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.
The Weekly Thrift List Wayback Machine The Grand Vizier is maintaining a list of all the weekly thrift lists through time, and will be adding stats and interesting tidbits for each week. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/48522

Alright, alright, alright. I know it's a silly game, but I have a three year-old daughter and she loves it. The local hospice thrift shop sold this game (near-perfect condition) to me for a mere 50 cents. I'm not complaining. The look of delight on my daughter's face was worth much, much more.
Found the 1970 version of this game. It is in excellent shape and the box, while showing heavy shelf wear is actually intact and structurally sound (which I can't say for the other two versions of this I found this year). $1.99 at GW in Phoenix.
Was completely stoked to find this, my daughter was too. Get it home and then I see the sticker on the box that says "Parts Copy". Grrrr! Would really like to complete this. Needs 7-8 pieces total. Anyone? $1 church sale
This was a surprise. $1 church sale. Missing 4 chits but could be replaced using the chit borders that were still in box. And yes I did count -twice- to make sure. It is unlikely I will ever have time/space to play. For trade.
