Haven't been thrifting for nearly 2 months but this evening I randomly spotted a brand new/sealed The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD with Wolf Link Amiibo for $9.99 at the Toys section. Going to make a great xmas gift.

Oregon Trail Card Game (Complete) $2

Two nanoblock sets (Space Shuttle and Neuschwanstein Castle) $0.50 each. My 9-year-old was proud of these finds. The Castle was still factory sealed.

$6 for the DS stuff, $6 for the 5th gen Nano, and $3 for the Zippo. Nano doesnt hold a charge very well and it doesnt stay connected to my PC so I havent been able to reset it.

Guess I missed this one. $4 for the Switch AC adapter and $3 for NBA 2K18 for PS3. Then I saw some size 17 Nikes.

not an amazing find but half decent... just found a DS folio with 7 DS games Drawn To Life, Spider-Man Friend or Foe, Pokemon Ranger, Ben 10 Protector of Earth, Crash (Bandicoot) of the Titans, Nicktoons Attack of the ToyBots, and Professor Layton and the Curious Village and it also had a DS charger in there.. got it for $1.99

they had some shovelware in cases for 99 cents a game but I passed, I will have to go back though because I saw the case for Professor Layton there i'll buy that too

So I haven't posted in forever because my work/life/attempts to write again take up so much of my time now that I almost never get to go out. I went to three garage sales this year and probably stopped at thrifts less than 10 times. I had a few meh finds, nothing great. Best I had:

 

Zelda Twilight Princess HD (Wii U): 19.99 (Sealed, though not the version with the Amiibo) This was back in February I believe.

Mario Kart Wii K'Nex Ultimate Building Set: 3.99 (searches online seem to have this going for 70-80, though one recently failed to sell for 50 for what it's worth, don't know if the auction ended early or what though, didn't look that closely)

Motorola Roadster 2: 9.99

 

Decent finds, though nothing amazing. Grabbed a few cheapo games here and there too. For the most part though since selling around half of my collection a couple years ago it's hard to get excited to go out. I'm actually converting largely to digital only, which I would have cringed at 3 years ago, but with how little time I have to game, the convenience of it is a big draw. (being able to quickly switch between games, carry with me easily on Switch, switch between games when remote playing with Vita on PS4)

Just bought a Wii U System + Mario Kart 8 (sealed) + Lego Marvel Super Heroes (disc only - inside system) for $49.99 at Goodwill. This will be replacing my Wii system.

Wow, really nice find. Enjoy it. It's a fun system, especially at the price you got it for.

Yeah I'm enjoying it. What are some Wii U exclusive games to play? I bought New Super Mario Bros and 3D Land. I'm still debating if I should get Breath of the Wild.

Thanks but I already gave it away as a gift because I didn't have a Wii U system. Now I do and bad timing :(

If you don't have a Switch, Breath of the Wild is a must have. Runs pretty good on the Wii U.

Breath of the Wild runs great on the Wii U, I enjoy it a LOT!  I also highly recommend Yoshi's Woolly World, Xenoblade Chronicles X, DK Returns Tropical Freeze, and Hyrule Warriors.

Also the wind waker remake and bayonetta 2 are great games if you haven't played them yet.

In terms of Wii U games that are (almost) assuredly never coming to the Switch that are IMHO fun are Game and Wario, Itagaki's Devil's Third and the Nintendo/Atlus commercial fiasco/experiment, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.  All three sold horribly, and not because of the Wii U audience numbers.  They're super niche titles that never caught on with any audience but are still unique fun.

$0.50 CDs:
Gridlock’d soundtrack
Best of Roy Ayers
The Time - Ice Cream Castle (Jungle Love!)

And took a chance on this puzzle from GW for $4. Complete!
