You guys, the Mavica camera is AWESOME!  It stores the images on floppy much faster than I would have expected.  Quality is pretty good.  I had to clean the floppy drive up before it would work, but now it's fine.

 

I love those cameras! =D

So i recently got a new job. I deliver car parts to mechanic shops for pep boys. Anyway yeaterday i finished up my rout with time to spare and there was a goodwill that i have never been to before (about an hour away from my house) here is what i found

I was so happy to see animal crossing! I remember seeing the mario btos movie when it came out, but i dont remember a thing about it. So i cant wait to see it

 

Nice pickups on the two VHS tapes and both video game related! I would watch Mortal Kombat a million times before I think I could sit through Mario Bros again lol maybe it's not that bad but I remember it being kind of bad haha... you'll have to let us know how the refresh is and if you make it through the entire thing lol

Some interesting junk for me:

  • A Tron Hot-Wheel style holder.  I came with one lightcycle. 
  • Sega Genesis portable -- not sure that it works yet.

Some of my recent thrift finds:

Always good to find some sealed 5-1/4 floppies. That's a Fred Meyer sticker on the right one.

Found this Power PC (Performa 6320CD) at Goodwill Outlet. It would have been $19 due to the weight, but they gave me a discount ($6 instead). It turns on and produces sound, but that's all I know so far, having no monitor (or VGA adapter), keyboard, or mouse that work with it. I must admit, I don't know that much about pre-OS X Macs.

And now for something completely different! I found these at a little thrift store in Kennewick that I usually only visit every few months. Paid off this time!
