Town near me had its town wide garage sale today. 50+ sales all bunched up in a small area. Only hit about 10 and then had to leave because I'm meeting a guy about a car. I know the car is more important but god does it pain me to leave probably 40 sales unturned XD

Did find a GameCube with a game boy player though which I'll probably flip on eBay to try and offset the price of the car :/ ill be 20 bucks less in debt XD

Picked up a Dreamcast today with 1 controller and all the cables, paid $30 for it. Not a great deal by any means to you guys, but for me it's good because I've been wanting one for the past couple years now and it's literally the first I've seen in any sales, Craigslist or whatever, so I just jumped on it.

First post in the yard sales thread! Woo!

Anyway, I had a damn good morning for Classic games - nothing worth selling but definitely a nice boost to my collection, that's for sure!


------GameBoy------
Donkey Kong Land

--------NES---------
Pro Wrestling
Stake or Die
Super Mario Bros
Super Glove Ball
Solar Jetman
Adventures in the Magical Kingdom
Rad Racer
Legendary Wings
Rad Racer 2
Tennis
Arch Rivals
Super Team Games
Bad Dudes
Operation Wolf
Fester's Quest
Xevious
Rush'n Attack
Elevator Action
RoboCop
To The Earth
MIG 29 Soviet Fighter
Dino Riki
Nintendo Power Super Mario Bros 3 Strategy Guide :bouncy:

-------N64--------
F-Zero X
Command and Conquer
Re-Volt
A Bug's Life
Star Wars Episode 1 Racer
Tarzan
Army Men Sarge's Heroes
Madden 99
Madden Football
Star Wars Rogue Squadron
Aerofighters Assault

-----Super NES-----
Super Scope 6 SNES

----Miscellaneous----
Blue Dreamcast VMU
Red PS2 8MB Memory Card

All this was just $35 at a total of 5 garage sales. Not bad if I do say so myself. Sure, not all of these are gems (hell, some of them are shit) but I can't complain - I feel like I got a deal today and my collection shelf is a bit more full too.

Also picked up a new portable Mic for my laptop ($10) the Remastered Star Wars Trilogy on VHS (Han shoots first in this one, $2) and an Xbox 360 Wireless controller for $10.

And it was henceforth known that Brandon, Lurker of Time, had stolen every single code ever dropped that went without so much as a "thank you." - Blade  :applause:

That Army Men Collector's Edition is nothing special. Towards the end of the PS1's life, lots of series were put out in boxed sets of 3 games each. The Spyro one is probably the only one worth anything. There was also a Crash Bandicoot one, and one that had NBA Live 02/Madden 02/and Nascar Thunder in it. I know there were others.

I feel you pain man. Haven't been able to go to sales for weeks because I bought a car for 3K cash last week. It's killing me inside thinking about all the great stuff I'm missing out on. >_<

At least I got a good deal on the car, but I can barely even afford gas to go to work now.

You should've just gone to the sales. What good is a car if you can't fill it up with second-hand junk?

Scored the following from a later middle-aged gentleman today; it was a pretty bizarre and magical event because he kept bringing boxes up out of his basement :hot:

- 1 NES Console
- 67 games
- 22 boxes
- 12 manuals
- 2 "Docking Bay 10" cases
- 2 Nintendo-branded toolbox-style storage cases
- 1 Sega Genesis and 8 games

All for $80. The games appear to be in pretty good shape, but the storage cases have some musty odor and the boxes require a bit of dusting; still, not too shabby with a little bit of elbow grease.

I haven't gone through everything, though the selection looks decent: (carts) Final Fantasy, River City Ransom, Zelda 1 & 2, Mission Cobra :hot:, (boxes) Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2, some Dragon Warrior 1 paperwork that I might not have...

The best part about this was when I first checked the sale, the missus told me the guy with games was out at a flea market or something. So I went on ahead to a sale two houses down where there were these two dudes closer to my age who were talking about their "$800" CIB Action Set and how they hunt at yardsales too. At this point I check a couple of sales three blocks back and on the opposite side of the road...and finding absolutely zippo I make the critical decision to circle back to the original sale, 45 minutes later. This persistence gets me the rendezvous with Capt. Cool and I sneak out with the find under the noses of some possible competitors.

I've got to see this; I've had a few good ps1 hauls but they're usually only 40-50 games tops.

A lot of people here don't have a computer either, but almost everyone has an iPhone, which I think you can use without a PC these days.

It's not the motherload but I picked up a kinect sensor with adapter, kinect adventures and kinect sports season 2 for $25. The original price on the lot was $40 but I got the price down. I would post a pic but I am using the kinect right now! I think it's safe to say I won't be seeing a kinect for a lower price than that anytime soon.

It's not terrible; I paid $35 shipped for one in nice condition and with the early release import-compatibility.

Community Sale 100+ but fierce competition

Game related -

Posted Image

Hopefully working (charging now) $5

Posted Image

PS2/360 games - $5
Kirby $1
Controller $10

Everything above $21 - DSI works but no charger (which I have from one bought for $10 that does not work) Left Name/number as many empty cases (not shown of course) represented mostly DS games (great titles) that must still be found... only one of a handful of times I left my name/number... hoping this time they call.

Here is my $25 Kinect Bundle

The PC games were... drumroll.. a whopping 5 cents each at another house! I don't think I have ever found a game for 5 cents in my life! I did find NES games way back when for 10 cents each but that was many years ago.

I got Pokemon Red and Pokemon Silver at a yard sale for $0.50 each. Some other good yardsale finds, but nothing else gaming. It seems like eveyone wanted to sell their systems bundled with the games at inflated prices.

I went to a Kid consignment sale this afternoon, though, and found Pokemon Emerald, Pokemon Sapphire, and a bootleg Pokemon FireRed for $9.

I am getting towards the end here too but I think the end is really hot for finds because people are more desperate to get rid of their stuff and are more willing to deal if they know they will either have to sit on their stuff the whole winter or throw it away or donate it. The last 2-3 weeks have been better than the whole summer.

I almost never see Pokemon games around here, and I know people play them, I think they get traded in to Gamestop though because their value is high there, or used to be when they still took GBA games.

Funny... I have literally not found one item the last two weeks. Kind of sucks. Thrifts have been my friends. I know part of that though is I've had to cut back my sale times because of a lack of time due to my earlier work schedule. Instead of spending 4-5 hours each Friday morning, I'm spending 1.5-2.5.

The yard sales are slowing down here too now, which I really dont understand because the weather is like 74 degrees everyday now. Im getting tons of overtime at work and am getting to the point that I just cant bring myself to get up at 5am on my day off to go look at house after house of baby clothes and a-hole resellers having their phony "yard sales" where everything is ebay prices anymore.

I think a reason for the slow down is now I am starting to see tons of these ads where people list "yard sale leftovers" and they want someone to pay a flat price for everything. They charge way too much, dont sell anything, then just give up yard sales all together because they didnt get rich like ebay said they would. I guess selling things for yard sale prices at a yard sale is just totally out of the question for them

I guess I should post it here too since I already post about it in the pick ups thread.

I found this at a garage sale for $10. The old lady said she couldn't get it to turn on anymore, so I took the risk and bought it since I could probably trade it in somewhere, and still make a profit even if it didn't work, but turns out everything is working perfectly, so now I has iPad. ^__^

Nice ipads are still like 200 to be the first one, I personally would have gotten rid of it but then again I hate apple products after we had to use apple laptops in highschool >.>
