nope.


I sent you a pm. I don't think we are in the same area. An internet search of your id says you are not near me assuming the information is correct.

I'll be pissed if I missed a turbografix lot though. :lol:

Ugh two yard sales tomorrow, each advertise video games, each start at the same time and state no early birds but they're 30 minutes away from each other. I hate making decisions, because if I go to one and stuff is overpriced or just not worth it I'm going to beat myself up for not going to the other one first.

I hit a bunch this morning but only one worthwhile sale and it wasn't even great... the one did have a bunch of PS1/PS2 games, grabbed Ape Escape, Spyro 1 and Gran Turismo 2 for 3 bucks. Meh. Spyro will make me a few bucks but meh. The other two are for me, didn't have them, now I do. Besides that... saw two Gamecube sports games, an overpriced PS2 controller and a stack of 09 and 08 PS3 sports games. GREAT day, lol. Hopefully the pawn shop I hit on the way to work will be better. It'd almost have to be.

On a more positive note... sold 3 items I paid a grand total of $14.00 for for $108.00 on Ebay in the last 3 days. I also have another item that I bought for $10.00 up to $60.00 already with a few days left and me hoping it'll go at least to $80.00. So not a bad week all in all. Those funds will pay for my casino trip tomorrow night.

Another fucking YARD FAIL for us.

I am calling these shitty sales yard FAILS, they are not sales, they are fails.

Of course if I wanted dirty panties, they would be pure win.

Next week though, I got a good feeling about the community sale.
Tune in Saturday to see if I get pissed again or not.

Went to that community sale this morning.

Didn't buy anything, but one guy had a bunch of NES and SNES games. Some of the NES games were boxed. Idea of some of his prices: he was asking $45 for Blaster Master and $5 for a cart only Bart vs. Space Mutants.

Rest of the sale was pretty lame. No vinyl records. Glad it only cost $1 for admission.

Only went to about 8 sales or so; I'm recovering from strep and still feel rough but decided I wouldn't waste a Saturday morning off. Got this at the first sale:

Posted Image

Paid $10 for the N64 and games, $1 for the 360 controller.

Posted Image

$13 total at an unadvertised sale. Sucks that Paper Mario's label is torn, but will go in the collection for now. Passed on a few systems, there was a SNES with hookups and 3 controllers for $25; I should've haggled down to 15 or 20 but it was dirty and I really don't need another system right now. Also saw a jungle green N64 for $30, but with no matching controller, jumper pak, or the cover, I had to pass.

Nice find on that N64 bundle. I got one myself today but for $20

Went to a community yard sale 30min before open, gated community guard wasn't there, eventually made it back to that sale 20min after opening. It was a really good sale actually, a lot of variety.

Ill update later with pics, I got some good gaming pickups. But my favorite picks this week were non gaming.

Went to a sunday only with video games advertised today. I must have gotten there seconds too late because when I asked about the box of NES and Master System games the woman said shes holding them for "that woman over there". I went over near her and started looking at some other stuff and I could hear her describing things to search on ebay over the phone with someone. I was really tempted to tell the people running the sale that she was just going to resell it and that I would take it to a good home, but I held my tounge :/ It pisses me off that the competition isnt even other people who actually fucking play the games and appreciate them. If it was some 25 year old guy/girl who wanted to play I wouldn't have felt so bad about being late, but this just....... UUUUGHHH I guess I'll just have to beat her next week ;)

That's what I run into now more than anything (or the same thing with mobile phones)

You can:

1) move on
2) call them out "So what are the games selling for on Ebay?!"
3) call them out to the seller..."Maybe you should look these up on ebay before you sell them" (If I don't get the games, nobody will!) :lol:
4) tell the seller how much you are disappointed and how you would actually play the games
5) Ask how much and add to the offer

Had a good weekend, got some gaming stuff but my best finds were non gaming.

Spoiler


My brother got a cool find, unopened brand new tom tom ease for $2
Got two WW2 hardcover books for $2. Desk lamp for $1. Nice clock for $2

And my best find, which I barely managed to pick up. Was a complete patio set for $5.00
Included 4 chairs, nice glass patio table with center hole for umbrella. Cast iron umbrella stand, and a Sunbrella umbrella, which is a very nice brand. It retails for $170 new.
I thought it was just the table for $5, but started talking and she said it was everything. I looked around and saw some flea market resellers eyeballing it, just told he I would buy it and handed her the money. Didn't have a truck, had to get my uncle to help me bring it all home. While I was talking to here, 3 people asked about buying it. Cleaned up very nice.

I appreciate the non-gaming find posts . . . everybody should bring up some of their other finds.

I picked this up for a few bucks about 1 month ago . . .

Sold it yesterday for $80 on Amazon . . . got a feeling it might have brought more around the holidays.

This is a typical game find :-( One lone item at a table.
Posted Image
.25 for a network adapter disc (with slim system manual) . . . I can put this in with a network adapter that I was thinking of selling

Why can't I get a great N64 bundle?
Posted Image
Saw this for $20 . . . guy accepted $10 (I thought he'd push for $15)

8, yes 8 different sales are represented in the next pic.
Posted Image
Prices are hard because they were often part of bundles (books, DVDs, or CDs included). Oblivion was under $2 . . . I was surprised to get the coin--my second this season. N64 wrestling was .25. PS1 discs were .25 (I have a discless SOTN case and manual from a thrift). $4 for Eternal Darkness, $2 for Sega Rally, $1 for sealed Dora, $1 for Barbie, $3 for Eternal Poison (complete with both discs). I could've included Sims 3 for 360 but I sold it already.

I wanted Sunshine and MP5 and would've paid $4 for them . . .
Posted Image
Paid $5 for the whole bundle . . . DC is complete, GC is just the sys.

This was a nice surprise . . . not pictured are PS3 Black Ops and MW3
Posted Image
Paid $55 for all . . . BO and MW3 I sold yesterday for $25 each.

I was going to pass this sign but drove out of my way to fiund 3 sales in a cul-du-sac. First one had:
Posted Image
Asked if it was $10 for all but the dad said it was $10 each . . . paid $15 for all.
Across the street found these:

Paid $10 for all

I see at least $140 in value (depends on condition of discs) . . . fucking awesome for $15.

You passed up on this?

Was it in box?

Wow.

I had this one 2 years ago:

http://www.amazon.co...duct/B0006D3QO8

I stumbled on the controller in a garage (no other gaming stuff in sight) and would passed on it but I noticed some logos on it . . . paid $2. I dug out AC5 and it tested great . . . I added AC4 and sold it for $120 on Amazon.

Yeh that's the one,No it wasn't in box. I was going to go back but figured it had been snatched up already.

Highschool kids but the mom priced the games. I heard the mom say to one of them "it's for charity" . I think they told her it was too cheap.
