Tama ID L at a garage sale.

Recommended Posts

Omg you guys... funny story.

 

So this family that lives down the street in the resident horder family.

 

When they have a garage sale you KNOW it's going to be good. This morning I bought a Tama ID L off amazon

, then I went to this garage sale. Well, the daughter, collects Tamas and they were selling 2

new Tamagotchi ID-Ls without her permission. Probably thought she was hording them. and wanted to help her

"clean out her stash" One was a blue, and the other a princess spacey.

 

They were selling them for $4 each I sneakily talked em down to $6 for both of them, saying how they were

in another language and the chances of someone buying them were slim. so I told them I would take

them of their hands since I can read japanese. And they would get some money for them. I even said

 

"c'mon, they're Tamagotchis, do people even play with these anymore? I just thought my 4 year old niece

would like em."

 

I know I know...if I was any kind of a decent person, I would have told them how much they were worth...but I

couldn't resist being evil for 2 ID Ls for $6...

 

BEST DAY EVER~!!!! :D

Holy crap thats amazing! What a great find! I'm so jealous, haha! xD

 

What'd really be funny if the girl was a Tamatalker, and it ended up being her Tamagotchis xD Slim chance, but I dont really imagine many people knowing about Japanese Tamas in the US that arent part of some forum or community xD

 

Have you had an iD L before? They're great, you're so lucky you got it for soooooo cheap instead of like $70. xP

That is so awesome. I just ordered my iD L, and with the faster shipping option, it came to about $70 Canadian. It would be great if they were only $3 a pop. I think I would have one in every colour, and one in every version. Congrats on your great find, and sneaky negotiation skills. ;)

Cool, you are the luckiest person in the world! And don't worry about not being a "decent" person. I once **cannot say because of TT rules about posting any illegal activity you might be involved in** a Version 3. :P

That's why I always get into major arguments with my parents over my Tama collection - I certainly don't want MY Tamas sold without my permission! But good buy anyway!

Don't feel bad about talking them down! That's what garage sales are all about. I mean, if we all felt guilty for haggling... Haha. Great deal! I'm super jealous, but awesome for you! I need to start hitting more garage sales.

I found a four leaf clover once but you're WAY luckier than me, you got 2 iDLs cheap.

 

P.S. I admire your negotiating skills. Will you give classes?
