Nothing too exciting an OG xbox with 2 controllers and hookups for $10. It has a manufacturing date of 2005

 

Also snagged RDR2 for Ps4 for $20

 

Passed on a $50 120gb PS3 with 1 six-axis controller and a $75 with garbage games

Went out to a sale this past weekend and unfortunately I was beat there by a guy who had apparently contacted the seller and knew there were games. Full disclosure: I did, too, but I didn't know exactly what would be there. Anyway, the guy got a bunch of really great stuff: first party NES games, first party GCN games, Silent Hill games for PS2, and more. I picked up the stuff he didn't grab or missed for $60. It's not a bad haul, but I would have liked to grab the rest for sure.

great finds. Space Ghost's Musical Bar-B-Que is a classic. My family and I are always quoting that CD and Surf and Turf.

Also, interesting way to eat a corndog.

Yeah, I was probably more excited about the CDs! Space Ghost C2C was a really influential show for me growing up.

I was up in Philly visiting the in-laws this weekend and went out yard saling while the grandparents were watching the kiddo. Stopped by a few sales but was a bit off my game since it's not my usual stomping ground. Most of the finds came from the first sale where it was a couple clearing out a house full of junk. Got the consoles, controllers, and OG XBox games for $65. The rest of the stuff in the second pic came from various other sales and were about $11. At the last sale I went to I got there a few minutes late and missed some JRPGs that would have been a nice addition to my collection, so I'm a little sore about that.

This last pic is from a Facebook pickup that I arranged during yard sale hours, so I'm counting it. There's some nice stuff to fill out some holes in my collection, and it was only $10.

Yea I was pretty surprised when they brought them out. They said $5 a piece and I said ok. :-P


Last time I got CIB games it was an out of the way sale that actually advertised games, I got there at 10, and they still had all of them — hard to believe now, but this was early 2000s. Turns out what they had was pretty much every SNES RPG with all maps, inserts, etc in mint condition for $5 each. At the time I made about $600 off of them — I know I could easily make $3,000+ with the same games today.

Hit up a couple of sales and a flea market around town and found a few things, but not much. Paid $31 and found some decent games to take advantage of the current GameStop promo.

Stopped at two yard sales. No games, but one had some CDs, some DVDs and two Blus, almost everything was 50 cents a pop.

 

Primus - The Brown Album

Best of Janis Joplin (for my nephew)

Nirvana - From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah (for my brother)

 

Only movies I saw that I was interested in I had. Probably should've picked up the copy of The Losers on Blu for that price, but I have it and left it for the next guy.

 

The second one had girl's clothes out front and said the rest of the stuff inside. I wasn't in the mood for an indoor sale so I left.

This upcoming Friday and Saturday is an annual road-long yard sale (called the “10-mile yard sale” here) so hopefully I’ll have some sweet finds.

Went yard saling and flea marketing with some friends on Saturday. Only really found the stuff below, but I had a good time nonetheless. Paid about retail for Dragon Warrior 1+2, but I've really been after it lately.

Big find for the weekend, however, came on Sunday. I picked up the lot below from an ad on Nextdoor for $100. It's 66 NES games and there's a good number of them I don't have yet. I was a little late to responding to the ad so I'm surprised I got it, but I'm not complaining.

Got to a yard sale down the road from my house and there was a yard sale across the road that I'd been to a few times over the years.

 

The first one was the advertised one and still setting up. All I found was an old pair of small Harbor Freight brand vise grip pliers for $1 as my dad said to keep an eye out for them as they break a lot.

 

Second one had a hundred or so CDs for 25 cents each. Pretty varied collection and I grabbed

 

Roksopp - Melody A.M.

The 80's Greatest Rock Hits - Leather & Lace (compilation of female rockers)

Miami Sound Machine - Eyes of Innocence

Billboard Top Hits - 1982

 

then found some for family. got my brother

Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols

Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd (got home and noticed it's only disc 2. I was checking discs and all were in there and stopped. I grabbed it last to get to an even 8. I don't think he'll care.)

 

for my nephew, Who Wants To A Millionaire: The Album (I noticed this CD is the Canadian edition which apparently includes "Under Pressure" by Queen with David Bowie instead of "When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going" by Billy Ocean)

 

and for my sister, Olivia Newton-John - Back to Basics: The Essential Collection 1971–1992

Had some luck this weekend hitting some community sales to the southeast of the city. Spent about $70 total, which is a little more than usual, but the games came from a guy cleaning out his collection a bit and he knew what he had. Still, they were things I actually wanted.

Blugh, yard sales were absolutely abysmal for me this weekend. Got scooped at a couple of different community sales so the only things I came home with were a singing lobster and the Jingle All The Way OST for some gag gifts. 

I did, however, see sex toys for the first time at a sale. Also, there was a really cute litter of puppies.

You gotta mess with people that put sex toys out at a yard sale.  Start asking specific questions about their use, make up some quotes about reviews you've read about them or even have a mock sword fight if they look like the type of people that would wash them before putting them out.

 

I guess that's the key question.... were they NIP?  Please say yes.       :puke:

Wow. And I thought the stepmom who put her stepson's Girls Gone Wild DVD out would be the most risque thing I would hear of.
