New Versus Old
This past weekend I stopped in at my first of the season garage sales. They were primarily selling kids things so I ended up buying nothing but there sat a gigantic nice television that works fine with a big free sign. The man was having an extremely difficult time getting rid of it. One of our kids told us that you can recycle things like TVs , even working ones, at most office supply stores (St**ples).
One exception to this rule seems to be records - they started making record players again for those vintage loving nostalgics who are causing the resale market on record players to go sky high.
I like the new flat panel televisions as much as the next guy - primarily for their use in small spaces but what a waste - no one wants perfectly usable items. Something to think about when you set about buying your next new electronic gadget that will cost you big bucks now but in a years time will be obsolete.
