Found a perfectly working record play once with some random vinyls of artists I’ve never heard of before.

Re: Three Cheers for Bargains! It’s Thrift Shop Day!

I WIN.

Since visiting multiple thrift shops is an almost daily occurrence I should win this... random competition but seriously. I will never forget the value village employee carrying out a receiver from the back sorting room as I see MARANTZ I tell the guy I WILL TAKE IT. And he says there is a huge pile of these. My heart started to race, I literally had butterflys in my tummy. A pile (literally) of Carver, Rotel and Marantz used audio equipment new cost was around MSRP $30,000 paid $79.99 sold for ~$4,000 on craigslist/kijiji

Re: Three Cheers for Bargains! It’s Thrift Shop Day!

Mine great find was actually at a garage sale where i got 2 skycaddie good gps's with all the clips and holders for $5. I didn't need one of the mounts and was easily able to sell it for $10.

 

My daughter says i have to tell her story now lol. She is 8, just last week she got an Our Generation doll at the thrift store for $1. She was so happy with that deal

Never hoard tech, lol.  That's why these expensive units end up at the thrift store.  Your story is further reason why my story should win.  We should not just focus solely on the purchases, but also the generous donations of items we no longer want/need but would be fantastic find for others.  It is better to give them to receive.  For all these reasons, a giving story is a slam dunk.

Come to think of it, since these are supposed to be random winners, anyone could simply concoct a fake bargain story and win.  It could be the most boring deal or even a purchase of terrible value and still win, as long as it meets the contest entry requirement.
