Found a whole bushel basket o' fun old school Traveller stuff at Bookbuyer's (a used bookstore in Mountain View, CA) when I was visiting the Bay Area for KulbaCon.

This item still had the original map!

(It is very hard for me to pass up these old school Trav items when I come across them. Something about little books does it for me.)

$2.95

Many more bits to come...

All these items have some wear from use, but still well worth having.

$2.95 @ Bookbuyer's

New. 2002 edition as shown.

A nice looking little historical resource. (Probably deserves better than its current rating.)

Like many of the conventions I've been to, you can earn redeemable Con Money for distinguishing yourself in an RPG session that you can spend at a prize table.

I picked this up for $10 KublaBucks at KublaCon.

New for $0 actual dollars.

indigopotter and I found this hidden on the bottom shelf of the toy section in the Salvation Army.

It is missing the map and the dice, but the book is in pristine condition!

She spotted it and brought it out to me, where she said "It was TSR and looked old, so I grabbed it." I heartily endorsed this train of thought!

I thrift semi-regularly, but my RPG finds are rare. In my area, the only place I make any finds is Half-Price Books. But even then, for most of the RPG items they have, half price is over priced.

But, digging through the clearance rack, I found this for $1.00.

Online auction so the price wasn't incredible ($15 with shipping) but it had a bunch of the 'Heroes of...' supplement adventure books so I was pretty jazzed overall!
