There's plenty of posts on most insane ebay items, etc... but what are some of the best bargains some of you have got?

My best is probably walking into a record store in Melbourne and picking up the Heathen's Rage 12" and Satan's Host red vinyl. Both in near mint condition for $30 AU each.

Although I was just beaten to the Par press of Sirens for $15 AU.

Mostly not so rare albums from 2hand store for few euros or as in past for 5-10 finnish marks. Sepultura, Cirith Ungol, Obituary etc. Nothing too special. Maybe H-Bomb's Coup De Metal for 3 euros. Mint copy of Moottorilinnut was 20 euros with postage.

Reminds me that I need to do flea markets more often.

Well, compared to the prices going around these days, almost everything I've bought from 1988 to 2003 can be considered bargain ^^

But one trade I surely remember as the best ... got Heretic "Breaking Point" for 3900 lire (~2 euro) and some years later I traded it for Apocrypha debut with OBI ^^

>> -Warn the children -free
10 copies of Mysstress (OR) for $25 each

these are off the top of my head and these are things i paid for,almost everything i have comes from trades that cost me anything between nothing and 1/5-1/3 of the list prices
and THIS has been the way to collect for me.
BUT nothing would make me happier than being John Haupt finding endless rarities for nothing in the 90s,or Andi Preisig flying to the US for free also in the 90s,and picking everything up for free.huge sigh.
I am so true my mp3 player's screen has slight ringwear
