    The channel selector is set to 3 as is the TV, and when I switch on the Genesis it goes from static to a black screen so I know the system is doing something...I just cant see what. I am trying to get an eliminator for it (i think it might be a electromagnetic charge or something, i found it in a dusty box and already tried dusting off all its components with compressed air) so thats my last guess...

          The only things I've found recently were a McDonald's glass with the Fry Guys on it and one of those pinchy rubber coin purses from a bank in the town I was born in.
          Streaks on the china, never mattered before, who cares.

                        I went to the thrift store today, and all their prices were 1/2 off! VHS's, originally 75 cents each, were only 37 cents each! I found a lot of VHS treasures today, as well as some jewelry and a board game.

                        VHS's I found:

                        The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
                        Episodes:
                        Party Poohper
                        A Bird in the Hand
                        A Pooh Day Afternoon

                        I didn't have these episodes on VHS at home, so this was a great find for me!

                        Care Bears
                        Episodes:
                        Lotsa Heart's Wish
                        Order on the Court

                        The Honeymooners: Hidden Episodes
                        Episodes:
                        Hair Raising Tale
                        Finger Man

                        The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle Volume 2: Birth of Bullwinkle

                        Rugrats: Decade in Diapers, Volume 1
                        Episodes:
                        Angelica Orders Out
                        The First Cut
                        Reptar on Ice
                        No Bones About It
                        Be My Valentine
                        Including the Rugrats Pilot Episode!

                        A Home-made VHS supposedly including (I haven't watched it yet):

                        The Mouse and the Mayflower
                        Smurfs and the Magic Flute
                        The Ewoh Adventure

                        I also got the VHS movie Kermit's Swamp Years

                        It's a Wonderful Life on VHS

                        TWO Sesame Street home videos:

                        Sing Yourself Silly! circa 1990.
                        Count It Higher circa 1988

                        A special video called "Voices that Care" where a ton of singers and celebrities get together in 1991 to sing for USO and the Armed Forces. The VHS case it comes in even has a picture on the back of all the celebrities that are in the video!

                        TWO Babysitter's Club videos! I taped this series off Disney when I was a child, so maybe I already have these episodes, but I wanted to get the "official" releases also:

                        Claudia and the Mystery of the Secret Passage
                        The Baby Sitters and the Boy Sitters

                        A video called Michael Jordan's Playground, a video from 1991 telling of Michael Jordan's career. Imagine if they had made that video in 1998! I'm giving this to my Dad for Christmas, since he likes Michael Jordan.

                        TWO of Nick Jr.'s Little Bear VHS's:

                        Little Bear: Friends
                        Episodes:
                        Emily's Visit
                        I'll Be You, You'll Be Me
                        Lucy Needs a Friend
                        Princess Duck

                        Little Bear: Family Tales (I haven't watched it yet and there's no case with this tape, so I don't know which episodes are on this tape)

                        Punky Brewster: Winning Isn't Everything (animated)

                        I also got, count them, FOUR of Disney's Sing Along Songs VHS's:

                        Friend Like Me
                        Campout at Walk Disney World
                        Let's Go to the Circus!
                        Disneyland Fun

                        I also got a Teenage Mutant Turtles episode called "The Shredder is Splintered"

                        The final VHS I got was another home-made one with, supposedly (haven't watched this one either) the Wonderful World of Disney stuff. Can't wait to see this one!

                        I also got a board game. I used to love playing the Memory game when I was younger, and I found a Winnie the Pooh version of it for 75 cents at the thrift store!

                        I also got a DVD of Garfield specials called Garfield Travel Adventures, which includes:

                        Garfield in the Rough
                        Garfield in Paradise
                        Garfield Goes Hollywood

                        Oh yes, I also found a nice church statuette for Mom - she's into those Christmas villages and puts her's up on the entertainment center every year near Christmas.

                        Whew! And what was the total at the cash register? Well, I thought I'd have to pay over $20, but I did not - it was only $17.33! I could not have gotten these videos and other finds at Dollar General or any other stores for that cheap!!!

                        I think I had a good day and found some good stuff.
                        You cannot leave the magic - Down at Fraggle Rock!

                        Anyone who sings like that should be dragged out into the street and shot - Garfield

                        I'm not messy. I'm organizationally challenged ! -Garfield

                            I was at the local thrift store last week and there were two Sega Genesis consoles for sale...I already have the regular one and the one specifically labelled 16-bit, but I want more, but I unfortunately didn't have $30 for both of them. I love collecting old consoles and I would have grabbed the PlayStation they had for $5 if the lid on it closed.

                            I also recently found a vintage My Little Pony for 50 cents, Sonic the Hedgehog (Genesis) still in the box, and Ninja Turtles Tournament Fighters (Genesis). Not vintage, but I found a pair of Hot Topic pleather pants there that actually fit my fat ass *joygasm*.

                            I would love to find some Turtles stuff, but I don't get to go to the thrift store too often. It sucks.

                                  Thrift stores are my second home... love 'em. Some cool things I've found [well, at least I thought they were cool]: Mario coin bank [it was a quarter.. I was gonna buy it buuut the foot was cracked and there was a hole in the bottom], a Nintendo controller [my cousin and I were hoping the rest of the Nintendo was there, but it wasn't], and the Oregon Trail computer game. No luck on finding a Pee-wee doll though. :(

                                    I found a Pee Wee Doll last year at a Peddler's Mall, but the string was broken. :(

                                    Oh and I recently found the original Punisher movie on VHS.

                                          Today I had to make a courier run, normally I'm just the dispatcher but today, they had an emergency call and there was no one else to do it so I took the run. I get to the destination and I call the contact who tells me that the order was taken care of last night. So after going my supervisor and taking care of everything I look over and see these two thrift stores in this little shopping center, I figured what the heck I'm already here and after reading the posts in this thread I noticed you can find some really cool stuff if you know where to look, I went in and I ended up getting:

                                          Catwoman #1
                                          Evil Dead: Hail to the King for PS1 for $1.99

                                          and then to top it off I found an Alvin glass from the Alvin & the Chipmunks collection I'm so happy to have found it and I can't wait to display it with some of my other treasures.
                                          Who knows what is really real? That is the true question isn't it?
