It's been a hot minute since Ragged Records and Trash Can Annie were open in downtown Davenport.  Now you can come celebrate at their Grand Opening, July 17, 2021.  They'll open in the old Abernathy's spot at 311 E 2nd Street.

The two stores’ events include Record Store Day (RSD), “Punks in Peoria” book signing, and a Best Dressed contest (the prize is a $200 gift certificate).

From the Ragged Records Facebook Page:

RAGGED RECORDS:
RECORD STORE DAY: Both RSD orders will be combined at the new location. That means twice the titles, so make sure to get in line early. The Rock Island location will be closed that day so the whole team can be at the Grand Opening.

“PUNKS IN PEORIA” BOOK SIGNING: Author Jonathan Wright will be on hand from 9am until Noon, signing copies of his new book, “Punks In Peoria: Making A Scene in the American Heartland” (which includes interviews with Ragged Records owner, Bob Herington!).
TRASH CAN ANNIE:
BEST DRESSED CONTEST: Purchase an item from Trash Can Annie, take a selfie with that item in the TCA Social Media Spot, post the photo and tag @trashcanannie78 #trashcanannie #TCAbestdressedcontest on Facebook and Instagram. The person with the most likes wins a $200 gift certificate. Showcase your coolest look and pose with confidence! Describe what you’re wearing and why you think your look is a stand-out. (Note: this is a fashion - not costume - contest.)
ALL NEW PIECES: All pieces are newly-pulled and one-of a-kind, meaning you will be the first to see them! Killer vintage has a new home. So get there early – your style is waiting!

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
