Announcement Finding vintage items in my local Thrift stores is a great hobby. I keep what I like but follow the rule 1 in 1 out, right now I have a few items that need to be moving to new homes.

Love the items. Bought them for my mom for Christmas because they are from the set she had when she got married. She was so excited and they were delivered very fast!
I opened this shop to feature lower priced vintage items and sewing supplies, so Thriftpicker was born.
I acquire a lot of these items at the local tthrift stores, thus the name Thriftpicker.
I also have a shop called Decortiques on Etsy and my wife will be opening a shop for plus size handmade dresses and other goodies.
I sold on Ebay for many years and left when they decided they did not need part time sellers.
Retired Discount Store manager, Shoe repair leather worker, sales in Food, tools, and cameras. And a few other jobs. I love vintage. Slimming down some of my acquisitions and still looking for the unusual.

The following is probably the closest thing there currently is to a commonly accepted definition for the grading of condition of vinyl albums and their covers.
Unfortunately, this standard is not used universally . A `VG` for one seller might only be a "G" graded by another seller`s standards.
SS Still Sealed
Never opened. Flawless, with no damage whatsoever.
M- Mint Minus / EX+ Excellent Plus or M Mint
Has been opened, but is still flawless with no damage whatsoever.
Vinyl : No visible marking / scuffing / scratches & plays perfectly.
VG+ Very Good Plus / EX
Vinyl: May have scuff marks and signs of some wear but will still play almost perfectly throughout, with only "barely detectable" crackles or pops. A slight noise at the begining is allowable, but the remainder must be nearly flawless. Definitely no scratches or gouges that a touch with a dry finger can feel.
Cover: May only have the slightest signs of normal wear.
VG Very Good / EX-
The majority of saleable albums fall under this grade.
Vinyl: May crackle, pop or make other annoying noises, but only occasionally,never continuously, and not more loudly than the music being listened to
Cover: Normal used cover wear such as ring wear and split seams.
"Good" actually means "trashed" in collector circles!
Vinyl: May have continuous low level crackles, pops, etc... but not so loud as to make the music completely unlistenable or unenjoyable to the casual listener. Might also have "nasty little scratch" causing popping on one or two more songs, with the rest of record playing fine.
Cover: More than normal wear and tear.
i.e. Vinyl: Only one side playable
i.e. Only one or two songs on the whole album are playable.
