Record Fairs: Feira de Vinil de Lisboa - 3ª edição

It's back: Lisbon's record fair inside a fair is going for its third edition, after the success of the previous ones. The 3rd Lisbon Vinyl Fair (or in Portuguese, Feira de Vinil de Lisboa) is happening between the 3rd and the 5th of May, inside the Sta. Marta Market building - right in the middle of the Ladra fair (at least on Saturday the 4th).
Between the confirmed sellers are well-established brick-and-mortar shops like Groovie Records (representing Mr. Bongo Records!), TNT, Tabatô Records, Peekaboo, Carbono Amadora, the label Wasser Bassin and Pedro Correia (from the extinct Magic Bus store), as well as several online sellers and collectors. There are also international stores represented, like Scratch Records from Hamburg or La Bomba Records from Oviedo!
Don't forget to start saving some money: you're going to need it!
