#13975354 2018 Thrift Store Thread -- Share Your Findings Here

Posted by arsenalcrazy8 on 02 April 2018 - 08:41 PM

was leaving my local goodwill when I caught a glimpse of one of the recently donated bins - it was full of Nintendo stuff. So I immediately asked the manager if she could price it for me, and we ended up agreeing on a bundle deal for $75. (not SUPPPER cheap, but the stuff is worth it). So for $75:

 

N64 w/ expansion pak + cables + 2 gray official controllers

Super Nintendo + cables + 2 controllers 

1 boxed turbo SNES controller

 

Super Game Boy w/ donkey kong in it

Mickey's Magical Quest

Super Mario World

Super Mario All Stars

Super Mario Kart 

Donkey Kong Country

Donkey Kong Country 3

Pro Tour Golf

Vegas Stakes

 

Donkey Kong 64

Super Mario 64

Waialea Golf

Diddy Kong Racing

 

Manuals for all the games mentioned above (which was pretty cool) 

Strategy Guides for DK64, Mario World, DK Country 3, Diddy kong, Mario all Stars, Mario 64. 

2 old '97 Gamepro / EGM magazines

 

Probably one of my better finds in a long, long time. 




#13946081 2018 Yard Sale / Flea Market Finds

Posted by Mike_TV on 14 February 2018 - 06:11 PM

So I've had a little luck though OfferUp and flea markets lately and then a lot of luck just down the street from me.

 

Everything in the pic below was about $48 from the flea markets near Baltimore. Nothing super amazing, but I few things I'd been after.

This lot was $50 and came from OfferUp.

And lastly, this lot would probably be more appropriate to put in the Dumpster Dive thread, but I don't think CAG has one of those anymore and this is too good not to share. I was walking the dog last week and upon turning a corner spotted a black crate on the ground. I looked inside and lo and behold it was full of NES games. I looked around for an owner and knocked on a few doors to see if it belonged to anyone, but no one claimed it. I ended up bringing it home and putting up a Lost & Found ad for it, but the only response I got was from a homeowner nearby saying it had just showed up mid-afternoon. So at this point it's looking like a free bunch of NES games for me!

Was at my local Goodwill and noticed behind the jewlery case they had a sealed Gameboy....They wanted $500 for it. It was at that moment I realized my Goodwill is a POS.

One of the thrift stores near my house is feast or famine when it comes to games. Cherry-picked this from a cart full of stuff after seeing nothing worth buying for about six months.

 

$5 for Zelda, $2 for Wii Sports, $3 each for the others.

The wife and I bought our first house late last year, and since moving in I've been working on turning the basement into a lair for all my gaming stuff. It's like 95% done at this point, just need new curtains, a nicer CRT, a few more small posters, and a sound bar for the LCD, but I'm really proud of it so far!
