Update 02/28/13

febRecord Vs. House has had a really productive sophomore month!  Over the month, I sold 20 records and made $469.19 towards the purchase of a house.  Can you even believe that?!  Look at my little savings account growing!  See what’s available right now in my eBay store!

Some of my biggest sellers were Lucero ($95), Mogwai ($50), and Pearl Jam ($50).  But My Bloody Valentine took the cake at a whopping $165!

I had a “weak” moment when I bought the new Guadalupe Plata album, but Casey made me feel a lot better when she told me it was okay—that I don’t have to sell every record.  This is a honing of my collection to only keep everything I love.  And in that direction, I decided to start a discography list of the records I decide to keep at discogs.com.  You can see the first couple entries by looking up my Records Vs. House Discogs profile, which will also have a link on my links page from now on.

I tried to list some of my cheaper records this month.  There are lot listed for $0.99.  But I am going to start throwing in more big numbers again.

Record Vs. House has officially been active for one month.  What’s been going on?  Over the month, I sold 8 records and made $71.44 towards the purchase of a house.  I know, it’s not much, but it’s a start!  Look at my little savings account growing!  See what’s available right now in my eBay store!

I’d like to make a shout out to my friend Casey, who has graciously made me her charity case and purchased a few records.

I said goodbye to Olivia Tremor Control, Karate, and Jim O’Rourke, but perhaps I am saying hello to homeownership in Guatemala, Spain, or New York!  This is a crazy ride, but I feel like I am making a positive change in my life.

Also, at my friend Patrick’s request, I will list some cheaper records this month.  My Bloody Valentine is too much?  Okay, okay!  I’ll take it down a notch!
