Well guys I am hitting up my Flea Market for Dreamcast Stuff this weekend.

I been convinced that ebay seller are just taking advantage of
people who are too lazy to leave their house or don't have a flea market place.

This place does an awesome thing of 2 for 1 and that can be anything game related.

So yeah my picks could be VMU , GAME , AND Controller. One of those's being free :mrgreen:

Nice! I love flea market stories. I grew up in the Dallas area in the states and Flea markets were always quite meh for gaming. I didn't start going to them until the mid 2000s and by then people had already started ebay pricing. Although garage sales were worked out quite well for me back then. I remember when my neighbor had a garage sale when their kids went off to colleg. Elementary school me got a box of Genesis games for $15 cause the parents didn't know anything about games, and this was when the genesis was still kinda relevant.

I have never seen Dreamcast stuff anywhere other than a retro shop.. conventions or online..

Hopefully your flea markets are better than the ones around here

the closest flea market to me is an hour away so yea i dont go...but i do hit up the 3 local pawn shops in my town frequently...unfortunately very rarely see any DC stuff....picked up quite a few ps2, xbox, and gamecube among others...even some gamegear stuff...maybe a total of 15 or so snes and genesis carts...nothing to get too excited over.....

back about 10 years ago i was able to get a complete Snatcher for Sega CD for $5 at the pawn shop but i sold it way back for real cheap...regret it
