Best Bargains

I'm a bit of a vinyl nut and over the last year or two have built up quite a tasty collection of classic albums. I was at home this weekend and whilst busy doing various planning stuff for the wedding, I popped into a local charity shop that often has a couple of crates of vinyl LPs.

I wasn't having much joy and was about to leave when I spotted a tatty looking black inner sleeve (no outer cover). On closer inspection it was a cult classic indie album Hex, by an excellent band called Bark Psychosis. They're not particularly famous, but I knew that Hex was an album that has gone on to influence quite a lot of bands that I'm into.

So I bought it for 50p, and have just got in and had a quick search online to find out that my 50p purchase could be worth up to £176! That how much a good quality version is being sold for currently!

Mine won't be anywhere near that kind of price due to its condition, and it's a great record so I won't be selling, however it was a gem of a find and goes to show that even if you're just curious, you may well find an absolute bargain when you least expect to!

Has anyone else got a good "bargain buy" story?
