Second hand finds (good and bad)
What good or bad deals have you found at garage/yard sales, flea markets, thrift stores like Goodwill, etc.?
Last weekend I got Duplo set 2317 for my kids for $.50 at a garage sale. The box also contained some old Lego 2x4 bricks (old style with thicker font on the studs) and a 10x20 brickplate.
Yesterday I stopped in Goodwill and found a Duplo table with baseplate for $6.00, and set 4100 for $3.00 (open box but complete with unopened bags). Also bought a Duplo bucket for $3.00, but when I opened it at home I found it only had one Duplo 2x2 and 2 Lego plates. It was mostly filled with 2 different sizes of MegaBloks (neither is Duplo scale) and also had random items including a doll shoe, My Little Pony shoe, ring with skull & crossbones, tape measure, heart eraser, and two small balls.
