This place is more than just a music or book store, it is an experience! Protean Book and Records is the ideal store for anyone who is looking for a vast selection of exceptionally reasonably priced and used books, movies, and records. The store also features an eclectic array of unique items and pop culture memorabilia. This store is a must for anyone searching for a one-of-a-kind book, hard-to-find vinyl, or even a birthday gift. The owners are extremely friendly and sweet so they are more than willing to assist their customers in any way they can.

I very much enjoyed visiting this store and checking out all the books and records, as well as the little museum of weird items in the back of the store, Dr. Gloom’s Crypt of Curiosities, which features mummified and taxidermized creatures. Most of the walls are lined with books and all the records take up room on the floor. Running along the top of the bookcases are little Knick knacks and collectibles. Featured in a display case at the counter are vintage videos, and there is even a little section of the store which sells items for only $2. All the items are highly organized and checking out all of the quirky items and toys is like a blast from the past. Make sure to check out this hidden gem next time you find yourself in Federal Hill!
