Dumpster Diving

Yeah okay I know some of you are going to think this is weird or gross or trashy. I don’t care really, think what you will. Some places throw away perfectly good working items to make room for new things. I hate waste and I also love free stuff. So check this out (not going to say from where). Controllers, Bluetooth headsets, car chargers, usb chargers, rechargeable batteries with chargers, bags, games, stereo headsets, cords, cases, toys and tons more! All thrown away in the trash.

8/17/2013 Yard Sale Picks

Really good Saturday yard sale day mainly due to one particular yard sale on the Mainline. I purchased a beautiful inlay jewelry box, 3 bracelets and a Necklace and spent $25. Here are some pictures. I believe they are ivory but not 100% on that. I will update next weekend after I take them to a jeweler. Also gold bracelet is marked 18k, need to get that checked out as well, could be my best deal ever. Woohoo.

8/3/2013 Yard Sale Picks

This past weekend was a pretty good one as far as sales go. I got a whole bunch of items in a wide range. For this post I will show the highlight which are four 2-Head 25 cent candy machines on solid wood stands. Purchased at a price of $70 for the four of them. A quick check showed them selling for $125 a piece on ebay. They are going to be too much of a pain to ship though so I will probably local auction/craigslist them.

7/27/2013 Yard Sale Picks

This was a weekend of Nintendo!!!! First yard sale stop had a big storage container of vintage video games. Couldn’t believe it was still there because there were about 10 people already at the sale. There are NES, Super Nintendo and a couple Sega Genesis games. 56 total video games for $50. Another sale on Saturday morning I got a NES system, a bunch of different controllers for it, joystick, Gun, some other accessories and about 5 games for $40. I love vintage video game stuff:)

Isn’t it funny how some weeks you will fight people over one item at a sale and every sale is like that that week. But at any given time there is exactly what you are looking for and no one is there or interested but you. I guess its just a reminder to keep your head up and not give up looking.
