Lo-Fi Books, Records, and Coffee is a quaint spot on historic High Street in Burlington featuring delicious locally roasted coffees, and vintage books, vinyls, and other arts related paraphernalia.
Creator and owner of Lo-Fi, Brad Vasquez, has had the store since October of 2017, and has been living in the area for 20 years. Through Brad’s love of collectible items and music, and originally hailing from San Francisco, he has created a vintage and unique spot for customers of all ages to enjoy.
“I’ve been coming to Burlington for a long time,” Brad said. “I’ve worked in other people’s book and record stores for a really long time for most of my life, and always thought about it.”
Brad stocks the store with some of his own personal pieces, takes donations from community members and organizations, and goes to thrift stores throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region to find the perfect items his customers will love.
“Vinyl is pretty hip,” Brad said. “I’ve found that a lot of our customers like Classic Rock and
1980s pop and punk.”
Alongside all of the great stuff the store has to offer, Brad also makes a mean cup of coffee.
Customers can enjoy hot coffee, cold brew, pour-overs, various teas, and even hot chocolate, all from Elixr Coffee Roasters in Fishtown.
