    Record shopping at thrift stores?

    I've maybe bought six or seven records from Goodwill, mostly classical symphonies that I like and one or two Chuck Mangione albums. Once time I did find a factory sealed copy of an old Christian a-capella Xmas album that I loved in my childhood, that was an awesome nostalgia score but nothing remarkable in terms of "valuable" records. I figure most of my thrifted albums are gonna be more for the nostalgia than the sale anyway. That's just how it is.
  2. a few that I found while browsing just now: Crystal Castles: Crystal Castles (I) - $11.14 (OOS) Crystal Castles: Crystal Castles (II) - $9.68 Portugal. The Man: Evil Friends (180g) - $11.24 The Cars: Greatest Hits - $11.33 Boards of Canada: Twoism - $11.21 Janelle Monaé: The Archandroid - $12.50 Sylvan Esso: Sylvan Esso - $12.96 Slava: Raw Solutions (2xLP from a cool Russian electronic producer) - $8.35
  3. Pssssst don't tell anyone but
  4. That would be an unfortunate Pack And Ship order. Online orders come from actual stores as well as distro centers, and most stores know how to pack a record because every store has LP mailers in the back, but sometimes you get a new associate who's tasked to do Pack And Ship in the morning and doesn't know what they're doing and can't pack something right to save their life. It's annoying af honestly.
  5. That Camila record keeps getting pushed back for some reason, so the Dua Lipa probably got shipped from a store rather than a distribution center since the stores already have Dua in stock.
  6. You made the right choice. It's so good.
  7. I only found one copy! Otherwise I would've snatched them all up for anyone who wanted one.
  8. idk if all stores do this, but since I'm my store's resident vinyl guy, I have our sale records marked on the front cover with huge stickers that say how much they are, and they're right next to all of the full price albums. Most of the other UOs I've been to either have them mixed in with full price stuff (which is dumb as hell), or they'll have them in a box or crate off in the sale section. Better than the first way, but they can still get thrashed a bit by rabid sale shoppers. I'm biased but I like my method the best, lol
  9. Just go to Lenox if you can, tbh. The other stores had some sale vinyl, but Lenox had the best selection. I grabbed Thirty Seconds to Mars - A Beautiful Lie and the orchestral recording of the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time OST for $12.50 total (plus a shirt, a phone case, and a pair of Vans at one of the other stores), so it was a pretty good sale on sale for me.
  10. Turns out it's 40% off sale in-store and 40% off home sale online, so if you want records you'll have to find a brick-and-mortar UO.
  11. 40% off on sale items starts tomorrow and goes through the weekend! Check for them rekkids, y'all. (you'll have a much better chance at finding sale records in-store, since the online sale selection is pretty dismal atm) I'm going to all four ATL stores on Friday, mostly for the clothes, but I'm not gonna say no to a few new albums if I find some good ones.
  12. You say that as if those Gildan shirts you use for your band tees aren't sweatshop-related either.
  13. Not yet, at least at my store and online. Vinyl doesn't get marked down on a regular basis since it's a pretty steady seller for most of the company, at least as far as I can tell, so your best bet is probably to wait for a good percentage-off sale. That said, it's currently like $6 cheaper than Amazon, so...y'know.
  14. We just put a few copies of that Børns album out on the floor at my store today. If you have a UO close by, it might be worth calling and checking the store's stock, because a lot of times the online stock will be gone but the store might still have a copy or two.
