I didn't see that another Flea Market thread for 2015 finds was created, sorry if someone beat me to it...

 

 

 

 

I visited our local indoor flea market for the first time. Game selection was crap/overpriced, but I found a couple CDs:

 

 

Afroman - The Good Times -- $1

The Pharcyde - Runnin' Maxi-CD single -- $1

 

I'm always happy to find the CD singles for the rare remixes and B-sides.

I found Super Mario Bros 3, complete for $10 with a copy of Crash Bandicoot: Warped thrown in, the Basketball 2 by Mattel Electronics for $3, and a Star Wars LCD game for $1.  Not a bad day at all.

Hit up a local one I hadn't been to in ages. There were two video game centered stands with really good selections but nothing that stood out. A few others that had random games (mostly new stuff), but I just got an XBox One so I passed. Decent prices for the most part, one guy had quite a few good 360 titles with some PS2 games too that were 2 for $5.

 

Did pick up The Brak Show Season 1 for $5 and Barb Wire for $3 from a guy.

 

Also, overheard a great exchange between a mother and her son when I was browsing one of the video game stands. "No, you don't need Call of Duty." "Why not?" "Because you're four."

 

Only one halfway shady guy. Saw some DVDs at his stand and he said "DVDs are $2.50." My sister was looking at the first two seasons of Modern Family and I saw South Park Season 12. He then said "Oh, those are $2.50 per disc." Sorry dude, Best Buy has Modern Family for $8.99 new. South Park was only 3 discs, but still not worth it. They're constantly online.

I'm here to brag that I am a complete moron.  I passed up a COMPLETE Odyssey (original, not 200 or 2 or anything like that, the first one) for $20.  It was CIB.  I wasn't sure if it was something worth while or not...  I am an idiot.  

 

I am error.

I had probably one of my best hauls in awhile at my local flea market yesterday and I owe it all to the rain!

 

It usually starts at around 6 am but I always try to get there by 5:45 or earlier to avoid resellers. So I'm about to leave my house at 5:30 and a torrential downpour of rain comes out of nowhere but I think meh, maybe it will quit.  Nope, it gets even worse while I'm driving there almost to the point where I'm about to turn around but I was already halfway there so I just say Fuck it and press on.  When I get there no one is setting up yet but the rain is finally starting to let up a little.  There's a small indoor area where there are usually a few vendors so I head in and actually find a few decent PS1 games.  A few minutes later the sky clears up and vendors are setting up left and right.  So, I head outside and, since there was barely anyone there, I had first crack at every booth!  I feel like now I know the true meaning of a blessing in disguise lol.

 

My haul:

 

Ape Escape (PS1) Black Label - $2

Twisted Metal (PS1)  - $2

Crash 2 (PS1) - $2

PS1 Memory Card - $1

 

LoZ: Ocarina of Time (N64) grey cart V1.0 - $8

Turok Rage Wars (N64) - $3

 

Pokemon Yellow Version - $5

Pokemon Red Version - $5

Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver Guide - $2

Pokemon Platinum Guide - $2

 

Yu Gi Oh: Falsebound Kingdom (GCN) - $2

GBA (original model) - $1

Usually I don't get anything at flea markets, but last Saturday at the one I usually go to two or three times in the summer had a few things I thought were worth picking up.

 

MST3K: Mitchell (Single Episode DVD) - $2

Hobo With a Shotgun (Bluray) - $5

Shade the Changing Man Vol 2: Edge of Vision (old Vertigo Graphic Novel / Trade) - $2

:ps2: Mega Man X7 - $10

:ps3: God Of War Collection - $5

CD - Suburban Legends - $1

3 HDMI Splitter - $1.

 

Wasn't the best deals on the games but wasn't bad either. CD's are always amazingly priced. We'll see how I do this upcoming weekend. The HDMI splitter was the real gem in the situation.

gameboy sp graphite ags 101 -$5   missing battery cover and battery. Fair condition, nice screen.

 

$1 for oddworld

 

 

Not sure whether to buy a replacement battery and cover which would run $10 bucks for the both or just take the screen from it for the GBA backlit mod.

 

I'd feel kind of bad butchering a SP that is in decent condition though. At the same time I'd feel bad spending $10 on a battery and battery cover would make it $15 total investment for a backlit SP which still is good compared to retail but not much of a great deal any more.

 

 

The cheapest gameboy SP battery "cover" on ebay would cost more then I paid for the gameboy.

 

Looking at about $6 for the cover and $4 for a battery.

 

hard to justify paying more for the battery cover then the system itself.

(grumble) I've done the same. I was like, "What the hell is this ugly old thing in the bulletproof white suitcase? Are those supposed to be cartridges? What's with all these cellophane sheets?" I ultimately passed on it. This was twenty years ago, and I STILL have footmarks on my ass from kicking myself.

I got my Odyssey from a collector for $60.00 shipped. He wanted it to go to a good home. I'm so glad I bought it, I'll likely never find it cheaper. I did find the Shooting Gallery complete with the gun for $10.00 at a garage sale last year which is one of my favorite finds ever.

I'd say the real gem is the Suburban Legends CD. If that's the original self-titled EP, it's excellent. I bought a copy from the band after seeing them at Downtown Disney back in 2001 and still have it. Their live show is unparalleled or at least it was at the time. Tons of stage energy.

It's their "Day Job" album. I saw them a few years ago with Reel Big Fish and they played great. Just didn't know any of their songs at the time. For a buck though there was no way I'd pass up the album.

Got a PS2 slim console only for $5  and these two genesis games to add to my collection for $35 for both. Both have cases  but no manual. The genesis games came from a reseller so wasn't the greatest deal but still good deal on some hard to find genesis games to fill my collection in.

Couldn't you always wait to find an sp in the $5 - 10 range with a bad screen to cannibalize? That way you'd end up with one good system and one salvage system left over, eh?

Games Lot.jpg Got some AMAZING scores today at my local Flea Market...

 

The Arc The Lad book and extras complete the copy of the game I found at the SAME flea market a couple weeks ago!  *cheer*  Well, I don't have the big box...but yeah.

 

Thrilled about that, and about the Lunar: Silver Star Story book as well.

 

And Power Stone...  it was a good weekend for me.

Another great morning. Went with the family for Father's Day. I usually go while they're sleeping.

Haven't been to the flea market in a few weeks, so decided to give it a go. Most were 2 bucks, nothing more then 3 dollars. Jigsaw Madness for the ps1 is sealed, Judge Dredd is the snes game with the label covered up.
