Wow! We had a really great day! Hit 44 sales, nearly half of them unadvertised. Signs abound!

Our first 3 finds above were all found before 9am. The guy who had the TMNT tapes also had some old, dirty Legos, but was asking too much for what was there. Had to leave them behind.

The Full Throttle find really made Dom's day!

The Dreamcast pickup was a great experience. The guy selling them was totally cool. When we told him we were looking for videogames, he brought out the Dreamcast and games, and right away pointed out that the power adapter was missing and that the memory card batteries were dead. It was awesome that he was so honest. The N64 game was already out on a table so he said, "You know what, I'll throw this in for free." So we asked him how much he wanted for everything, expecting something like $20. He comes out with $5 - an awesome price! We asked if he could do $3, and without hesitation said "Sure, that's fine!" It was just a refreshing experience. He was honest, he wasn't trying to make a bunch of money, but just looking to get rid of something he no longer used, which resulted in a great deal for us! If only more people shared his mentality!

Not much else to report. All in all we got a lot of neat stuff and hardly spent any money. It was such a good feeling to see signs all over the place. I'd say the season is in full swing up here!

Hope everyone had a great day!
