Just wanted to drop a quick post to show you all the sweet audio candy I’ve scored this past month. (This is just the compact discs!) This entire stack of goodness ran me under $6 total, or about .75 each! You can’t find this stuff any cheaper unless you’re stealing them.
From the top left to bottom right:
– Har Mar Superstar – “Insound Tour Support” EP
– The Aggrolites – “Reggae Hit L.A.”
– Soviettes / Valentines – “Split EP”
– Trans Am – “Red Line”
– New Order – “Get Ready”
– Pavement – “Slanted & Enchanted” (Double disc w/ artwork)
– Peter Bjorn & John – “Writer’s Block”

Now that summer has loosened it’s sweaty, sticky grip, I gassed up the Volvo and I went to the thrift stores. It felt good hitting the old spots and found some rad stuff too.
This time around I brought along my lovely girlfriend who has a 2 year old of her own. Her best friend just had a brand new-new baby. So she dropped just under $10 to get that entire stack of adorable little kiddie threads and something called a “Boppy” (shown in the pic) for her friend. That big stack of books are for her own daughter, the entire stack was less than $5 total. Some new Babar, some old Babar. Some classics for sure. I loved me some Babar as a kid. We went on a Tuesday (the best day to go thrifting.) I get asked that all the time so let me repeat for posterity:
THE BEST DAYS TO GO THRIFT STORE SHOPPING ARE TUESDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS. It’s just a little too much to explain in-depth right now. But the topic warrants an entire post to itself, I promise you one on the topic real soon.
Some other finds are that real camouflage army jacket top ($1.99). It fits great and pairs with my last post’s camo outfit. Now I have the full creepy outfit should I ever want to become a recluse in rural Montana and hoard guns and take up a subscription to Guns & Ammo magazine. It’s only a matter of time, people. I found another vintage Lacoste shirt that was my size. I’ll probably sell it or keep it around for my occasional golf outings. For myself I scored another majestic and kitschy “Paint by Numbers” painting that looks great in my new office.
FOR THE HOMIES I scored a couple of Glasbake mugs for Mr. Kiekhafer and his infamous Glasbake mug collection. Also, picked up some tall Dansk candles. You may remember these from one of my very first posts here. They fit into those holders all fancy schmancy. Speaking of Dutch stuff, I grabbed two vintage books. One is an old school book on Minnesota’s old team the North Stars. The other is some hand-made Dutch book about a famous hotel (I think?) It’s signed on the inside and has some pretty great b+w photos in it. If anyone knows anything about it please email me!
DON’T THINK I DI-IN’T score some media. I always do. A couple CD’s including an older Trans Am disc and some limited Har Mar Superstar EP for $2 each. A Stephen Stills LP, Sade LP (don’t judge me!) and a seemingly rare Van Halen promo LP pressing from 1982. Each LP was $1.
