GUEST,seth in Olympia BS: Thrift store, yard sale & dumpster finds (79* d) RE: BS: Thrift store, yard sale & dumpster finds 15 Dec 09

The local Goodwill has always been a great fishing hole for music and record collectors, not quite so much as ten years ago, when people were dumping entire lifetime collections to replace with CD's. Over the years, I have all the records I can store or possibly want, but still, every once in a while, I just have a peek in that section of the store-when what to my wondering eyes should appear-someone had donated their classical music vinyl collection, maybe 300+ albums
all pristine, all pricey labels, a lot of European stuff that I was not familiar with. Going out @$1.00 each.
What to do? What to do? The thing I would have done in the past would be to overdraw my bank account, hope my kids could fend for themselves
ths holiday season... but this time I only bought one, a recording by Itzak Perlman, EMI, digital,Concertos by Korngold and Conus ( I don't know who these composers are)still sealed in shrink wrap.
Regular retail box stores never give me this kind of pleasure before I even get the product home
