Retro Is Making A Big Come Back In Cassette Tapes & Vinyl

Next time you are shopping at an estate sale keep your eyes alert for cassette tapes and vinyl records.

In the last few weeks cassette tapes have received a lot of attention.

Urban Outfitters has been selling vinyl records to collectors and now they are selling cassette tapes from numerous artists. Urban Outfitters is not only selling new cassette tapes, but also the boom boxes to play them on. You can read more about it in this article written by Sharelle M. Burt

Bobby Owinski of Music 3.0 also wrote an article on the return of the cassette tape. In it he provides more information from the National Audio Company.

The video below about the National Audio Company is from Bloomberg Business.

Fascinating that what was old is now “new” again. Watch for them at the next estate sale you attend.

What Is Vintage And Why It Is Estate Sales Hot Sellers

If you have been retail shopping you realize that what’s old has become new again. A few months ago we wrote about the return of stereo turntables, vinyl records, and cassette tapes.

We have been looking at estate sales across the United States and have found several interesting vintage items from a wringer washing machine to a 1967 vintage camping trailer.

Vintage has become a generic term for anything that has been used in years past, but does not qualify as an antique. Most items date from the 1930’s to 1980. Mostly in the mid 20th century.

Antiques are items approximately 100 years old.

Let’s look at some vintage items that are for sale at estate sales now or in the near future. Many people have appliances restored or repurpose them.

What a year it has been here at EstateSalesNews.com Here is a partial look at the nearly 200 articles that have been published on our front page this year.

In January we reported about advertising including the use of Facebook and SEO (search engine optimization). We also covered winter sports and finding skis, skates, snowboards, and snow shoes at estate sales. We also talked about holding estate sales in the cold, snow, and ice. This December many areas of the country are still waiting for snow while others are almost snow bound.

February we covered several memorable estate sales including one selling a Ford Model A with video, and our article about How To Find Your Estate Sale Company. We featured a liquidation sale with antique and vintage pinball machines and we wrote about several websites where you can advertise your estate sale company with out cost for basic information plus some great throwbacks.

In march we announced through a video a new advertiser, EstateSale.com. We discussed estate sales over Passover and Easter, what was selling at estate sales, having wardrobes before the age of closets, along with the difference between antique, vintage, and retro. We also wrote about what’s driving shoppers to estate sales.
