My first find of 2007 and it came from a phone number I handed out in 2006. I got a call and the lady says "I'm the lady from the yardsale you gave your number to, remember me" sadly I had to tell her I gave my number out to like 500 people. Anyway, I drove over to her house (about 10 min) after she said she had an Atari 2600 with what must be 200 games many in boxes and tons of accessories. she said she just wanted to get rid of it and would accept any reasonable offer. So I get there and checked out the goods and make her an offer of $40. she said she could not possibly accept anything less then $150. So I asked if she had anything else and she busted out a box with a complete ice blue N64 with matching controller and a SNES complete less controller. She said she had another box that was MIA with a NES and all the games for all the systems. She said there must be at least 50 or 60 games. She said she wanted to sell them all together and was hoping to get at least $50. I told her I would take that deal and would give her $10 on the 2 systems now and the $40 balance when she finds the other box. She agreed

I find it a little weird that she places a higher value on the Atari stuff then the Nintendo stuff but I'm not complaining. If this pans out 3 systems and 50+ games for $50 not a bad deal at all.

Picked up an old Sierra pc game King's Quest at a thriftstore for $2.98. I remember reading here somewhere that it was a good game. It came with 2 cd/discs with I-VI. It also came with a bunch of small floppy discs that had King's Quest VI on written on it. I haven't tried it yet, but just hope it works.

Okay, so "officially" this was a 2007 purchase, and, "technically" it wasn't purchased at a garage sale, but still, I was happy with my find today. I ran to a local Target and found Quake 4 (PC) for $7.48. :}

They actually had 2 copies. The first one I picked up was priced $14.98 and I said "no thanks, still not cheap enough...lol". Then I found the 2nd copy that was priced $7.48. Usually, when 2 items are priced different, the lower of the two prices have been the correct one for the items. But, I didn't need 2 copies of Quake 4, so I just picked up the $7.48 priced one.

Now I just gotta get some time to play the thing.

Whoa...King's Quest I - VI for $3? That's a deal

I used to play these back on old PC, the puzzles were hard as hell sometimes...

The creator is female..Roberta Williams

I got a PS2 kiosk with the tv, the system and 2 controllers, and an eye toy on top of it for free about 2 weeks ago. ^_^
