Joint Custody has been around for 10 years, and in that time it’s earned a strong following among D.C.’s audiophiles. That’s largely thanks to the passionate staff, who know just about everything there is to know about their ever-changing inventory. They’re also the ones who score vintage records and cassettes you can’t find anywhere else in the city—maybe anywhere else, period.
Don’t be surprised if you stumble upon some early demos and first edition records from your favorite bands when you come into Joint Custody. Regulars say the stuff that’s hanging on the walls is typically the most impressive, so make sure you take a close look if you’re an avid music buff. Shopping for some new threads instead? Joint Custody can help you with that, too. The store specializes in vintage band tees, unsurprisingly, but also sells an impressive array of vintage baseball hats. You can always stop in at the store to browse, but a portion of its inventory is also available online for shipping or in-store pickup. And you never know exactly what you’ll discover!
