I would go garbage picking at these people's houses on garbage day of the area where the sales are, just make sure it's legal before you start picking, I think you could find some stuff because sometimes resellers will just start throwing things out, or people will throw out what did not sell at their sale.

I saw a lot of pick able things today especially CRT TV's that had $40 prices on it that people just threw to the curb. I seriously don't know why people ask that much for something that is totally worthless.

Alright so I got 2 decent things today but not much:

Wii remote with Nunchuck and motion plus adapter plus 4 remote sleeves for $2

Sealed PS2 network adapter for $1

So I stumbled on a DSI XL that I could have had for $10 with no charger but it was not reading the games so I didn't get it, this was from a kid, probably should have gotten it but I just didn't feel like bothering as broken stuff doesn't fetch that much on eBay and I am so saturated with stuff that I need to sell that it's just going to make more pointless work for me.

One thing I hear kids say constantly, almost every kid I talk to says this so it's kind of sad, they all say they gave up their other systems to play Call of Duty or other war game on the Xbox... We are talking kids 8 and up here which is just really sad. Sad that the only thing anyone wants to play around here is CoD, I swear if I hear it from another kid I am giving the mature games speech to the parents...lol.


I'd of bought the DSI off you broken. I have no problem with fixing stuff.

 Sunbury was a bust nothing even decently priced, went over to Northumberland, found some cheap books, some decently priced games but nothing I did not already own.

 

 all in all was decent found about 10 books for anywhere from $0.20 to $0.50 each

 

Did you get out to the community sale leaving town towards Shamokin? I got out around noon and didn't have the greatest luck (granted, it was all day Friday too). I did snag two see through Pelican wireless Gamecube controllers for $1 total. I need to look up if they take adaptors (I'm guessing they do) as they weren't included. Besides that, I got an X Rated patch for a quarter (apparently it's from John Deere snowmobiles from the 70's or 80's) and two paintings for a quarter each as the woman said she just wanted to get rid of everything. My sister walked up after I left and she said everything was then free, but there was nothing else I could be bothered to get.

 

All in all not a great year. There were some video games for $1-$2 (PS, PS2, Gamecube) but nothing I personally cared for. A few DVDs and oddly an asston of VHS, which is odd as last year there were a ton of DVDs. However, the local video store now buys DVDs and resells them so I think they're getting quite a bit from the area.

 

 

 I think so, I'm not in sunbury often aside from the street (61 south I believe) and market from 11 & 15.

 

 Hit up several reagan street and other advertised sales, a lot of the sales were the "your best offer" sales >.> and they wanted ebay prices....

 

 but even still I didn't find anything of any worth for me, I have been looking for some assorted frames, but the ones I liked either had the hang tabs busted off, or were so loose the glass moved easily inside the frame.

 

 I have yet to ever have any kind of find in sunbury, yet in northumberland, I find good stuff all the time, and I find it ridiculous.

Ok day today for gaming-ish stuff but I almost no actual games.

 

c2f8d2feea8fe1c84d22ecf2d2a51d4e.JPG

 

Strategy guides, $1 each. Also came with an old Nintendo Power (Secret of Mana on the cover) which I forgot to include in the picture.

 

ef1e189b8c37f123cef68b3718351678.JPG

 

:br: Argo & :br: FMA: The Sacred Star of Milos - $2 each. Blu-Rays are becoming a fairly common sight at garage sales lately.

 

The SNES game is F-Zero. Paid $1 for it.

 

873ccdbaebf8498659570642037fddf7.JPG

 

This is some stuff I got over a month ago, some from thrifts and some from yard sales. 

 

:gc: Bloody Roar: Primal Fury, :gc: Star Wars: Rogue Leader, Intellivision - Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, Dreamcast - Slave Zero - $2.50 each

Tolkein - Book of Lost Tales 1 & 2 - $1 for both.

SNES controller was $2 at a thrift.

Zelda: MM OST and Nintendo 64 Trilogy OST were also $1 each.

 

The N64 Trilogy is supposed to have CD's for Mario Kart 64, Super Mario 64, and Starfox 64, but the Starfox disc is missing and in its place there's a Zelda OoT disc instead. The case is pretty discolored as you can probably see but it looks like these are fairly rare?

 

I don't even have an Intellivision, but D&D was minty complete and pretty cool looking so I had to have it. The rest should be self-explanitory.

 

6dbe386530ef3d8d530ff99ba1914c36.JPG

 

Paid $17 for this N64 + 2 controllers + GB Transfer Pak. Seller was asking $25, I only had $17 so they took it. A little pricey for coming with no games, but N64's always fetch good money for me on ebay. :| Plus who doesn't love colored controllers?

 

Oh yeah I took these pictures two weeks ago and never posted 'em. Might as well now.

2f436dece1576b47e723d8bb690aa61e.JPG

Paid $30 for this N64 lot.

 

79bf10a0d6969d70bf203f9f4e25c426.JPG

:br: Brave - $2, a little beat up but the receipt from wal-mart was still under the slipcover (original price: $25) 

:ds: Animal Crossing Wild World, :ds: Spyro: A New Beginning, :ds: DS Lite Charger - $1 each (nope the charger isn't for sale, I need 'em too! :lol:)

 

Other stuff I got not pictured

 

Stephen Colbert's "America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't" hardcover for $1.

 

Two (rather crappy) Jazwares Mega Man figures, Mega Man and Elec Man. The Mega was this version http://www.ebay.com/itm/290927298039 which is bafflingly the wrong colors. It doesn't seem like anybody wants these so maybe I'll just try and paint him back to normal. They were just $.75 each at least.

 

And also a nice Ikea-style media shelf for $10. This is the fifth such shelf I've found at yard sales and I can't get enough of 'em.

 

Ok that's all, sorry for the long post.

It might've been worth jumping on that for $5 or less; some of the portable stuff makes for good salvage money. I know where you're coming from though, sometimes you gotta reverse thrusters and sink time into purging rather than acquiring.


I tried to get it for $5 but the kid wasn't having it. The original price was $30 I had him down to 10 I was gonna buy it but I just didn't want to deal with it. Yeah I was probably stupid for not getting it but I just wasn't feeling it. I usually see this for $75 and up at sales but I suspect the value has tanked quite a lot recently since the 3DS and 3DS XL are out.

Ah, Reagan has been alright to me, but yeah Sunbury does tend to do a lot of unmarked stuff and "make me an offer" sales. I don't like making offers, so I'll usually set the stuff back if they seem intent on me making the offer. Then probably 75% of the time or more they throw out a lowball number.

Well it wasn't a stellar weekend for me but I managed some neat items. Some gaming AND non gaming finds so here we go!

 

9102058187_dfb8196022_z.jpg

 

Found this at a sale on the way to work. Found a box that had a Linksys WRTG54GS and a Westell DSL modem/Wireless router. Bother were in a box that said 1$ for the whole box. I bought and sold the Linksys router to a guy at work for $10!

 

9104287440_d6c7a31440_z.jpg

 

Found there and picked them up for a friend. Got a Star Wars Visions, and Star Wars Incredible Cross-Sections for $2 total. My friend loved them when I brought them to him :)

 

9102063925_472e307b97_z.jpg

 

Went to this sale and picked up this game for $2. I got Devil Kings for PS2. One a side note, I also was told to come back to buy an Xbox 360 the next day.

 

9120173165_2b402daa18_z.jpg

 

I picked up all these figures form a yard sale on my way to gamestop for Skylanders day. I ended up also picking up 2 360 games for a grand total of $10 all together. The games I got were Heavy Fire: Shattered Spear and Lord of the Rings Conquest, which went to pay off my Project X Zone preorder. Lots of Ninja turtles in this lot but I can't identify 3 figures in this. The white (Taksunoko?) and white/black (Power Ranger?) figures are from Bandai and the large mutant figure is marked Marvel. I recognize him but can't remember his name.

 

9120180729_5956aa71a9_z.jpg

 

I picked this up from the same sale where I got Devil Kings the day before. We agreed to $10 and I picked it up. The disc drive doesn't want to open so I'll fiddle with that but at least its an easy flip, especially with my birthday coupon coming in soon.

Made it out for the first time this year. New job with weekends off now instead of rotating craziness.

 

First sale I picked up 2x GBA SP's, 1 DS Phat, few carrying cases, Mario Party DS, and one of the Drawn to Life games for $15

 - no cords for the systems and they also look pretty worn, but I'm sure I'll move them easy enough as long as they still play

 - I left behind a bunch of crappier DS and GBA games that they wanted $5 each for and I didn't see the use in trying to negotiate them down

 

Picked up a bunch of DVDs (Disney and workout ones) for a $1 each. The DVDs will be flipping material. The Disney ones will sell easy enough, but I'm not sure on the workout ones yet. They were all in one set and I've had good luck selling those before.

 - in the free box were a few California Raisin figures and an old palm pilot I grabbed. We are going to keep the Raisins and maybe play around with the palm pilot. Not sure why we actually grabbed so we might just see if it is worth anything and if not just give it Goodwill or something

 

Got a Scooby Doo Chia Pet, a 1960's model of a Chevy, and some extra Nintendo cables for $1.50

 - the extra Nintendo brand cables are always good to have around

 - We will either use the Chia Pet or sell it for like 10 bucks online. Haven't decided yet

 - Same thing with the Chevy model. If it is worth money we will sell, if not we will just put it together. (My gf has been all about models last week putting together some Gundam ones)

 

4 DVDs from another sale for $3. Shrek, Pirates of the Caribbean, WallE and Cars

 

Got a snack table and a few book cases for a total of like 30 bucks which we were happy with

 

Manual for Legendary Wings for the NES. Asked about games after seeing it and was told some old lady took all they had but must've forgot that manual so they let me have it. bleh

 

And the weirdest thing from a sale was when I asked about games they brought out this bare bones PS2 with no cables and a few crap PS1 games which I passed on, but then ran inside and pulled out a box of Sega Mega Drive controllers. All official ones. They all look brand new and are wrapped in bubble wrap with the cords professionally tied up. Box had video game controllers stamped on it with some other numbers. The lady and her son (guy was 35ish) said they had just been cutting off the cables and giving them to little nephews to pretend to play with. I bought the box of 10 for $5.

 - Going by what I see on ebay for the model # I should be able to sell them each for $15 easy. Strange thing is the ones I see on there are packed exactly just like mine (half way a cross the country), so Sega must've started sending them out at the end of the Genesis life span like that.

Hehe, my coach bag find was a vintage one, for $2; its my side hobby for funding my love of gaming. I find the vintage stuff, and rehab it back up, condition it all pretty again and earn gaming money. I figure I can make my money spent Saturday back with just that one bag. Someone gets a nice bag for a good deal, I go buy more games. It's a vicious cycle. xD

You absolutely don't steal someone else's deal. That's terrible etiquette and not even slightly cool.

 

 

I agree but the buyer here was a total ass hat and I would've made him pay more (at least).


That is the Legend of Legaia demo, full game has character art on it.

 

Good catch . . . I was thinking the same thing cuz I've gotten burned on this before.

Its best if you have other stuff that you're looking for (rather than just games).  If you come back without games but had other finds . . . you still get a sense of satisfaction.

That's why I'm always on the lookout for CDs :D  They're cheap and (usually) a CD pile at a house will have at least one album I'm into for most likely $1.  My CD collection has grown exponentially in the past year from garage sales, and coming home with a stack of CDs sometimes feels as good as a nice game haul :)

I found some NES games this weekend plus some a copy of Katamari Damacy for $2, but the area I usually go hunting in (Southeast Baltimore/Essex/Dundalk) has become lousy with resellers lately. I'm thinking I need to move further north or east to actually find anything decent.

 

One bright spot, however, has stopping at a sale and finding a SNES controller, DKC2, and Super Mario All Stars in a box full of VHS tapes. The guy offered to let me have the whole box for $1 as long as I took everything, so I happily agreed (I left the VHS tapes out on my street with a free sign and a bunch of the local kids grabbed them). On top of that, it turns out the seller is cleaning out a few garage's and a basement worth of old stuff, so I left my name and number with him and told him to call me if he finds anymore stuff he'd like to get rid of.

 This I love to read, so I always look for the old books :D  Just recently got a copy of Charles Darwin's Origin of Species

Made it out for the first time this year. New job with weekends off now instead of rotating craziness.

 

First sale I picked up 2x GBA SP's, 1 DS Phat, few carrying cases, Mario Party DS, and one of the Drawn to Life games for $15

 - no cords for the systems and they also look pretty worn, but I'm sure I'll move them easy enough as long as they still play

 - I left behind a bunch of crappier DS and GBA games that they wanted $5 each for and I didn't see the use in trying to negotiate them down

 

Picked up a bunch of DVDs (Disney and workout ones) for a $1 each. The DVDs will be flipping material. The Disney ones will sell easy enough, but I'm not sure on the workout ones yet. They were all in one set and I've had good luck selling those before.

 - in the free box were a few California Raisin figures and an old palm pilot I grabbed. We are going to keep the Raisins and maybe play around with the palm pilot. Not sure why we actually grabbed so we might just see if it is worth anything and if not just give it Goodwill or something

 

Got a Scooby Doo Chia Pet, a 1960's model of a Chevy, and some extra Nintendo cables for $1.50

 - the extra Nintendo brand cables are always good to have around

 - We will either use the Chia Pet or sell it for like 10 bucks online. Haven't decided yet

 - Same thing with the Chevy model. If it is worth money we will sell, if not we will just put it together. (My gf has been all about models last week putting together some Gundam ones)

 

4 DVDs from another sale for $3. Shrek, Pirates of the Caribbean, WallE and Cars

 

Got a snack table and a few book cases for a total of like 30 bucks which we were happy with

 

Manual for Legendary Wings for the NES. Asked about games after seeing it and was told some old lady took all they had but must've forgot that manual so they let me have it. bleh

 

And the weirdest thing from a sale was when I asked about games they brought out this bare bones PS2 with no cables and a few crap PS1 games which I passed on, but then ran inside and pulled out a box of Sega Mega Drive controllers. All official ones. They all look brand new and are wrapped in bubble wrap with the cords professionally tied up. Box had video game controllers stamped on it with some other numbers. The lady and her son (guy was 35ish) said they had just been cutting off the cables and giving them to little nephews to pretend to play with. I bought the box of 10 for $5.

 - Going by what I see on ebay for the model # I should be able to sell them each for $15 easy. Strange thing is the ones I see on there are packed exactly just like mine (half way a cross the country), so Sega must've started sending them out at the end of the Genesis life span like that.

 

If you want to trade one of those Megadrive controllers let me know.

out of boredom I emailed the guy with the Sega stuff and of course, he still has it. I guess no one wanted to spend $250 at a yard sale for $40 worth of games. He says "the 32x on ebay is $150" .....um...ok. I say back to him "is that what it sold for or is that what someone was asking for it" and he responds with "that is what someone was asking for it" and I informed him how ebay works; it isnt a store, you can list anything for any price you want. I then sent him a screen shot from ebay where a similar lot sold for $38 and he said "well I've never seen one for that price. You don't know what u r talking about. goodbye". I just wish I could be there when he eventually takes this stuff to a game store or a pawn shop and they offer him $15 for it.

Hey fellow CAGs, I'd appreciate some input on the following yard sale ad that features some NES and SNES games. I was pretty excited about it at first, but upon closer inspection it looks like mostly common titles with some duplicates. I'm starting to think this is just a collector/reseller looking to offload their extras at marked up prices. Thoughts?

Considering how much he's emphasizing the video games (it's the first pic, it's the title, and the first thing listed) I would say the prices would be marked up; doesn't hurt to try though.
