In the past I’ve been critical of thrift stores using this kind of record shelving, but I have to give kudos to Find for their latest reorganization. Someone went to a lot of trouble to organize the records by genre (pop, classical, easy listening, children, soundtrack, etc.) and by a few select artists.
I approve of the Dymo tape labels and the sections devoted thrift store mainstays such as Roger Whittaker, The Mom and Dads, Heintje, and, of course, Nana Mouskouri.
Well done, Find, well done.
(PS. It would help me if you could add a Canadian Talent Library section. Thanks)
Is it a painting if it’s made from pipe cleaners?
It’s all about the ladies
A couple of months ago I complained about the new record shelves at Goodwill. Now look what Find did in their latest reorganization:
Hard to flip through, and I’m not even gonna bother bending down to the two bottom rows. What they had before was ideal – boxes on a tabletop. I chatted with an employee and she was well aware of the problem – I guess I’m not the only customer to mention it. Hopefully they’ll do something soon. On the other hand, the corrugated cardboard signage is awesome.
Oh, there they are. Not happy. Even though I have shelves like these at home for my record collection, they’re not as easy for browsing as what Goodwill had before. Also, I’m old and grumpy and don’t like change.
This painting used to greet customers at the Find thrift store, with a clever new saying every few weeks.
He hasn’t been there lately. I hope he wasn’t sold.
I miss him.
Just got this nifty petit point clown at Goodwill. It was made by an 86 year old Lion (the service club, presumably). It makes a very handsome pair with this one I got a few years back:
