There’s nothing like listening to the crackle of an old vinyl record while hanging around the house. Alexander is a record connoisseur of sorts, so I get to enjoy listening to his collection and have started a little one of my own. While we often buy them in record stores & online, we almost always start our search in thrift stores & yard sales. Even though we love sifting through dusty bins, it’s often difficult to find quality records amongst the Barbra Streisands and Jesus Christ Super Stars.
However, every once & a while, we seem to get lucky. Here are a few of Alexander & I’s favorite thifted vinyls:
- Fats Waller- “Compilation”
- Ella Fitzgerald- “Ella in Hollywood”
- The Beatles- “1967-1970”
- James Taylor- “One Man Dog”
- Beach Boys- “Summer Fun”
- Bob Dylan- “Greatest Hits”
It’s so fun to look them up online and see that some of your finds are actually worth some money. I love that vinyl is coming back; It seems that most of our friends have a little collection these days.
What are you favorite records and where do you usually find them?
