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.

$2.44 (25% off monday, then tax) from Savers (Ft Lowell). Not sure if it's complete, yet, but I'm pretty sure it has the 3 tiles my other copy is missing, at least. And the bag! Works for me. Now I have a complete one and a LOT of extra tiles.
My sister brought this over to me and asked if I wanted it. I guess if I would have said no, she would have kept it or sold it. $3 at Goodwill. No board, of course, and I haven't had a chance to inventory it.
Gorgeous copy of Labyrinth! Cardinal version - and I can't figure out the year. The picture isn't the same as this - it's a solid red box (not the white box with the red stripe at the top) in great condition - and it has two original metal balls! Excellent dovetail joins, nice and hefty. They just don't make them like this anymore.
$2.99 at Savers. In great shape. My grandsons will love it. A bonus was some extras: a complete set of Cars cards, an almost complete set of Chance cards, a Pittie, and a tire. Anyone needing a couple of replacement parts shoot me a GM. Oh, there was even 20 cents in the box so make the cost $2.79!
I managed to get out to two opp shops today (which was very needed, as we have a rather difficult family member stay with us for 2 weeks - deeeeep breaths), and found this! No idea if it's complete, but it has lots of cards, and cost AU$ 2.99.
This has actually been on my wish list since I discovered through a thrift list that it exists, as I really like the Anno Domini family, which only exists in German.
Edit: There may be 2 cards missing, but I could live with that
