I love yard sales. Today, I found a complete copy of the 80's electronic RP
game 'The Dark Tower' for $2.  My husband has wanted one of these for years.
The tower works sporadically and may require repair, but considering its
age....

I also got one of those 'carry in your car, jump-start anywhere' battery
thingies for $5. I haggled the guy down from the marked price of $20. Late
autumn sales, people are desperate to move stuff before it gets stuck in
their garages all winter.

Hey, I am the garage sale king.  So far this summer I found two Dark
tower games for a combined $2.50.  I sold them on eBay for a combined
$240.  THe first one I found was at a house where the old lady was
having a yard sale with stuff that she was bringing down from her
attic.      Some of the stuff she was just throwing into a dumpster
and other stuff she was just setting on her porch or in her yard.  I
also picked up a box full of mego Planet of the Apes dolls and a POTA
treehouse/fort that she only wanted a buck for it.  I wish I knew more
about 19th Century books because she had a ton of them.  I picked up a
few of them, but I really have no clue as to value on them.  That was
one dumpster I was tempted to dive into.  Recently I just found a
stash of old atari 2600 games at the local flea market emporium for $2
each.  The stash contained quite a few rare ones including Q*bert's
Qubes which sells for over $100 on eBay and a single ender Xonox
cartridge of Spike's Peak which I can't even find on eBay, but does
list as extremely rare on Atariage.com.  I figure I made a couple
thousand dollars this year by just hitting garage sales on the way to
work.

This is why I either don't use eBay, or never bid more than 3-5 bucks
for anything.

Artillery duel RUTS spike's peak.  Mostly for the little soldiers that
show up when you actually hit the other dood.
