a new project

hello lovely,
i went estate sale-ing with a sweet friend from work this morning. we were supposed to be looking for furniture for her new house but of course i was the only one to buy something. i found this record player console for $15!! it isn't really our style so i think we will try to sell it. niles isn't excited about having a project so i think i'm on my own with this one. i'm posting some photos i took on my phone. if anyone knows someone who knows anything about repairing this kind of thing please let me know! when you plug it in a little light comes on over the player. you can hear the vibration through the speakers when you flick the spot where the needle goes so that works. when you move the arm over the record you can feel it vibrate. a woman at the estate sale told us she thinks it just needs a new belt. so, that doesn't sound too bad, right? if i can find the parts... if it costs too much to repair i'll probably just sell it for $30 and call it a day. if we can get it working for cheap i can sell it for at least $100. i'll let you know what i find out!
