Not a great deal today

Couple of Lego games for the 360 + PS3 plus a fat PS2 without any cables and a few games.

Did have the unique experience of getting to the car boots when it was still pitch black and to my surprise finding that there loads of stalls already set up. had to leg it back to the car to get a torch :D

Last one i did a couple of weeks ago we got there to sell at 5.00 - pitch black and no torch. luckily close enough to a trader with lights! Seem to do quite well when we sell and usually manage to get a few bargains myself. Would like to get to one last one before seasons end though.

TBH if the weather stays like it is I can see them going to the back of October no problem maybe longer if its warm and dry
