The Official "Thrift finds" Thread

Recommended Posts

Five pickups today.

 

$3 for the NES Klax with sleeve. It was listed at $6, but it was half price for the color tag.

$2 for Omega Race.

$2 for Porky's.

$2 for Jungle Hunt.

$2 for Entombed.

 

Now I need to decide which four 2600 carts now get to leave with my 1 in 1 out policy for that system.

Shockingly enough, there are still some garage sale items to find.

 

Picked up the ADAM a few weekends ago for $10! Didn't really need a second one, but for $10...

 

Picked up all the boxed games AND a boxed Sears 6 switch unit for $10 as well. I kept the games, but gave the unit to my nephew since he needed it.

More garage sale booty found by a neighbor for me. Nothing too rare (best item was a 7800 Planet Smashers), but a lot of manuals to add to the collection. Only $5 for everything! Now I gotta clean off the layer of barn dust!

We had a set of those wireless sticks back in the day, man were they awful! Great score though! Xenophobe is a tough one to find too. I still need it after years of collecting. :(

And finally to catch up with the rest of my recent purchases, a couple ebay scores. I was happy to pick these up for .99! I also picked up the early model Atari variety too (but can't find the pic I took now). Now if I could only find the hex disk joysticks...

Might not mean a lot to anyone else, but I got a free Apple LaserWriter Select 360 and went to the thrift store a couple days later and happened to find 3 boxes of toner for the exact model for only $7 :)

Some nice finds today. First around the corner from me was that lot for $5.

Then a couple miles away for $20 (I think I overpaid)

 

post-22364-0-57933000-1312659298_thumb.jpg

 

Around the corner from that were these two for $1

And finally why you should always ask if they have games.

.......$10

At one of the last remaining Wherehouse stores that hasn't become a FYE...

 

Electroplankton is sealed and was $29.99. More than I usually like to pay for a game, but understanding that's still a fair price overall. Puyo Pop Fever was $7.99.

Garage sale find today for $1. Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri was included in the box.

I went to a rummage sale yesterday and everything was free! I ended up getting this beauty as well as a nice CRT computer monitor, some speakers, and a bunch of cassette tapes and record albums.

If I'm not mistaken that is the same model unit my parents bought at JCPenny, for my 16th birthday back in the day. :thumbsup: I've got a photo some where at my mothers house. Will have to dig it up.

$10 on craigslist. Does anybody have a matching controller?

Crap forgot the picture.

 

post-22364-0-98476200-1312772541_thumb.jpg

 

I've got one of those, too. No controller, though.

It's the perfect dopey-ass N64 for playing dopey-ass N64 games, hands-down. Looks funny with Doom 64 sticking out of it while Pikachu's cheek glows.
