I'm too poor for thrift stores. I'm the guy who takes stuff that people set out for the garbage man, or who is the recipient of everyone else's old or broken shit. I have a heap of about 7 computers sitting next to me and countless random cords, computer peripherals, and spare parts.

It's a genuine Star Trek tie of Captain Picard! It's a close up of his face and chest area with the Enterprise flying in front of him. Nothing much happens when you tie it because the only part that gets tied is filled with stars and various space things.

...Thats a shame Goaty, you'd think the designers would have worked it so that when you tie'd it picards face turned Vulcan or something, which reminds me I'd better go see E-Bay, I keep being out bid on a hello kitty startrek Borg badge pin....its so cool.

Yesterday I bought 6 NES games including CONTRA, Metroid and Double Dragon. Plus 2 NES controllers in perfect working condition. All for a buck each.

I didn't get this at a thrift store but I did get it for thriftstore prices! I bought a nice peavey bass for forty clams from a buddy.

That's much cheaper than thrift store prices. (at least the thrift stores around here)
