Arcade auction in San Marcos, TX
« on: September 12, 2019, 11:28:24 am »
Some crazy deals in here... who knows if snipers will come in and kill them all in 3 hours... but if you're in the area, worth a look.  Ends this afternoon.

Yeah, 2 DDR pads I didn't want or need, but they went so cheap I bought them for the grab bars.  Some of the prices were insanely cheap.  Several working arcade games less than $100.

Ha, I saw the pads had gone for around $20 and wondered if you had grabbed some for spares  :applaud: :applaud:

Is that a table saw behind the driver?

Looks like it.   :dunno

This auction was nuts to me as a former food service worker.  A working pizza prep station for $46?  Those things are like three grand.  Brutal.

Well apparently every store in the US is going out of business so after the great fast food wars we will have three choices:

1.  Buy food via amazon and have it delivered via drone.
2.  Buy someone's left-overs from eBay... it will come from China and take three months to arrive.
3.  Go to Taco Bell (all restaurants will be Taco Bell)

More and more as the years pass, Demolition Man is becoming reality. Time to start training on the 3 Shells system.

Wow. Big machines going for less than a hundred dollars. I'm surprised someone didn't show up with a semi-trailer....or maybe they did and had no competition...


@Howard: most of us buy some sort of food online. Why not everything? Although some of that food will secretly be left-overs from China......

Taco Bell has taken over the South, eh? There seems to have been a consolidation in the last twenty years, focusing on strong locations.
