Boxing Day Bonanza at Goodwill

On Boxing Day (December 26th) we took a trip down to Marysville, Washington to partake of the Golden Coral "All You Care to Eat" buffet.  It was amazing as always. If you have never been to a Golden Coral, and you have one within driving distance (our closest one is about 1 1/2 hour drive), you have to check it out. After lunch, we driving around checking out various malls and stores. Along the way we found two Goodwill stores where they are having a 50% everything sale, which meant that 99 cent records were now 50 cents, and 10 cent cassette tapes were now 5 cents... Yippee!

I came home with 29 LPs and 1 cassette tape, with the bulk of them being Disney albums. My favorites are:
1) Walt Disney Presents Ferede Grofe's Grand Canyon Suite
2) Walt Disney Presents Songs From All Around the World
3) Walt Disney Presents Best of Broadway
4) Walt Disney Presents The Story of Treasure Island
5) Bedknobs and Broomsticks
6) Walt Disney Presents Rudyard Kilpling's Just So Stories (Narrated by Sterling Holloway)
7) Walt Disney's Story and Songs from Pinocchio (Narrated by Jiminy Cricket)
8) Walt Disney Presents the Stories of Hans Christian Anderson
9) Walt Disney Presents Acting Out The ABCs.

Although a few of them are in rough condition, they all had the original LPs inside and once I put them into shinny new record sleeves, they all looked great, and are ready to be added to my collection. Total cost for these 9 LPs was $4.50.

If you would like to check out the other non Disney albums I picked up, check them out over at Ronn's Big Pile of Stuff.

Hi Ronn-
I've been looking for that "Songs From All Around the World" record. If you'd be interested in selling it, I'd be very interested. I live in Toronto.
