Left work this morning at 8am (worked the overnight) and headed 5 sales. Nothing buy junk at each one. I did notice though that there was a good yardsale later on starting at noon. So I went home to a nap for a 2 hrs and got up and headed over to that one.
I picked up a ton of books though. Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Japanese history, manga, etc. Guy is moving to Tokyo beginning of August.
Books were mostly all a dollar each except for a few big hardcover collection (HP Lovecraft, etc.) which were two dollars. I also got a Bub (from Bubble Bobble peg display toy)
I spent more than I probably should have, but I think I got a lot of cool stuff.
Manga/Comic wise I got the entire Chrono Crusade, Steam Detectives, FLCL, Metropolis and some Sinfest books.
Even though the manga and comics are worth very little I will plan on bringing it with me to the Anime Con is April. I imagine I should be able to trade a full series for some different full series, or maybe a few DVDs or some other random stuff.
Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, ficiton, japanese etc - some good ones were HP Lovecraft, stuff by Gene Wolfe (replacing by New Sun books that somebody lost), all the Three Kingdom Books, excerpts from Journey to the West, a book on Medieval Combat and a bunch of other stuff.
He said he might have another yardsale if stuff doesn't sell - so I may go back next week and pick up any more books that look interesting. There is probably no re-sell value to any of this stuff (for the most part) but a lot of entertainment value.
Only some friends, myself and one old Russian couple came by during the whole hour I was there after it opened. The Russians left empty handed when he wouldn't budge on some stuff they wanted. I was kind of surprised they were there anyways - asking about jewlery, old watches, etc.
Some stuff that he had that I wasn't into was a bunch of table top RPG books and LARP outfits. Not my stuff for the most part.
