Let's get it on!
I thought it'd be cool to have one thread for us to share all our re-buy deals for 2012, especially with Garage Sale season right around the corner. I really hope there's not an all-inclusive thread like this already, I swear I looked. I'M NEW!! [excuse]
I call it 'urban safari hunting', because we traipse around all predatory like, then BAM! We 'get' something and have hunting high. This is where we can display our heads on our walls. And maybe inspire others to look places they normally wouldn't.... FOR PREY.
Places can include Garage Sales, Craigs List, Thrift Stores, Rummage Sales, Estate Sales, Flea Market (cries, I don't have any here), and meybe even ebay, since we hunt from our computer (like snipers). I know sadly, for myself, my Garage sale-ing will be severely hampered by gas prices this year, but maybe others will fare better. Stuff includes old and new toys, or even other really good deals on different type collectibles.
It's a little early for Garage Sales yet, but here's a Craigs List haul I just made to kick it off.
ALL THIS JUNK for $50. I know that's alot of money, especially for me, but the silver Mars Attacks ship goes for that often alone, and the 6 Men in Black Bendys go about $10 each, and those are things I really really wanted, as well as the Brain Disintegrator. Almost everything else can go for trade or sell!! SCORE!
So mabye the stuff I keep will almost be free in the end...
Honestly, it was worth part of the $50 just for the fun anyway. On the Craigs ad he had no pics at all, just a brief description with a few line names and the phrase 'lots of figures', and when I called him he was at work so couldn't give details. I went blind over to the house, really hoping he had the bendys', then when I got there it was just a HUGE box with all the cool biddy's peeking out. I was ecstatic when I saw the silver ship, bendys & ray gun. I am a huge DORK because that was FUN for me. DORK!
Oh, it's a small thing, but I was also pleasantly surprised to see Deep Space Nine Morn. I <3 him.
Blind shopping is really fun.
