Lots of Used Stuff . . .and a couple new things.

I stopped at a used-bookstore on my way to dinner the other night and got Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey. A few days later I got a pre-owned copy of Dragonquest IX which I thought was odd since it had only come out a few days earlier, so why would there be a used one already? But whatever, it saved me $5.  Later I bought a new Mr. Coffee coffee pot for my apartment (sale: $45), the Arcade Fire album (sale: $7), Battlestar Galactica Season 2.5 (sale: $20), and Xenosaga Episode One (used: $6).

Sunday was flea market day, and all season long I have been looking to re-buy my Disney VHS collection on a more modern medium, but because of the capitalist geniuses at Disney and their Vault it is really hard to find cheap Disney DVDs.  So guess my surprise when I found The lion King and Lilo & Stitch for 2 and 4 dollars each!  I found Weezer's first album for $3, The Man with the Golden Gun for $3, and a whole mess of used books including all three volumes of a sci-fi trilogy by C.S. Lewis and Shakespeare's Henry V, Macbeth, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Twelfth Night, Richard II, and Julius Caesar.
