In counsel Bluffs, Iowa, which is connected to Omaha, NE- there is a store called Kainsville Collectibles. This store is insane. I have never seen so many records in one place in all my life. There is atleast 3 or 400,000 records. The upstairs that has three rooms at over half of the stores inventory is jam packed and all the records cost a dollar. You have to be ready for the must and dust but it is worth it. A lot of digging is required but it usually pays off. You also better have hours on your hands to make it worth your while. The first time I visited the store, I came home thanking God that I had a record cleaning machine. The last time I was there, I picked up an Elvis Costello record for a dollar that is worth fifteen. There are a lot of hidden trasures here.
