  • [electrical buzzing]

  • [keyboard keys clacking]

  • - [Robotic Voice] Let's go thrifting!

  • [SID chip Thrifting music]

  • - [Clint] Shout out to Paul of Hokuto Force

  • for that C64 intro, by the way,

  • but yeah, just looking at a parking lot here

  • because it's freshly paved and that pleases me.

  • Nice day for a Goodwill run.

  • I got the lucky rock over there looking lucky as always,

  • and I'll leave it be this time.

  • And immediately inside in the media section

  • there are a small handful of games here for various systems.

  • Got a couple of original XBOX games.

  • Nothing I need, but you know, there it is.

  • Same goes for Fable: The Lost Chapters, here,

  • I already have it, don't need it, but you know,

  • I'm seeing these kinds of things in Goodwills

  • less and less these days.

  • Same goes for this, just DOS and Windows 3 applications

  • like Print Shop Deluxe Ensemble, here, or the CD Ensemble.

  • Again, already own it,

  • but it's nice to see the ensemble [chuckles].

  • Yeah.

  • Over in the glass case there's a Framemeister,

  • uh, Framemaster, uh yeah, it's one of these things.

  • I used to use these while making custom picture frames.

  • It's a point driver,

  • you can stick it in the back and mount things,

  • and yeah, anyway.

  • More console games and some handheld stuff

  • as usual down below, nothing standing out, to me anyway.

  • This right here stood out though.

  • We got an Edison phonograph cylinder record.

  • 25 bucks is a bit much.

  • I got a couple of these that are older even,

  • for like five bucks.

  • Ooh and it's one of these little guys!

  • One of those mini tape recorders by Norelco.

  • Think I've actually picked up one of these

  • in a previous thrift, I just like the design of these

  • little 60's tape recorders.

  • Ooh, now this is more like it!

  • Up above here on top of the case

  • we've got a Atari 2600 Light Sixer.

  • The VCS itself, a Tele-Games center, just a plastic base,

  • but you know, manuals and games and controllers.

  • And I mean, you know, not a bad little set.

  • Again, nothing I don't have, and they were charging $150.

  • After they cut that price in half

  • I think it sold like a week later.

  • This was kind of neat.

  • I saw stacks and stacks of these magazine ads

  • from the 1920's and 30's.

  • All in protective plastic with cardboard backing, and yeah,

  • it's mostly from the Ladies' Home Journal,

  • a lot of it actually being ads for soap, cleaning products.

  • An amusing collection.

  • This kind of thing always catches my eye,

  • we have a traffic signal, here.

  • Mostly a hard plastic construction, but yeah,

  • I'd love to grab one of these sometime and convert it to a

  • thing [chuckles].

  • And then look at this thing, oh man,

  • it's a big ol' skin, here, just yeah, I mean,

  • somebody just dropped off a skin, how very John Marston.

  • Ah, now here we go,

  • I've always liked the look of these things.

  • This is a Yamaha Clavinova, this is a CLP-250.

  • I've just always admired the clean lines and

  • clean sound, really, of these,

  • and I remember seeing them in the late 80's,

  • well really, early 90's in music stores.

  • Just a digital piano, but it's kind of cool.

  • And then around the corner, look at this,

  • they have like an entire dedicated wood section.

  • I guess they didn't know where else to put this,

  • so it's all just like wood things.

  • Feels like it was specifically made for me, somehow.

  • I mean, you know, it's not, but I appreciate the effort.

  • Ah man, check out this load of rubber stamps.

  • It's a rather random assortment, it seems,

  • just stuck together in little bags, $20 each,

  • which considering the price

  • that some of these can actually be normally,

  • that's not the worst deal for some of these,

  • if you want these designs, anyway.

  • All right, getting over to the electronics wall,

  • and over here this caught my eye, because of course it does.

  • It is an IBM Wheelwriter.

  • This is a much later one than I normally see,

  • this is a five.

  • I most often see like the twos and threes.

  • And it looks like we got some

  • darkroom-related equipment, here.

  • This is a Compensating Enlarging Timer.

  • All sorts of useful-looking settings

  • for developing film photographs and all that.

  • Don't know if it actually has all it needs with it,

  • but yeah, it's a thing.

  • Down below there was an intriguing stack of A/V stuff,

  • like the Kmart stereo 8-track player right there,

  • but I was mostly attracted to this

  • Data Dynamics Pulse Generator, 5113 is the model,

  • and just look at this thing,

  • you don't normally see this type of equipment.

  • I mean I've seen some neat things,

  • but not one quite like this before, and uh, I like it.

  • Ah man, look at this little tiny mouse, it's so small.

  • Almost to the point of it being useless.

  • Man, I used to see these like bundled all the time with

  • laptop carrying cases and such.

  • Oh hey, now what is this?

  • Ah, just a little portable radio, here, from Sony,

  • but dang it, I love this design.

  • Look at this, it almost has a Dieter Ramsesque Braun design,

  • I don't know, it's just a clean look.

  • And whoa, okay this is an increasingly rare site

  • at Goodwills these days, we got an NES over here.

  • Just the main unit itself, but you know,

  • it's got the cables and two controllers, 15 bucks.

  • It's yellowed, but so it goes.

  • 15 is not bad, all things considered, if it's functional,

  • but who knows.

  • I'm sure somebody will buy this really quickly.

  • As for me though, I'm not gonna buy that,

  • but I'm going to buy this really quickly.

  • Check this out!

  • We've got a VIC-1525 Graphic Printer, here, by Commodore.

  • The box is a little nasty in parts, but $20,

  • and it is brand new old stock inside there.

  • I mean, everything is still taped up, sealed and everything.

  • The manual, the cables, the printer itself,

  • I mean, it's all there, yeah I'm totally grabbing this.

  • Ah man, it's such a nice day out at this point,

  • so let's keep on going.

  • We've got another Goodwill here, and this is the one

  • that remodeled recently-ish, with the wood laminate flooring

  • and the brown and black shelves, and yeah, it's just a

  • classy look here now.

  • Anyway, checking out the back wall of goodies over here,

  • and there wasn't much last time I visited, but this time

  • I saw this Zenith tube radio.

  • It's a Bakelite kind of maroon-colored thing, for $5.

  • Haven't yet dove into mid-century radio collecting, but

  • I don't know man, they're cool, as opposed to these,

  • which I'm sorry to say will never be cool.

  • [giggles] These terrible VR viewers.

  • It's just one of those glorified Google Cardboard things

  • that you find at like

  • dag-gone gas station sell these now,

  • everywhere, they're littering Goodwills.

  • And below that though, this caught my eye, because you know,

  • keyboard, and it's by Key Tronic,

  • and they have some pretty awesome stuff at times.

  • This one on the other hand was a later,

  • much crappier, plastic-y model.

  • I liked the black on black and everything,

  • but yeah, it's later, it's got the Windows keys and all that

  • kind of stuff, and it's not mechanical, so nobody cares.

  • You know here's something that always gets my attention

  • at thrift stores, white boards and things like that,

  • that still have somebody's notation on there.

  • This one in particular having writing that's almost

  • three years old at this point.

  • I don't know, it just amuses me that someone just decided

  • to give this to Goodwill and not erase it.

  • Like here, look at this chalkboard.

  • Like you know what, it's just time to get rid of this thing.

  • It may have something written on there, but we're just

  • gonna give it to Goodwill, and then Goodwill's not gonna

  • erase it either [laughing].

  • Ah, Shake Weight!

  • On the topic of Goodwill and things that occur, this is
