The van for a West Seattle record store, Easy Street Records, was stolen over the weekend, and the store has been posting all over social media to try and get it back.

The van was given to them by singer-songwriter and Seattle-native Brandi Carlile: it was the first thing she bought when she first signed with Columbia records in 2004.

East Street Records say people should be looking out for a black 2005 Chevy Express passenger van, last seen near Alki Beach Saturday on Aug. 13.

Distinguishing features of the vehicle include a Brandi Carlile sticker in the back window and two Easy Street stickers on the driver’s side.
