    I one time found a nba game for the sega genesis at a goodwill. Or rather a case for a game. The employee said that she didn't know where the game was and suspected it was stolen.I now this doesn't count but at my college dorm's swap table I got a 14" TV and a N64 for free.

                            I bought some speakers from the 70's for the cloth covers to use on a home-made tube guitar amp my dad and I built.

                            In the same trip, I picked up the first White Stripes cd, the Smiths greatest hits and a soundtrack to Star Ocean for $1 a piece. They had a huge vhs section, but our vcr recently crapped out on me.

                                    Last week I found a N64 with Mario Kart 64, Super Mario 64, Wave Race and Fifa 64. Paid 25 and sold it for 55 on eBay.

                                    I hate eBay though.
