This is the traditional monthly NON-Game thrift and bargain finds list.

Wait a minute. That's not a game! Oh well. Let us oooh and aaah over what you've found.

These lists may start empty but as always: add your items. Try to post a snapshot with your entry! 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. 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.

Last month's non-game thrift list:
Just shift the Picasso's aside and be amazed by the collection of valuables we tend to pick up.

Roger Zelazny's Chronicles of Amber, Vol 1 and 2.



These were at the High St. Ohio Thrift for quite a while marked $9.99. I was there on the day pink tags were 75% off so bought the set for $2.50.

At a church rummage sale this weekend found the Uberstix Empire State Building kit, complete with blueprints, for $5. This is part of their UberARC series of building kits.



I did a review of Uberstix about a year ago. They sent me a couple of the smaller kits. My boys love them, so even if they choose to not build the Empire State Building, they now have a ton of pieces to use for other projects.

I found the vinyl record of Fox and the Hound!

Besides collecting the Disney Classic movies, I also collect the vinyl records of them. This one is not easily found, so for me it's a great find.

I found a 2.5 liter Pyrex covered casserole dish in great condition (it was clean, not scratched, and basically looked like it was never used) at the Goodwill.

They only wanted $2.99 for it!!

It looks like this one:


It works fabulously in the microwave. I primarily use it to cook rice.

I managed to get to a few opp shops recently; at the first one, I found a copy of a 3-D jigsaw, Catherine Victorian house, 256 pieces, for AU$ 5. The pieces were still semi-assembled, and it had a handwritten note taped to the box saying it was complete. As my son has been quite interested in some of my 3-D jigsaws for a while, I bought this one, thinking that, it is reasonably simple to put together, and, if he is a bit rough with it, I won't mind terribly much.


A few stops later, at my favourite opp shop, I found the Wrebbit Big Ben 3-D jigsaw, which has 373 pieces, for AU$ 1.50. I spent a few happy days putting it together, and it turned out to be complete (Even the cardboard support pieces and their sprues were still there, as were many of the red-dotted pieces).

Sadly not a copy of ONTGT but in fact a printer. I have not had one all through college and now that I am a senior I figure it's high time to get a nice one. It's a Brother HL-2140 laser printer with toner still inside. Got it for 4$ and shall be used to print, print and play games.

One of the guys I've been working with and I have been talking about taking our kids out to shoot off some model rockets. He recently got his PhD and is moving to do his post-doc. His wife had found this at a GW for $1.99 he was going to build it with his son but its complexity was a bit much for the time we have to get out and launch. I brought in and gave him an easier model to build with his son and he gave the one his wife had thrifted:

$15 - Lego Castle #7097 Trolls' Mountain Fortress Set - think it's complete. Has 11 sealed bags (numbered 1 thru 9; and 2 bags for the giant trolls) plus 2 instruction booklets. Does have 4 loose pieces (3 walls? and a base) not sure if those came with the set and didn't come in a bag or were tossed in from another Lego set

I picked up a big stack of books at the various thrift stores I go to this month, including:

A World Lit Only By Fire, by William Manchester
Good Poems, edited by Garrison Keillor
Temples, Tombs, and Hieroglyphs: a Popular History of Ancient Egypt by Barbara Mertz (which I am currently reading!)

...and a few others that I can't remember right now.
