BERLIN – A massive collection of over 10,000 vinyl records will be for sale this weekend at Turnpike Antiques and Vintage on the Berlin Turnpike.
“There are some great names in there,” said Patrick Rhodes, manager of the antique shop, 1660 Berlin Turnpike.
The shop recently acquired the records from a family who had been collecting for decades.
“It’s a little bit of a variety,” he said. “From theatrical scores to classic 70’s and 80’s.”
The shop staff initially tried to sort through the genres and organize them before deciding to sell them on a “first-come first-serve” basis starting Friday.
“It was one of those things where we weren’t entirely sure what we were going to do...sell the entire collection as is altogether or piece it out record by record.” he said. “We found there was just so much interest we decided to sell them individually.”
The records will be sold for $5 each. The collection includes albums by the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Elvis Presley.
Since the antique shop opened early last year, it has received a lot of requests for vinyl records.
“Online selling has certainly changed things but being able to touch it I think is part of the puzzle too,” said Chris Edge, town economic development director.
The sale will start at 10 a.m., Friday and continue through the weekend during normal business hours.
