For 8 years I lived without a record player.It has been a long,sad 8 years.Didn't stop me from collecting records though!Yesterday I was out thrifting with the family.I found some vintage maternity and a 40's dress that I put in the shop.A set of 4 tea cups and dinner plates in Canonsburg "Florence" pattern for myself and then....and then this hi-fi!It was marked $8.00!I did a "say what" when I saw the sign,but no really $8.00!
Now its not in perfect condition.When I bought it that gentleman that owns the store told me the right speaker doesn't work and there were a few cosmetic issues.Luckily my husband when he picked it up today did some of his magical man knowledge stuff and the right speaker is working just fine and dandy.As far as the cosmetic...well,you know when your mother use to tell you to use a coaster?Cause THIS is what happens when you don't use a coaster people!
Nothing a hot date with a sander and a new finish won't cure.I just imagine this thing has seen a lot of shin digs with intoxicated party goers that were too concerned with a good time over coasters.
So what after 8 years of not listening to records would I put on first?Some Sinatra?Death rock?My massive country and honky tonk collection?Exotica?The possibilities are just endless.But I opted for something hubs and I could both enjoy so Black Flag it was!
I was starting to get to the point that I thought I'd never be able to find an affordable record player again,it only took 8 years but for $8.00 I can't complain.
