Melted vinyl records make great retro bowls.

My Mum did this to my Dads entire record collection of vinyl from the 50s and 60s. All mint condition. All tirned into plant pots for a school fete.
It was the only time I ever saw them have a real screaming match. 🙁Posted 4 years agofootstomperMember
Always check what is in your collection and spend a little time on the internet checking if any of them are collectable, there are some very pricey vinyl records out there.Posted 4 years ago
In the music of my choice Northern Soul a rare record goes for thousands in fact one in particular (Frank Wilsons Do I Love You ‘indeed I do’ )last sold for around £20,000 😯JunkyardMember

Aye no one can touch mine except me.
Even the kids know the guitar will get you shouted at and the records will get you in deep deep trouble
I suspect they will hold their value for some time but if you dont want them sell them [ and hang your head in shame]Posted 4 years agoscotroutesSubscriber
Keep, chuck, sell?
100+ albums, 20-30 EPs, 150-ish singles. Not catalogued. Condition variable. Nothing to play them on. I don’t think there are any fantastically rare records in there (a few Beatles at maybe £5 each) and I’m not goint to the effort of checking them all.Posted 4 years agodebaserSubscriber
Keep or sell, but don’t chuck them.
Records are always great – with the notable exception of when you are moving house. I always curse my vinyl collection whenever that happens.
EDIT – Just noticed that you don’t have anything to play them on. If you’re not planning on buying a new record player, then you may aswell sell or donate them to charity.
Melted vinyl records
As a toddler, I carefully placed a dozen or so of my dads 7 inch singles along the top of the fire guard and watched them melt. I am honestly surprised that I am still here to tell the tale.Posted 4 years ago
