Pop Goes The Reggae!!!

I don’t know what brings me to my local Salvation Army store. I feel so sorry for those old people who volunteer and know nothing about collectables. I was told some kid was moving, and made a hasty decision to not tote all his vinyl records. This guy had about 150 killer reggae records. They normally sell vinyl albums for $1.00 each. The old man gave me all three huge stacks for $30.00. I felt so bad I bought him a coffee and large doughnut. He was thrilled.
Only in California could this happen.
