Worked from home Friday so was able to hit one sale early. Also, there was a townwide sale about 40 minutes away. Found a resale vendor setup nearby that had a lot of stuff I like.
Friday sale, lady had these vintage (1967-1970) copies of Automobile Quarterly. These things are high quality, great photos and art. Talked her down to $10 for the lot, threw in the CDs.
Near the citywide sale, a guy had set up selling lots of music, games and other odd stuff.
Games were $3, movies were $1, CDs were $1. The games are not the greatest but the price point is not bad for these days. The train plaque is the same as one I had hanging on the wall when I was 5, was able to talk him down to $30 from $40. I would have paid the $40 if necessary. All of the above was $96. Said he would have more on Saturday.
Went with some family to the citywide sale on Saturday, they kept delaying. And delaying. Did not leave town until after noon.
Had them stop at the same place I went to on Friday, he brought some stuff based on what I said I liked.
Games were $3, 12" vinyl were $3, 7" vinyl were $2, the DS case was $2.
The Guns n' Roses banner is a 1988 vintage Nikry which set me back $20 down from $25. He brought it because I was wearing a concert shirt the day before. He knew how to trap me. There was some usual wear to the corners for something of this age, but it appears someone took scissors to the edge to remove fraying at some point.
The rest of the townwide sale was a bust. The family members found some stuff to use for their rental houses, but everyone had started closing up by then for the most part. They decided to stop at a flea marked that I didn't know existed. It added to an already expensive weekend for me.
The games were priced as marked, the Wii grip was $1. The games were a little overpriced but Japanese stuff is not readily available in the midwest. I figure after shipping, especially if I have to get them from overseas, the price would be about the same. Putting them with the Super Famicom I picked up last year.
As for the movies, I found them in a giant, dirty unmarked binder in a back corner. I asked how much for each, and they had to call the booth owner. Ended up buying the entire binder, all horror movies, for $17. What you see here is about half of what is in the binder, I still have to go thru and clean the rest (there are 35 in this image). They're not extremely rare, but many are definitely uncommon. Most of these are not exactly my kind of movie, don't think I'd have the stomach for it. Cannibal Apocalypse is particularly notorious. I will probably be selling or passing them along to someone else.
