Online Auction Nets More Than I Bargained For
It's no secret that I love old stuff! I love odd stuff, antiques, old advertising pieces and yes, vintage vinyl records.
In a recent online auction, I bid on a large quantity of vinyl records that included 45's, 33 1/3's and 78's. It also had some VHS tapes as well. What I didn't realize when I placed my bid was the actual quantity of all pieces involved. I was subsequently notified that I had won the auction and to my surprise at pick up, I felt like sheriff Brody in Jaws. In my case, I didn't need "a bigger boat" but I would need a bigger vehicle to haul it!
With my amazing wife Sara Marie in tow, we loaded over 1,000 vinyl albums and 45's into the SUV. Our second trip, we loaded up a good portion of the over 800 VHS tapes that came with it. Still more remain and I have yet to retrieve them. Add in a box of instructional DVD's, 8 track tapes and a couple of reel to reel tapes, and you have it all!
Needless to say, I will probably have several booths at the upcoming Mid Michigan Yard Sale just to help clear some room in my pole barn that was already full with other old stuff!
