Started a new job this week, so no more Thursday and Friday sales for me! That said, this isn't a bad haul for one day
. Everything was found in the neighborhood across the street from mine, which is where I've previously found the CIB Spider-Man Web of Fire and lots of other good stuff. As usual, sales didn't disappoint.
Sega Dreamcast Carrying Bag
NES Game Case w/ the following games:
Bill Elliott's NASCAR Challenge
Donkey Kong Classics
Super Mario Bros. / Duck Hunt
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
Pokemon Crystal Version
Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness
Gameshark Advance SP
Ugly Mario doll: $0.50
Wireless Logitech USB Mouse w/ Zip-up pouch: $0.50
Can't argue with those NES games at that price, and the Dreamcast bag is nice to have in my collection. Found the Pokemon stuff at a sale that I'd been to the previous year. I recognized the house and all, but off to the side of their garage there was a table full of DVD cases, so I had to go take a look. Tons of PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube stuff, but nothing super interesting. Went into the garage and found a crate of Game Boy stuff, but all at pretty high prices. Who charges $40 for an SP at a garage sale? Picked out $15 of stuff and offered $10.

Yeah, it's a lot to spend, but I know I'll be able to make my money back selling what I have already. Elmo, Powerpuff Girls, and Command and Conquer were all missing from my collection. There were a bunch of other PS1 and PS2 games, but they were all pretty scratched up. Grabbed Crash and Kingdom Hearts and said I'd take the N64 if they threw them in, and of course they accepted.
They also had a bunch of Pokemon plushes, as well as big Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles figures, but they were being sold by a different family at the sale, so I couldn't throw them in to the $60 deal too. Oh well.
I hit another sale that told me to come back later in the afternoon when they'd have more things out. She specifically mentioned an Atari Jaguar, and I don't have one of those yet, so I definitely came back.
Pokemon Ruby Version: $5
Sonic The Hedgehog 2: $1

Not only was there a complete Jaguar and a bunch of CIB games, but a Genesis too! We agreed on $35, but I had to run to the bank for more cash. On the way back from the bank I noticed a couple other sales, went and found Pokemon Ruby and Sonic 2! Now the only GBA Pokemon game I need is LeafGreen. The kid selling Ruby also had two SPs for $10 each, but they both had really bad, jittery screens, so I passed on em.
After picking up all the Genesis and Jaguar stuff, I went home to give it a quick test and just could not get the Genesis to power up, I tried 3 different plugs and nothing. So I went back and asked for $5, bringing the package down to $30 total, which I think is still pretty good for the bundle.
