Collection of 21,000 Vinyl Records Donated to Thrift Stores
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A Platteville man has donated more than 21,000 vinyl record albums to raise money for a thrift store chain in Madison.
Agrace Thrift Stores will begin selling Jerry Roh’s albums Friday morning. Genres include rock, country, religious, polka, children’s, classical, and blues music.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports that most of the records will sell for $1 to $4, but others that are more collectible could fetch $10 to $60, depending on artist, title, and condition.
Roh spent years building the record collection, saying he tired of the hobby about three years ago, and decided last month to put it to a good cause.
