I've always been a fan of thrifting and finding goods at garage sales.. but recently I have been picking up some vintage games when I see a reasonable deal.
I am pretty new to this, but looking for a hobby to mesh my love of older console games, collecting, and selling some goods to make a little bit of cash in the process.

I'm using this space to keep track of where I picked these up and what I paid.

Primarily looking for:
Playstation 1 & 2
NES
SNES
N64
Gameboy
Sega dreamcast
Sega gensis

Not as interested in picking up consoles unless I see something I can't pass up



Always open to feedback, would love to facilitate a trade or something if I pick something up you might be looking for :)

A couple PS2 games





GTA - Goodwill $3
FFX - Half price books $4

A fair price for both games.. happy they are the black label and that vice city came with the poster.
I probably would have passed on FFX but I love that game lol

Not a lot of value here, but I will probably bundle together a "PS2 starter game bundle" ;)

Profit: $11/$0/-$11

Wario Land for gameboy



A lot of nostalgia with this game, I remember being 7 years old watching my neighbor play this game on a gameboy pocket lol

Both games - $5 at a garage sale

Profit: $16/$0/-$16

Star Ocean and Disgaea 2



Never played these titles personally, but there is always a market for RPGs


Clay fighters for SNES
Agent under fire for gamecube



Mediocre titles but SNES games are getting expensive and gamecube games can be kind of to come by
I blame those tiny discs lol


Tactics Ogre



Always pick up an Atlus published title but too bad it's disc only
This sale had an original playstation for $40 dollars and I opened it up to find this gem.

This game is really fun too, a precursor to final fantasy tactics.

All 5 are from a garage sale - $16

Profit: $34/$0/-$34

I need to make some sales lol

I try to be selective. I know people who buy up everything they see at a garage sale but I am not trying to have a box full of old sports titles in my house lol


Sold tactics ogre today for $25. Game in case sells easily for ~$50. Probably could've squeezed out more bug idgaf; already have a copy from my childhood :blush:

Profit:$34/$25/-$9
