It feels good to be back doing one of these after only a week, instead of a month like last time. Now, if I can just keep up the pace for the next couple weeks until school starts back up. Anyway, this week was a little slow for me, especially on Saturday with only one purchase the whole day. Luckily, the flea market on Sunday came through for me with a good purchase.
Found this at a sale marked $0.50. I offered $0.25 and it was accepted. Not that I wouldn't have paid $0.50, I just like seeing how low I can go and never like paying the asking price, even if it is good. At first, I thought I would have preferred if it was Mario instead of Sonic, but the more I think about it, the more I like Sonic. I have so many things with Mario on them, its a nice change of pace. What I found strange about this, is that it takes two C cells, and two D cells, why couldn't they make it to just take four of the same size? The parts of the board that are yellow move so they must have needed different batteries for that or something. Unfortunately, the score board doesn't work, but I'll open it up and check it because I'm thinking a gear is missing or something.
Found this at another sale with no price on it. I asked how much and the guy said to make an offer. So I said "a buck" like I always do when asks me to price their stuff. He thought about it, and came back with $2. I would have originally paid that, but after thinking about it, I decided I wouldn't use it and the box is pretty big so it would take up a good amount of space, and decided it wasn't worth more than $1 to me. So I declined his offer and put it back on the table, when he said "OK, you can have it for $1". It is just the stick and the box, no manual or packing material.
Grabbed this little gem for $5, one of the rare occasions I paid asking price because its hard to go down from $5 on anything worth more than that. I didn't even realize until I got home that it doesn't have the power cable, but I think I have an extra one. Plus, it had the Saturn controller and an Ethernet cable. The SMS will most likely be going up for sale (I haven't tested it yet) so if you want it, shoot me a PM.
The DKC book was my sole purchase Saturday. An entire day of garage saling without so much as seeing anything good but overpriced. The book seems to tell the story of DKC faithfully, but I'm only a couple chapters in. It's kind of neat to get the whole story behind one of my favorite games. Plus, it was only $0.25 and its in great shape. The bag of twist ties was in a free box at another sale. I was about out of these, so it was a welcome find. Any time I buy a controller or cable it comes loose, so I use these to keep everything organized.
This was my saving grace of the weekend. Any time I can find a sealed SNES game, I'm happy, even if it is a rerelease and the not the original release. The GBA game is also sealed. I paid $6 plus a loose SMB3 for all four games.
I snagged this from the vendor right after the one I got the last purchase. It was $5, which I thought was a good price, so I got it. Turns out, I paid just about what it goes for on eBay, but at least I didn't have to pay shipping. I should have known better since the seller was selling antiques. This thing is in fantastic shape though with the manual and the gun and the styrofoam.
Nice finds, I found a sonic pinball machine similar to that 2 weeks ago, I happily paid 3 bucks for it because it had the box and looked like the thing was never used. Also it had an electronic scoreboard that came off. Any idea what these things are worth? I can't find prices anywhere.
