Our Story

“The Glitter Records story is an interesting one,” shares owner Riley Fitzgerald, “It takes many twists and turns. Glitter began in 2018. And this may surprise you. It started as an online psychedelic art and music fan magazine called Cosmic.”

“As well as creating some dazzling artwork, I learned a lot about the Cosmic readers' deep connection with music. And above all else the vinyl album. And so in 2020, I decided to dive into the world of online retail.”

“Glitter’s next evolution was The Glitter & Gold. It was one part blog and another Depop. Unlike Cosmic, Glitter took a broader view of pop culture and social issues. I also learned a lot more about the ongoing vinyl revival.”

“Growing from Depop, the Glitter and Gold store expanded to Discogs and then on to eBay. Three thousand star sticker decorated packages and hand-addressed letters later came a third and final transformation. When the lease for first my office came to an end, I decided to set up shop at 6 California Lane.”

“The blogging had to take a break for now. My focus was moving away from cyberspace. It was now on real life customers and experiences."
"This leads me to an important point I want to make to you. The work I, and a lot of other very talented people, did with Cosmic and Glitter and Gold gave something meaningful to millions of people around the world. But after the isolation of the coronavirus pandemic, I really wanted to do something for people in my local community here in Brisbane."

"In November, I opened the shop’s doors. It has been a terrific experience so far. I have learned so much from the people who have dropped by to visit. And if you have not had a chance to come in already, I hope to see you soon.”
