I last got 2 Jefferson Starship records (EARTH AND MODERN TIMES)

They were both together so i just got both -- 1 of them I wanted just for the song "Find your way back" and man does it sound good in analogue!!!

I also got A 'country special' record! (1972 - Collection of traditional country music)

I just got a YES record (90125) and although I have this cassette and dont like it very much! (Doesnt sound very good) THE RECORD IS AMAZING!!!!!!

I guess records are the way to go!!! (I have always known that but I have had several cassettes/records where the records sound MUCH NICER than the same album on cassette!)

I almost didnt get this record as it had alot of white streaks on it,etc...... Wasnt taken care of very well..... But I gave the record A COMPLETE CLEANING and got 99% of the white streaks out of it (Still a few light streaks (Not very visible)).....


IM GLAD I GOT IT!!!!!

My favorite thrift store closed......

They sold stuff there for nothing! It was a Salvation Army Thrift store, once I got a Broyhill dining room set....pine, table with expansion leaf, 4 chairs with upholstered seats, AND a side board in matching wood....for $200! It was advertised $250, but at checkout they dropped the price to $200, then, the guy drove it home for me! I said we would come back later for it, he said he went right by my way, and delivered it for no extra charge.......I think they put him away after awhile......loljk!

I just got the movie SILVER STREAK today

Im kinda sad though... My friend (The one I went to today) is getting rid of all the VHS tapes in the next couple weeks he has had... He was the BEST one for getting VHS in my area! (I mean there IS salvation army but they arent as reliable and dont have as many!!)

He says he is getting tired of them,they are taking over his store,etc.... (I understand,he would rather have stuff that brings in more $$$$ on the floor)


Im glad to have found him WHEN I DID!! (Early this year).. I wouldnt have 1/2 the movies I have now If not for him and for that I AM GRATEFUL FOR

Last time I went I found a brand new, corn kernel remover for an ear of corn, like I have never seen. It was from the 1950s - 70s and made from that old colored see-thorough plastic. Like brand new still in original box after all these years!

I only "collect" fine furniture from thrift stores. It is cheaper than new stuff, made in USA, real wood, and the craftsmanship is A+.

I recently found a sterling silver gravy boat and creamer jar. I thought they might be silver plated, but they are real silver. They had a makers mark on the bottom and I was able to track down what they might be worth online. Not bad for $3.99 each.
