I doubt this year will be better for me, last year the only good thing I found was a snes with 2 boxed games (DK country, street fighter turbo) and 2 loose games (Super mario world and super off road) for $30

Got a Sega Genesis for five bucks... which I'd be more excited about if it weren't a friggin' mess inside. The RF shield is rusty as hell, making me wonder if I should just remove that part and throw it out. On/off switch is a mess, too. Once it's off, it stays off unless you open it up and throw the switch manually. It DOES work, but man is it a fixer-upper.

Looks like I might be getting back into buying and selling electronics a bit, though it will be cold here for a while. Lost my job last week due to a down-sizing in the company. Hopefully I'll have another graphic design job soon considering it pays pretty well.

 

Has anyone here tried selling on OfferUP?

These were from the Flea Market. I have a lot of competition here since RetroLiberty and a few other youtubers frequent it. Got these for about $26. The Sega Game in the case is Phantasy Star Online 2. Not shown are two Graphic Novels (Revenge of the Green Goblin and Batman Knightfall Part 3) and Pokemon Ranger.

 

Promptly traded in Pokemon Ranger and WWE All Stars to GS.

RetroLiberty are the OC youtubers. There are a few more but I don't know them.

 

Probably the same. More empty spaces than usual. More scanners, resellers, and collectors and such.

It's a mobile app similar to Craigslist, but people can display profile pictures/personal info. Doesn't seem as shady as Criagslist.

Since there is no flea market thread I'll just post this here

Got persona4 dancing all night, contra shattered soldier and street fighter alpha 3 MAX for $8 totalimage.jpg

Too lazy to take a picture of the other 2...

Guy selling the games also had some other decent ps1 games but I just took those 3 and ran since people were starting to crowd around.

Wouldve been hyped about that. For that price, I think you shouldve stayed and tried to get more. Unless you have people who are scummy and try to take it from your hands.

Cant really do anything once you called dibs

I missed 3 crazy lots on FB today. She sold pokemon games for $1 each, ds console $3, etc. Worst part is she asked me about some games a year ago and I gave her an honest evaluation. I hate people. It doesn't pay to be honest anymore. I should just post on her posts and let her know she got ripped off, but I will control myself.

She probably didnt care that much and was glad to clean up.

Picked these up. Found out I missed out on some Gunpla from 2 weeks ago which is a shame. But I did tell them to hold any Gunpla they happen to find.

I actually found N64 stuff. Glad I kept following the signs. The seller was really nice and said the games were a dollar each. For that price, I might as well.

 

Managed to talk them into giving me the Gameboy Games and the Memory Cards for 2 for $1. All in all, everything was $13

First time going out for the year, only went to a few sales but I got some good stuff anyway.

:xbox: Beyond Good & Evil and Psychonauts,  :ps2: Fatal Frame, Devil May Cry 1, Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution, and Everquest Online Adventures all from the same sale. Paid $3 each. The top row of PS2 games is sealed.

 

Blue Stinger for Dreamcast was from another sale. Ridiculously grimy but only cost me a quarter.

Woke up early in the morning. Since I went Garage Saling last week, I decided to hit up the Flea Market since it's been a while. Wasn't in the mood to buy much, was mainly there for the exercise. lol. 

 

Picked up Steam Boy and Ready 2 Rumble for a buck a piece. Picked up Sonic for $4 for the hell of it. Been wanting it for a while. Bought Wii Sports for $5. When I went to check the disc, turns out Mario Kart Wii was in there. Probably was the highlight of my trip. :lol:

 

Maybe the next time I go to the Flea Market, I'm more in the mood to buy stuff. While I was there, I saw two sellers being forced to pack up and leave. I guess they didn't pay rent.

Went to one sale today saw a buy had a Wii system for sale with a Wii Fit Board for $60

Came with 3 controllers and 3 games. Mario Kart, MX vs ATV, Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. I also saw TMNT for PS2. He said each game was a $1, I didnt want the Wii Fit Board. I got him down to $40, so system all hookups and 4 games for $40

 

I'll either keep it or give it my nieces  

 

Picked up another Wii today for $10, no sensor bar or games. Buts in better shape then the other one. I also got a Fat ps2 with a network adapter for $5

 

PS2 doesnt read discs

 

Tested both Wiis, they work as a bonus the one from Sat came with a copy of Mario Super Sluggers in the Drive and when I opened the Mario and Sonic case, it was a copy of Mario Kart Wii

Decent value day, although the competition is getting worse each yard sell season.

 

Ended up with

Complete Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes - $5

Shenmue complete - $7

Resident Evil Operation Racoon City PS3 - $3

Call of Duty Black Ops PS3 - $3

1996 Final Fantasy Keychains, set of 5 - $4

1997 Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3 figure set - $4

PS2 Fat with accessories in excellent shape - $10

 

The Final Fantasy keychains are worth $15 apiece and the Zelda figures look to sell for $20 apiece.  They really look nice in my game room.  I've been looking for a complete Twin Snakes for awhile so that was nice addition.

Nothing special but finally had the first sale of the year I bought something at today. Picked up 4 Wii Games for $20. Titles were as follows:

Pikmin
Wii Sports
Mario Kart Wii
Mario Kart Wii

All are in great shape and will be a nice credit increase towards some of my preorders at GS.

Stopped by a yard sale and was surprised that they had a Pioneer CLD-1070 Laserdisc player. The thing was beat up to hell though, lots of cosmetic damage and some damage on the power cord. Would have taken the gamble on it for $10 if I didn't already have my own laserdisc player. Kinda wish I got it just to see if it may have worked though.

I love laserdiscs. They take up a lot of space though. I'm kinda pissed that I missed an Edward Scissorhands on clearance at my HPB last week. I think it was marked down to $2. I was watching it for months and I saw a guy with it in the checkout line. TBH I don't know if my player is working, I never got around to testing it.

I haven't gotten around to posting in about a year, so I'll just mention my laserdisc story now.

 

Last fall there was someone advertising a laserdisc player, the sale started on a Wednesday and it was the next city over.  Each day the advertisement still said laserdisc player but I figured it was gone the first day.  Saturday rolls around and I have a chance to hit sales, I put the place on my list but decide to go later since it was a half hour away.  I roll up at about 10:00 and they say it sold at about 8:30 that morning.  I was surprised it lasted that long.  They were also surprised; it came with 130 movies   :wall: .  The price?  $30 for everything.

 

They used to own a video store.  I was able to snare 10 discs they missed that were mixed in with records for $5.

Yard sale season has started in Baltimore and I was able to hit up about half-a-dozen sales in my neighborhood this past Saturday. The only game I saw was a Just Dance game for Wii, but I managed to snag some baby toys, wine glasses, and a denim vest. At this point, I'm trying to go out with lowered expectations, since the competition for games is pretty fierce. I'm also thinking I need to start avoiding the craigslist sales and exploring the neighborhoods I don't see many sales for. I imagine they've got to be going on, but people just aren't advertising on the internet. Hopefully that means there are less folks looking for games there.

I guess my season has officially begun. :)

 

Picked up this lot for $20. Bought it for the Capcom v SNK2 and for the smoke dualshock. Two other people were interested, so I offered $15, but settled on their original $20 asking price.

The big city wide sale for Cuba, MO is coming up this weekend. Usually I have some pretty awesome finds like mutant league hockey last year. I'm debating on taking Friday off though to hit the friday sales.
