Yesterday there was one community sale. Only a few video games purchases to talk about.

1) A DS game case with 4 cart only game - Super Princes Peach, Nintendogs, Tamagotchi 2, Hannah Montana
2) A PH NGC Paper Mario (w/o manual) for $10, I caved to sell it to pay for the day and travel

My first stop of the day netted me a Sonic plush, Knuckles plush, some pokemon figurines, 3 Pokemon comics, and (ironically enough) a NGC Paper Mario manual
My games list, Just hit 1000!!!

So far I've found...this thread.

I'm in Illinois. No one holds garage sales in this weather.

NY here. And even though we've had a pretty mild winter for our area, I won't see any garage sales for a few months still.

I guess I'll need to start taking some weekends (or at least Saturdays) off and start exploring for deals. I've wanted to go yard sale shopping for years, but working retail kind of pulls the plug on that idea.

Where are all the warm weather CAG's with their saturday finds? I figured the season never ends in places like southern California, Arizona, Florida, etc. This is my favorite thread here. Cold weather stinks.

Interesting story...

Back in September, I found Lethal Enforcers (Sega CD) with BOTH Justifier guns at an estate sale for $6. I take them home to find out they don't work. I was so pissed, but for whatever reason, I hung on to them.

We just moved and now I have a different TV in my game room. I try the guns again and they work perfectly. Blew my mind! Turns out they didn't work on the flat CRT TV I was using, but on a curved tube TV, they worked fine.

7-8-12 finds (nope, not a typo) :lol:

This is my Genesis Lot. I was too late for his N64 lot. I can only imagine what it was like. Luckily my competition didn't see this lot as it was under a table.


Bought these to flip: (I ended up paying $15 total for everything)

These are by far the cleanest/nicest genny games I have found...

For now. I know I have some of the SEGA games already, but they are all packed up from my move. I would only dump the junk stuff I already own.


EDIT: Just to show how far behind I am...I still have to post the rest of my finds (and the pics aren't even done yet)!

Yeah...I was typing this on my phone and trying to keep from reposting all the pictures. Guess I missed one.
