Getting the obvious out of the way...
I've always said that there's an 80's pop song for every blog post.
On Saturday, there was a music sale at the comic shop. They had a room full of albums, singles, CD's, tapes, music mags and sheet music for 25 cents each. That's a price too good to resist, so i had to go.
I don't carry a lot of records in my booths. Most of what I do have is stuff I have found or that has been given to me. I sell a few from time to time, and they do serve as a draw to get some people into the booth to check them out. There are three or four serious music vendors in our mall with booths full of records. I don't have the knowledge base to really compete with them, so I don't even try. instead, I look out for freebies and bargains. And the weird stuff that fits in with my overall booth vibe.
So I set off Saturday on a quest for the fun stuff. Here are some highlights.
How cruel is it that the pattern on your argyles will always clash with the plaid of your tartan?
I have a CD of JP II praying the Rosary set to electronic beats. He was one happening Pope.
Would you let this man repair your marriage? I think the cover would be much cooler if he was holding a roll of duct tape.
I want to draw your attention to this line on the cover:
I'm torn between searching for a Polka Toddlers album and the fear that it might have a tag line on it that says "Formerly the Polka Infants."
Speaking of show biz families.
My husband had a HUGE crush on David Cassidy when he was younger.
From Popes to Presidents. It was a well-rounded day.
We close with sweaty mice. And whatever Goofy is.
This one actually still has the booklet with it. Yay!
I got a few other things, but this is the cream of the crop. Boxed record sets--opera, classical, Christmas, and country--do sell well for me, so I scoop them up whenever I can. I also got some Christmas albums.
Tune in tomorrow.
