A New Spin on Old Vinyl

These vintage record bookends may just be the hottest vinyl to hit the shelves since Elvis. Music-loving artist Jeff Davis makes them by hand, using two, 7" 45rpm records, bonded to a thick inner core and supported by a steel tongue that will keep your books from rocking and rolling right off the shelf. The core material, known as Trupan, is an environmentally friendly composite board made from recycled waste wood. Records used will vary; special requests are not available. Handmade in Philadelphia.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

        I bought these amazing bookends for my fiancé, who is an audio engineer and so is really into music, and he absolutely loved them! He thought the design was amazing and innovative, and he also said that his co-workers would all be crazy excited about these. So awesome! Highly recommend these as a gift, especially for a music-lover!

                Purchased bookends for sister and brother in law. Fits in perfectly with their decor and make-it-yourself ethos. They seemed to like them a lot so I was pleased.

                    My husband is a music and book lover. We have a room dedicated to both of these collections. This was a perfect gift for him, he loved it! The service and delivery was prompt with no problems.
                    It would be much better for music enthusiasts to be able to pick their own genre for the records used in construction.

                      A bit spendy for one set. But American HANDMADE and recycled is great.

                      I can never seem to own enough books. My collection is so large that, instead of cramming them all into one room or one area, I have begun distributing them all over my house. I'm forever on the lookout for unique and eye-catching bookends. These I would buy.

                      Very nice! First I've always been into the "vintage" style and the fact that it is recycled I love it! I could see how the price could be a bit high... but I do really like this. =)

                      A bit overpriced, but I love the idea of this being recycled and repurposed.
