Thrifty Thursday: Turn on the Music

Price: $195
Location: Wakefield, MA

Victrola in working condition. I can't tell from the picture if that's dust on the top or if they woods worn. You could always sand it down and refinish it with a good coat of stain. It also comes with spare needles so you won't go crazy trying to find the right needle to get the records playing. I have to find a new one for my vintage record player and believe me, it's not fun!

FREE Vintage Stereo
Price: FREE
Location: Puyallup, WA

The best thing about this's FREE! I can't tell if the side panels are missing but if they are, you can use the money you save, to fix that right up. The handles are super cute too.

Modern Record Player
Price: $150
Location: Washington

This is a great record player for someone not into the teak/walnut models. It appears to be a reproduction but there's not much detail on the piece so I can't be certain. A great modern find!

***Thrifty FYI: The Seattle Craigslist was full of great record players in a range of prices. If you're in the area, check a couple out.

Stereo DIY
Price: $95
Location: Oregon

The record player is missing and the sound doesn't work, but with a few scraps of wood and some screws, you could turn this into a bar perfect for entertaining friends or channeling the Rat Pack.

Console Record Player
Price: $145
Location: Quakertown, PA

The stereo doesn't work but it's another piece that has great DIY possibilites. I love the design.
