I picked up a 400 from Goodwill in Lawrenceville for $10.00, but that's the only Atari item I have seen there.

I'm 90 miles south of Pittsburgh but I get up there often. I've scored some great stuff up there on Craigslist and some of the thrift stores.

Which thrift stores have you been going to? Most of the ones I am aware of had been as dry as a bone. I gave up about a year ago... was just wasting time and gas.

 

Maybe things are in phases though...

Yea... that is that Southside Computer Works. They used to be on Carson Street, and wasn't that bad to get to on the way home from work. Getting to Lawrenceville would be a PITA.

I hit every one I can find, I usually take a full day just to hit thrifts. Salvation Army on South Side, The Catholic Diocese store, Red, White,Blues, etc. On a few trips I've literally filled a full size conversion van or a car full and others I've only picked up a couple items. Good day or bad I try to get to pinball perfection if open but always grab a rare burger and beers at Nadine's. Everyone in the area should try to meet up some Saturday at pinball perfection for some gaming and beverages, just an idea.

Just made aware of this thread. Sitting 75 miles south of Pittsburgh for last 18 years. Thrifted the 'burgh back in the day. Would love to have a local/regional show.

Also just found this thread. I'm in the Pittsburgh 'burbs (Bethel Park). Would definitely love to have some kind of show close by.
