On Sunday at Chichester I got a wii with Mario Kart and Grand Slam Tennis for £10. Thomas & Friends Wii for a quid. Sold Tennis and Thomas & Friends for £14.00 on ebay so the wii was free. Sort of.

Also got a Dilbert book for 20p

Yes. It's a great bootsale. I only get to go occasionally when I visit my friend who lives there. I've had loads of bargains there in the past :)

That is all.

I just can't be arsed to get up at the times i used to, tbh. My missus won't go before 8am, so i'm not going to find much of interest going at that time. They're nearly finished by then, over this way... :lol:

If it's any consolation, I was at a huge car boot at the weekend, and without intending it, I was up and out the door just after 7am. I found absolutely sod all of interest apart from the usual collection of PS2 tat and NFL MD carts. Complete bobbins.
I did spot a couple of N-Gage games which I had not seen before, but frankly I couldn't be bothered with them as I don't have an N-Gage, they were footie games, and the guy wanted a fiver each.

Picked up a few bits today, the Booty was practically bulging with stuff, for a change.

That's an Acorn Electron with Plus one expansion and a few games including one ROM cart and a joystick. A pile of Amstrad games, some Speccy and C64 games, a Defender board game, and Scramble (working) All for about £20.
I also picked up a few PS2, 360 and PS3 titles, so in all all, quite a haul of gear today.
