    Default Finally, a find worth sharing (huge pic heavy)

    I used to be a collector just like the rest of you. I really loved the hunt whether it was the goodwill, rummages, craigslist, whatever. But over the years it just got to be too much to store all that stuff. We were already living in a 5 pound box with 10 pounds of regular stuff, just no room for 3 more pounds of game stuff. So i sold it all off about 4-5 years ago. I still read the monthly finds thread here. Vicariously its still exciting to see what people have found and the deals that were had. I still goto the goodwill on occasion. And while i walk the entire store the first place i check is the video games and electronics. I'll pick up a FF7 here or Chase the Chuckwagon there only to resell. But there is plenty i pass on. In my mind i figure either Goodwill Hunter will be picking it up or some novice collector will be giddy over an R4 or R5 find. That makes me smile because i remember the feeling.
    Anyway, i was at the goodwill the other day and while walking passed the houseware type stuff i had to sidestep into one of the isles because an employee was coming through with a cart. As i was face to face with the shelf in front of me I see this

    And while its not sealed it looks like it just came off the store shelf


    There looks to be about 4-5 cups missing.

    But on the shelf below I see this



    Dixie cups are dated 1990 and the cup/bowl/plate set is dated 1989.

    I'm tickled to find this stuff, but i'm gonna sell. Anybody have an idea on value?
    Thanks

    I've got the 'A' cup holder at my parents house. I remember saving up the $$ to get it.

    No clue on value though
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    I have a Zelda set just like that. I think I paid $20 for the set.
