I picked up a phat PS2 this morning for 9.99.  It plays both kinds of PS2 discs, but PS1 and DVDs are a no-go, so I'll probably be taking it back tomorrow.

 

I also found Pokemon Silver gameboy at the same store for 2.99.  Battery was dead, but that was a 5 minute job to swap.

Damn I'm on a roll. Picked up 4 more N64 games. Looks like my neighbors are donating their N64 games :)

Finally found something good this year to post about, picked up the boxed 1978 Simon (box is beat up, but unit is nice and fully functional) for $6, the original Star Wars Trilogy DVD (widescreen) box set for $15 (not the best deal I've seen, but good to me), but the best find was one of my favorite games of all time, FoA, just sitting there (near) complete for $2.

Seriously I got giddy when I saw that box art on the shelf, so much nostalgia (even if it is the Mac version).

 

Here is my soon to be eBay pic, really don't want to sell it, but I don't collect PC / Mac games.  Having fun thumbing through the paper materials at least.

I kept missing GTA V at Amazon Warehouse.  Dropped some stuff off at Goodwill they gave me a 25% off coupon, I told myself they had a GTA V for Xbone and went inside, nope only PS4 version.. . . . .wait what???  $30 plus tax. Target salvage, broken case but everything else was mint and included the bonus million bucks.

Managed to get out today. Found a Keurig B60 for $7.99, works great, I usually just buy them when their cheap as my mother is always looking for them. Also picked up another boombox, nice Panasonic model. Did also get a Purple Game Boy Color for $9.99, only thing of note gaming related for the day.

 

Forgot pictures, threads boring without pics. I did also forget to post my NES and Game Gear finds from last week. Got the NES games for $3.99 each and all 3 Game Gear games for $3.99.

I found a Gameboy  this week also.  Mine is the OG model.  Works perfect and after 25% off it was under $5.  I still own my original, so this makes two.  Had to search hard for this as it was hidden behind a bunch of toys.

The Pok√©mon game is from my small collection.  This is all I could find at the current time.  I know I have a few more hanging around the house.

Spoiler

 

Stopped by another thrift later on my way home the same day and found this stuff.  Game and CD were $1.99 each.  Clash of Titans game looks like crap, but for $2 I'll give it a try.  Wanted the move gun to try with the Resident Evil arcade shooters I got free with plus a bit ago.  $3.99 for the gun.

I found Nascracing 2003 season for PC today 2.99.

Probably not gonna get to do alot of thrifting this week with the Blizzard of 2015 in the Northeast(supposed to get 2-3 feet of snow), but here's some live thrifting from this passed week if you guys want to check it out, or are stuck in the house like me the next few days.

Like, sub, comment and all that fun stuff, and stay safe if you are in the northeast like I am.

Aren't you a mailman? What happened to wether rain, sleet, hail or 3 feet of snow? Put those tire chains on and get that crap delivered. Seriously, stay safe during that nasty storm.

Hey I'd be out there, but they've officially closed down all the post offices in my area. They've shut down all the major roads, and no one is allowed out on the streets past 11pm or you get a fine, as per our politicians

Bought this for $5 as a conversation piece, then checked it up online and realized it was worth a few bucks, so it probably won't stay in my collection for too long. Good for a laugh, though.

I remember when that first came out in the early 90s.  As soon as I saw it, the song from the commercial popped into my head. :lol:

Got quite a bit of things through this month. Been frequenting my local Goodwill in town a lot, plus The Salvation Army... and over the past week I've been going to the Spartanburg Flea Market. Nothing entirely spectacular, but I scored this kick-ass Street Fighter II poster circa 1993, mostly unopened with the Kay-Bee Toys sticker. Best of all, I only paid $1 for it, so I was quite astounded to find this! My Salvation Army is kind of money-hungry. $4.99 for OutRun 2006 for the PSP is too much from a thrift store shopper's standpoint.

 

Pic of the SF2 poster (I don't think this one is too common):

Just found this (2015) thread. Nice finds people!

 

I guess I'll make my first "finds" post of 2015...

 

$1 each

 

Cropped out my hand and some of the titles. The RPGs were a no brainer, the others I picked up because they are either uncommon or have a decent value.

Oooo, that's a really nice little lot of Wii games there. Castle of Shikigami 3 is one of the things I'd love to find on one my thrift runs.

Thanks! Yeah, I don't remeber ever seeing that game or valhalla knights at retail (but I also never had a wii untilt last year and I haven't set it up yet). ;)

 

I wanted to set up my wii today, but my computer keeps crashing. I think it is firefox/vista 64 related, but I am working on it right now.
