LGR Thrifts: New Shops, More Goodwills

Sunday, March 23rd, 2014

Tag along with me as I go out thrifting, in search of games and interesting goodies at local shops! Three Goodwill stores, a Salvation Army, and two consignment shops in this episode.

    Very nice video (once again)! 🙂
    Congratulations on your finds!
    While there are no Goodwill-stores over here in Germany, there are similar stores and warehouses (e.g. Caritas, which is run by the catholic church).
    You may find of old PC-games there (up to and including big boxed games), maybe some old hardware (I once bought a video editing machine by Macrosystem there) and almost never console games (too many ebay-resellers and similar leeches out hunting). You can be lucky one day, and then again find nothing of any interest for months.
    And then “Lost Treasures”… yeah, I know these kinda shops. I call them “museums”, because if you return there in 5 years, the very same stuff will still be around due to the ridiculous pricing. 😉
    There’s a very big one (with two stores) in Dresden called “Games Broker”, which even LOOKS like a museum (actually, very nice, with some Alien Resurrection-artwork done by a local artist). And, no, I don’t buy there anything if I visit the city!
    If you charge me eBay-prices I most certainly demand eBay-*SERVICE* in return. (The very same goes for shabby flea market-resellers.)
    It’s much nicer to visit smaller shops (without dollar signs in their eyes) and the local flea markets.
    So, carry on and good hunting!

    Haha! Seriously nice score on that 5160, that’s amazing! I’m loving the new face-cam you’re doing too, I could literally SEE the adrenaline when you spotted that beast. Awesome vid man! Bravo! =)

    its sorta creepy that you treat your new computer acquisitions like I do. it was like watching myself finding a retro computer, with that grin and reading all the little labels and the case caressing…. I’ve had amazing luck myself the last few weeks, found a boxed mac se fdhd, boxed voodoo 5500 for Mac, and just yesterday a boxed atari 1040st with monitors/megafile 30. Goodwill pretty much sucks for old console games but its a retro PC goldmine for big box games.
