#12481923 The Official Craigslist Finds Thread Vol. 2

Posted by strawyleader997 on 09 February 2015 - 02:11 AM

I just bought a lot of stuff from a guy who was selling his kids old stuff. It was all in a picture, with no descriptions of the items.

White Xbox 360 console with cords
SNES console with cords
about 300 pokemon cards(there are some good cards)
Pokemon special pikachu edition Gameboy game in box

In the picture, I thought the pokemon game was just complete, but when I picked the stuff up it turns out that it's SEALED! I only paid $80 for all of it, and the sealed Pokemon game sells for $250.

While not a yard sale find, this marked my first find of 2015. At our local thrift shop, it was told that everything by the dumpster was either garbage or things that the shop can't test. I started driving home and noticed a PS game case sticking out of the box and took a closer look. Grabbed it and threw it in the truck. Upon getting home, I had hit a motherload. In the box was the following:
 
Unreal Tournament 2004 - PC
Quake 4 - PC
Halo - PC
ARMA - PC
Call of Duty 4 - PC
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic - PC
Farcry 3 - PC
Star Ocean Till End of Time Collectors Edition - PS2
Dragonball Z Budokai 3 - PS2
Jak 2 - PS2
Jak 3 - PS2
Dragon Quest VIII Collector's Edition Edition - PS2
Devil May Cry 3 - PS2
Legacy of Kain Defiance - PS2
Arc the Lad - PS2
007 The World is Not enough - PS
Digimon Digital Card Battles - PS
Syphon Filter 2 - PS
3xtreme - PS
Croc - PS
Driver 2 - PS
Gex - PS
Gex 2 - PS
Gex 3 - PS
Monster Rancher 2 - PS
Rugrats - PS
Legend of Dragoon - PS
 
The best part of all this is I got to them right before it started raining!!!! Score!

I've had a pretty dry summer. Not much at the garage sales and absolutely nothing at the thrift stores. I've had about 5 weeks straight, going around 3-4 times a week, finding nothing interesting. I wasn't even finding over-priced games in the locked case. Just terrible.

 

Today I had the day off and decided to try my luck once again, I walked into the Goodwill and immediately seen this in the glass case...

ITXpRPI.jpg?1

 

I freaked out! The N64 is my favorite system of all time and the main one I collect for. I've always wanted a CIB system, but I've never even seen one in the wild. Unfortunately I couldn't see the price and expected it to be $99 because this is Goodwill and that's just what they do.

 

I flagged down an employee and after unlocking the case I was blown away by the price - only $25!! Plus I had a 20% off coupon bringing the price down to $20!

 

It's in beautiful condition. I can tell it's never been used. Both controllers are perfect. The cords haven't even been untangled.

 

It also came with three games - A Bugs Life, Goldeneye007 and Nascar 2000 - but who cares really.

 

So stoked to finally have this.

I know I haven't been posting lately because, well, I haven't found shit but I always check this thread and try to leave Likes when I can. Glad to see some people still finding great stuff!

 

EDIT: Also the side of the box still had some slight Christmas wrapping paper taped to it. So much nostalgia opening this up, seriously.

Ok, I'll post something. I need to cheer up and I think some of you will like this one. ;)

 

 

EPIC FREEBIE POST :

 

 

Ok, There is a nice Asian lady and her adorable little girl (I think they are Japanese) that have G-sales once per year. I always stop, but they never have anything I am into. I've asked about video games in the past, but she wasn't sure if they had any. I wasn't going to stop today (because it was mostly girls clothes), but I got out anyway. I saw this as I approached:

I approached the box wondering how much it would cost me...

 

 

In case you can't see in the pic the box says "free". I asked her just to make sure and she said "Yes it is free, you can take it. It is old, so it is free!" I thanked her and offered her money, but she told me "It is yours!" :)

 

I got in my car and drove home to change my boxers. :whee: (j/k)
