My first Goodwill trip in quite some time, been working OT like crazy since going back to work.  Ended up finding a SNES Super Scope (no receiver, missing battery cover) for 1.99.

 

And the big find was a Yamaha RX-V467 audio receiver for 3.99. (http://www.crutchfie...ha-RX-V467.html)  4 HDMI inputs, passthrough and 3D capable.  Also came with the ipod dock. The manager was pissed it was priced so low, said it should have been at least $25-30.  Now to find some good speakers to go with it.

I finally got some games at Goodwill today, and they were newer releases that weren't even in the case.

For $3/each
-Lego Dimensions game (Wii u)
-New Super Mario Bros U w/ Luigi U (Wii U, sealed)

I wasn't aware that they go for as much as they do on eBay.

Nice, my friend who used to be heavily in Amiibo but has taken a step back really wants the Boo amiibo, he says it glows in the dark.

Picked up:

Mint GBA SP with 4 games (All Pokemon Games) = $20

 

Saw:

PS4 New/SEALED Telltale Batman = $13

Complete GameCube System with controller, manual, power/video cables = $40

in response to pic above: not very often you see an actual mint GBA SP. I swear every single one I see is just beat to hell. Also very very nice score on the pokemon games.

 

I finally got some stuff at my local thrift store too. (had a 30% off coupon so prices are after that coupon)

 

Pokemon Gold $3.50

Pokemon Red $4.80

Kirby Pinball $2

Speedy Gonzalez gameboy $3

Paper Boy gameboy $3

WarioLand 2 $3.50

Drakenguard 3 $2

WWE 2k16 360 $2

 

very very surprised to see the Pokemon games going for that price as all the thrift stores in my area have gotten pretty terrible with pricing them at ~30-40 bucks. They were in the glass case and I almost didnt even bother looking at them because I was convinced they would be priced way too high.

Wow, that Gamecube was a nice fine. Kind of a high price, but still worth it, imo. What store was that? Goodwill?

Found a Limited Edition Viva Pinata 360 in decent shape but missing the plastic cover for 99 cents at Goodwill, traded it in towards a used Destiny the Taken King x360 at GS, thankfully the Taken King code was unused, and the game looks pristine. After everything, not bad for 2 bucks and change.

I am really enjoying the John Denver/Muppets Christmas CD I found at Goodwill for a quarter over the summer... Piggy pudding. Lol.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!!

Earlier today I saw a copy of THPS4 for the gamecube sitting in a shelf of dvd's at one of my local thrift stores. It was marked $2.49 so I popped it open to see if the disc was actually in there and sitting within the case was a mint disc of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. So naturally I closed the case back up and purchased it. Now to just print that cover art and be happy.

 

Last Thursday I had gone to my really local thrift store and scored a copy of :ps1: Bushido Blade for $1.

 

Also some time last week I scored a copy of the book Star Wars Bloodline for $3 at a local thrift, which seems to still be pretty pricey on AMZ. I was somewhat tempted to dive into the new canon EU and I feel like this was a good place to start. About half way through and I'm really enjoying it so far. As if that wasn't enough I found a copy of one of my favorite movie's on DVD (which is actually hard to find) SLC Punk for $2 as well as what I believe is the entire first season of Sailor Moon on VHS ($.99 per tape) so I picked up all of them.

 

Overall my thrift store luck has been really good lately. Gotta love thrifting. 

 

 

Hope everyone had a great HannuChristmas and has a great new years!

I forgot they shut down one Goodwill by me until I drove past today. OH WELL, they put Nintendo stuff on ShopGoodwill so no big lose.
