Actually got some cool stuff today, at one sale for .50 each I got

-Lufia and the Fortress of Doom SNES Boxed (box is in ROUGH shape)
-Illusion of Gaia SNES Boxed (Box is pretty nice :)
-Jeopardy SNES Boxed
-UN Squadron SNES Boxed

Really happy to find those. And I also drove past a store called "Richters Autobody" and though to myself that it was a sign that I was going to find some castlevania stuff. Sure enough, next sale I found Castlevania: Circle of the Moon for GBA for a buck :)

Not many sales today, but I did find a few old games at one of them. Paid $5 for these, and they all work.

Decent day for me, only went to about 4 sales

First Stop: picked up a gameboy color + super mario bros delux for $3

Second Stop: Picked up everything else pictured. I walked in and some dude in his 50's was walking out with a box of N64/sega/gameboy games :cry: but managed to still find these. Paid $30 for everything...

yupp!!

I have started emailing people who post yard sales on craigslist a couple of days before to ask if they have games for sale. That's how I found this one (games wasn't even on the sale ad), I would recommend doing this as you can eliminate numerous stops.

I used to try that, would always backfire because then they would update their CL ad saying that they have video games.

ie, now some jackass is knocking on their door at 6AM asking about the video games.

Yet another reason to yard sale "off the grid", never look at craigslist for sales, just wing it and ask at every sale for video games.

Unless you're going on an "off day" when your area doesn't normally have yard sales. That day for me is Friday, which if I decide to go, I check craigslist because there's usually 5 sales in a 20 mile radius.

I feel the same. 20 sales and nothing today. My finds are few and far between, but I feel like the good finds are worth it.

(Like my recent pick up of a top loader NES with 16 games for $20)

3 sales today, 2 had games, walked out with nothing.

First sale: No games.

Second sale had 2 PS1s and an :xbox:. Passed on the PS1s. Asked for :xbox: pricing, got quoted at $40, mom comes out and wants $50. No thanks. Look around some more and find a Yellow GBC with Kirby Mass Attack, an N64 controller, and 2 NES controllers. I get a quote on that, mom wants $30. I countered at $5 and $10 but she wouldn't budge. Walked away.

Sale 3 had a modded :xbox: and a lot of games and some DDR pads. I see KOTOR 2 in the pile and find out the Xbox is modded, but the lady says I have to buy everything. So I was like ok how much, she said $30 at first but then her bf comes by to correct the pricing, ends up asking for $130...hahaha no. BTW, the KOTOR 2 disc was missing.

WHY DO THESE TEARS COME AT NIGHT

This weekend there was an annual festival at a nearby town, always plenty of yard sales on the highway into town and in the surrounding communities. I had Friday off so I was actually able to go before the weekend.

The CDs were $1 each and the DVDs were $2 each. The Movie replaces my worn out copy I got at a pawn shop. Didn't get to buy it new before it went OOP and this one is near mint. Bah weep granah weep nini bong!

Various soundtracks $2 each. Lady would not budge on price, but I was interested because some soundtracks are no longer in print. These, apparently, are all duds. Oh well, another excuse to upgrade to a smart phone.

After hitting roughly 20 sales and actually making it into town, the weather started making a turn for the worse. The civil defense alarm had gone off once already and after a few sprinkles and a few booms of thunder, everyone went back to saleing. Then I found these:

I was expecting to pay at least $5 each for the Star Wars soundtracks, and I would have paid it. I ask how much for them and the copy of Final Doom and the lady running the sale says "I dunno, $5 for everything?". I had the money in her hand before she had a chance to change her mind. Risk was an additional $2 for a grand total of $7 for everything pictured. As I was handing the money over the civil defense alarm goes off again, this time they meant business. The tent holding the sale started bucking from the wind and rain started pouring down immediatley. Ran to the truck and headed for home. This was probably one of the strongest storms we had all year. Needless to say my Friday sales were done.

Saturday morning let me hit newer sales in the same area and allowed me to skip the stuff I had already seen.

These items are from various sales. The single DVDs were $1 each, 3rd Rock from the Sun S2 was $3, Dark Sector and Need for Speed Undercover (not pictured, nephew snagged it) were $5 each. The CDs were $.50 each! Unfortunatly someone else just beat me to them, grabbing most of the prime stuff. The reason I just missed out on the better CDs was because I was haggling with some lady on this next find:

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

NES with games, controllers and zapper for $10. This was roughly noon in an area set up for vendors with plenty of people walking around so I was very supprised that this was still there, especially at that price! Yet I hadn't really haggled with anyone so far that day, so for some reason I felt this was the one to do it on. It was tagged at $10 and I offered $7, she looks at me and says "I'll take ten". At that point I felt embarrassed that I had even tried to haggle, especially in offering only $3 less than asking price. It didn't include a power supply but I had found one at GW a day before for $2.

Not a bad weekend.

My father wanted to buy the Vizio All in one at Compusa this morning so I went ahead of him as there was an advertised yard sale down the street. The yard sale stunk (it was a thrift store) but I did find a few others. I noticed a crate of games and a SNES. The price was $40 and the lady would not budge. Upon further inspection I saw Super Mario RPG and Secret of Mana. I was Sold at that point.

Also included were 2 copies of Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario World, Ranma 1/2 Hard Battle, 2 copies of Mortal Kombat 1, Mega Man X, Super Street Fighter 2, Super Smash TV, a few sports games, and others.

The Mario RPG sticker has wear and may sell it along with a copy of DKC and MK to come out on top on the lot.
