The day after Thanksgiving is always a good day to thrift. I was out west - last time around I investigated some cool antique malls in Geneseo. This time, we headed over to nearby Princeton and a spot I found on Google maps with little other info to give.
We were not disappointed. As expected, a good portion of the vendors had records. You had to double back sometimes, it might be just a small stack tucked somewhere, and amongst the other bric-a-brac sometimes they would just blend in.
Early on, I found what would be my biggest score: a Sweet Adelines album from 1955! It is pretty beat up but its more than playable and for $1 you learn to ignore some shortcomings on the packaging. I saw some other possibilities throughout the day but nothing I took very seriously. My girlfriend grabbed some vinyl and I got some Pyrex as well as a vintage Budweiser glass which I enjoyed drinking out of that very night.
|the 7" in this blurry pic wasnt the track (its only a b-side) I hoped it was. Oh well, I got the LP a while ago|
