As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you, now remain in my love. You did not choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit, fruit that will last. -- Jesus Christ
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.

AMVETS East SD. A "Bag-o-stuff" fir $1.95 caught my eye because I saw the edge of this game inside. Turned out there we two complete copies in good condition, as well as a dozed dice, a cribbage board, a copy of LCR
and some candles for a mid-winter Hebrew holiday (can't remember how to spell it and I have already thrown the box of half-melted candles away )
Found this one at a Savers for $2. My first find! The game looks to be in amazing shape. Punched. I haven't counted all the counters, but it looks complete and definitely has all the other components. I'm excited! I can see how this can get addicting.
$2.99, Auburn Salvation Army. Likely to go into a Thrifty Santa package.
I also got a package of "Catalox" vintage poker chips, with original $.75 price tag for $.99, and a really nice bead loom for $1.99.
There was a vintage Rebound for $1.99 (no ball bearings, or I might have gotten it), and some really awesome science kits for $1.99. You could tell they were really expensive, and some of them didn't even look used.
There was a planet/space game by University Games, but it didn't have instructions, and a storytelling game in a tin (maybe Finding Nemo?), one of the decks still in shrink, but no instructions.
Scored a copy of this early edition of the game for $5 at our local Comic Con event last weekend (I haven't inventoried it yet, but it appears to be complete)! I'm very curious to compare this to the newer edition (which I have).
$3 - missing threat tile but I see there are 2 different ones in the files section. also missing the 4 extra adventure jewels which isn't a huge deal and one night king tile is creased but only visisble on its backside
