    I'm thinking of browsing some of the local ones to see what they have.
    A few years ago a friend of mine found a low end pioneer player and 5 discs (including Olivia in Concert) for something like $100. The player still works great today.

    I've bought Laserdiscs at used record stores years ago and I haven't had any problems with them yet. Just watch out for deep scratches and laser rot.

    I've bought a few from pawn shops. They are far and few between and be prepared to get a lot of blank stares when you mention laserdisc. Also when you're in a store, check out the LP's as well, sometimes they get thrown in with them.

    Check the thrift stores too (like Goodwill and Salvation Army)- I've found the occasional LD thrown in with the LPs, and gotten them for the same price as LPs too! (40 cents for Charlotte's Web, $1 for a sealed Magnetic Video edition of Black Stallion to name a couple)
