Victrola

Over the years our family has owned a couple of vintage Victrolas. This one is too large to fit comfortably in any of our homes, so Amy had it brought over to Village Craftsmen.


















Manufactured by the Victor Talking Machine Company (Camden, N.J.) in 1916, the Victrola works well. On your next visit to Village Craftsmen, take a look at this vintage machine. You can even choose a record (we have dozens), place it on the turntable, rotate the crank, and lower the needle. Many of the records are a bit scratchy, but they will give you an idea of what your grandparents and great grandparents listened to more than a century ago.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a history of Village Craftsmen (1970 - the Present). You can read the Newsletter here: https://www.villagecraftsmen.com/history-village-craftsmen-ocracoke-island/.
