Discogs’ Collectors’ Tales #006: Garage Sale Grab Bag By Jaytoncray

While I was out doing my door to door rounds for work I saw a Garage Sale sign. It was just down the block from where I was so I figured "why not". Looking around I asked the lady if she maybe had any records to sell. "Let me see, I have a box here that I think has some records in it." She starts trying to move a box that obviously looked very full of something. I wasn't going to get too excited because I ahve been burned in the past with high expectations. I helper her out with the box and peeked inside. The very first LP that I see is Wings - Venus and Mards, not bad to start. I start digging and soon I am getting very excited. Record after records is a keeper...Stones, Floyd, Hendrix, Doors, Zepp, Zappa, Yes, King Crimson, Aerosmith...hell there was even an Andy Williams Christmas album! 200lps in all and they are all in amazing shape. I turn to ask her what she wants for the box. $20 would be fine. I almost sprained my wrist getting to my wallet.

    $20 sounds about right for a stack of bargain bin classic rock.

    I have high hopes for this every time…and it does happen once in a blue moon. But when it does…. (last time I had the guts to say “how about these 20 records for $15″…and they said “Sure”. Such a cheapskate!)
