Record Collection

I mentioned that I have gotten quite a few AWESOME records lately during my yard sale adventures.  The hope we have is to have all the basic old rock and great party music, and then build with newer artists.  The last garage sale I went to had like five boxes of albums and they were only 10 for $3.00.  There were so many albums that I could barely look through them, not to mention having the kids with me.  I did get like 12 albums, then went back a couple days later when everything was free.  I got 5 more records.  This is where I keep the little vintage squares.
I also got a fabulous deal on an air conditioner for the porch.  The windows out there can't hold a standard air conditioning unit, we needed a portable one.  My theory in garage sale world is one you have probably heard before, "if you think it, it will come."  I literally found this my first weekend out and about.  It was $46.00.  It works awesome, and has a retail value of $329.00.  The people had moved, and the windows they had wouldn't work with this anymore.  Our windows didn't really work with the unit either, but we had a piece of plexiglass cut to size and put her in.
The other cool item I got, that probably isn't exciting to you all is a rustic bowl for nutcrackers.  It was .50 cents.  My grandmother always had one, and it just seems super vintage to me.  It will be out at Christmas.  The strange thing is I am allergic to nuts, but still had to have it. I know I need some nut crackers. 
The next thing I want to find is a vintage glass and brass serving/bar cart.  I just have to think I will find it and I will.  Let us see how long it takes for me to get this piece.  It is a must for me right now.  I want one similar to this.  Love it.... Fingers crossed.

  1. Hey,
    I've been looking for a new record player, and I was wondering if you could tell me what kind you have, and how it works for you? Pros/Cons?
    Thanks for any input...
