Visited 1 sale down the street. The Lego box still has the $40 price tag on it, all bags inside are sealed. Great find!

Even though the skies were gray, we still hit up 16 sales. Only a couple "rain" cancellations, but we came across several unadvertised sales while driving.

The first two finds listed were from Craigslist earlier this week. The 7800 was listed for "$1500" (I think she meant $15), I offered $5, and a few days later the deal was sealed. The box has some wear and some tape along the side, but overall it's in pretty good shape. I had to actually go in the woman's apartment to get it, and the kitchen was full of dirty plates, bowls, etc. In the sink, on the counters, on the table, on the chairs, even on the floor! I was awed by the sight. The woman informed me that her husband bought it for $2 at a yardsale a few years ago. I was happy paying the $5, and to get out of there.

The 25 Atari 2600 games were the other Craigslist find. Can't beat less than 25 cents a game!

RE: DS was our first find today. He was asking $12-15, but he very reluctantly took $5. He also had PDZ and COD2 for 360, asking $18 a piece. At the same sale, we spoke with another woman 'saling who informed us she had a ton of old-school videogames in her basement. We exchanged contact info, so hopefully that amounts to something!

Later, we went to a sale where this young guy, probably late teens, went right over to Dom and shook his hand, saying "Hey, how you been, man?". I thought maybe he knew the kid, but apparently he had never seen him before in his life. Crazy yardsale people.

We got the Mario comic at a sale full of drunk people. One of their tables had a box full of TV-recorded porn and a coffee mug shaped like boobs. We just bought the comic.

The videos were at the final sale of the day, asking $10, but took $3.

Pretty good week!
