It's been a while, hasn't it? I didn't realize until just now that I didn't do a single one of these in July. But, there is a reason for my absence. You see, with that last big haul, I simply had to take a break from hunting. I didn't have room to sort any new treasure and really didn't have any money to buy new treasure anyway. While I still need to work on the money part of it, I have made enough room to start buying again, so I started going to garage sales again this weekend. I went for a full day Friday, but couldn't this Saturday because I had a family reunion to go to. Anyway, on to the treasures.






I know Marriott_Guy made me that awesome "collection stats" table and I've only used it once this year, but since my laptop crashed and I lost my collection list/official count, I haven't been putting it up. I've given up on trying to finish that list anytime this year, but I figured I can at least list my total expenditures and income. Now, when my laptop crashed, I lost my original list of what I bought and what I sold, but I was able to recreate a list based on my blog posts and things like PM's and eBay records. But, at the time I recreated the list, I had about $200 total profit less than I had reported in the last THC, so either I was high then, or I'm low now.

Damn, the nice hauls just keep on coming! Shocked
 
$2 for the Mario Statue is killer. I have the same one. It's a DS holder that was made for the original DS. Not sure if the DS Lite fits on it very well.
 
As always, I'm amazed at what you guys can find outside of specialty shops.
 
@bickman2k: I love it so much, it's a much better quality than one might expect. I would have never figured out it was a DS holder if the price sticker hadn't said "DS holder" on it, at least until you told me. And it does hold a DS Lite perfectly. My collection list also fits nicely.
 
Awesome hauls.
IMO boxes/manuals were the best deal.

BTW your Splinter Cell Double Agent is a variant. Wink
 
Nice haul as always.  I have to wonder, are those really the original holders for Bible Adventures and King of Kings?  I once had a bible-thumping friend of mine try to push some of those Color Dreams games on me, but I passed because I knew the games would suck.  Wish I wouldn't have, but I wasn't into collecting at the time.

Nice on the Super Advantage, even if it's only a box.
 
@Izret101: I didn't even notice that. I guess I'll have to dig it back out so I scan it and add it to the DB now.

@bombatomba: I wondered about the sleeves too, it seems like each title would have had its own sleeve, but they're not marked as to which title they belong to. I think I have the right one for Bible Adventures though, because the sleeve and the cart label have an Ark on them.
 
@ Mike I don't know if it was a Best Buy exclusive or just the original print run/shipment that had the car giveaway.
 
I dont see how you find this much stuff week after week...how many garage sales do you hit up on average?
 
@ganonbanned: A lot. On average, we generally start at 8 and go to 1 or 2 every Friday and Saturday. Some days are shorter and some are longer. I've tried counting, but always lose track after 5 or 10, but I'd say somewhere between 50-100 for the weekend.
Plus, the flea market has several hundred vendors, so I'm pretty much guaranteed to find something there.
