMBIA, SC (WACH)--Music records may be a thing of the past, but for hundreds of local collectors, they were music to their ears Sunday.
The Columbia Art Museum held their 6th annual Greater Columbia record fair. 30 independent stores from across the southeast and sold popular and rare records to people.
The fair included discs of any and every music genre and ranger from $1 to hundreds of dollars.
And while ITunes, Spotify, and Pandora are the trendy choices for music in today's world, Organizer Matt Bradley said records still play an important role for fans.
"A lot of the records you find here may not be on Spotify," Bradley said. "You may not be able to find the MP3 or even the CD. A lot of it has not been re-issued since the final pressing. It says something about the music and longevity of records."
Independent vendors were able to keep the money they made from the fair.
