Best deal I have found was Thrusday at Salvation Army Thrift Store nearby. A GBA SP with a copy of Road Rash for Gameboy Color for $4.00
Also got a six button genny controller for $1.99 at the same place.
Then last but not least a official Nintendo DSi charger for $.75 at another place close by.
That's Hacking Awsome

Not a thrift or garage sale find.

But, since we are cheating, after buying a Brand new PSP 3001 last friday from Gamestop, and buying a Sony M2 16GB card with Sandisk Pro Duo adapter off ebay for little under $30.

Bought a handful of PSone classics off of PSN the same day I got it. Then last night after I got home from work, check my email before going to bed, and Sony sent me a email thanking me for buying a PSPgo, and gave me a code for 3 free full PSP titles to download. Little Big Planet, SOCOM:FireTeam Bravo 3, and Ratchet and Clank:Size Matters.

$76 worth of Downloadable games for free, hell yes!!

Back again. Picked up a Dreamcast at Goodwill today for $2.00. It is covered in Stickers but seems to be in good shape. Hopefully it will work.
Also got a copy of OSX Panther for $2.99 at Salvation Army, the same one I got GBA SP from the other day.

At a resale store today, I picked up an Atomic Purple N64, with expansion pack, and a pair of IR wireless controllers for $18.

I also found a seemingly-NIB dance pad for PS2, XBox, and Gamecube for $2 at a Goodwill.

Picked up a couple of 32x games for my quest of a complete set. Fahrenheit was ~$6.50 shipped and Wrestlemania was ~$11 shipped. I'm now 5 away from a complete US collection, and currently working on a deal on half.com for one and working out a scheme of taking advantage for high trade-in values of consoles on eStarland for a couple more.

Released as a packaged sega cd/32x bundle.

Check out that sweet mullet on the cover.

Oh hey look at that, someone at work threw away a perfectly good Mac Classic! The case is in good shape and the screen works properly!
Image

It's even an early model!
Image

Wait, it doesn't boot up. Better check the connections on the motherboard. Everything looks fine here...

DO NOT TOUCH (Click for a bigger copy)

Image

Better pull the logic board. Thanks for putting all the stubborn connectors directly under the fragile CRT neck, Apple! Image (The solution was to undo the clip, then stick a flathead screwdriver through those two holes alternating sides until the connector came loose.)
Image

Image
Image

Always pull your PRAM batteries before long-term storage, kids. (Click for a bigger copy)
Image

Well I guess it's parts for the malfunctioning SE/30 then! (Its screen is very dim and the floppy drive hasn't worked in years.) Looks like it has the same CRT. (Click for a bigger copy)
Image

The plan is to put the useful parts from this into the SE/30, then clean up the Classic case, wirewheel its frame, and stuff it to the gills with NAS parts. (Sorry, O2, but I like these better.)

Just for craps and grins I've got the Classic board soaking in a bucket full of warm water and dish detergent. If anything it will clean up the back panel connectors so I can stealth the PC connections coming from the ITX board. 8)

Also, don't let anyone tell you you have to have a $3,000 Nikon camera to take decent pictures. I did all of these with my old 4 megapixel Powershot A80.
