Love Garden was alive with busy shoppers on Saturday, as some of music’s biggest fans in the community descended upon the downtown building for Record Store Day. Confused onlookers ogled the line that ran out the store for most of the morning, while hands flew threw the stacks and flipped through dozens of records inside.

Some were apprehensive about participating in the nation-wide event, but those feelings soon gave way to indulgence thanks to the upbeat yet nonchalant atmosphere provided by your friendly neighborhood record store employees.
