Only things I would like to find at a yard sale so far this year are a cheap Xbox One or a cheap iPad.

Ok let me start this out with saying that being a mailman I work just about every Friday and Saturday so I miss out on most of the good sales in my area unless their are those occasional Sunday only sales. Anyways, I'm checking craigslist when I get home a Saturday in August(at like 3pm) and I see a post about "sale going on now" that was posted at almost noon with a picture of this huge chest full of games and dvds. Figure most will be gone by the time I get there, but to my surprise this sale is barely touched. Pick up the 2 ds systems, and a bunch of games for them and then see a few snes games sticking out of a bag buried in some empty boxes, the games were Final Fantasy 3, Super Mario All-Stars and Mortal Kombat 3.

Then going back to that big chest of games and dvd's i see super smash bros melee but it's empty, but I do find luigi's mansion and pokemon colosseum. Pick up all that and  the ps2, xbox(including battlefront 2)

and xbox 360 games for 85 bucks.

 

After that guy tells me that he has even more stuff to pull out and to stop by tomorrow. As what time, he says maybe 11 or 12 since he doesn't like to get up early(then realize all the pot paraphernalia and say ooohhhhh) so I say ok I'll see him tomorrow. Head back there and pick up the genesis stuff, ps3 games, and 5 full bins of thomas the train stuff(for flipping purposes) for another 85 bucks. So $170 for everything.

Can make that and more on just the thomas stuff. Hope you guys enjoyed the long story

Final Fantasy 3 is probably in my top 5 games of all time, so I would have to get the deal of a lifetime to get that game out of my

collection. Dragonball is definitely something I would trade though

So I was going through my photos and I came across some of my "lost finds". These are things that I haven't posted yet and YES, the dates are correct...

 

7-30-12

 

This stuff was all from the same sale. I think I paid $26 total. The DVDs and games were $1 each, but discounted if you bought more. I think they ended up being 40-45 cents each or something after their bulk discount. A lot of the DVDS were still brand new/sealed

The DS games were $5 each and are complete (all except White had unused CN codes). Strategy guide was $2 and the DVDs and Medal of Honor were a buck each.

I'm going to stop posting most of my non gaming stuff. It has been slim pickings lately and I can't give away all my secrets. But at this same sale I bought 4 items that will net $110-$130 if sold. ;)

I actually picked up 2 of those furby's(black and white ones) in box for 10 bucks a pop of craigslist earlier this year. Lady said she had them in her closet for years. If I had something like that in my closet and I had multiple kids, those things would have been open in less then 5 minutes.

Yeah being in NY, we also have to wait until late spring at the earliest usually, before we have any good sales. Love to see other peoples finds in the warmer states while I wait...

Picked this up last summer, ps1 games were 1 dollar each, ps2, wii and xbox games were 2 each, and I think 360 and ps3 were 3 each but nothing of note from what I saw so didn't get any of those. Packaged everything for  40 or 45 bucks if I remember right. Not a great deal, but nice games to add to the collection.

Paid $2 for these junk games. (They wanted 25 cents each, but the disc ones were wrecked.)

Paid $10 total

 

I knew battlefront 2 had good value on xbox. I'm not sure what the cable is for though.

I'm skipping over some non gaming stuff.

 

I paid $8 for the guides as well as a copy of Assassin's Creed 3 (that was from my library) from a little kid. I know AC3 was "borrowed indefinitely", so I returned it to the library. AC3 not pictured

Spent $25 today on a white Wii with hookups and two controllers, as well as COD World at War, Pinball Hall of Fame, Star Wars the Force Unleashed, and Madden 08. Also got a disc-only copy of Wii Sports.

 

Other pickups for another $10 were Jak and Daxter Precursor Legacy, Yager, Destroy All Humans, and Halo Combat Evolved. Also got empty cases of Halo 2 and Wii Play for free.
