Iwas 14 when I bought myfirst one, though it was many years earlier when I received my firstrecord. Overthe next 25 years, I proceed to buy some 15,000 morealbums of some ofthegreatest artists of all time, but do I really want to move them again?
Ifyou have ever taken awooden crate full of records from room to another, you know thesethings areheavy! But, the thing is that crate only holds abut 120records! Nowtrying toimagine moving 125 of those boxes every time you move!
You see, these boxesreally aren’t movable when you think about howmuch theyweigh. It takes me 4 truck loads of just records everytime I move. Ican payto move these records or I can hold a garage sale and sell them. Evenat anaverage of $1 each, that could get me about $15,000, but the questionis do Iwant to sell them or move them?
I’mreally thinking I want tomove them so my kids can enjoy them as I did, but at the same time,they don’tunderstand records, they think MP3s and CDs only. But, there is justsomethingabout a record that they can’t compete with.
Whatwould you do if you were in my position?
