Very Nice.   :)


RPG’s, D&D in particular has had a major influence in my life. It’s bonded me together with life long friends...it’s that bond in life not just as friends, but in our jokes, our mannerisms, and what we find funny. Invincible Overlord

Yup ... the items mentioned were just sitting on the shelf ... stuffed in there with lots of other items.  Just a matter of taking a couple of hours to carefully weed through the accumulated assortment of miscellaneous junque to find the gems ...

I think that one of the essential factors to finding a FLGS with cool old-school items crammed on the shelf might be.......

Finding a FLGS that is still open.  :x

Your story is similar to how I've found all my best stuff. I don't like to spend much, so when I do acquire a valuable collectible, it's because of the circumstances you described. Greatest find ever: RQ Balastor's Barracks in a pile of freebies being thrown out by an FLGS.

True ... several local game stores have come and gone over the past few years either due to various fluctuations in the economy, poor location or poor management.  At present, there are only two game stores that have been around 10 years or more and even then only time will tell how much longer they will survive.
