Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton

My family is considering a move, but do I sell or do I hold?

I was 14 when I bought my first one, though it was many years earlier when I received my first record. Over the next 25 years, I proceed to buy some 15,000 more albums of some of the greatest artists of all time, but do I really want to move them again?

If you have ever taken a wooden crate full of records from room to another, you know these things are heavy! But, the thing is that crate only holds abut 120 records! Now trying to imagine moving 125 of those boxes every time you move!

You see, these boxes really aren’t movable when you think about how much they weigh. It takes me 4 truck loads of just records every time I move. I can pay to move these records or I can hold a garage sale and sell them. Even at an average of $1 each, that could get me about $15,000, but the question is do I want to sell them or move them?

I’m really thinking I want to move them so my kids can enjoy them as I did, but at the same time, they don’t understand records, they think MP3s and CDs only. But, there is just something about a record that they can’t compete with.

What would you do if you were in my position?
