#11529919 2014 Thrift Store Thread - Post your finds here!

Posted by FOnewearl on 15 February 2014 - 08:17 PM

I rarely ever find anything interesting at the thrift store and don't even find much in the way of meh parting gifts even so it was a rather pleasent surprise finding these games at 2.50 each. Before this I want to say the last time I had a good find at the thrift store was about 3 years ago. Parasite Eve is the only game missing it's manual and all of the disks are in mint to near mint condition.

First-Class Mail International = 8.55


That is how much it cost at the post office it should be a little cheaper if you find a means to do so online. If PP doesn't have a FCMI option then I'm guessing you would still get said discount if you do it from the USPS site which you would have to make an account for if you don't already have one.

2 Complete Xbox Games - 2
Xbox With Hookups, 1 Duke & 1 Regular Controller - 3
Marvel Ultimate Alliance (PS2, Complete) & Resident Evil 4 With 2 Playstation systems - 15
Everything Else Pictured And All of The Generic Stuff I Didn't Bother To Include In The Picture (Also Genesis Model 1 x2 & Model 2 x1 With Misc Controllers & Hookups) - 25
Xbox games were a buck each. Xbox system was 10 but offered to do 5 and took 3. IIRC the PS2 slim I got had hookups and a controller and was 10, the fat system I got was marked 3 and IIRC had a controller and A/V cords. The games were 2 each and took 15 for what I got. The last sale had a bunch of random stuff most in the .25 to 1 range. I left a bunch of boring stuff out of the picture for the sake of trying to keep it to one picture. Some stuff was a 2600 AC Adapter - 1, 3 NES hard cases for games for .10 each, x2 Atari Joysticks so many general stuff that I've had in pictures before. I at least wanted to have the games, systems and unique or something I've never ran into and got in the wild in the picture. Came up to 25.90 and we ended up just making it an even 25.

The Game Boy games were at a sale that advertised games for said systems and were 2 each. At another sale I asked about games and the lady brought out what was mostly PS2 with a few Wii games in the mix out that she forgot to bring out, sounded like jr was to sort them out for the yard sale and never did, 2 dollars each again. The Crash games were asking a buck each at a sale that advertised video games. Asked about games and some Atari stuff was brought out to which I offered a buck each for the 3 I got. DS games were out and a buck each, when I asked about games the lady mentioned some Nintendo stuff she had at home, I ended up going back and she was asking $5 for the system and a buck a game which I was happy with since she was nice enought to follow up on bringing and selling. The NES also came with 2 controllers and hookups which I didn't bother to put in the picture but I did want to include the NES in the picture since it's on crack.

Crash Bandicoot Plush - .10
Game Boy, Game Boy Color And 9 Games, Dreamcast Controller & Fishing Rod - 23

4 PC Games (Beyond Atlantis II Looks To Be Complete) - 5
The 2 Last Gen games & controllers were asking price at 2 each for the games and .25 each for the controllers & RF. The Game Boy Color bundle was marked 10 so I offered 20 total for both Game Boy sets. They were thinking a buck or two for each of the Dreamcast items so I offered 3 for both, I'm guessing the controller was never used as it was still in the bag inside the box. Offered 5 for the DS & PS2 game which was marked .75. The PC games were 2 each and I offered 5 for the 4 I got.
Game Boy Games - Game & Watch Collection 2, Some Mary Kate & Ashley Planner game, Super Mario Land 1 & 2. Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Street Fighter II, Super Mario Land & Toy Story.

Fullmetal Alchemist 2: Curse of The Crimson Elixir (No Manual) - 1
All of The Games In Jewel Cases - 4
18 Cart Games - 140
The PS2 game was 2 and took 1. The PS1 Games were a buck each and the 3 Dreamcast games & Dune on The PC were 2 each but when I was gonna pass on them since the Dreamcast games were scratched and could be shot the lady offered to let me have them for .50 each. Jet Grind Radio is actually a sports game. The cart only games were from a sale that advertised having old games and sounded like it was going to be expensive. I remember the guy mentioning Yoshi's Island being worth 25, he also mentioned Pokemon being the same price and TMNT being "expensive" I ended up offering $100 for most of these not knowing what he wanted for each and every one and he ended up countering with 125 then I added in DKL3, SML2, StarFox & Romance of The Three Kingdoms II for 15 more.

Skyrim (360, Manual But No Map) - 5
N64 Stuff (No Styrofoam In The System Box But The Games Are All Complete) - Close To 10
When I asked about games at the first sale of the day I was brought in to look at some games, probably about 50 games between Xbox & Xbox 360. I was only interested in Skyrim and 5 was the asking price. Asked about games at one sale and they had an N64 for sale that they forgot to bring out (this was about an hour after the sale started). I was interested in a few other things and nothing was priced, I offered 10 for everything which was taken. I figured about 7 for the N64 stuff if I had to break it down.
Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings (Card Only) - .50
SNES system With Dr Mario/Tetris But No AC Adapter - 10
This stuff was only pictured separately as I ran out for a CL deal around 11 and ended up going to a yard sale nearby and tripped over a few others of which I found something at 2 of them. The Final Fantasy game was asking price and the SNES was brought out when I asked about games. Wanted 15 but took 10.
