Not A Bad Week….

Tomorrow is the last day of September, which means I’m approaching the end of the first month of Frankie Goes To eBay. It’s gone quickly!

I’ll be doing a ‘Monthly Accounts’-type post at the end of each month, so expect the first of those tomorrow, but in the meantime I thought I’d let you know that this week has been a particularly active one on the buying front, and mainly because I discovered a rich stash at a car boot sale. I bought 21 records from two different sellers (although the bulk came from one) and paid a total of £32 for the lot. As I’ve already said, some of those 21 records have made their way into my own collection, but a fairly respectable 15 have made it into my ‘Stock’. Of those 15 records some were already in my collection, so these new purchases were duplicates and therefore easy to be dispassionate about. Most, however, are not in my collection but are still great records, so I think I’ve shown remarkable restraint and dedication to the cause. The 16th and final new record came from a Charity Shop on Thursday, which rounded the week off nicely

Here’s a full list of the records I picked up this week:
