I decided to combine the two threads since the Yard Sale Thread saw much more action last year.


Found a video store poster for the film “Three O’Clock High” for $2 at the local indoor flea market. It’s a little rough, but looks great framed.

Also picked up the following for $1 total: The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou DVD, Rob and Big Seasons 1 & 2 DVD set, New Edition “Hit Me Off” Maxi CD single.

I can already see that these "finds" are going to be very subjective.

LMAO, yep you get a lot of people excited over mediocre items/prices in these threads. 😉

Not everyone is out to make a fortune and people like what they like. Why rip on someone for posting content for you to read? Clearly he's a fan of the movie.

And to contribute positively....vintage metal lawn darts "Jarts" set. Complete in box. $2.99

Picked this up through Facebook Marketplace today. $50. I should be able to get about $30 in Gamestop credit for the games.

Found my first Jaguar game in the wild last year. Paid a whopping 25 cents. Worth about $55.

Funny you ask what's everyone looking for and then post a picture of 2 of the main games im looking for (MP7 and MK DD). Really im looking for any Nintendo, Dreamcast, and PS3 games. For a newer system PS3 games seem to either be nonexistent or overpriced around me. Is this the year Wii U games finally hit yard sales cheap?

This was a Facebook find but I mentioned wanting MP7 the other day. Grabbed these 3 for $50

MP is complete, Zelda OOT is missing manual, and Zelda CE is missing artwork/manual. Probably overpaid but never see good GC games.

This year I am looking for a copy of the Warriors on the original X-Box. Also going to look for a few rare DVDs like Tucker: The Man and His Dream and some MGM movies that are out of print. I always think I'm going to do worse than last year but we'll see. Best to keep my expectations low then be surprised.

Craigslist find $50. More luck in the last week on GameCube stuff then all of last year.

I had a lot lined up on eBay, they listed it in a manner that wasn't getting any views. They had it set up as an auction but contacted them if they would do a BIN and how much they replied with $70 plus shipping for everything. The lot was 11 games.... The stars it had were Giga Wing 2, D2, and Project Justice.... FML!!!!!

 

They relisted it and it sold in 15 seconds. =/ I didn't even see it.

So I've had a little luck though OfferUp and flea markets lately and then a lot of luck just down the street from me.

 

Everything in the pic below was about $48 from the flea markets near Baltimore. Nothing super amazing, but I few things I'd been after.

This lot was $50 and came from OfferUp.

And lastly, this lot would probably be more appropriate to put in the Dumpster Dive thread, but I don't think CAG has one of those anymore and this is too good not to share. I was walking the dog last week and upon turning a corner spotted a black crate on the ground. I looked inside and lo and behold it was full of NES games. I looked around for an owner and knocked on a few doors to see if it belonged to anyone, but no one claimed it. I ended up bringing it home and putting up a Lost & Found ad for it, but the only response I got was from a homeowner nearby saying it had just showed up mid-afternoon. So at this point it's looking like a free bunch of NES games for me!

Still about 2 months away from sales around here, not that I find anything these days.

Got out to local outdoor flea market this weekend. Not too many people but I did find a guy selling games for $1-$2. Paid $15 for everything in the picture. World Series 2K1 is sealed. Atari box is pretty beat up and no instructions but can't complain for $1.

Yeah, most estate sales are run by professionals and the prices are usually high like that. I lucked up on one recently — I rarely go to them — and got the first edition Parker Brothers Ouija board for 50 cents that’s worth about $50.
