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.
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.
I purchased this Pachislo Skill Stop Slot Machine with a Cat Theme at a yard sale in the morning for $50. Works good and is a lot of fun with music and lights and LED animation. It also has the manual, door key to get inside and about a hundred tokens. It has about 6 difference skill stop settings so you can start easy if you want and then switch it to hard mode. I’m going to have some fun with this before selling but it is for sale if anyone is interested in purchasing 🙂
I won this item at an auction this Saturday. It is an Arnold Steam Sterilizer for medical instruments with patent dated from the late 1800’s. It was made by Wilmot Castle & co in Rochester, NY. It has a US Navy stamp on the top as well. This steam sterilizer is made of heavy copper and has double walls and doors.
I am a lover of all things flea market, yard, estate and garage sales. And lets not forget auctions, thrift stores and free finds on the side of the road.
I have been going to these places with my dad since I could walk. This is a site dedicated to what I find each week.
I am a re-seller through eBay, Craigslist and auctions in my area.
I hope that people will contribute with their finds as well. I would like to share with others and exchange experiences and advice when it comes to value age or other information.
