Butterfly record

This record is cut with different butterflies that I then warmed with my hair blower and manipulated with metal picks to rais the wings so they are ready to take flight.
We went to Greenville, SC to visit family and I saw a similar huge metal sculpture. Had to try it.

That’s a very creative way to turn something that’s likely trash into something useful. Nice!

Jerry Butler? The Flamingoes? The Dells? If it wasn't scratched up, that woulda been a good record to have IMO.....

Vinyl has been hot for a number of years - maybe take a sample to the local record stores.

@Berta - Those I have heard my son talk about (he's an avid collector) are All Day Records, Carrboro, Chaz's Record Shop, Durham and Schoolkids Records, Chapel Hill. I'm sure there are some in Raleigh also. @mike - depending on musician and condition (just important for the jacket as it is the vinyl) each could be worth anywhere from cents to hundreds of dollars.

Yeah, I know. We tried to get to GA to get them but she just wants to clean house.

Actually, sometimes it's the obscure that fetch a big price - how about Rita and the Tiaras "Gone with the Wind" for $8,000?
I'd search before you saw!

@Berta ,I saw the title of this thread and my first thought was that you were going to tell us about the record number of winged butterflies in your flower garden. We've had a banner year for them in our butterfly bushes - hundreds!

Your records are beautiful.

My butterfly bush is still recovering from the last hurricane. We have butterflies, not as many blooms as we should though.
