A big score!

Today I went thrift shopping in the town of Nieuwleusen. The last store I visited was selling it's last items, so I went in to see what the movie section had to offer. To my surprise the movie section was brimming with VHS tapes! I quickly grabbed a cardboard box and started filling it with the best tapes that I could find. While doing this the owner called John approached me. He was curious about why I was so interested the VHS tapes, even though he could not tell the difference between VHS and DVD.

I explained the difference and told him about digitizing obscure VHS tapes because of the possibility that they aren't released on DVD and could go lost in movie history. I wanted to make a deal with John on the price of the tapes. But instead he told me he was happy to have finally found somebody that was interested in them and said I could have ALL VHS tapes for free. For free!? I grabbed more cardboard boxes and cleaned out the entire section! I got more than I bargained for!

Because John is old school and only knows the Internet by name, I offered to help him out next week with the online part of his store. If I find the time, expect many entries from me on vhscollector.com

Damn man, though not as good as you, last year I got 320 tapes at .10 each. Tons of 80s clamshells, Vestron Video, WWF Coliseum Video, etc. I think a guy died and he donated his whole personal collection to one store, they didnt have the space so they cut the price from .50 to .10. If the cover looked good I grabbed it, didnt even have time to glance at them more than that. I got so many I had to move the spare tire in my trunk to the front seat, ha.
