I'm trying to be more financially circumspect lately, but we had a few nice yard sale finds yesterday that were too good to pass up:
Sears light sixer with owner's manual - $5 (plus the Saturday Night Fever OST on LP for $1)
SNES system with AC adapter + RF unit - FREE
Pink Floyd "Meddle" LP + "Wildman" Steve Brill's book on edible/medicinal plants - $1.75
3 CDs + SimCity 3000 CD-ROM - $1.00
Also, my girlfriend got a SNES + controllers + a bunch of games for $20, including SMW, Zelda, DKC, and Mario Paint (with mouse!). It works quite well, though it came without an AC adapter -- but then we randomly got that free SNES later the same day, so it worked out perfectly. Both systems are badly yellowed, but neither of us cares much about that.
The Sears light sixer, by the way, was especially funny since I specifically asked whether they had any old video game systems lurking around, to which they replied "no". But it was an estate sale, and people often don't know what their relatives had. When we were browsing around in the furnished basement, my girlfriend spotted the owner's manual, and the Tele-Games turned out to be right next to me -- I hadn't even noticed it. It was dusty as heck, but cleaned up nicely, and works perfectly though the cartridge slot is very tight -- my Atari-branded copy of Donkey Kong doesn't fit.
