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.

Saw this at Goodwill. For $15! While that is probably still a bargain, that isn't very much of a thrift store price. Luckily, I already own a copy.

Found a single drawer file cabinet. Made of plastic, and only $3. Will accommodate hanging files. I plan to use this in my game room for player aids. I have a 4-drawer metal office cabinet elsewhere, but a) it's full of game stuff already, and b) it's too far from the game room!

Made in China. Three swords in scabbards with a little display rack.Not a real quality purchase, but cool, nonetheless. I should have put something next to them to show size, but the short one is about a foot-and-a-half long, and the longest one about 3 and 1/2 feet long. Yard sale for three dollars for the whole shebang.

Spent $1.25 for a (1989) third edition hardcover copy of The Times Atlas of World History - originally marked $85!

This is a coffee table book in the sense that you could screw four legs into it and use it as a coffee table.

Found this Ravensburger puzzle - couldn't pass up this cool iconic image, $1.99 at Savers; Going to assemble it to check for completeness - pieces are bagged so I am optimistic. If it passes, it will go to my Dad for Father's Day. The photo is from 1932...about the same vintage as my folks and the Skyscraper game shown!

I was really pumped to find The Spirit Pop-Up Graphic Novel by Will Eisner at Half Price Books! They were selling off remainders (brand new overstock) for only $5.98. This is a $35.00 book!

I love pop-ups and The Spirit, so this was a fantastic find for me!

A School Manual of English Etymology and Text Book of Derivatives, Prefixes, and Suffixes. 1873. What I found freaky is that this 19th Century school book is available as an Android app wow

Amazon does have everything!

http://www.amazon.com/school-manual-English-etymology-deriva...

Edit: For clarity - the Amazon link and the previous statement about an app have nothing to do with each other. Amazon just happens to have the actual same book.

$1, Willing Partners, Galax, VA (as part of their 1/2-off sale on toys):

My sister loves the original MLP toys, so this plush pony is an addition to her collection. It needs some cleaning and TLC, but overall it's in good shape.

At Unique, the same place I found Zooleretto, I found a Smith & Hawken out door table in the exact color I have been considering in chairs (though a different brand). This will go in the area of my firepit when my patio is finished. $14.99. Saddest thing I missed getting a vintage Wurlitzer student piano for $19.99. Another guy beat me by a couple of minutes and was plugging it in to check it when I walked up and saw it. We chatted a bit. Saw him at check out and we rapped a bit more and he asked what I was going to buy it and I mentioned my son. My son's been a little intimidated with the keyboard plugged into the Mac; this he could have just turned on. He then offered it to me, and I politely turned him down as I wasn't 100% confident my son would play it. He had a vintage Rhodes, so didn't want to deprive a musician.

Apart from Navia Dratp and Looping Louie, my last visit to my favourite opp shop yielded a complete Early Learning Tools "Build It" construction set for 2-6 year olds for AU$7. Here's an image from the ELC toys Web site:



The box was fairly beaten up, one flap had been ripped off, and the instructions had been repaired for with sticky tape, but all bits are there, and in very good shape. This is something I can see my son having lots of fun with.

Found a LEGO Mindstorm Robotic Invention kit for $8 @ mb. The box is huge and a little beat up, but I think these still go for a good price on the 'Bay.


Edit: After a little research, it looks like the used ones go for anywhere between $30 and $200. At the very least, the control box seems to always go for at least $30, so I'm pleased.

Found Kenner's #401 Spirograph set at the GW for $3.38. It's from 1967.

I'm not generally much for vintage toys, but this one is in near-perfect condition! It has been well-used (as evidenced by all the cool pictures in the box) but all the bits and pieces are present and unbroken, the box is un-split and un-smushed, and even the original instruction book and original pens are here! Looks like the pens (long since dried out) take standard ballpoint refills, so they should be easy to rejuvenate. Dick Blick's is sure to have the right size refill paper, too.

After a bit of washing up to remove the ink from the gears, this will make a great Christmas present!

I walked into the ARC yesterday and on my sprint to the games catch a glance of a large soft music case. After checking out the games I double back and open it up. At 1st I think it's a stand up bass but start to realize it's too small for that, and figure it's a cello.
I take it out and fool with it a moment or two trying to play Mary Had a Little Lamb. I pull in a scavenger or two - circling around me waiting for me to put it down so they can snag it.
My ARC is notoriously bad at pricing music instruments - there have been too many First Act or no name broken guitars/mandolins priced at the $60 and up range.
I take a deep breath and look at the price - $200
ouch! A bit risky as ARC doesn't give cash refunds - they give store credit instead and exactly in between paychecks for me as well.
I ask one of the clerks if they would hold it so I could go do some research before buying, writing down the manufacturer and model #.
I get a phone call and get the person on the other line to look it up for me they're getting nothing on the manufacturer and that they make decent instruments with prices between $1000 - $40,000 for their cellos. It seems like a no brainer so decide to buy it.
I took it in to a local music store today to have it checked out. It is a learner model so at the low end of the price range, but have a new instrument for my daughter to play (she's taking violin lessons) and if it doesn't fit with us can flip it and get a months rent out of it.
R. Paesold cello, generic bow, soft case, and extra set of lightly used strings - $200

These are the days when I wonder if I could thrift for a living.


Not the actual one I got, will take a photo and upload later

For years, my husband has told me of his yearning for a rock polisher when he was young. How he would go look at it in a store once a week for MONTHS. How his parents were resistant to his pleas for it. How saaaadddd it was that he'd been denied the rock polisher.

Today he went off camping with our youngest, and the eldest & I took a load of stuff to Goodwill. Where we found, Ta Da! A rock polisher. When we opened it up, it had a refill box packed tidily inside. $4, we now have a father's day present. I tried it out when we got home, it works.

We went to visit another thrift store, because our stated aim was Shorts For Mommy, and the GW had not been forthcoming. We looked over the games, and voila! Another refill kit. In shrink. Still with its original price tag of $14.99. Ours for $2.22.

We can not WAIT to give this to him.

For $3.38 @ GW, the original 1956 hardcover boxed set of James R. Newman's four-volume classic "The World of Mathematics"!

It has a slightly musty smell and one edge of the box is cracked, but the books have apparently never been read.

As a lifelong math enthusiast, I am thrilled to add such a fine-looking original edition to my bookshelves.



The box on my set is plain, with no sign of ever having had the glue-on labels shown in the photo. But the spines look the same.

Stopped at an estate sale this past weekend and was able to score 49/96 issues of the History of the Second World War. The Barbarossa issue was on top and caught my eye. Oh, how I wish all of the issues had been there!

The whole lot only cost me $2. As a bonus, I got a copy of War Monthly featuring the Flying Fortress.

I picked up three Lego sets at a garage sale for $5 total. All were included in their boxes, and two of them look unopened.

$2 - Looks unopened

Racers - Jump Riders


$2 - Looks unopened
Set #8632
Agents - Mission 2: Swamp Raid


$1 - Opened
Set #7622
Indiana Jones - Race for the Stolen Treasure


The woman who was running the garage sale said that she was selling these for someone else who didn't think he'd be able to sell these at all. She said he'd be back to drop off many more tomorrow. Too bad I have an out-of-town wedding to go to...
