Where do you buy your vinyl? Most of us probably head to the nearest record store. Or maybe you can buy or trade from a friend. Oxfam, and other organizations selling used records, are finding that their revenues are soaring. Renewed interest in buying old records has driven the crowds to look for less expensive versions of their favorites.
Stores run by Oxfam, Goodwill, and other charities receive the goods as donations. Then they turn around and sell those donations from a deeply discounted price. The money they earned is put toward a variety of projects that help the needy within their communities. So, go check out your local charity store. You’ll likely find what you’re looking for and feel good about helping people.
