Where can I get an NES for less than $50 in Boston?

Just flew home to Boston for the holidays, and my sister and I are wanting to fire up the old NES. Unfortunately, I brought my top loader with me to LA and left it there. I still have a box of games in my dad's basement, but I have no console.

Does anyone know of any good used video game stores that sell old NES systems for under $50? Craigslist has been a total dud, too. I used to know a few good spots to try when I lived here, but I'm not sure anymore.

Any help is super appreciated! We have to get our Zelda/World Class Track Meet on somehow.

Honestly - there should be 100's on craigslist. Probably half by the stores that constantly advertise.

If you are looking for stores in Boston area there is one guy in Winthrop (like 10 min from Logan) and Benny Blanco is (or was) on the Lynnway Flea Market (he might be in Harvard Sq. now or something. Saw people fighting on craigslist). There is also AC's Cards and Games in Revere, but I haven't been in there since the Dreamcast came out.

Let me know if you can't find one. I'll be back to Boston (Winthrop actually) Tuesday morning and I'm sure I have an extra one in my closet in my house somewhere I'd sell.

Theres a store on rt9 in framingham that probably has it. I cant remember the name of the store or even if its still open but its an option. Place is a buyers nigthmare though. Every item is way behind the counter and you have to ask for prices and if they even have it. If you really want to travel theres a store on rt9 in ware thats got them all over the place. I think its called gamers revolution. Lots of stuff on display too.
