The third incarnation of Green Eggs and Jam has appeared in Morganton. Owner Stacy Peek opened a record shop by that name in Asheville in 1994. After selling it when he took a break to spend more time with his family—the store would be rechristened Static Age and is still in operation—he moved to Boone and opened a shop there, but when he moved again, he sold that store. Green Eggs and Jam originally opened in Asheville before the town had its current reputation as a happening scene. It was in the days before internet, and he carried punk, metal, underground, and similar hard-to-find music on vinyl. In 2017, while the majority of consumers get their music in digital form, Green Eggs and Jam persists as a solid source for vinyl, Peek commanding an inventory of over 10,000 records. Other items offered at the store include turntables, vintage clothing, VHS and DVD recordings, “weird books,” and “interesting oddities.” When the dust clears, Peek hopes to host local musicians—especially those too young to play bars—for live music on a small stage in the store.
