Jam is a shabby and quite groovy, flock wallpapered shop stuffed with comfy sofas, formica and battered old standard lamps for that lived in feel.
On the High Street in what the marketers might call Falmouth’s old quarter… truly a street with no chains but all the best shops. Is it record shop? is it a cafe? Yes it is…
Born in the spring of 2003 we have been bringing an esoteric collection of music, film and art to locals and visitors alike – not to mention exceptional coffee and some nice muffins too. One of a dying breed of old fashioned record shops (with actual records in it) Jam aims to share our finds in new and old music – we stock what we like and hope some other people may like it too (or we won’t make any money).
One of our customers called it a culture shop – sort of like the Culture Show but without Lauren Laverne popping up every five minutes. As well as some outstanding musical treasures on cd and vinyl there’s art, photography and design books and journals; contemporary fiction at great prices and a selection of independent and foreign film on dvd.
