Collecting Vinyl Records : Collecting Vinyl Records: What You Need To Know

Expert Villagers, I’m really glad we went
over this vinyl stuff. It’s really cool stuff and it brings back a lot of memories for all
of us. And don’t forget Jan, that’s your most important memory (I’m Jan). I wanted to remind
you that I am an antique appraiser and I also have a large antique mall in Pomona called
Antique Avenue on Second Street. Second street in Pomona is a fabulous place to visit if
you happen to be in southern California because there are probably about twenty antique malls
there. And at these antique malls, you’ll be able to find memories for all ages. And
remember, the ages with the memories that have the most money are the ages of the collectibles
that you want to buy. So right now, baby-boomers start collecting some of these albums we’ve
talked about; Joe Cocker and The Beatles. Elvis is getting a little “passe.” I hate
to say that, but the Beatles, Joe Cocker, Elvis if they are in certain pressings that
are very valuable (some are). But in all likelihood, when you come and find these records, they
are not going to be the valuable records. Not to say they are not out there, so you
need to keep looking. But just because it’s an Elvis or a Beatles, doesn’t mean it’s worth
a lot. Happy vinyl hunting to you!
