Well Timed

Needed an AC adapter for the SNES find last weekend, which led to this $20 total haul from a local game store. PTO qualifies as a great find for a measly $1 (and it’s complete) while I’ve been hunting for an original box for Arnold Palmer Golf for some time. Weird coincidence/timing I found it the same week he died. 

Also, ESPN Speedworld isn’t worth much but it’s not easy to come by if you’re going for a compete set.

On Flea-k

Around $40 for everything here (not pictured are two Tiger Woods Xbox 360 games) at an annual flea market. Good score despite the lack of controllers or AC adapter for the SNES.

Bundling

After a trade-in, this lot came to $40 at a local game store. Decided to start buying last gen games in collections/bundles to save on space. It’s not much, but replacing God of War and Infamous with those collections makes room for two additional shelf spots.

Turn the Channel

My first ever find for the Fairchild Channel F, and while a controller isn’t as exciting as the console or games, it’s a step forward. And a measly quarter for Onimusha Tactics? Sure, toss that in top random flea market vendor.

Foolsball

A rare CD-i find in the wild for $2. Rarer still to find a CD-i game at a flea market in Fremont, Ohio.

Combative 

$6 at a flea market. Not the best but Ace Combat can be erased from my want list. Been meaning to replay it for a while. 

Also, what’s a key ingredient to a great flea market? Expired beef jerky and sausage shoved into a cabinet with Axe deodorant. Such things can get no better.

Now You’re Playing With Power (Pad) 

Half off thrifting day and rummage sale day. Mostly resale items except for the Xbox games. Not pictured is a 3D Avatar Blu-ray and a slew of character twin bed sheets. Bed sheets? Yes. 

If you want something else to hunt while you’re thrifting, scour the bedding. ’80s era bed sheets/sleeping bags can command a decent return. Real Ghostbusters, Batman, Ninja Turtles… Etc. As long as condition is great, they can sell.

Linking Up

Well isn’t this a weird one to find buried between stuffed animals at Goodwill? At $2, you can’t say no to a Japanese import plush Link.

Change of Scenery 

Changing up the view a little for this small $11 find at a local game store. The Genesis NBA Live ’98 can be scratched from the wish list, although the SNES version remains.

Flea Infested 

When it’s this hot out, indoor flea markets are the only choice. For $8, this isn’t such a bad deal.
