An autumnal hello to you all!
Things are rarely at a standstill here at How Bazaar and the last couple of months have proved no exception.
We have a very loyal clientele whose main interest is vinyl records. If you haven't called by in the past couple of weeks, then we are pleased to let you know that we recently received a large and fantastic collection of vinyl. So large that it has taken over a week to inspect and price them all. So fantastic that we've built a new display unit to show them all!
There were at least 1500 vinyl records and a very eclectic collection of (mostly) rock 'n' roll. The collector was Peter Duffy (we can be certain of this as he stamped his name on many of them and often with the date he acquired them). We're led to believe he was one of the founders of 3RRR FM radio station. Clearly, his interest is the vinyl and the music, as the vinyl is mostly in very good to near mint condition, but the covers are often quite worn.
We cannot go through all the titles here, but there are very few that we have previously had. There are bootleg rarities, some Australian rarities and some artists who haven't previously come through our doors. A great collection of Bob Dylan, David Bowie and quite a lot of The Beatles, but others like Captain Beefheart, Doctor John, Donovan, The Kinks, Daddy Cool, etc. There's also some very rare compilation albums and quite a few 12" singles. The genres cover classic rock, through pop, funk, jazz and fusion, disco and folk.
If you're interested in rare vinyl, now is the time to pay a visit and it's well worth a trip from Melbourne as the good ones won't be here for very long. The prices range from $4 up, with many around the $10 - $20 and some of the rarities are a bit more. We know you will find that our prices are very competitive.
We are also very pleased to announce that we have a new Stallholder in How Bazaar. Jarrod Carney has quite a range of interesting items and they are well priced. Here's some pics of Jarrod's area.
Come in and have look at Jarrod's stall - No 6.
Finally, following our last, sad, newsletter, we were privileged to attend Michael O'Brien's funeral in Mount Gambier. A great celebration of Michael's life with a large of number of his family and friends in attendance. And without being too macabre, Mick went out in style - definitely the coolest hearse we've ever seen!
Till next time, cheers,
Peter & Andrea
