How did you know it was from my HTC? Is there an image properties thing on them? :shock:

 Slowdive don't get technology and all the pics I post are from a HTC One.  I've been taking quite a few pics and the HTC pics have a certain look to me.  You and anyone who is interested should check out my nature pics in my gallery.  There are only 15 to 20 photos in the gallery so far. It's not a yard sale find but this is where I enjoy sharing.  So....here is an amazing nature find this week at work taken from my HTC One.

Here is the link to my CAG nature gallery.  http://www.cheapassg...ronman8-nature/.  I have a few more I might post of them.  Comments are welcomed and appreciated in my gallery. 

 

BTW  the pic of the inmate on your phone was some messed up stuff.  I followed your link to SD and can see why you were a little freaked out.

Samsung DVD Player, Gameboy Advance SP, Yoshi's Island, Pokémon, Super Old MP3 Player, TI-83 Calculator, Brand New Audio Headphones, Nautica Watch, Emporio Armani Sunglasses, Conair Hair Straightener

All for $20. The gameboy is silver, 2 gameboy games are real, and there was a flash cart in the sp. I don't know anything about the flash cart. Anyway the guy wouldn't go lower. I'm not sure how I did so please let me know if I paid too much. I'm still learning what a decent or good price on stuff when go to these yard sales.

You did a fine job with that pickup. Sell the TI 83 to pay for the whole lot. Gameboy advance sp worth at least 40.

You need a cool punisher avatar if your gonna be posting. Just a thought.

Slowdive, If you are interested, I'm still liquidating my nes collection so let me know if you are looking for something. I have about 650 nes games left.

Doh! Now I feel like a chump. 650, I think I only have about 400.  I think I will keep my games form my childhood out of the collection and maybe have the only? 100% thrift and yard sale collated collection...

 

 

Oh yeah iornman that was a weird problem. It seems ok after the wipe and I now have everything encrypted. I think it was a corrupted gamestop app, but that is just a guess.

That FF Legend 2 reminded me how jealous I am of my brother right now. The other week he picked up FF Legend, FF Legend 2, and Legend 3 all CiB for $1 each (in addition to a bunch of other $1 CiB Gameboy games). I think the fact that I didn't sucker punch him and make off with the lot while visiting the other week speaks volumes about how good of a brother I am.

While I usually don't make pre-sale deals, I ended up coming out really well on this one. Saw an ad on the local forums for a yard sale that was going to sell skylanders. I emailed the lady and really wanted to pick up a few for my son since his birthday is in a couple weeks. 
 
Initially she was looking for $100 but I was able to talk her down to $75. So in the lot Here's what I ended up with:
 
Hoot Loop
Free Ranger
Night Shift
Fire Kraken
Magna Charge
Rattle Shake
Grilla Drilla
Tower of Time Level
Thumpling
Slobber Tooth
Zoo Lou
Roller Brawl
Jolly Bumble Blast
Pop Thorn
Scorp
Sky Diamond Item
Battle Hammer
 
Pretty good deal and there were only a couple that were extras!

Not yardsale related by toys r us has a clearance sell. This what i picked up after the blue label 80%

 

ghostbusters janine firehouse $19.98 -after 80%  $5.99

Mario vs donkey kong $30 - $9.00 (not sure if this is good, kinda remind me of those old small donkey kong/pac man games from the 80's.)

 

lego batman ds with joker  $30  - $6

Star wars 3 ds with fett $30- $6

mickey 2 wii remote with red light $20 - $4

xbox 360 batarang $50 - $10!!! (A nice cheap controller for xbox and pc) Yes, its wired, but can be use on pc. A true batman fan should get this.

 

Level up ottoman $25 - $5  ($5 why not? A ottoman to storage my games)

 

There are 3 more batarang controllers for xbox 360 and 1 level up ottoman. The funny thing is that two days before i checked and there were no batarang controllers. They have lots of star wars with fett package. Even the employee laugh when he saw by the register the same game for $19.99 on the endcaps. I was thinking about grabbing the controllers for others here with no profit made, but pretty sure shipping would kill the deal for most cag here.

 

Sucks that i cant get starfox, but not a bad pickup considering my area gets picked clean.

Any CAG here in the gaithersburg/ rockville area? Want grab lunch? I also have some old game guides i was thinking of throwing away.

I'm right there with you! I'd say that 85-90% came from yard sales. I remember buying Little Samson from a yard sale and gave $35 for it. I was a little disappointed about spending so much but now it's a pretty pricey title.

Was fun looking these up.  Punisher War Journal was one of my favorite series when it came out.  I bought and still have multiple copies of #1 and the Wolverine appearances.

If I was that guy I'd choose #3 or #1

They look tight ;)

Of course I choose wolverine first, I mean come on, he's sexy! But I forget where I am, a forum mainly dominated by males who love Giada :whee: :lol:

Good deals today.

 

First sale I went to, this lady had 10 19" 720p HDTVs. All for $25 each. They all had broken DVD players inside of them but they worked fine otherwise. The lady said it was her dads and not sure why he was only asking $25 for each one. I bought 2 of them for $45. One for me, and I'm selling one to my sister since she wants a tv for her college dorm.

 

JBL135 speakers were $10. 

 

I got a pretty big plug in Hockey table, along with a foldable pingpong tabletop for $25. Thank God I have a station wagon lol.

IDK, Nigella is pretty sexy too with her accent and curves.

 

 

 

Today it a total bust (pun intended)...I bought a box of biore for 50 cents. Already 80+ degrees. I think I am done for the day. :(

 

 

I hope you were talking about the chick from the food network, or I just over shared why I am not allowed anywhere near the Food Network premises. LOL

I did well today but only thanks to two sales. Two of the first 4 sales I went to I scored at. Didn't score again all day, ha ha. I went to at least 30 sales too. I don't think they were picked over, people kept telling me I was the first one there, just think they didn't have anything.

 

Anyway, second sale I went to, the guy had a big box of records. I picked out a few nice ones (Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Purple Rain, Huey Lewis and the News Sports) but I then asked about old games. He said he might have a couple real old ones in a box right there in the garage. He found it in about 30 seconds and pulled out Star Fox (SNES) with the manual and Final Fantasy II (SNES). Said $1.00 each so with the records I paid $5.00.

 

Then a couple sales later a lady had a huge box of PS2/PS1 games but she wanted $8.00 each for PS2 and $5.00 each for PS1. Seemed high but I managed to find a pair I wanted and talked her to $8.00 for the pair. They were Time Crisis 3 complete in the big box for PS2 and Chocobo Racing for PS1.

 

That was it, but Chocobo/Time Crisis/FF2 are a bit pricey and I didn't have them so I'll call it a good day.

Edit: Nevermind, I had Time Crisis 3 already, ha ha. That's okay, I didn't have a guncon or the bundle so its still cool.

Today I purchased:

 

Champions of Norrath PS2 (Greatest Hits) for $2 (Was marked $4)

 

A glittery TI-83 for $3 (Marked $5). It wouldn't turn on but the batteries inside had an expiration of 2010 and the guy said that it hadn't been used in like, eight years. I just stood there looking unsure until he lowered the price. For $3 I figure it's okay even if it ends up not working, and hey, it's literally sparkly. I didn't even know that they made them like that.

 

A Nine Inch Nails CD for .50 and a Rudolph Hallmark ornament for .25.

 

 

I really want to find a working Gameboy unit. A few weeks back I bought a baggie full of Gameboy Color/Advance games from some estate sale, but I don't have anything that plays them. Been looking everywhere I go, but so far no dice. I also ask at every sale I go to whether they have video games like I have seen others on this board suggest, but no luck so far.

Also got this earlier and it may possibly be my best pick up of the year. This here is some vintage Luxman audio equipment. After doing a little research on eBay and AVForums, these are worth close to few hundred dollars altogether, if they work. So far I have plugged them in and they turn on. No problems with the bulbs.

 

These were very high end back in the early 2000s. They were popular in Japan and had limited production in the US.

 

I paid $20 for them.

Got Spyro greatest hits edition for $.50 the lady was reluctant to sell it as it was part of a PS/1 slim bundle for $30 that included about two or three controllers a memory card , the cord, obviously the PS/1 slim and pretty much every Spyro game plus one crash bandicoot game ( not one of the main entries). But since I only asked for one game she said it was fine to sell one game separately. The game has the manual and everything the case and the disc are both in great condition there are no scratches on the disc. Not a Greathall for today but it's something to go with the four dollar PlayStation one that I bought a couple of weeks ago

I guess I should have specified..."I want to find and pay $1 for a GBC or GBA". I am cheap after all. I'll just keep looking, it'll give me a meta-goal. Thanks for the offer though!

The $20 bag i picked up with the samsung dvd player, ti 83, etc. had a muVo TX FM 512 Mb. Looks in good condition besides a large scratch on the display glass. The works, but I have never seen or heard of it before. Anyone know anything about this mp3 player? It also has a mic recorder and fm radio. I dont know how to use the radio. What is the cost of this thing?

Cool stuff. Hook 2 of those huge old school speakers to it with a turntable and your in business. I found a vintage radio myself today. Wait till you see mine. When I say vintage I mean super old. I'll post a pic when I have time. Like your garage sale wagon also. Is that you daily driver? Bet it helps you get better deals as people figure you have a big family to support. Sometimes I think my vehicle works against me. They see a nice car and figure they can charge more. Today was a old school day for me. I also ran into Stonewall Jackson in the form of a house wife. I still came out on top.
