Picked up a $2 linksys wrt320n router. Power light just flashes since the firmware is messed up. Gained access through the serial connector with a ttl adapter and flashed dd-wrt firmware on it and it's been working perfect as a bridge.
If its free, its for me!!

Recently picked up a Black Gamecube :gc: with all cords, black controller, orange controller, 2 controller extensions and a nice system carrying bag, all for $38. The controllers are in great shape and the cube looks like it was barely used. It was a little more than I wanted to pay and it had been sitting in the store for about 2 weeks. I just want the bag and maybe the orange controller, I flipped the system and a controller for $30 already so that makes the other pieces only cost about $11 after fees.

1st Goodwill- this is the overpriced one, glasscase was almost completely cleared out.....whered all that overpriced crap go??!! Also parked by the exact same car as me, which was crazy since I dont see too many blue 1979 Mercedes Benz 300D's around.

2nd Goodwill- see New Super Mario Bros U in the case.....$35, pass I didnt even sell my $10 one yet. This biiiiig girl was lookin at the DVD cart and threw like 10 PS2 games in her cart when I walked over, couldnt see what she had. Left a bunch of Singstar games and sports. Walked to the other side cus I saw the Xbox green cases. $3 apiece I got these.

Today I picked up a fat PS2 with a Network/HDD Adapter for $15. Haven't tested it out yet.

Went to GH yesterday, just the same old same old. They had a 50% off Sale on Pink tagged COB Toys, Clothes, and Linens. But it wasn't as great as the last one they had.

Saw some third party controllers. Noticed Super Mario Galaxy for 14.99, but the case was pretty much destroyed. Was going to bite cause it was a Pink Tag and I thought that it was the color of the week. It wasn't. :( Oh well. :lol:

All from a thrift today for $2 apiece, not too shabby. Obviously the Pilates dvd and cross-stitch kit are for the flipping. Saturn game is sealed with the hanging tab.

Xbox for $9 today, no cords. Boots fine, crappy Thomson DVD drive is failing though. Was planning on making a slimbox anyway, so that's no big deal, but it would have been nice to have an extra Samsung/Phillips DVD drive. Oh well.

Also, the fat PS2 w/ HDD adapter I picked up works but it sounds like its drive is starting to go. I'm starting to get a backlog of video game mods/repairs to go along with my game backlog.

Saw a Virtual Boy with controller and stand but missing the foam eye guard and no games, marked for $99.99.

The woman asked if I wanted her to open the case since she saw me looking at it, I snickered a little and told her no.

I have my virtual boy on eBay right now. It came with Mario tennis and no eye visor for $25. It was a good enough deal to play with for a few minutes as I had never seen one in the wild before.

Pretty much the same for me, but it was at Kay-Bee Toys. They had a pyramid of about fifty Virtual Boys stacked in front marked at $20 each. They also had a bin full of games that were $5 a piece - mostly Wario World, Teleroboxer, and Red Alarm.

Had a good couple of days:

Yesterday:

Star Fox 64: 4.99
Harvest Moon Friends of Mineral Town (GBA): 4.99
Evil Dead Hail to the King (DC): 2.99 (I know it isn't good, but I'm going for a complete Dreamcast set and I needed it)

Today:

Left for Dead 2 (360): 1.99

I already have the game, but at that price I wasn't going to pass. This is one of those weird games that Gamestop sells for way more than the real value. They sell it for 44.99 but on ebay they only go for about 20.00. Knowing this I decided to go to Gamestop and see what I could get and if there was anything I wanted. Figured it would trade in for more than I could sell it for online. I was right, I got a little over 28.00 for it! I picked up:

Ghost Trick Phantom Detective (USED)
Solatorobo Red the Hunter (New, but Gamestop new. Completely open but it did have the outer box and soundtrack and the soundtrack was sealed. Outer box is a bit beat up but the rest is pretty mint)

They cost me another 2.00 or so, so for about 4.00 I picked up both of these. Very happy with that.

it depends on your goodwill stores. Some of them put everything that they think is 'good' on their online auction site. Some of them just don't get anything good donated. You really have to go pretty often (and at different times of day) to get a good idea what to expect.

Not too much luck on my first trip... Checked three goodwills and three other thrift stores. Came away with DDR SuperNova 2 complete with case and instructions for PS2... Disk is in good condition, too. 2 dollars at Goodwill.

I don't want to seem like I'm spamming this thread, but I try to do a pickup video every week, most of my videos are about Goodwill finds. This is my latest one. If you like it feel free to subscribe. I keep up with Goodwill stores in my area almost every day (it's starting to become an addiction, haha) so as long as I keep finding stuff I'll keep making videos. Enjoy!

This, go to shopgoodwill.com and try to find something from your local GW. Thank God none of mine are on there!
