As a youngster Mick was a teddy boy and requented his local record store for any new rock and roll. he was about 14 when cast iron arm peanuts wilson came out and he loved it and brought it ( now one of the rare ones valued around £500 ) but after meeting Gloria he swapped it for a beatles record i wanna hold your hand (value around £3 ) to give to his soon to become wife and my mother ah young love .
In the 80's and early 90's Mick owned a shop in Tamworth called Rebel Records and only left when the building was sold
hi there, i grew up loving vinyl, my father used to take me to junk shops as they were then loving called to hunt for records from a young age, it would always be a treat if i found a Elvis record,my taste in music quickly evolved spreading to a wider spetrum.i started to collect gerry anderson records which then grew into gerry anderson toys from which my love of vintage toys grew. After bringing up my Children i moved into Cannock Market and opened up my own Stall calling it Rebel Records and toys.I had a lot of imput and advice from Mick and value it greatly
Opened in 2013 it was a natural expansion for me and now it too has a great customer base with serveral Regulars with a record fair being held in Bilston now to compliment my stall.everyone who knows me states i need a bigger stall mayb in the future watch this space
I opened a stall at cannock market in 2011 i quickly grew a great customer Base having serveral Regulars most of whom have become good friends.I started off with a few toys but over the years have grew and i expanded to two stalls selling a lot more toys and comics. Records will always be a big part of me and with the recent revival of vinyl i am going from strenghth to strength selling vinyl,cd's, toys, comics, collectables so much so in july 2015 i moved to the shop which is growing constantly
