Digging in a box of Charity Shop records:
Here we go again – This morning was a pleasant bright one, cloud free, no wind and there was a certain late Autumn chill in the air. I decided to combine a brisk walk to Chester-le-Street (roughly four miles away) with a hunt in their charity shops for records.
While I was in town I also paid a visit to Sound And Vision but I’ll talk about that in another post. For now, I’ll go through my finds today and how much they cost me.
My search proved to be quite a good one, three of the five charity shops had something worth my while and at ridiculously low prices. There is not much of a risk when buying cheap records from these places anyway because, after all, my donation is going to a charity.
Oh, and I decided that it was such a nice day that I’d also walk the four miles back home. So, a round trip on foot amounting to a minimum of eight miles. Great day for records and exercise.
Back home I checked the condition of the records and cleaned them using my Spin-Clean Record Washer and I’m happy to report that everything is in at least EX condition. Some of the sleeves are a bit tatty but I can live with that.
