I enjoy shopping for second hand DVDs/ blu-rays/ CDs. Unless I absolutely love a film, I won't pay £10-£15 for it.
Disney films rarely end up in charity stores over here. I found Cinderella platinum with slip cover for £2. As long as the discs are OK, I have no problem getting them second hand. You can get some really good deals and occasionally you find something new for really cheap.
Thrift stores in the US sound amazing. Its a rare day indeed when you find a Disney animated classic on blu ray or DVD in a UK charity shop and even then it's usually been scratched to pieces.
Disney DVDs in thrift shops here are scarce as well, at least the classics are. Then again, I feel like the people who DO donate their rare used Disney DVDs buy them in the first place because of their children and aren't aware of their value.
The other day I found most of Pat Benatar's discography and I only ended up paying $16. "Get Nervous", "Precious Time", "In The Heat Of The Night", "Wide Awake In Dreamland", "Gravity's Rainbow", a UK CD Double Feature that had her albums "Tropico" and "Seven The Hard Way" on one disc, though unbeknownst to me beforehand, some songs were edited down to fit a bonus track (the radio edit of "Love Is A Battlefield"
). I also got a 2001 CD called "Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo Live! Summer Vacation Tour Soundtrack" where she performs her hits and some songs from her album "Go", which would be released 2 years later. There's a DVD counterpart with the full concert which I learned is OOP so maybe someday I'll splurge on that. They had "Crimes Of Passion" and "True Love", but I already owned those so I passed on them. I did also find a copy of her OOP album "Go", which I bought even though I already own it - it's very rare and for $2 I figured it would be good to have an extra copy to use in the car or to maybe sell in the future.
Some of the CDs had some light surface scratches and one of them skipped a bit in my car, but they imported to my iTunes just fine. I do eventually want to get the separate releases of "Tropico" and "Seven The Hard Way" to get the full versions of the few songs they edited down, but those are pretty pricy online so that can wait. I also need to find her album "Innamorata" and maybe someday down the road I'll get the remastered versions of "Crimes Of Passion", "In The Heat Of the Night" and "Precious Time", but for now I'm very satisfied with my latest find!
