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™, the Tape Monkeys™, 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

Almost ashamed to enter this one, in fact I purchased two boggle sets, the first set me back 50p at a car boot, but I sadly soon realised I had miscounted the dice and I was one short. So a week later I purchased another copy for £1.00 which I made sure was complete. I figure £1.50 for boggle is not the end of the world. It often seems that my cheapest purchases end up getting the most play.
Unplayed Avalon Hill 1st Edition (version in the picture) for $15 from a (very, very, very) FLGS. The box was opened and the Civilization cards were separated. The board has some slight warping, but the tokens are unpunched with no fallout, the player mats are still connected, and all cards and other components are accounted for. This was an absolute steal!
