What have you found at a thrift shop lately?

im bored and thought that this would be a good topic.
just post something "cool" that you found/bought in a thrift shop.

the best i can do is a Apple USB keyboard from an iMac, didnt have the money for it on me though.

I found an Apple SE for $20 once. But most recently I got this. I had been thinking about getting into mountain biking. Walked in Saturday morning and saw this for $60. Grabbed it!

I work at Value Village (Savers to those outside Canada and Australia) and i find awesome tech things all the time. Over the last year alone i've come across 3 iMac G3s, multiple Apple USB keyboards from over the years, iPod mini, multiple iPod nanos from different gens, iPod shuffles, some smashed iPod touch's. Multiple gaming systems from Xbox 360 and PS3 all the way back to Atari 2800 and Coleco Vision (still in box, in great shape). Even found an original white Macbook a few months ago, great condition, but the battery was dead, and no cables.

I could almost shed a tear when i see these things thrown in the garbage.
