Any stuff placed on Craigslist is almost always listed at insane prices (might as well go to the store any buy new) and in the past 10 years I have seen absolutely 0 pieces of older stuff.
The last recycling center anywhere near here shut down around 3 years ago. Glad I cleaned them almost completely out of their old hardware before then. They only had a few sound and video cards.
I did find a place that sells old hardware in a different state and have since bought ALL of the ISA sound cards and all ISA and VLB video cards that they had.
Did it ever occur to you that you might the be the source of the problem? sounds like you bought every vintage piece of gear in 100 mile radius 😀 I can just imagine you sitting on a pile if VLB cards like Smaug on his gold hoard.
$free-20 'take this old gray box off my hands' deals are still the norm in my part of EU woods.

Haha. I do need to get rid of a lot of stuff. Most of the stuff I need to get rid of is lower end stuff though. I do have some nicer stuff I will probably get rid of that came from random lots of stuff off of eBay.
I think the main reason that there is no vintage gear around where I am is because I live in what they call "Tornado Alley" and also because this is a very high-end tech town. People just tend to trash stuff that they don't want anymore.
Last good thing I got from around here was a 20" CRT monitor that somebody set out to the curb. That was a couple years ago now.
Before that was around 10 years ago when somebody set out a few Slot-A systems to the curb.
I have found a few old games at the thrift store as well as a Sound Blaster 2.0 box with software and manuals about a year ago.
The vintage stuff is just not around here and really never has been as long as I have lived here.
