Tons of sales all over! We hit 52 today, even having to pass up some unadvertised/signed sales on passing side streets. We had a long list to go through, and nearly doubled what we had with unadvertised sales. Today was the second highest day, with 60 yardsales being our most visited in a day.

There were apparently more Sega CD games other than Cliffhanger that we missed. The lady said her son had brought them over and she had already sold a few. The one we bought was the last game there. Never owned any Sega CD games or the system, so it was a cool find.

Vol. 44 of Nintendo Power is one of our favorite issues. For Dom, it was the Mega Man Enemies Robot Design Contest, where readers' designs were published over 4 pages. Mine was the Mario Paint Special booklet that was included, showing how to make Mario, Link, Samus, and other characters and pictures. I used that thing to death back then. The issue also had NES + SNES controller and Game Boy applique stickers, trading cards (I don't think they continued with them), and a paper model Star Fox (which I had put together long ago).

The first NES has a broken door which I might be able to fix with some super glue (the 2 broken pieces are still there). The second NES was sold to me under the pretense that it was "broken", and hardly worked. I'm guessing that a new 72-pin connector would do it fine, or perhaps a cleaning. The SNES seems to be in fine shape.

Gonna toss the RF adapter with the tape, and the "Game Kleen" (too junky). Might get rid of the SNES controller that's taped, dunno yet.

All in all, a pretty good day. The boxed NES games really made the day worthwhile, but I think we were hoping to find more considering all the stops we made. But you never know what you are gonna find, no matter how many sales you hit. We're hoping to enjoy a few more big weeks before the weather starts to cool!
