Man, I still remember getting a sealed box of FE for $22. Homelands was one of the last sets before I finally got out. (I had a couple packs of Alliances and Unglued before liquidating.)

Though, if you have any duplicate anime LDs, I may be interested in them if I don't already own it. Same applies to @Sid_Ceaser .

This past weekend was pretty hot in Baltimore, but there were still enough yard sales happening to make it worth going out. First sale was a major let down though; the woman running it said she had games from the early 00's, but when I got there it was just two PS1 controllers and a PS1 GameShark. Turns out she thought that was the game. Sigh. Still, I grabbed those and a multi-tool.

After that I drove across town to a sale that mentioned game systems and grabbed a Wii U and handful of games.. MUCH more satisfying than that first sale.

Next up were a couple of community sales. First one was smaller, but I grabbed Diddy Kong Racing DS and a PS2 with some sports games. Not a great find, but I probably made the kid's day.

Second community sale was great, despite other game hunters already going through. Asked about games at one, and the sellers brought out a huge stack of Wii/Wii U games. Score! Later on, an older couple also brought out some games but they turned out to be Dreamcast bootlegs their son picked up in the Philippines. I passed since I was low on cash. At the last sale I went to, another couple's older son brought out some OG XBox games and then a Watermelon N64 plus some games! I think something was funky with the N64, but I was able to salvage the shell for an RGB modded system I've been working on.

Everything for about $38.

The case has a little divider that opens up that I don't think the store saw as there was a bunch of games behind it. They had an identical red set for the same price - unfortunately there was no games in that one.

This morning at the flea market in a batch of cds I found a legit import 2-cd release of the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Original Soundtrack for $1.

Everything is mint except no spine card. It was the only game related thing he had. Weird.

Yard sales were pretty dead here this past weekend, but I did a little scouting ahead and managed to pick a few good ones. Everything in the first pic was from the one sale I hit on Saturday and was $20. Stuff in the second pic were from a couple multi-family sales I hit on Sunday and was also $20 for everything. Final Fantasy Anthology was incomplete, but I thought it might be what I needed to complete my copy. Unfortunately I misremembered and it was stuff I already had (case, manual, and FFV disc), albeit in good condition. Pez stuff was grabbed for the kiddo.

I finally tracked down the same softball glove I lost a few years back. It's not even considered a "good glove", but it's the best glove I've ever owned. When I first started my search, I didn't even know what brand it was, so it took me quite a while to setup the saved search on eBay. Then yesterday it finally showed up for $15 shipped.

It'll never feel the same as the one you lost (I speak from experience), but at least it will be closer than any other glove

I don't think it's the very same glove, just the exact same model. I'm 99% sure my brother-in-law has my original. I'm less worried about the wear difference on this glove because the material on the back doesn't need to be broken in like leather. I did buy several leather gloves, looking for one I'd like as much. The other one I have is okay, but I'm glad to have this model back.

I generally don't go to yard sales that list video games, especially not ones where they list the specific consoles. By doing so they show that they know what they have (usually), but more importantly it brings more people out. I decided to pop into this one though as the pictures showed some things I might like. Sure enough, I arrived at 7:58 for an 8am yard sale and the ladies were joking with me that I was two minutes early and that people were showing up 30min early while they were still setting up. Still got a good haul:

Everything was $2 each. Guardians of the Galaxy was $3 at a different sale.

Yard sales are drying up and things are getting more competitive; I got beat to a box of games at the first yard sale I went to even though it wasn't listed on craigslist. I still found stuff there, and I managed to get to another sale a little early so I could get first dibs on a box I saw on Facebook Marketplace. Everything in the first pic was $10 total, and came from a couple of different sales. Everything in the second and third pics was all from the same yard sale and was $50. It all needs A LOT of love, but so far I've manage to get the SNES cleaned up and working. The bowling game was originally coated in that red plastic they use on Maker's Mark bottles, and when I asked the seller why he told that apparently tequila was involved. Checks out.

People here literally shutdown while you walk up their driveway before their listed closing time. I still try and talk but the answer is always go away come back tomorrow blah blah blah.

I want to find people that need the money enough to stay open a little longer. One guy walked over to the garage door wall remote, told me to drop whatever I had, and kicked me out. Two hours before his closing time. Rude as hell when I've got cash in hand.

Guess that depends on if you were hovering over a bunch of stuff with your phone in hand snapping pics and looking up prices. I'd probably get grumpy too. But if you're legitimately just browsing, long as you weren't there for half an hour, that's kinda jerky.

Better you than Gamestop I guess, but they would have given much, much more than that in cash. That's so fudgey.

I'd lean to the latter, most likely an angry parent selling their kid's gaming crap as punishment. If it were theft, they'd wanna try to get top dollar for that stuff. Fire Emblem alone goes for 30-40+, if it's still a hot game for fans.

I was thinking the same thing, Gamestop would have done well beyond his asking price...
He seemed like a regular teenage/young adult type. Maybe a bit on the socially awkward side, but really nice.
We actually met twice today, because a few of the DS games were missing from their cases and he went back and found them.

He didn't strike me as a thief or as someone with financial/marital hardships, etc., more so as someone who really wanted the new Fortnite skin.
Still, at less than a dollar a game, I'm puzzled.

Lowe's is clearing out this specific heavy duty tide 115oz for as low as $4.67 and as much as $8.99

image

Here's a brickseek link to see if you have it in your area https://brickseek.com/lowes-inventory-checker/?sku...

The Tide will probably be in a box in the top shelf where you'll have to ask an employee to help. Box number is 76532

image

Lastly you can visit https://www.pgeveryday.com/offers and print out $3 off Tide coupons but the site is a bit annoying as I struggled to print coupons when it asked to verify phone number by text, if it asks that of you look for the option to receive a phone call with the code instead

I myself stocked up with 9 Tide Heavy Duty 115oz bottles for roughly $29.

Where do the people at the swap meets in Oakland get all their stuff? It's like the goodwill outlet took a dump there. Some people even giving everything away for free that they didn't sell at the end of the day because they seemingly cycle through mass amounts of crap. And people with a bunch of switches for $180 each and stuff like that. Im assuming there's a massive pallet auction somewhere around there.

Got this off a college student for $50 within the first 15 minutes of him posting, ignore $75. That was him increasing the price after the fact when he got bombarded with offers, but he was a man of his word and sold to me for $50

Got this to fire once originally to what @ryanflucas said was the "Kernel Panic" screen but was unable to get into internet recovery. Started looking up recalls for this model and sent it in to Apple free under the "keyboard" recall.



Got a fully working Mac today from Apple for that original $50 I paid, invoice says they swapped everything inside


Been chatting with our resident Apple Guru @ryanflucas and he let me know that they probably just replaced it cause they didn't wanna wait for an out of stock Keyboard and that it's a MacBook (Retina, 12 inch Early 2015), 256 GB SSD, 8 GB RAM. It's an entry level macbook with no way to increase storage so i'm listing it on Letgo

I decided to kill some time between yard sales this Saturday and stopped by Savers, and was surprised to find everything in the store was 50% off. They had a few N64 bundles and I grabbed this one for $100. Kind of pricey for a thrift store, but I've been looking for this model of N64 so I can mod it and the games were worth it.

image

After that I went out to a sale and unfortunately I was beat there by a guy who had apparently contacted the seller and knew there were games. Full disclosure: I did, too, but I didn't know exactly what would be there. Anyway, the guy got a bunch of really great stuff: first party NES games, first party GCN games, Silent Hill games for PS2, and more. I picked up the stuff he didn't grab or missed for $60. It's not a bad haul, but I would have liked to grab the rest for sure.

At the Flea Market on Sunday I found the first GN for "Paper Girls" and two of the Grant Morrison "Batman & Robin" GN's for a buck each. Good find.

So to be clear that bundle was $200 before the mark-down @Gildon_Dancypants ? Just want to make sure I'm not brainfarting.

Took that UHD player and movies I paid $70 for, an old Chromecast, and an iPad I've had in a drawer for a couple years that needs a screen replacement and traded for a Spider-Man edition PS4 Pro with 5 games and 2 controllers.

@Gypsy It was $190 originally, mark down and tax brought it to $100.

I got these Wii disc only games, $5 for all, at Goodwill. Was surprised given its Boston and probably a lot of thrift type flippers. Most available, probably going to do gamestop for a quick buck on the cheapos. I also saw this a-hole record flipper who was hogging a whole 2 crates of maybe buys and refusing to let another customer look through them as he decided (cough cough looked up) if he wanted him. Sad thing was the guy was in his 60s.... shouldn't you know your crap if you do this? You shouldn't have to look them up. If it looks obscure, grab it and don't waste other peoples time.

Honestly GameStop with a credit promo boost is probably the best bet for all of them.

I'm thinking theres going to be a price spike for Ducktales on Wii U. Apparently after the 9th downloads won't be available. I bought a sealed copy, and 2 used ones from gamestop, 1 for keeps

... weren't some of those retail versions just a code in a box, or am I confusing it with another game?

You are correct but this game appears to be on a disc.

Oh, I hadn't thought about that possibility.

Ok, I get the negs if its because I'm flipping some of these, but I do recommend you order online or check your local Gamestop if you have any interest in playing.

I just bought my first machine from eBay. I've been doing a lot of buying and selling this past year. This spot of my game room has rotated from Congo to Star Trek to Lord of the Rings. I realize that machines are crazy expensive, but since I've been in the hobby I've ended up making money on every single machines I've purchased, this is the only way I could justify spending $5,000 on an adult toy.

Finally found a manual for my copy of Star Ocean: Second Story.

Comes with a front case (back case is another game) and Disk 2. The rest is for trade if someone's needing a Disk 2 and/or a replacement front case/cover.
