Luxury collector’s shop opens in downtown Walkisha

WAUKESHA — A new luxury goods store opened in downtown Waukesha in January Music nostalgia etc...

The store on 321 Main Street sells vinyl, vinyl, vintage video game / console video game soundtracks.

“It’s a vinyl and video game intended to regain your childhood soul,” said owner Stephen Howitz.

Howitz turned from a lawyer to a shopkeeper. He said this was his shot of living his dream.

“They always say what would you do if you had a million dollars? What would you do if you won the lottery? That’s what I do.”

He sells limited edition video game soundtracks such as the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 64 soundtrack, Doom, Pokemon, and Fallout 3. If you don’t necessarily know what they are, it’s okay. They are a very popular video game. You may not expect it, but these sell fast.

“Yesterday I had three Zelda records and I posted them around 11:00 by 11:30, but they’re gone.”

He also sells regular records such as The Doobie Brothers, The Beatles and Katy Perry. Most striking about all of that is that almost every record in the store comes from his own personal collection. He said he has about 4,000 records.

He doesn’t just sell vinyl. He has a lot of vintage video games. He has Nintendo 64 games and console columns and columns. The same is true for Sega Genesis games.

Opening a business during a pandemic is not easy, and concerns about the future are clear. But according to Howitz, the last decade has been spectacular. The world can change in an instant.

“In addition, the coronavirus has taught me that if I do it now, I’m not going to do it.”

He is open Tuesday to Saturday from 12 pm to 7 pm and Sunday from 12 pm to 5 pm.
