For a while I was running across almost NM 45's of the Everly Bros. and Buddy Holly.

Now, it seems people are donating 45 soul collections.

At thrifts? Mostly TUC, as usual.

At yardsales? The usual finds, predominately TUC, sometimes get lucky. Here's 125 Hard Rock & Metal LPs I picked up for $40 this past weekend.

Out here in Colorado Springs, there seems to be an inordinate amount of Square Dance records.
Tons of 'em. Guess not many people square dance anymore.

Gobs of old religious music around here, routinely see labels like Myrrh, Marantha, Word, Canaan, Azlan - these guys really must've been cranking out the records back in the day.

That's only happened three times in the past two months. Otherwise, it's been TUC.

Now that is a good trend. I would flip that to a local shop laser fast.

The only trend is the local GW's are completely out of their minds. Their prices are nut's. I can still get some records, but they pick through Beatles, Elvis, Some Rock, and non-audio stuff is insanely priced.
They are even trying to price up common Beatles CD's.
But...... whackies pay it. And then laughingly when they buy a fake watch, purse, and so on, that the store knows is fake, and charge an obscene price, they try at times to get their money back.
Guy paid $850 two pairs of B&W's 601 S3's, and S2's. I know these aren't $100 speakers new, (They were around $600 a pair new) but they were unboxed, with no papers or anything. And they were in nice shape. Some light wear.
One dope bought a nothing special 50's Hamilton watch, not gold, for $100, and also a fake, yeah fake, and the store new it was fake Cartier Quartz Watch for $250, and then tried to get his money back. And this guy is a flipper?
So I guess that's the trends I encounter. GW are crooks. And a bunch of goofies aid, and abet them.
