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 Weekly Thrift List Wayback Machine The Grand Vizier is maintaining a list of all the weekly thrift lists through time, and will be adding stats and interesting tidbits for each week. Your Thrift Store Bargain Finds Through Time

$1 at Goodwill - one deck of Magic cards. Looks like someone's Affinity deck, circa 2006 (it included some Ravnica lands) - Broodstars, a Blinkmoth Nexus, Foil Shrapnel Blast -- sadly, no Ravagers, Divining Tops or Aether Vials... but hey, not bad for a buck!
.99 at GW. Seems complete although the instructions don't say how many cards are in the deck. Should have taken a closer look at the cards, as they're in rougher shape than I would have thought judging by the condition of the box.
Stale pastry is hollow succor to a man who is bereft of ostrich.
Complete, game opened but parts still in shrink, $1.20 at Value World. Who ever originally bought this game never found the time to try it, but they did manage to nearly split the board seams by folding it incorrectly and forcing it back in the box.
Didn't expect the charity shops to be open on Good Friday (or the other shops that I had to visit, but hey), but after a drought of nothing but mass market tat, near mint, with river expansion, for 95p!
I was at Superior Thrift for the first time in over a month. I had expected a good haul as usual, but I could immediately see there weren't as many games on the shelves as usual. Large gaps in the line of boxes (on end) that are usually cramed in there. My first pass and I really didn't see much that I was in need of or worth the effort. As I passed back, I caought sight of Shipwrecked. I have the small box version, but I hadn't seen the large one, which is quite heavy what with the glass "gemstones" it comes with. I can attest this is complete and was played maybe once if at all.
Found at Superior thrift for $0.85 with senior discount
By now, one of the staff at Superior Thrift was putting up new items on the shelves and as I went back to the start, I located a still sealed copy of Apples to Apples Party Box. It was marked $3.99, but with senior discount it was $3.48 out the door.
