The King of Coasters

Made of labels cut from the center of actual vinyl records, these hi-fi home furnishings will be a hit with any music lover. The discs are sealed so moisture won't seep through to the surface. Comes in a set of six assorted labels packed in a clear, round case. Designed by Jeff Davis. Handmade in Philadelphia.

As featured in Gourmet.

Because these coasters are made from real recycled records, each set will contain a different assortment of albums.

            There make an excellent gift. I bought them for my boyfriend has a housewarming present and he loved them. There's six coasters in an order which is plenty - he let me keep one for myself. They're excellently made and the perfect size. I love them!

              This is my second set that I've bought, one for me and one as a gift. The first set has held up for a couple of years now with no issues. Super fun and a great addition to any room. Colors and record names are random, so this is not for someone that wants every last detail in the room coordinated. Unfortunately, the younger generation won't even know what these are, but a great gift for anyone else.

                  I gave this as a gift. They are really cool but the albums are from rather obscure artists so I would not buy this for someone under 50 or even 60. But it makes a cool gift for someone who grew up listening to albums

                        I got this gift for an avid record collector and liked the idea that they were created from recycled records. I was a little disappointed by the records I received and wish I could have chosen a few at least and was also mildly annoyed that a little quality control wasn't administered as one of the records has a former owner's return address stuck to it and sealed under the plastic coating.
