we have completely exploded with LP's tripled in the last 2 weeks. my partners have been on a tear for sure...it's almost addicting...everything that is coming in is cleaned, checked over for condition, researched by catalog# and label against a history of sold going back to 2003 and some back to 1997. the price is evaluated by this process for every single LP coming in. it's a big process, well worth it, and i think the folks appreciate knowing they are getting something valuable and in great shape. yes, i could chuck them all in a box and throw a $$ amount to get rid of them. there are several Master press LP's in the shop...some rare little gems and i'm having trouble wanting to let them go up for sale...LOL! it's actually interesting (to me anyway) to find out the history/pedigree of each album.
we are going to open the invite to bring in your well cared for collection to be shared with the community. looking for blues, jazz, and 90's + rock. i don't think i want to do cd's...at least not now. keeping for the 'purists' as one of our locals has said.
my attention is being directed to the back room. making this an extremely interesting part of the store...changes in the coming weeks. the upstairs loft is still available for rent, but i have been plotting something very special...
'SPANKY'S After Dark' on Friday nights til 9-9:30ish
complimentary coffee and dessert being served. til the mountain closes for the bears...
appreciate all the opinions...good and bad (sometimes it keeps me up in the middle of the night)...it's all good. helps me to want to do better for everyone. a big ol' THANKS to the WF Locals for supporting the shop and wanting to make it their own!...on that note...good night...SPANKY!
