This is the traditional monthly Thrift & Bargain Dumpster™.


A fitting place for discussing rejects and leftovers spotted while thrifting and bargain hunting. If you please: cast those items in the T&B-Dumpster!

Add items you left wherever you were sniffing around. Don't fill the dumpster with truckloads of Monopolies, Trivial Somethings and other regular leftovers. But rather add peculiar items, items that looked as if the cat dragged them in or items that caught your eye in some other special way.
Regular stuff accompanied by a good story is obviously also worth listing. As a guideline, take this into consideration: "Do the thrifters want to know about this?"

This list is also well suited to discuss those should-I-go-back-for-it items. Feedback you will get, from either end of the scale, from 'how could you, you amateur!' to 'best decision you ever made, you are the King!'

In the description, try to mention the state the game was in, the asking price, the location and other details worth knowing about. Oh... and please close the lid behind you. Thanks.

Last month's T&B-Dumpster:
Wear protective gear before opening and be prepared to fend off any scattering rats.
Unwanted Rejects - Thrift/Bargain Finds Left Behind: November 2011

Our GeekGuild:
Please mind the stacks of games. Don't mention the musty smell and try not to sneeze.
The Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters thanks you.

I already have two copies of this game and if it is incomplete there is no one on the Geek searching for parts. Too bad; it is a decent game although it doesn't follow the plot of the story at all. $1.99 at Salvation Army in Lawndale California.

2 copies $1.50 each @ St. Vinnie's Monroe WI. I will go back if anyone is interested.

I went back and picked them both up. I'm going to see who needs parts in the Spare Parts geeklist.

I left behind a copy of Sequence in very good condition (though I did not check whether it was complete) for AU$ 3 at a Melbourne Vinnie's. I had a quick look at the rules and it didn't really grab me, although I now think that perhaps I should have picked this up for my mother-in-law. If it's still there next time, I probably will.

Edit: I went back the next day, and it was gone - hopefully to a good home!

This was a more modern version of Uncle Wiggily for $3.99 I think. I'd heard of it, but wasn't motivated to buy it even though it looked to be in pretty good condition. Perhaps if it had been one of the really old versions....

Panzer Leader - $4.99 at Value Village (Ottawa & Weber in Kitchener)
I'm sure it's good - and it very well may be complete - but there was no way I would want to inventory this.

I walked around the VV with this for a bit ( straight off of the cart ) before putting it back.

$40 Bookman's - I actually picked this up due to the return guarantee, just so I could see what it was like - figured it wasn't something I'd likely keep. I was right, though it's in great shape & mostly unpunched. I know I won't play it. Going back when I get a chance.

I saw this lying flat on the shelf so knew it had been gone through, but was curious to see what was wrong with it. The wrap-around tape had been pulled back and scrunched in a mangled ball already. I noticed the box had water damage and some mold/mildew stains on the lid. Upon opening the box I found the rules were water damaged and were stuck to the bottom of the game board. I didn't look any further. If I didn't already own the game I probably would have tried to salvaged it -if complete. I'm posting in case any locals want it, but I'm guessing everyone else was already there and inspected it and came to the same conclusion I did.

$1.91 Volunteers of America, Indianola.

edit/mistakedly posted this on the October 2011 list as that was the link from the current thrift list. It pays to read!

This one had the outsert used as an insert. Geez it was pretty with all the minis in their proper places, but for $6.99 I didn't need a 5th copy. Woodbury GW.

12/15: Went back to pick this up for $3.49. Goes on the Christmas gift pile.
