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!

So uh...is there any method to this or just killing a bunch of zombies around town until you find one?

^^ ?? do you mean finding sales?  I just check craigslist.

 

I can't wait to see if anyone here finds some rare amiibos for $1 a piece :)

I dont bother with Craigslist sales unless theyre on the way. If they can work CL then they probably want "what it goes for on Ebay". I do best driving around looking for signs and unadvertised sales.

I can't stand driving around aimlessly though.  I'll make up a list using craigslist and gsalr and then if I see a sign, I'll stop there too.

out of curiosity, are there any recommended sites to go to that people tend to post info for their yard/garage sales?  i mainly use craigslist since people tend to use it around here but any other sites would help.  don't want to miss out on something i didn't know about, you know?

This site pretty much just gathers information about sales listed on CL, local newspaper or any other ways of advertising.  Also, if you have any local freebie magazines or monthlies, sometimes they will have advertisements.

Oh man, I am getting super itchy for yard sale season to start. Usually there are a least a few around Baltimore during the winter, but all this ice and snow has really been killing things.

Same here. It was nice to not have to do it for a few months, but now I'm kind of excited for it to start up again in 2 or 3 months. I really need to spend some time sorting and unloading some more stuff I got last year. I want to hopefully try and clean house before this year starts new.

I'm looking forward to the season but it won't be a great one for me.... I just got a new schedule where I work 11-8 Thursday-Monday. 12:30 was bad enough, but there's another hour and a half off of my garage sale time. I'll only have 2-2.5 hours to go out that means. Likely means more days where I find very little.

Eh, I'm pretty much looking at a 11am time limit on my end, too. The little one has a playgroup then and I had to cut a deal.

I'm going to cut down on time out and how much I pick up this year.  I also need to unload some stuff before the season starts.  A trade page is starting to sound like a good idea.

I'm hoping my 5-11pm work schedule stays the same :)

 

This will be my first yard sale season without having school in the way since I graduated. Should be able to do a lot more shopping this time.

 

What I hope to find this year...

 

$200 PS4 (lol)

Decent N64 games

Limited edition N64 systems

Xbox One games

Cheap PS3 that reads discs, mine doesn't

Upgrades for my home theatre system

One of my only goals for this yard sale season is a copy of Mutant League Hockey (or if someone else finds one here ;)) I've been looking for that one for a very long time. My other hope is $1 pokemon DVDs.

Last year I got a lot of DVDs and CDs and took them to Hastings and got some stellar trade credit with some of the promos they had. Think I turned $50 into around $350ish and still kept a bunch of stuff.

Good luck to you all this season!

OH GOD YES. It's been so long.

I recently had to leave one I joined on Facebook, it was getting too irritating. Too many people trying to resell amiibos and other stuff that just came out and bashing people who pick up stuff cheap at yard sales. And don't even get me started on the relentless fanboy squeeing,and this coming from an ardent fanboy himself.

Now I'll probably look for last gen Rock Band instruments if they work with RB4

 

I saw so many last summer

I don't do social media.  I was thinking set up a page on CAG.  I would take most of it to the local game store but they want to give you nothing for it, even if it's in trade.

Here's the stuff from last Sunday, paid $7.00 for everything. The N64 is missing the pak cap and the controller's stick is messed up.

Not bad... the expansion pak alone is worth $25, last time I checked. You can also swap that controller shell with a more common color that has a better stick.
I think Ultimate Tenkaichi has a bit of value, too.

First yard sale of the year.  Only one and it was pretty small, but I got all this for $0.50.

They are genuine and they look like they are either unused or very lightly used.  You can never have enough headphones!

Used earbuds from a random stranger. That just seems like something I would never want near my ear.
