Got a Wii steering wheel and balance board plus Wii Fit and some sports game for $12 today. Then picked up disc-only copies of GTA 4 (360), Assassin's Creed (360), and Zelda Ocarina of Time (GC) for another $12. So nothing great, but I'll make a little profit.

 

Also got some DVDs: Lord of the Rings trilogy for $5, Law and Order second season for $2.50, and 88 Minutes (blu-ray version) for $2.50.

Not much around for this weekend.

Each of the following groups are from separate sales.  All the movies and Soul Reaver 2 was $2.  Terminator Salvation PS3 was $4.  Talked the sellers down on Super Mario Galaxy from $10 to $5.

Autographs.  All for $5.  There were more in the group but they were water damaged.  It's possible they are counterfeit, they each came with a "certificate of authenticity" that looked like a photocopy.  They are officially licensed photos, though (have the hologram).  For $5 I'll take a chance.  I'm going to have the Penny/Shaq photo authenticated.  If it turns out ok I'll get the Penny checked also.

There was a highway sale this particular weekend, but it was cool with scattered rain and drizzle.  Myself and a few members of the family went out anyway, there were many sellers willing to wheel and deal because of the lack of traffic.

Found this at a sale under a large tent for $7.  First time I've run into a Coleco Vision in the wild around here.

Saw this at a house that started setting up after a brief rain.  I was the first person to approach the sale.  First grabbed the PS1 for $1 because I wanted the PS2 controllers.  The lady asked if I was interested in more video games and I said "sure, I guess". ;)  She pulls out the Xbox with hookups, no controllers with RDR and offers them for $3.  Unfortunately RDR has a crack on the spindle.  She then mentions she has a Nintendo and excuses herself to go find it.

Only items in the box are the Styrofoam packing,  power pad in box, the Nintendo, and A/V hookup.  She says she will take $5 for it.  Sure, why not. :razz:  Walked away paying $9 for all of it.  I already have all the stuff needed to complete the Nintendo setup so not bad!

Found these at various sales.  CDs were $1 each, BB King DVD was $1, GNR VHS were $0.50 each, Saw PS3 talked down to $3, Ted Bluray was $3. 

 

Saw an extremely filthy Nintendo Wii for $30, passed.  It looked like they blew cigarette smoke directly into the vents then kicked dust onto it.  Also the controllers appeared to be mauled by the family dog or young child.  At this point I made a goal for myself, to find a nice condition Wii for $40 before the season was over.

There was a sale advertising DS games, so I was out bright and early to get prime choice.  I find the sale and there is nothing set up.  I decide to hit a few other sales and swing back by later.

Found this at an unadvertised sale for $20.  Almost missed it, the box was under a table but FFVII was on top of a table above it.  Apparently someone else had been digging through them.  Will end up flipping them if they are not in better shape than the ones I already have.

 

Went back to the sale that was advertising DS games and they were putting things out, and the sale was already packed.  Still found some nice stuff.

The Wii games were marked $1 each and the DS games were $3 each.  Goldeneye 007 is from a different sale, it is factory sealed and I talked them down from $10 to $5.  I also picked up a black 5 shelf media stand in like new condition for $5 from that sale.  Not too shabby for a short morning.

Went to a video game one today, as usual during this time of month. Saw a Turbo Grafx, but didn't really want it so left it.

Got a Hudson Joycard Sansui SSS NES controller. It was built in Fukushima back in the day, it's a turbo controller with audio out for your headphones.

In addition, a SNES controller, a SNES extension cord, a Ps/SS/universal power cable, and Mendel Palace.

I went to a yard sale saturday and saw some kids walking away with some gameboy colors but they left a blue gba behind so I picked that up for $5. It had a copy of super monkey ball on the inside. Kind of wish I had gotten there earlier. Other than that I picked up two guitar hero controllers for the wii for $1 each. Also I ended up having to help my aunt move a stove that I guy at a yard sale gave to her just to get rid of it. I don't know why but seems like every time I go to a thrift store or yard sale I end up having to move something heavy.

Got a few scores today. Biggest one was a guy who must have had hundreds of games (he was apparently given them by someone who owed him money). From him I got a fat PS2 with all hookups and a controller, Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness, GTA 3, GTA Vice City, Tomb Raider Chronicles, and Tomb Raider Last Revelation for $40. Tried to get him to go lower but no deal, and he even hooked it up to show me it worked, so I paid it.

 

Only other things were a couple Gameinformer magazines (free), and The Sims 3 and Tomb Raider Underworld for PC ($1 each).

I picked it up at an indoor moving sale. I was having a pretty slow day and almost considered heading home early, but I'm glad I didn't. The lady wanted $10. I offered $5, and she counter-offered with $7. I non-chalantly replied with "Hmm…yeah, I guess I can do $7."

 

Next week is the week before Thanksgiving weekend and the weather is getting colder, so this was probably the last yard sale weekend for me until Spring.

I like living vicariously through this thread and seeing what people who are more motivated than me can find. I love the fact that you bargained her down from $10. I would have been fumbling for my wallet ready to throw $10 at her.

I would've a few months ago as well, but I've been working on haggling recently.  I had never really done it before because I used to always get annoyed with people trying to get lower prices at my own yard sales (in my pre-CAG days), so in my mind, I guess I thought I was being polite.  But now that I'm living in a rural area again where bartering/trading is common, I decided to put my Oregon Trail II skills to the test and I've been getting good deals left and right (got my wife a nice dresser not too long ago for only $7; just needed to be sanded and painted).  Last night, some lady listed ~45 games online with "make me an offer".  I decided that I was willing to pay $1 each, so I would offer $40 with the hope that she would counter with $45...but then I thought "Fuck it, I'll offer $30 and see what happens."  She accepted and I pick them up tomorrow after finishing up my volunteer work at the school library.

I'm hoping to find a cheap PS3, N64 games and systems, and a 7.1 home theatre receiver.

I second the PS3 ($30 or less would be nice). But what I really want to find is a Sega Master System. I bought a stack of SMS games at Goodwill a few years ago, but I don't have the system.
