Musical Collectables Record Show 10/17/2010

Wow, it's been nearly two months flat already since I wrote in my blog! Well, anyways, I had a REALLY fun time at the Musical Collectables record show at the Capitol Banquet Centre in Mississauga, Ontario yesterday, and I came home with a lot of great finds from just 3 of over 100 vendors giving away vinyl records and CD's! What's cool is that I saw 4 copies of a Beatles single I never see in the thrift store (I bought the one in the best condition of the four), and that I got a Roxette jukebox 45 on yellow vinyl, complete with the original jukebox strip! Also, I managed to pick up a lot of great jazz records I never had in my collection before, and I (unexpectedly) found a copy of "Band on the Run" by Paul McCartney for only a single buck (can you believe it?). I am planning to go to two other shows in the very near future: one in Barrie next Sunday, and the other in Toronto on the 7th of November.

I even posted a video on my YouTube channel showing a mini-tour of the show and all the great finds I have discovered.

I really enjoyed going to the Musical Collectables show with my friends, especially my older brother! When I came back, we fought over what we wanted to play first, but, in several hours, it all settled down, and I got to play the records I wanted to play.

P.S. one of my online pen pals contacted me today and said that she has some records that she would like to give to me, and the records are in some attached photos. I replied back and placed a check mark on the records I wanted in the photos. They'll be coming to me by the end of the week! I can't believe how much my record collection has been growing in the past few days... :D
