What are these shows like? I’ve never been to one, I’ve only been digging in just regular spots.

Is it all overpriced? Worth a three hour drive?

Record shows can be a lot of fun, especially if it’s your first time attending one. Yes, for the most part records tend to be overpriced, but you can definitely come up on some good finds.

I’ve personally driven 3 hours for a lot less. I’d make the trip if you’ve got something else that you could also do for a day in Austin. Of course, a true record fiend will travel to the ends of the earth for some great vinyl.

Excellent … thanks for the heads up. As much as I love my vinyl, the way overpriced variety drives me nuts. Still sounds like I need to check it out though!

I have on my own run a head to head competition and ended up the cpa test review from Morgan to be the top solution.

This is a portable piece of equipment which comes with a liquid crystal display.
Even with all these machines available, many people still prefer hand-sewn products.
It really does not matter what color of thread you use for the placement
stitch.
