So, went out down my usual couple streets that always pay off, and what do you know. Struck gold again.
Ill put up pictures of my stuff, my brother already took his stuff home.
#1 First score, asked for old games and guy brought out a n64 with expansion pak, 2 off brand and 2 name brand controllers. One of the controllers is the limited edition glow in the dark controller. Only 6 games.. but all good titles. Donkey Kong 64, Yoshis story, oot, mario party 1, diddy kong racing and mario kart. Got all this for $10
#2 A little later we saw some signs, but went into the neighborhood and couldn't find the sale. On the way back to the street I spotted it, made it there and my brother instantly gravitated to the fishing gear. So, I dont know anything about the stuff but he found a shimano trinidad tn-30, which is a deep salt water reel used for big tunas, etc. This is a $400 reel the guy had out at a yard sale, my brother asked for the price and he said $10, he couldnt get his money out fast enough. T
The guy had no idea what he had, someone must of given it to him. He had it on backwards on a snapped pole. Guy was begging us to buy it when he saw us look at it, should easily flip that for $250+
#3 Later we stopped at a sale, I usually ask if they have games but didnt really feel like asking this time as the people there were pretty old, but it turns out they had a teenager who loved games, and was a big trekkie. First they tell us that they threw away boxes of gamecube games recently. Our hearts sank... I asked if the trash had been taken away yet, haha but yeah last monday they tossed it all. Took it to gamestop and they didnt want to buy it (obviously)
I spot some large plastic tubs filled with vhs, I could really use some storage for my games and wanted them. They said theyd do both large storage containers filled with VHS for $2, thought it was a deal and who knows whats mixed in with the VHS right? Well turns out there were some star trek and star wars PC games, I checked out some values of these at home.. its riciculous some are $20 $40 and $50 games. Had $150 worth of PC games I got for $2, which I didnt even know were there or had value lol.
But after that they ask if we like newer games too, they brought out an xbox 360 cib with unused and sealed controller, ask the price... $10 Awesome! Then they say they have another electronics thing I may like.. bring out a roku player CIB, price? $5! Sold. Then they say the kid has more games inside and I could take a look, he let me buy AC 1 which Ive been looking for $5 for it, not a terrible price.
So we left there happy.. oh, and they tossed gameboy advance / games too ><
#4 Not much to tell, we keep going, find a sale with silent hill 3 for $2.
#5 Keep going and to the last sale of the day, we find a supposed flea market reseller getting out of the business. He has a table full of controllers. at least 9 xbox 360 controllers and a few wii. Ive actually been wanting a new controller, so this worked out. The controllers were said to be new but were opened.
Got all this for $41 The controllers as far as I can tell are new, both had packaging, batteries, halo reach download card, little paper in battery pack etc.
Going to keep the wii controller pro and sell my classic controller, sell the new classic controller and keep both reach controllers. Where else am I going to get a new controller for so cheap? Ill keep as a backup if I need another new one in 3 years.
Asked a guy at a sale about games, he asked what system did I want? An awesome sign, lol.
Came out with a SNES 3 controllers, and about 20 games. Also a bunch of random sega games, some sega master, atari, etc.
Asked what he wanted for it.. $5 !!!
Whipped out my wallet before he had a second to think about it and was happily on my way. Gave him my number as he said he knew he had the sega master system as well and would give it to me if he found it. He called about an hour later and had it, made my way back there. He also had all hookups, controllers, etc.
Games were pretty good.
Mario kart, mario world, 2 copies of mario all stars, zelda link to past, rock and roll racing, donkey kong country and some more solid titles I cant remember. Retail on all the SNES games is $180
