Mojo Books and Records - Tampa Florida Restaurant - HappyCowA great record store. They do sell books and other stuff but I was impressed with the quality and quantity of the records. Four explained that they do not take any vinyl in unless it is near perfect and the rare Beatles records I found Really enjoyed browsing the sections at Mojo. Didn't get to chat with the staff which is disappointing when visiting a record shop in Checked out the book store ended up ordering a Thai tea. The book store looked cozy and chilled.
Mojo Books & Records Cafe, Tampa
Near By. The only independent book and record store in Tampa! Vinyl records, used books, memorabilia and more! Skip the chains, MOJO is far more affordable and offers a true experience! Mojo Books and Records is by far my favorite store in Tampa. I love collecting vintage records and checking out their extensive book collection.

Home Masthead. Since , this independent business has provided music and book lovers alike the opportunity to buy, sell, and trade books, games, CDs, DVDs, and vinyl records. The market was where she met her business partner, Dan Drummond, who was also involved in collectable record shows. Together, they began their search for a property near the University. In the old location, Cade admitted that there were too many space constraints. I had never written a check that big in my life. She had to depend on her regulars to spread the word.
The eclectic University Area store is set to celebrate its 10th anniversary on Saturday, April 22 at its E. Fowler Ave. The event coincides with the 10th anniversary of Record Store Day, which Mojo will celebrate at the same time. Opening a book and record store seemed to be the natural progression for Melanie Cade and Dan Drummond. While Drummond started in the business by selling books and records at local markets and collectors' shows, Cade began selling books online in the early s. Because the two owners already worked in the industry, they had a sizable starting inventory and didn't have to rely on using their personal collections.
Students can stop by Mojo Books and Records to pick up vinyl records, books or a handcrafted cup of coffee. While many people, if not everyone, currently have both their music and books loaded onto their phones, or some other device, there is still a community of people who believe a book is best read on a page and for the ultimate listening experience for any song, one needs pressed vinyl and a record player. Melanie Cade, co-owner of the store, said that she met her fellow co-owner and significant other, Dan Drummond, in when they both attended USF. Drummond sold books at Bull Market for many years, but stopped in the mids to transition to selling them online. He and Cade spoke about opening a brick-and-mortar store for a while, and the timing felt right when Cade finished her Masters degree in business administration.
