My hunt for records goes beyond record stores and fleamarkets. In the Netherlands are many so-called Kringloop shops, that give second hand goods a second life. Electronics are tested and repaired when needed. Other goods are sorted in re-sale and non sale items. This shop is huge and even has a kind of restaurant and a separate shop where goods made of recycled wood are being sold.
The records and CD's I went through where a real surplus. Nothing special; 98% is of no interest to collectors. Prices were low.
