Well I struck gold pretty much

Picked up a brand new & sealed Sega Saturn Console MK2

While the box is a little dented on one side, all the innards are still wrapped and sealed in their bags; controller, cables, manuals all sealed etc... Even the demo disc that came with the Saturn is still shrink wrapped. Everything is pristine.

£10

Don't think I can top that really. Just looking on ebay , never seen a new/sealed Saturn before. Even noticed that 2nd hand Saturns are crossing the £100 mark. WTF?

Wow, this is amazing, well done! I'd love to know the background... how did this end up never being opened and in a charity shop!

i didnt, though it genuinely represents the sum total of the 7 charity shops loot in our local town. i suspect nearly everything goes in the front door and out the back door.

Nothing gaming related but picked up a tweed jacket that had a slight whiff of stale urine.It has lovely leather patches on the elbows.Upon taking it to the dry cleaner I found a blank postcard from Whitley bay in the pocket.Strange but true.

That Saturn was an amazing find. I have had almost no luck this year just the odd game or two. Most shops now just over charge for all there games, thats what you get when you use ebay to price stuff. A local shop to me has a "new" sale at this time of year, so all the "good" stuff they have been keeping. The issue evertying is priced more than retail for it
