EDIT: Just to show how far behind I am...I still have to post the rest of my finds (and the pics aren't even done yet)!


I made it to early September. I think my last sale of the year was the first weekend of November. I hate getting behind but I just have too much other stuff demanding my time. Hell, I'm not even sure I know where most of the stuff I picked up is stashed.

Went to a family yard sale today that they hold every year, of course it was in a building since this is indiana. Found a silver dvd case marked for a dollar that said 10+ gamecube games on it but was taped shut so I couldn't look at the games. Figured eh it's a buck, glad I got it there were 17 games total

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2
Pikmin
Super Mario Strikers
Super Smash Brothers
Mario Superstar baseball
Mario Power Tennis
Lego Star Wars
Pitfall the Last Expedition
Pac Man World 2
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3
Starfox Adventures
Shrek 2
Auto Modellista
Rocket Power Beach Bandits
Fifa 07 Soccer
NCAA 2003
MVP Baseball 2004

Sure it's just the disc only but every disc looks brand new, not even a finger smudge on it. About a nickel a game, can't complain.

I hate people that get rid of the cases, always keep the cases, but for that price it doesn't matter, I'll find the cases later, nice find

I think my N64 is on its last legs so I despise you for such a great find.

I know that feel. I work every weekend, so it's been a long time since I've been to a yard sale. I'm looking for something too. The pawnshops around here don't have any nice PSPs and no luck on CL, yard sales are the last hope.

April is cruel . . . it won't be until May (by me) until sales really get rolling.

Getting closer but the wait is killing me.

Amazing find August. I didn't even know that bundle existed. N64 games are number 1 on my list when going out, and to keep, not sell.

Jealous of yall that have yard sales right now, still too cold here.

Yea, man. The guy actually didn't have a single game or system out in his sale. I asked him if he had any games, then he said his kids might have some games. I waited for his wife to go inside and talk to her kids. I was talking to him and he asked me what game system was my favorite. I told him I preferred retro stuff, and he told me they used to have a "Pikachu N64" that was probably in the attic. His wife came out with some crappy Xbox 360 and Wii games. Luckily he asked her if she remembered the old Pikachu N64 that they had and she told him she knew where it was. I just smiled and said "I'd love to purchase that if you'd be willing to sell it."

Holy Pikachu! Sweet find on the 64 bundle. My daughters would freak if I brought that home. Try to resist selling this one, I have a feeling it is only going to increase in value.

This SNOW needs to melt. I've got a major sale itch that thrift stores won't cure.

Yea , I noticed that Pikachu bundle is worth a fairly lofty price on the secondary market, regardless of the fact it looks good to boot.

I had the find of a lifetime last year with PS1 games and have kept/sold/traded some since then. But I don't know why I'm so attached to N64 games/bundles (probably nostalgia), I can't sell them and will probably hang it up and retire if I ever find a CIB gold N64 system in the wild.

Back on topic, I finally have two sales advertised around here so far on Saturday, time to get back in the saddle.

A local middle school near me is having a supposed "huge" rummage sale tomorrow. Hopefully I can find something good. Then Flea Market for the first time this year on sunday :)

sorry for the dumb question, but there was a gold n64 console? FYI- never play n64. is the gold n64 rare or something?
Love the nes and snes back in the day.

We just got just under two feet of snow today but I have my first "yard sale"/Church Sale of the year tomorrow! After a long winter of no yard sales I am going to find it impossible to sleep tonight from excitement. After all this I probably won't find anything (didn't at the same sale last year) but it at least means the season has started!

People are starting to have "indoor yard sales" around here but only one sale doesn't make it worth the trip. Still about a month and a half away from regular sales around here and the fleamarket just doesn't cut it, the hunt is part of the fun.

I did however have a good find at Game X-change today; a cart only copy of Herzog Zwei for $3.95 in the common games section. I think the only reason it slipped by is because the price tag read "Herzog ZweL". Pretty happy, been looking to knock this one off my list for awhile.

Eh the indoor yard sales around me are normally overpriced crap, people post the same pictures every week with a small list of items and prices and "Email for viewing" which makes it the same as buying anything off Craigslist.

Me I like the pulling up to someones house and rummaging through 30 boxes and the adrenaline rush of finding that awesome deal. I actually had a T-Shirt made on Vista Print that I wear to yard sales that lists the things I am interested in (like the list they pass out on American Pickers) so if they didn't out it out at the yard sale sometimes they run in to grab stuff without me even having to ask!

The church and community sales are really up there for me though, sometimes you can get 30 or 40 people all set up at them so you get that many chances of finding something without having to drive to and from.

I still have until May really before they begin to pick up here in NY. Have quite the itch to get out and go though. Plan on getting Fridays off this summer from work as that seems to be the big day for them in this area. Don't miss out on too much when you don't go on Saturdays.

Nothing at that "huge" rummage sale. Apparently there was an early bird special where you could pay $2 and get in an hour early. Some dude came in bought all the video game stuff. The lady said he bought a bunch of boxed N64 games, a system and controllers :(

Only one sale today, about a month to go before the season really starts up. Managed to snag:
- N64 system with Mario Kart, Ocarina of Time, and Star Wars Racer for $3.
- Mike Tyson's Punch & Mario Bros. 2 for NES for $0.50 each.
- $30 worth of CD's & DVD's for trading for $7.

Similar to my rummage sale I went to. Guy who was friends with one of the people running it lined up at 7am, saw him walking out with 50+ NIB LEGO sets for 25c each and two boxes full of video games.
