I went to the thrift store today, wasnt expecting to see anything interesting; just christian records and tapes and cds as always (they're way too many of them x-x)
but i came home with some cool stuff! ill attach the pictures later
the first thing i found were some DVD-RW discs, and surprisingly, a DVD-RAM disc, which isn't that common!
the 2nd thing i got was a 8-Track to cassette adapter, called a Sparkomatic Stereo Cassette Adapter SCA10, which will be super handy cuz not only can i use it to record tape 2 tape, but i can use it to record CD 2 tape with another adapter I have! it'll be super cool for making my own mixtapes!
Some stuff i saw but didnt get included:
a 90s dance music album called "Tourism"
Cliff SAT I studyware for Windows 3.0 and IBM
3 different Magnavox stereo consoles from the 60s-70s as well as a somewhat newer cheap stereo+cd+tape+radio player
A combined tripod+easel
And some weird blank CD in hebrew called "GPT" (ntbc w/ ChatGPT) that had Kenny Loggins written on it.
So yeah, cool stuff for sure! I enjoy going to my thrift store because for how local it is, i've found crazy things from it, like a Touhou CD, an autographed record, and some other neat stuff like "Hot Butter - Popcorn" of ROBLOX fame.

Finding cool things is always a hunt at secondhand stores. You've found some cool stuff!

Sounds like a good thrift day to me! My wife and I's whole house and wardrobe are almost completely harvested from the thrift or flea markets around us. It's a way more affordable way to live and also our house is cooler than everyone else's in town  :tongue:  :eyes:

Some days I don't get anything good from my local Goodwill, but in all my time going to it I've gotten tons of movies from my early childhood I still enjoy, a Sony Dream Machine CD player, an Acer moniter I like, a decent projector, a blu-ray player, and oddly a bunch of blank sealed optical media and cases. I also got a sealed minorly crushed blank VHS tape, but I can't use that because I have a DVD VHS combo player that doesn't record.

All in all, going to thrift stores has been a good investment I'd say, as I used the projector to present my project at school and I plan on doing it again. I also use the monitor to make my netbook more functional as a desktop, as that's the only old machine I have besides my modern laptop which has a perfectly good monitor, but I don't like it because ew high DPI.
