It's back and bigger than ever! The Video Game Market - the UK's largest gaming sales fair - is just weeks away. Taking place at Leeds Town Hall on Saturday 7th February with over 100 stalls packed to the brim with gaming goodies, you'd be mad to miss out on the bargains to be had.

As we count down the days till the big event, be sure to check out the many sellers heading to the Video Game Market next month. From traders such as Console Passion, Retro Towers, Warp Zone, and countless other big names, you'll be well catered for in the event's main hall. Elsewhere in the venue you'll see a variety of eBay sellers and collectors, all with plenty of classics at cheap prices.

Expect to see countless retro & modern games, rare titles, Japanese & US import releases, Everdrive cartridges, video game merchandise, RGB cables, box protectors, toys, comics & books, gaming artwork, strategy guides, modified consoles and much much more.

Hey. Nice to see this come 'round again, I went to the last one in March. It felt like a victim of its own success as it was pretty crowded last time - so its great to see a bigger venue!
Thanks, and good luck with the event and to all that attend. :)

I couldn't make the last one, so I really fancy this! I'm also interested in selling some pixel bead artwork there, so will drop them an email about that :)

There was a stall in the first show selling bead art key rings. I bought some PACMAN ones for presents. Good luck with your stand.

Thanks, I've secured a stall in the "Bargain Basement" :D

I can't wait to go, maybe if I make some money I'll be able to come home with one of those sweet bartop arcade cabs!

It was chaos, but good chaos, was far busier than any of us expected hence this time we are having a much bigger space over two floors. Currently we have 40 different sellers of retro gaming goodness so there should be plenty for everyone :D


@flying_delorean81 really pleased to have you on board, may be worth you dropping Paul a message through his facebook (or if you want i can give you his email) he may even be able to get you a bartop ready for on the day to pick up :-) (even to the design of your choice) they are lovely

Thanks for the offer, but I'll have to see how things go after Christmas, money-wise! You're right though, they are lovely :D

Just persuaded the Mrs to come to this, she wants to look around for ideas for knitting projects & it's a few days before my birthday so I may get to spend a little birthday money. JOY! :D
