Although it's not Americana or Roots, I did buy something at a garage sale that I thought was a pretty good score, especially for the price. $3.00 for a first release of Grand Funk Live, good condition including the poster that originally came with the album. The posters are rare, as they almost always got hung up or if they were saved, they have thumb tac holes or scotch tape on them. This one is a little brittle, but in very good condition.
Last weekend I bought a Dobbs Center Dent Panama Straw Hat for this weekends Houston International Festival held in downtown Houston (Jimmie Vaughan and the Tilt-A-Whirl Band with Lou Ann Barton, Keb' Mo, Robert Cray).
I'll probably wear the hat again the following weekend for Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Lucinda Williams and the Joe Ely Reunion Band with Bobby Keys!
