Found a neat little gem at Goodwill...

In fantastic condition! Only missing the remote, but it has a full carrying case that wraps around it. Only $11~

 

Surprisingly sharp picture all things considered, and the DVD player works on it. 

For those curious, model is EWC09D5.

In the laundry room of my apartment building, there is an area for people to leave items that they want to share with others. Last week, I found a Legend of Zelda coffee mug:

It is not the most attractive video game collectible in my collection, but it is an official Nintendo product, and it is difficult to beat a price of free! I do not know which, if any, specific game this relates to. There is a copyright date of 2017 on the bottom.

I had an apartment with the same type of laundry room table! It was probably meant for folding clothes, but it was most definitely the free stuff table. I found an original Xbox there before. It ended up having a disc tray problem, but Halo was inside, and I scored an extra s controller. 

 

I also found wrapping paper of dogs and cats in Santa hats that I’ve been using to wrap all manor of presents for the last 5 or so years.

Well I got a LUCKY HIT by random chance. Family said they had old tube TVs, so I took a look at them. Honestly figured it was gonna be old cheap sets, but turns out I struck unintentional gold. 

 

Sony Triniton KV-32FV27 with an official stand. Shelf is lacking pegs, and the glass doors fell off and broke during movement... but I'm quite happy with this get.

Also a 27" Sylvania. It works well enough but only one input. I have no need for it, so I've already posted it up in a Freebies thread for local pickup.

If you want to put the shelf back in/up - check the hardware bins at an Ace Hardware (or similar) for the shelf pegs.

Wood working stores will them too. But, they will be more expensive.

 

Every time anything with a peg gets moved around here, at least one ends up missing.

Or I find the pegs end up in a junk drawer and the furniture is long gone. :roll:

Local church had their mega garage sale for the first time since covid. Picked these up on their second day when everything is 50% off.

Not bad for $4. All games are complete and the orange zapper has the nunchuk but no remote.
