Due to some nasty weather in our area on Saturday, I didn’t get a chance to hit up my usual thrift stores. Thankfully it was beautiful on Sunday so I ventured out to see if I could find anything.
My usual two thrift stores offered some small finds, nothing too exciting, but on my drive home I thought, “I’ll stop in this antique store I pass every weekend and just see if they have any records”.
It was my first time venturing into the packed little store and based on the amount of stuff in front, I assumed there wasn’t even enough room to have any records for sale. But I made my way to the back of the store and there they were, a corner full of LPs and 45s to sort through.
I began thumbing through them and was happy to see that all the albums were priced well, usually only $2 or $3 max. My first impression was that it was all junk as the albums looked a lot like the classical and southern gospel stuff that piles up in thrift stores.
And then I found, Loretta Lynn’s Fist City album and knew I’d have to search through every last album to see what else I might find.
I walked out spending $48 total, some of the LPs I found will be sold off and some I’ll keep. I will most likely keep all the ones posted below as they fill a lot of the catalog holes in my record collection.
Besides, how could I pass up this many classic female country LPs! The store owner told me she gets new records in once or twice or month so I’m adding this as a regular stop on my weekend thrifting adventures!
Note, I also bought a copy of Tanya Tucker’s Would You Lay With Me (In a Field of Stone) LP but forgot to photograph it.
