Not a find, but a deal. Went to gamestop and traded in the GBA games that haven't been moving from my B/S/T thread and they offered me $26.60 for the lot, so I picked up a WaveBird controller, Animal Crossing, and Super Smash Bros Melee and paid $8 and some odd change.

All this for the GameCube that I got in a trade for 2 3DO games which I paid $3 each for. Thus, I managed a complete GameCube, 3 games, a 3rd party controller, a WaveBird, and all the cables for about $15. That's quite a deal in my opinion.

Just picked up a pretty good deal today. Breath of Fire CIB, Breath of Fire 2 CO and Yoashi's Island CIB...all three for $60 together. Not something I can make a bunch of money on, but nice for my collection.

Went to the flea market today and picked up Contra 3, Magic Sword and FIFA International Soccer for the snes for $13 including the dollar I was charged for parking. Unfortunately I seemed to have picked up a free sunburn to go with them.
