With some of my birthday money, I bought a record player. It’s also a cassette, CD, MP3 player and radio, but what I really wanted was the record player! I’ve been wanting one for years because I have a few records from my childhood that I would love for the kids to love too. I recently bought one from a friend’s garage sale, but it didn’t work. So, when I saw this one in the Target ad at an awesome sale price, I got super excited. Casey scoffed. He did not see the appeal. UNTIL…. today we were at Unique Thrift because we had some time to kill was Natalie was in ballet and he happened upon the 99 cent vinyl record shelf. Annnnnd went nuts. We got a bunch of records, Christmas, classical (Casey is crazy about classical music) and kids. Even some Scott Joplin and some Raffi Christmas! Awesome old-school stuff that yes, we could probably get on iTunes, but that are so much cooler on a record player!
I’m so happy, we’ve been listening to them all afternoon. So far, “The SwingleBells” are my favorite (okay, I just looked that up on Amazon to link it and it’s $125)! What a find. And Casey conceded and told me “good call on the record player”.
