Also got a gamecube with broadband adapter attached for $8

Few weeks ago I got a slim psx and genesis model 1(high definition graphics)ver for $14

Cool.


Just remind me, what's a thrift store? Is it what I would call a charity shop in the UK? They can be gaming goldmines.

people donated items mainly cloths, but other thing end up there.
then they sell the stuff very cheap.
alot of stuff is junk but worth a peek once in a while.

It's like a charity shop then. My Mum used to work for Cancer Research shop, and they used to get all sorts of things donated, and they would sell them on for charity.

My first 'proper' work tie came from there. I still have it. :) (I still like it, but it's 23 years old now at least and looks it :) )

None of the thrift stores here in the Northeast USA seem to ever have video games by me let alone 3DO offerings. :cry:
