See, the row of sheds that he was located at were torn out awhile back and I had no idea where he moved to. With miles of rows to cover, finding him by blind luck wasn't really an option. He also sells at another small Tuesday flea market that my Uncle goes to (and I used to frequent) so he was able to get the seller's new location. And incredibly, the location was correct.

    I never part and price with him, I basically take what I want unless he's offering crazy cheap sales and have him total it up at the end. He always gives me a better price than most but honestly his prices have doubled over what I used to pay - but it's still about half of what everyone else pays so it's no big deal. The games below ended up totaling $45.00.



    SMS - After Burner (complete)
    SMS - California Games (complete)
    SMS - Cyborg Hunter (no booklet)
    SMS - Aztec Adventure (loose)
    SMS - Cloud Master (loose)
    SMS - Joe Montana Football (loose)
    SMS - Miracle Warriors (loose)
    SMS - Rampage (loose)
    SMS - Thunder Blade (loose)
    GEN - Klax (loose)
    GEN - Sword of Vermilion (loose)
    GEN - Tiny Toon Adventures Buster's Hidden Treasure (loose)
    SNES - Super The Empire Strikes Back (loose)
    SNES - Super Return of the Jedi (loose)
    N64 - Pilotwings 64 (loose)
    NES - Karnov (loose)
    PS1 - Extreme Pinball (complete)
    GBA - Activision Anthology (loose)

    The copy of Buster's Hidden Treasure doesn't seem to want to work but I have yet to disassemble it and give it a hard cleaning. Why is it every copy of Super The Empire Strikes Back I ever come across is beat to shit? Turns out that I already had a couple of the SMS games so I'll offer those up to my brother for half what I paid. I was pretty psyched about finding a copy of Activision Anthology for the GBA and Pilotwings 64 as well.

    Haha dude, i just bought stuff from that guy 2 weeks ago! I got Michel Jackson's moon walker for 2 bucks, Gouels and ghosts for the genesis for 2, and A nomad and gamegear (with master system converter) for 15. It totally remember seeing those master system games, wanted them, but i didnt have the money for them :l

    I love that flea market, it rocks. Sorry for stealing the good though :P

    I have a loose copy of Shadow of Destiny for the PC. It's really not that good on the PC IMO, the controls are terrible with a keyboard and it ran slow even though the PC I played it on was well above the minimum requirements(even at the lowest settings). It really feels and controls like a console game that was ported to the PC, which it actually is. I was looking forward to playing it and when I finally found a copy I was let down.

    I got a copy Shaw Brothers: Shadow Whip for $2. I've been hankering for a cheesy kung fu flick so I thought this might just hit the spot. An excerpt from the only Amazon review of it is "If you are not careful, you may overdose from all the whip action.". Looks like a good pick

    There were not many booths at the local flea market today, since it was pretty cold out. The only other thing I got was a Canon A20 2.1 MP digital camera in decent condition for $4. I'm going to clean it up and if it works correctly it's going to eBay. If broken I'm going to get another "as-is" lot of powershots ready. People who repair these things will buy big lots of broken ones for parts.

    That flea market sucks to be honest, too many people making a living off reciprocating the same junk over and over. I prefer the Capitol Swap for better deals. That one vendor though is someone I've dealt with for almost ten years, across multiple flea markets. He used to have a lot more stuff though and a much bigger diverse mix.

    But yeah, he's a good guy and gives you a realistic price on everything. I used to drop hundreds almost every week buying from him. These days that's not really an option for me and he really doesn't have the oddball inventory he once had to warrant it anyway. Too many years of picking over his inventory has left it pretty bare from what it once was but he always gets new stuff in.

    Finally found a copy of Firefighter F.D. 18 for PS2 in the wild, after searching for a couple years.

    $14.99 for a NM copy is OK with me.

    Also scored Ghosthunter, Jak 3 and Ring of Red for $3 each.
    RIP bargora, you will be greatly missed.That is how we do things on Giedion Prime.

    Customer Appreciation Weekend at the Goodwills around here (half off your highest priced item)…and after a few fruitful visits, I feel very appreciated :



    Hit the Halo Mega Bloks jackpot with these sets being opened, but appearing to be complete….between $2.99 and $9.99 (actually $4.99) for each set. Love those Target returns!

    Also got a shrinked PSP “Silent Hill Experience” ??? for $2.99, a Complete PS2 Sonic Heroes for $2.99 (actually $1.50), and a shrinked GameBoy Color Evil Knievel for $3.99 (actually $1.99).

    The icing on the cake was a lights and sound model of the Enterprise from the recent reboot of the series…$1.99….thank you back, Goodwill!

    Everything here except the N64 console I scored at a goodwill for 5$


    I almost missed it too. The controllers are perfect. Only one good game though; Wave Race 64 players choice...

    Was bored so



    The price tag is hilarious; someone paid 30$ for this game even though it originally sold for 30$ new since it's players choice hah.

    I bought about 30 DVDs over the last couple of days, the pick of the bunch was Barfly (1987) which can sell for a fair bit of money on Ebay. Also bought Metroid Trilogy (a "steelbook" type case that I haven't seen before) and Sin and Punishment Star Successor for $40 all together from another store.

    It's been a little over a month since I last posted something here on DP (I just haven't felt like posting) But I got such a great find today I just had to post it.

    Anyway I found this at a local thrift store hidden on a small shelf in such a way that nobody could see in it.



    boxed copies of Dr. Mario, Monopoly and Championship Bowling and loose copies of Bible Buffet, Gauntlet II and Skull and Crossbones + a Game Genie.

    and an nes with all the hook ups 4 controllers and a four score.

    But all this isn't why this was such a good find these are.



    Complete boxed copies of Dragon Warrior I,III and IV and a boxed copy of Dragon Warrior II. all this for $25

    Now the only question is what to do with the DW games as I have all 4 of them on other systems already.

    I'll NEVER TELL!! nah, it's down here in Baltimore it's called the Village Thrift Store, I'm not sure if it's part of a chain but it's a very streaky store. sometimes you'll go 6 months without finding anything really good then all of a sudden JACK POT! then it'll go dry again.

    I think it's been in somebody attic because when I found it every thing was covered in dust. (I think you can see how dirty the nes four score still is in the pic) so I think someone just cleared out their attic and decided to get rid of those "old dusty nintendo games"

    Kasperky 6 month anti-virus software $3.00
    F-1 Race(GB) factory sealed $4.00
    Marvel Vs Capcom(DC) $3.00
    Power Stone(DC) $3.00

    These were all Goodwill finds. I was surprised to see a factory sealed original Gameboy game there. It's in pretty good condition too but I wish it was something I actually wanted. And when I went back there today they had the two Dreamcast games. For whatever reason the Goodwill's around here have really been getting some quality stock in 2011. In 2010 I'd be lucky to find a decent score once every 4-6 months but this year I find something good pretty much every other week.
