Garage Sale finds August and September 2017
These last few months have been busy and the finds have been few. But there were a few bright spots in the last month or so. This may be the end of the the garage sale season at this point.
I didn’t get to many yard sales in August. I hit a few sales in early August and picked up Black Ops 2 for 360 to trade into Gamestop. I also hit up another sale that advertised 360 and Wii games. Most of the Wii games were junk. I did snag Burnout Paradise and Domination, Portal 2, a 3DS charger, Payday 2, a Pacman TV game and a SP charger. I paid around $17 for all of it
Not certain what I will do with the Pacman game; maybe give it as gift to someone. It wasn't until the 2nd weekend of September that I got a chance to go out again. I went to a yard sale that advertised a nerd purge. In the pics there were GBA, DS, PC, PS2, and other games. I arrived late and missed out on the GBA/DS games. There were tons of PC games and parts, but I picked through what was left of the console games. I walked away with two dualshock 3 controllers, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, Heavenly Sword, Half-life for ps2 and Timesplitters Future Perfect for PS2. All of this was $30 and I felt it was still a fantastic deal.
I had a few other garage sale like pickups. In August I hit up my local goodwill. I looked around and posted a set up Intec multi use component cables, which includes hookups for 360, PS2, and GC. There was also a complete copy of Baldur's Gate for PC with expansion.
There is something worth mentioning. I did have a sour yard sale experience in early September. I went to a sale that was advertising Nintendo DS systems, retro games and a modded Wii. The seller was not prepared for his 10 am start time. When I inquired about the Wii he couldn't tell me much about it. I wanted to offer less than $25 since it didn't have the wiimotes. The seller told me I had 5 mins to decide before he raised the price. I put it down and left.
At this point its mid September and fall is here. Yard sales are winding down, there are a few more I may go to in the next few weeks but I have a feeling by early October it will done for the season.
