Tales from The Flea Market

by Snatch1414 Thu Apr 17, 2014 4:33 pm

(if there is another thread like this that I missed please let me know!)

Hey everyone, just figured it'd be fun to recant the experiences we all have at flea markets or yard sales. Can be game-related or not. I don't know about everyone else but I definitely meet interesting characters and sometimes have some strange encounters..........or we can just laugh/bitch about people overpricing their games.

Had a guy at the flea market this past Saturday who had a bunch of random stuff and one lone NES cart: Donkey Kong Classics. I already had it but my friend didn't so figured I might pick it up for him.

I asked the guy how much and he said $20. I just said something like 'Wow' and he replied "it's old." I just said, "it ain't THAT old." Then he claimed it goes for $40 online. At this point I had already engaged him more than I usually do with people like this, so I just walked away without responding. I wasn't mad, he can charge whatever he wants, I just don't get the balls people have when they don't even realize what they're saying is incorrect.

"yeah, well, I'm old too, and I'm cheaper than that."

Usually this stuff just gets bounced around the Look What I Found and What Made You Smile/Ticked You off thread. I'm sure now that we are approaching summer there will be plenty going on to keep a thread like this filled though.
