It's been a while, but landed myself a thrift find I'm pretty happy about!

Found this guy hanging out in the wild at my local thrift store.

$2.99 sealed!!!

Gex for 3DO!!!

 

Heh. That's the game which was inside my FZ-1 when I bought it at the flea market. Pretty decent game. It's no Space Pirates, though.

It's been a while since I've posted anything since I've been so busy and haven't been buying much. I've been hitting the flea market pretty regularly recently, though, since I've started selling on eBay instead of doing back breaking manual labour.

The other day I found an old Osborne OSS2 portable computer for only $20. I also bought a TRS-80 Color Computer 2 and a Timex Sinclair 1000 computer, along with a boxed copy of SNAFU (one of my favourite Intellivision games) for the Aquarius computer for $20 from a fairly new vendor at the market who I've sort of become buddies with. He's got my number now and is going to call me whenever he comes across older computers in the storage containers he buys. Also picked up a Macintosh SE with keyboard, two mice, external 3.5" floppy drive and external HDD for $50. I don't have pictures for it, though, since it's still in the trunk of my car.

I love the flea market lifestyle.
