The FDR doll appears to be standing. Shouldn't he be in a chair?

Perfect condition. Like New.

 

Oh yeah. Other stuff I'm too lazy to take pictures of. Let's see. Rock Band 3 PS3 $1.50. Keep Collective Silver Bracelet Brand New $5. Star Wars Rogue One Blu-Ray Brand New $3.50 (keeping this instead of selling it.) Been dry lately. Quality over quantity is my mantra nowdays. Haven't been yard saleing in weeks. Oh, and uh... there's one more thing. Have to take a picture of this one. If it's real, I might be in the money. Look forward to it guys!

Great show, even if your not a fan of the prequels. When I was younger, my family won some house party for the premier of it. They shipped a huge box full of light up lightsabers. I wonder how much those are worth.

About $35. Had extra cables for the PS2. Everything appears to work just fine. Killzone 3 is actually pretty sweet with the gun setup.

Not sure if you aware but the PS3 controllers have some trade-in value at GS. I found 3 PS3 (2 Black, 1 Gold) controllers at Goodwill for $4 each a week ago. I ended up trading them at GameStop for $48 store credit + $2 cash = Walked out of GS with a $50 PSN card.

Thanks, just looked up trade values on the app. I find it funny that the Move controller trades in at $24 but the Navigation controller..........$0.60!

I've got them both. I can tell you why the Navi controller isn't worth anything... no game uses it! I bought one thinking that I would need it, just like the Nunchuks on the Wii, but nope. It's slightly frustrating, because the Navi would have been useful for things like Deadstorm Pirates (spinning the ship's wheel).

$14 for the stuff in the picture. Also got a PS2 copy of GTA SA and N64 copy of Cruis'n USA for $3 apiece. Sadly no other N64 stuff to be found which makes me wonder what I missed. (you know it didnt get donated alone....)

Had some more time to go to thrift stores this week and found some cool stuff.

Super stoked for the descent longbox, it's my first longbox game and it's in great condition. I passed on a bunch of long box games over time because of condition and this one is in great condition so I'm really happy.

 

I couldn't believe the Pokemon Mystery dungeon being in the little baggy on the toy wall, they must have thought it was a puzzle. I'm upgrading from my loose copy to this one, plus now I have two copies for multiplayer though I'm not sure what multiplayer is in this game.

 

8000 piece puzzle is unopened and will probably take my grandmother a long time to do. I love the tag "For the truly dedicated puzzle person".

Another find from this week is this giant meowth plush from 1999, I'm never one to buy stuffed animals because fear of germs but he's giant!

I'm hoping he'll survive a light washing to get the dust and slight discoloration off.

 

Really happy with everything I found this week.

 

A slightly related note, for those who shop at savers if you buy something that is more than 19 dollars you have to return it to the store you bought it at. I learned this the hard way and am now stuck with a bad purchase.

WOW!!! Just got home. Scored 6 PS1 Games (Mega Man Legends, Spyro Year of the Dragon, Resident Evil Director's Cut & 2, Dino Crisis, and Nightmare Creatures) all for $4.50 after 25% discount at Salvation Army. 
 
All games come with their manual and discs look perfect, clean, and mint. No joke.

My local savers had a Skyrim for Switch sealed.

Price was 29.99.

I picked it up, even though I don’t like paying non-thrift store prices at thrift stores...

Wonder who would donate that / why

Blue Wii Bundle was $35, more than I'd like to spend on a Wii at GW but I dont see the blue ones often. White Wii and ac adapter I swapped for a $10 Wii I had bought but had a broken eject button and disconnected Bluetooth chip. Sealed 1998 Fire mini classic was $2! 3rd gen 32GB iPod Touch was $6! $12 for the PS2 games and DVD. Couldnt figure out why my Wii game would only go in half way... treasures in the disc drive.....

Got a working original White Wii that needed a sensor bar from Salvation Army for $10. Got a new sensor bar at a local game shop for $10. One of the remotes doesn't work so I ordered one with the Motion Plus attachment included for around $15 on Mercari.

My best thrift store find this year. I had been wanting a Wii again. The prices at other thrift stores started around $40. Glad I waited it out for a while.

Sounds like the drive is failing. You'll have to try to fix it or replace the drive

That reminds me of when my uncle bought a used VCR from a garage sale in the 1990s. There was an NES game crammed into the system... Konami's Jackal as I recall.

I remember my son put a small pencil sharpener in our VCR and the thing was so perfectly placed under the tape loader that it wouldn’t even rattle. I took that thing apart twice before I found it in there.

Local savers had a DS bundle priced at 79.99...I rarely if ever buy something from a thrift shop that high, but I did have a 20% off coupon so for 64 bucks I thought it was worth it:

Case / stylus / charger
DSXL Mario anniversary edition

Zelda phantom hourglass
Zelda spirit tracks
Chrono Trigger
World ends with you
Mario Kart DS
Mario 64 DS
New Super Mario Bros
Sonic classic collection
Disgaea DS
Monster Rancher DS

I feel like the summer is very hit or miss. A lot of people are having garage sales instead of donating. They are in clean out mode but the only stuff that makes it to the thrift store are the garage sale leftovers and those are usually pretty picked over.

I picked up a 160gb ps3 slim for $15, but it would take or eject discs. I took it home to open it up just for fun and see if I could fix it.

It had 3 discs inside of it lol...

a copy of assassins creed, a blu ray of Cars and a dvd of Madagascar 2. Works perfectly fine now after pulling out those discs.

Dead as a doornail for weeks. Looks like that Star Wars series drained all my luck. Though I still have that rare? item that I don't really want appraised in case it's actually a knockoff.

I decided to kill some time between yard sales this Saturday and stopped by Savers, and was surprised to find everything in the store was 50% off. They had a few N64 bundles and I grabbed this one for $100. Kind of pricey for a thrift store, but I've been looking for this model of N64 so I can mod it and the games were worth it.
