36641RE: [midatlanticretro] Estate Sale Loot!
- Jun 21, 2014That is awesome...I've never lucked into such a sale like that! Of course I'm in a much more rural area, so no great surprise there. Wish I was closer, I would drop by and check it all out. The Bernoilli box and such sounds interesting...always fun to dig through all the random bits and pieces at such a sale as well.I was at a local auction house yesterday...they had a Mac Classic complete with a big carrying case for it. Thought I had lucked out when the bid got down to and I started it at $1...paused a minute, then someone else jumped in...he got it for $35 after I gave up... Oh well...didn't really need it anyway. :-)Wesley

However, this estate sale also had a few other pieces of gear of interest including:
-Macintosh II with an aftermarket monitor, keyboard, and something else attached for like $40 bucks
-What might have been a Bernoulli Box drive or a variation thereof which I'm not sure if it
-Macintosh Classic with a few extra things hooked up to it for like $20 or $30
-Some early Epson dot matrix printer for like 10 bucks or less
I seem to also remember spotting a Jaz drive I think, and a few other random pieces of gear that went with the Macintosh's. There was also an early to mid 90's Mac laptop nestled inside of a docking station like I had never seen before... but that qualifies as off topic. Anyway, if anyone is actually interested in the other things I spotted, they are welcome to send me a private email so I can give them the precise address of the estate sale in the Tysons/Fairfax area of Northern Virginia. If you seriously desire one of these items, I may be willing to go see if it's there in the morning and proxy purchasing it for you until you can pick it up. The sale lasts until Sunday, but I wouldn't be surprised if stuff disappears before then.
