However since moving to Alberta I've discovered the wonders of Town Wide Garage Sales. These allow me to spend a day out with my wife while she haggles over crock pots & old antiques. They also give me a chance to snag some goodies for gaming.
Where I live there are 4 Town Wide Garage sales I attend (one of which is our own town's), Gibbons being the last of the year.
So here is what I managed to find while out yesterday...
First up were two more of the old McDonald's Flintstone houses. I use these for Barbarian/Goblin/Orc huts. At 50 cents each, I was content, as I've been searching for these for some time.
Below are another pair I got quite a few years ago & you can see how well they paint up.
Another item I've been keeping my eyes open for is 1:43 scale cars for my Zombicide type games. I managed to get 3 this year (none over a $1.00). There were many more but people were asking outrageous amounts for what I intended them for.
I often poke my head into the various toy boxes people tend to have. I found this cart, which the lady said I could have for free. Can't beat that price.
Another fellow had some gaming stuff (Star Wars Miniatures, & the Wizkids Hobbit clix figures). Prices of course were somewhat based on rarity...something I find lame when all I want them for is gaming, however he had a box with these 3 terrain making bags. $5 for the 3 items seen.
And now the find of the day. One fella had some Toy Soldier Magazines on his table. As I started looking through them, he said he had some other Miniature type stuff in his van.
So I bought the 2 boxes of these bulletins from The British Model Soldier Society. They are not fancy by any means, but I always like finding old things like this to read through.
I realized after the fact that I should have gotten the Toy Soldier magazines while I was at it, but it totally slipped my mind.
Other items such as Books, DVD's etc I also picked up. The last purchase of the day as we were heading home was a copy of Axis & Allies which the person claimed was complete, so I will need to confirm that.
Up next are 3 more Descent figures that I've just dipped today, so will likely have those to post tomorrow eve.
Thanks for reading.
