Went to a distant (30 min. away) neighborhood sale on Thur. but didn't find much (not pictured--got a KOTOR I Xbox complete for $1). As I was driving back I saw a sign in this little town on the highway . . . as I turned on the block, I saw another sign for a deeper sale . . . decided to go deep and come back. I walk into this garage and there were a ton of really nice DVDs and Blu-rays . . . I cherry picked about half of them and got a good $500 in value for $50 . . . I know, I know, you're wondering WTF! So, here is a pic of most of it:
Note that some of the Blu-rays are Critereon Collection. Some were sealed . . . all near mint.
As I was digging through the DVDs I saw a PS2 but it was marked $50. I was at this sale for 20 mins. and there wasn't another shopper. The PS2 had some mics and a guitar and crap games but I noticed it was white . . . actually thought it was a Wii. So, after I paid for the DVDs I offered $25 . . . she said she would do $30 . . . so we met at $27.
I didn't know it had any extra value until I looked it up on Amazon later. The Gungrave is flippable and the Jimmy Neutron is sealed. I also didn't know there was a Logitech wireless controller included until I got home
I only went out for a few hours on Friday and the most notable game pickup was this N64:
I paid $25 and really shouldn't have bought it. I saw it marked $50 and asked if the woman would do $20 . . . I shouldn't have offered anything. She said the lowest was $40 and it would've ended there but her husband was passing by and he thought $25 would be OK (with all the games). At that point, I couldn't walk away.
On Sat. I could only stay out until 11:00 but there was a really cool subdivision sale (50 houses and the people are really nice). I had cruised by a few of the houses that started on Friday and one right in the middle said there'd be games on Sat. So I memorized the house and got there first thing at 8:00. Sure enough there was a stack of games . . . I pulled out these:
There also was a Black Ops 360 but the woman pulled it back
I paid $12 for the above.
I pitched $18 for these:
My offer was accepted so fast that I knew I should've offered $12
When I saw OBO on this:
I offered $10 and the guy was so nice, that he let me have the PS3 baseball game after we agreed.
2 for $1 on these:
I keep forgetting that only the Xbox SW Battlefront II has value but the Secret Weapons (complete) will flip.
As I left the subdivision, I needed to move toward home (as I promised my wife) and had to skip many, many sales on the way home
I did stop a few more and got over $500 worth of books (many textbooks) at one house and scooped up this at one my last sales:
No power adapter but has a screen protector (so I hope its clean underneath). Holds a charge and works well. Paid $10.
