This is the traditional monthly Thrift & Bargain Dumpster™.

A fitting place for discussing rejects and leftovers spotted while thrifting and bargain hunting. If you please: cast those items in the T&B-Dumpster!

Add items you left wherever you were sniffing around. Don't fill the dumpster with truckloads of Monopolies, Trivial Somethings and other regular leftovers. But rather add peculiar items, items that looked as if the cat dragged them in or items that caught your eye in some other special way.
Regular stuff accompanied by a good story is obviously also worth listing. As a guideline, take this into consideration: "Do the thrifters want to know about this?"

This list is also well suited to discuss those should-I-go-back-for-it items. Feedback you will get, from either end of the scale, from 'how could you, you amateur!' to 'best decision you ever made, you are the King!'

In the description, try to mention the state the game was in, the asking price, the location and other details worth knowing about. Oh... and please close the lid behind you. Thanks.

Last month's T&B-Dumpster:
Wear protective gear before opening and be prepared to fend off any scattering rats.
Unwanted Rejects - Thrift/Bargain Finds Left Behind: March 2011


Our GeekGuild:
Please mind the stacks of games. Don't mention the musty smell and try not to sneeze.
The Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters thanks you.

Left behind for $6.99. I know this has decent ebait value, but the price was high, the box was very beat up, and the market for this seems to have cooled off a bit lately. Anyone have luck recently selling one with a beat up box?

Hmm.. I just ran across one of these for $5.99, definitely used, and missing some pieces (cars, bridge, some turbos and some boulders were there). Decided I didn't need to take up that much space for something I probably wouldn't play, so I left it behind at the Renton Goodwill. I have no clue what the trade/sell value on this is, but the huge box discouraged me from getting it for that purpose.

I saw a really nice copy of this at the Half Price Books in Apple Valley, really near mint condition. Too bad I already own a copy and they wanted $30 for it.

$4.98 at Good Will

Appeared to be complete. I didn't get it to make any noise, but that could have been dead batteries.

It was tempting, but the box is very, very large and I don't have any personal interest in it. It would have just been ebay or trade fodder.

If anybody out there is interested, I'll go back and pick it up and ship it for cost.

Mulled it over for a bit. Appeared to be in good condition. Just not something I think I will ever play, and it didn't appear to be good for trades so I let it go.

$1.99 new in shrink.

I've seen this on in the thrift lists a few times, but it just never appealed to me. And again I didn't see it making a trade for me very soon, and I already have a half dozen games in the trade pile at home to get to good homes.

Left behind this one with the phone today at GW. It looked good and was only $3.88. I figured it had some eBay value (2 are listed for $26/ea. BIN right now) but I really don't want to spend my time eBaying games.

I've recently left behind many much better than this. Looks like my newfound thrift discipline is here to stay!

This gave was $2.15 at the local thrift. It was mint, and complete, but was annoying to get back into the box. Hopefully, a family with young children will pick it up and enjoy it.

Michael Barnes Graves edition, as pictured. They wanted $12.99 for it at GW, and the wood box was in such bad shape that I didn't even bother to ask them to take it out of the Display Case of Especially Valuable Junk so I could count the pieces.

Maybe if it had been in good condition and complete, but not this one. yuk
