Profile

Holy Cow Records is a used record store in Seattle's Pike Place Market. We have been continuously operating for 25 years. We also sell online.
Online inventory is housed outside of the retail store. We can transfer records to the store for purchase by request.


Current project: working our way through a vast 7 inch collection. Adding inventory for sale and contributing to db improvements when we can.
