This is the traditional weekly thrift and bargain finds list.
These lists may start empty, but as always, add your items.
Put in what you consider a bargain, tell us how much you paid and the place you got it from. Bargains can be thrift store finds or any second-hand purchases or discounted boardgames bought new. Don't forget to add your encounters with the Thrift Store Irritant Squad and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.
The Thrift Store/Bargain Finds List Wayback Machine: The Grand Vizier is maintaining a list of all the weekly lists through time. He is also adding stats and interesting tidbits for us thrifty geeks. Your Thrift Store Bargain Finds Through Time (with links to all previous lists)

Limited internet access these days. Will still check-in to view mail and log games. Just won't be participating as much in forums for the near future.
So this afternoon, Mary said she wanted to hit the DI before I went to work. She wanted to get some more heavy-duty sheet protectors like the ones she got on Saturday. Of course, the other pack had sold since then. In the mean time, I hit the games section. Not much new in a couple days. I did see this little card game. Basically just your classic Memory with pictures of sushi ingredients with some bonus cards thrown in. Mostly I got it just because it is a beautiful set of cards. One deck was still wrapped, not in shrink, but with a paper strap similar to the way Japanese noodles are wrapped. Complete for a buck.
Week is starting off slow, only this to report so far. I am missing a couple pieces for a set I already have so I did not bother doing an in store inventory, or really inspect it much at all. This seems to have been a big mistake as I missed a little info that may have changed my opinion on the purchase. Did not notice it at first but it looks like there is some, well it looks like a mixture of vomit and cat hair. It is bagged and in quarantine right now. It may need to be burned.
