Went home for thanksgiving and did a little hunting. I found a blue 3DS, New Super Mario Bros 2 Edition 3DS XL, 4 Pokémon games and 3 other games for $80. Also got Resident Evil 3 for Dreamcast for $3. The coolest find was the Data East Collection on Wii. It looked cool so I grabbed It. Didn't know It was worth so much

I had an interesting find at Goodwill today. Bought the Farscape movie (sealed) for $3, but also got this for $6.

Not sure how it found its way into Goodwill, but I'm not complaining.

Random donations. This Saturday night is the annual charity auction. 90 percent of the gift certificates being auctioned will be for unkosher food.

Technically he can't keep unclean food in the building. There's ways around that rule in the spirit of charity.

I see my business clients from his congregation all the time in places like McDonalds. They freak out thinking I'm a spy and clam up, "I'm only here for the coffee!!!". I've offered them burgers but they always giggle and run away. I mean hell you're what 65? I'm not going to go snitch to the rabbi on you.

Sometimes I walk in and he runs up to me with booze and says "quick, take this and put it in your trunk". I do and he is sighing and saying that someone donated it and he had to get it out of the building since it's not kosher. Food wise just about everything is Kosher, unless fast food. If you see a letter U in a circle on a package, that's an American Kosher council marking. Technically means OU for Kosher but not Kosher enough to be eaten on passover.

Someone who has no idea what the fudge they are selling. Here's another example from four days ago. I paid $7 a piece for each copy of Orleans. Solid deal, but they are actually the Kickstarter Deluxe edition. They fetch around $250 a piece.

Got a Switch today for $170 CIB from a guy on the Facebook Marketplace. His explanation was that the rent was overdue and thought he'd be able to flip it for profit long before that after he bought it from Meijer on Black Friday. Said he got a $30 giftcard for buying one and proceeded to buy an extra one with that giftcard to scalp and sell local.

I think the majority of people who were still looking to pick up a Switch for the holidays probably got their hands on them by the end of black friday, they certainly weren't scarce. Nintendo did good. Sucks that he dumped that much money into it and essentially had to eat 30%, I think used systems are finally about to start heading towards "affordable" now. But $170's a hell of a get

Probably will be the last NCAA game ever made due that player rights lawsuit defeat. I've owned a copy of it for years and still play it. The public servers are down, but it still has an active community playing it with updated rosters. Good find.

That's a bullcrap story. Why buy an extra one to flip only to sell it at a nearly 40% loss instead of returning it well within the window? Shenanigans.

Good deal though, hopefully not at the expense of someone else's theft.

I haven't handled any negatives since the late 1980s, so I'm not sure if they could be damaged by a modern scanner. They should be fine, right?

Edit: Also this same booth had lots of promo shots of Prince and a few other artists a couple of weeks ago. I'm betting it was from the same storage unit.

Yes. StVin has the best organized store ever but then the inventory is a letdown.

Do tell. Those aisle racks are beautiful though, almost like the custom ones you find in Half Price Books. It's like having a magnificent interior designer for a abortion clinic. Nobody shopping would care.

Goodwill is usually a total letdown though on that block/area. I was surprised.

$12 in the showcase for these minus boxes wrapped together:
Lego Architecture Rockafeller Center w/manual and all pieces
Lego Architecture Sears Tower w/manual and all pieces
Lego Architecture Empire State Building w/manual and all pieces

$3 for Lego Master Builder Series Box containing two large block template parts for Lego trains (unrelated), a few random blocks from the set the box is for, Master Builder book (worth more then the rest), random Lego Architecture manual for Big Ben, additional random Lego Architecture manual for Empire State Building.

$2 for the Captain Planet game.

The only thing I found at SVDP was a Cusinart Coffeemaker compatible with K-Cups for $14.88. I googled it in store to check out if it was decent, and found it selling new right now on Amazon for $99. This unit is brand new with manual, minus only the box and foam.

I own about half the Lego Architecture series with an ongoing total investment of about $50. These are with all pieces and manuals, and in many cases retail boxes. Goodwill looks and says oh basic lego, no special parts or mini figures, so lets say $5. It's great.

On another note, I was running late and having a off day when I started out at Goodwill. I usually have my beats earbuds in my ears listening to whatever while I browse the racks. I'm so used to guys coming up to me and calling me whatever cool sounding name because I'm a tall white guy wearing Samuel Jackson style Kangol hats. I'm regularly called dude, boss, da man, bro, whatever. I just nod and move on.

Well this guy that looked like George Lopez approached me tonight at Goodwill and said "hey boss, what up man!" and I just nodded and said hey! and continued browsing. He starts randomly telling me about his day, his kids, and how he's going to some Christmas party. I'm sort of oblivious at this point but I must have said some random filler comment like "awesome" or "sounds like jolly good fun" or whatever. I finish the 4 shelve rack and when I look up he hands me this flyer and says "I can't wait to see you there, God Bless You". I figured out he invited me to a dinner at some hispanic church. I would have tossed the pamphlet except I noticed about 5 or so other people staring at me from afar. I figured his other church friends were all hanging out there too. So I just kept on and didn't toss it until I got back to the car. lol

It's in two weeks. The suspense is still building in him I'm sure.

I'm keeping those but selling others. I have a bunch of Star Wars I plan on selling soon. A bunch of Creator, Ninjago.

I found a bunch of things for eBay, but I also found a copy of the Clerks 2 soundtrack CD, which I didn't own. I didn't realize it until my hunting buddy pointed it out to me... it's signed by Kevin Smith.

o_O

Oh and I also found the soundtrack for Postal, "Music To Go Postal By".

I'm contemplating selling my CoreGrafx with two controllers, accessories, TurboEverdrive. It's fun but I can run this all off my Raspberry Pi and MacMini emulation station too so it's more of a niche item for me.
