Really, you gotta get overseas with the Epoch Cassette Vision Jr and the Tomy Pyuuta (Japanese Tutor) Jr. The Japanese did Jr. first.

When I say, that Thrift had enough Quesadilla makers to fill a McMansion, is that a good thing or a bad thing? Classic scenes Stuff, oh wonderful stuff. Thrifting is a trivial pursuit: Naive artwork: Oooh 'lectronics. TV NO WORK NO MORE Naked boy! Scenes from Arizona- Bad Omens And Yes, I will stop making vertical oriented pictures since TypePad doesn't rotate 'em. Continue reading

Old game informers, served as a nice place to stuff that Fallout 3 map. Choose your own adventure library hardback edition for dems kids. Stack of 3DO jewel case games. I don't know much about these, I just buy what I don't already have. And some Playstations stuff with a few good titles like Super Puzzle Fighter II and Parappa the Rappa. The modern D&D set was too cheap to pass up. I looked inside and it has markers (little paperboard playing pieces) which I hate when they are punched because it sucks to count them. Perhaps I can pay... Continue reading

What to expect when you're thrift shopping. Tiny TVs Tortila (sic) Cooker and Bobble Hedz I'm not buying so much because I'm not shopping so much, so I might as well take pictures of what I'm seeing 'in the field'. Continue reading

The DDR is sealed, which is nice. I had to do some serious talking to get the Indian lady at the thrift store to sell me those manuals. I'm sure I overpaid, but it was the thrill of the argument. PC games, Genesis, Gameboy. A few novels. Clearly I buy too many games. Continue reading

Hot Lixx, DOA, standing in from of the dead stuff pile. One of the only toy guitars from the 80s worth messing around with. RIP. I've got bags under my eyes. Loot pile. Let's unload it shall we? Sega channel loose. Genesis = garbage when priced over $5. Free wood dice fished out of the garbage bin with permission. I don't know why!? Insert thrift store bags here. Atari days are few and far between. I'll take these half off. Boxed Pocket Rockers. Just for the 80s Fisher Price font. I'll be giving this to a friend. And DDR in... Continue reading

First post: ThriftStoreArmy is where you post your *interesting* thrift scores. Link to your scores in the comments and I'll pick the interesting stuff for the front page. Short comments may be included. Anecdotes appreciated. Serialized anonymous usernames starting with 'thriftshopper' recommended. Avoid geographic localization. Thrift shoppers are paranoid, so don't encourage them. 'People of thrift stores' pictures are also appreciated. Continue reading

Audiophile vinyl enthusiasts will predictably poo-poo anything short of their setup, or their fantasy setup. The rest of us want to suffer the conveniences of modern life and listen to their records in the car, at work, underwater, whereever. We all choose to make sacrifices. I wish this thing was around when I bought my vinyl ripping Ion USB turntable from Newegg for $100. It would have cost me more, but it probably would have been worthwhile. The Ion is a mere toy.
