I could go on and on about Park Ave CDs. Located in Audubon Park in Orlando, Florida, this place is the epitome of cool. Do not let the name fool you though, this store is so much more than music.
While shoppers will indeed find row after row of both old and new music, that's not what keeps me coming back. If you know me in real life, you know that I am a book enthusiast. I read every chance I get, and I am always looking for my next quirky read. This store carries quite an impressive collection of books, from authors like Chuck Palahniuk and Kurt Vonnegut. They even have an online bookstore for those incredibly hard to find titles!
In addition to beautiful music and hard to find books, Park Ave CDs has rows of fun gifts for that special someone in your life. Sassy oven mitts? They have them. Socks with Dad jokes printed on them? More options than I can count. One of my favorite gifts I've purchased here is a coffee mug with John Lennon and Yoko Ono on it. It's still a favorite to this day!
Masks are required inside, regardless of vaccination status due to the ongoing pandemic. There is also hand sanitizer placed right up front for you to use upon arrival. Park Ave CDs is doing everything they can to keep employees and guests safe during this time.
I absolutely recommend this sweet shop for your gift giving needs. There is truly something for everyone here. Park Ave CDs just celebrated it's 37th birthday. That speaks volumes about the way our community loves this place. Happy shopping!
