That's better than my 8:30 to 8:30 M-F schedule. I do take the occasional day off though. You learn to live for Saturday sales and skip the Friday sales which will already be picked over. You can also hit early Friday morning sales if your commute isn't far.

Placeholder for old links


Way to get in early this year. The links never were posted last year and the creator of the thread never posted any finds.

Yeah and we'll be getting hoverboards this year.... kidding

 

 

Also I'm looking for a new job now, maybe I'll have something that starts later in the day, which would be nice.

Excited to start yard-saling for real this summer, went out a few times last year and got an awesome gamecube lot, but now that I have fridays off and will be used to getting up at 6am, I should be able to find A LOT more!

Went to my first moving sale of the year this morning. It was indoors, not everything was for sale, you had to actually look for the items with price tags. I heard "oh thats not for sale" about 4 times. Only 2 things of interest but passed on both, $40 big minifridge/ $40 slim PS2 with cables and 8 sports games.

First yard sale purchase of 2015, got the dbz budokai hd collection for ps3 for a measly quarter. No case or manual.and its a little bit scratched up, but it's a blu ray disc so I'm betting it will work.

I just accepted a job that goes for 5-10pm, so it looks like I'll be going to yard sales during the week again, unless I decided to go for a 2nd job during the day...

How much did you pay for Earthbound?

Nice find! Saw somebody trading in Earthbound and the guide at 2nd & Charles when I was there the other day. They had the game value at $150 and usually offer 40% of that in trade or 20% or so in cash. When I get a copy it's definitely not going to be traded to a 2nd hand store.

This was an unadvertised online yard sale purchase (thank you Facebook) - saw a woman selling Pokemon videos and I asked if there were any games hidden among the VHS stacks. Apparently there was - she sent me a list, and I picked the following items up for $60. Highlights included Link To the Past/Four Swords, Luigi's Mansion, and the Wavebird Controller. Going to keep a few choice items, and flip the rest. 

 

Not my greatest find, but little pick ups like this will hold me over until the real yard sale season starts.

I lagged it, here's what I found during the yard-sales and from my south of the border venture!

Mexico finds: First pic games for $300 pesos (equals roughly $15.00) second pic $150 pesos (equals $7.50???). Apparently, Super Mario+all stars is pretty common over there lol! The Wave Birds worked perfectly too (sadly no adapters) :(

Yard sale finds: $15.00 for the teal N64 (it came with expansion pak). $25.00 for the second pic stuff, the Pokemon XD game was a freebie because, it came with the console without me knowing it lol! Paid $20.00 for the 3rd pic stuff ( I can't resist boxed N64 stuff). $40.00 for the DS and SNES stuff, mainly got it for the Snes games.

Finally hit a decent score today. Hit up an estate sale that mentioned atari stuff. I roll up around 8am and right in the middle of the living room are three boxes of dusty consoles. I ask how much for everything and the guy hits me with $50. There was a sweet Jack Daniels lamp. So I counter 50 for everything with the lamp. He counters $60 for eveverything and I take it. Still going through the boxes but here's what I have so far:

Yellowed SNES (working, just needs a bit of cleaning)
SNES Ascii Pad and regular pad

4 Atari 2600s, 2 regular and 2 juniors w/ 8-10 common games. Also came with a ton of controllers and a couple of power sources and some AV cables.
Nintendo 64 w/ controllers. doesn't have power cord but I might have a spare
Original Xbox console, no AV/power
Original NES w/ mario duck hunt and controller, untested but I'll remedy that soon. Pretty discolored but hopefully it works
Original Playstation console, no cords
Rise 2 Resurrection for PS1 complete

All told I think I did pretty well, especially if everything works and I can softmod the OG Xbox.

Two dollars for a Blu-Ray player is pretty good, right? I mean, it looks like a toy and I can't guarantee it works, but it's Blu-Ray!

This was my only find this weekend. I think it was a great find because, I still didn't own one. The box is pretty beat up but, it was worth it for $20.00 bucks!
