I awoke Saturday morning in a funk and started browsing CL for old local ads for records. I ran across two lots and make offer to purchase—the first lot I picked up on Saturday afternoon from a gentleman who’d dropped the price to $35 to move the records out of his basement. He seemed thrilled to be rid of the bunch, and for 200 45s at $35, I figured that I couldn’t loose all that much, either. Very, very pleased (he even threw in the record player for free—it plays 33s, 16s, and 8s, but, interestingly enough for the records that I bought it with, not 45s):
The same morning I contacted a farmer near Casey (off I80) who was selling a lot for $20. Ready for some weekend fun (and to loose another square foot of space in our basement) I committed to buy these, as well. It was Sunday before I was able to pick up the bunch, but it worked out well (as we were already most of the way there—for church in Earlham). The lot has yet to be sorted through, but full of promos and a few 60s albums with picture sleeves:
Details (and a few good picks from the lot) to come.
