In Search of Vinyl




















Traveling about has given us the best opportunity for record hunting. We both dig the sound of a record on a turntable.  The hunt is fun although I must admit it can be disappointing finding the album of your dreams in a VG+ cover only to find the record itself completely wrecked.

The new and used record stores are neatly organized but don't always deliver.























































We rarely pass up a flea market if we can help it and lately they have been just like the ends of a rainbows. Antique stores have surprised us with rare finds in mint condition. Even sealed vinyl has been found among Eastlake and atomic age kitchen decor.



















But a scene like the one below makes you want to pull your hair out! How do you begin to sort through a mess like this when your mind is jumbled up with lists of what you think you might find if you dig hard enough and you are drooling over the amount of vinyl in front of you. Where to begin?

As much as I disliked Indiana and as many weird encounters we both had there, I have to say I've never been more impressed with hidden pockets of records at antique stores. You will never find records like that in Texas. It was thrilling and for once paid off. Let's hope other middle america states hold the same, Ohio, Illinois, and maybe Baltimore.

Hey, is that a squash blossom necklace I spy? Amazing.

Missa, it is a vintage mid-60's piece from the Royston mine. My most valued possession next to my Zuni Effie ring.
