Today was pretty decent. Beautiful weather and the sales weren't too bad. Hit 45 of them.

We picked up the Star Wars laserdisc thinking it was worth more than it is. We were interested in the laserdisc player that was with it, but not for the $25 asking price. We hope to pick one up for around $5 some day, just for the niche appeal. Still, it's neat to have.

Tried to buy a dirt-encrusted 6-button Genesis pad for a quarter, but was rebuffed.

Talked the N64 guy down from $25. We had to ask if he had any game stuff, and he went in and got that.

The broken PS2 seems to have a faulty drive. It boots just fine, but won't load any games. Anybody know if this is easy to fix? I seem to remember people talking about just needing to tighten a screw or something.

We always know we've reached the end of the day when people start telling us "we already sold some of that this morning". This is usually around 11am. So for all the stuff we got, there were still tons more out in the wild. It just goes to show that there ARE things out there to find, and you just have to get out and find them first. We try to stay optimistic and pretend that some old grandma bought the things we missed for her grandkids, instead of the much more probable flea market dealer.

There's still some time left in this yardsale season. I expect things to go pretty decently through October, depending on how cold it gets.
