I put an ad on Craigslist to buy Nintendos, working or not. I got two calls. First girl sold me 2 consoles, two controllers and 8 games for $60, then another guy sold me four consoles and a satellite receiver for $60. Bonus: the 2nd guy also pulls out a top loader from his trunk and says he knows nothing about it and that I can have it if I want it. I told him I would research it and fix it up. So in total, I got 6 front loaders, 1 top loader, 2 controllers and 8 games for $120.

Congrats on the finds, I love hearing that people can still have good finds in the wild. It must be a much different landscape in your area than in mine because it is brutal in SE Michigan

I put up a similar ad and got a bunch of hate email from local sellers claiming I was encroaching on their territory. :S

"And stay out!"

It's pretty brutal here, too. Anytime I make a call, even if the ad is minutes old, "Sorry, sold it already."

Just a few months ago, I've not been actively collecting for very long compared to most around here!

Yeah it's crazy. Even the homeless here are incredibly territorial, for people who own no land. They yell and scream at each other over spots outside Tim Horton's like they own the place. Literally like "you piece out shit you think you can just come sit here, in MY SPOT!?". Like, bro, you're homeless, you own no spot.

Dang! Only a few months ago... harsh. Whelp... when the bubble bursts, maybe those people will chill out.
