The snes, official psu, spare 3rd party psu, 2 controllers (no av lead, but not needed anyway), the 3 carts, the 6 gameboy games (pacman is a bootleg) and the PS1 games all came from the same seller. £20 all in. Shadow of Memories was £1 and Wrestlemania was 50p.

I also bought a brand new set of Wera Hex keys for a fiver, which i was well chuffed with (check the price of those puppies on ebay!)

luck of the draw mate. I've not seen any SNES stuff at all this year until today. There was a lot of retro about today, but most of it was quite expensive. £15 for a GBA, £10 for an SP, £15 for a 'cube, £45 for a psone with official screen. £25 for an Atari 2600, £35 for a PSP. None of it was boxed. It seems most sellers are using ebay as a price guide. Pity it doesn't work quite like that :|

I don't bother with the arguments. I just chuckle at outrageous prices and walk away. They might get the message when they have to pack everything back up and take it home with them. Who knows? I saw one guy with an N64 up for £70 (to be fair there was some reasonable boxed stuff in his lot) for 3 weeks straight. He wasn't there on the fourth. Mebbe he finally put it on ebay.

There was a guy today who bought some stuff off of me. I asked him he had picked any other stuff up and he showed me he'd got a copy of Skies Of Arcadia on the Gamecube. He paid £45 for it. Turns out there was a dealer selling retro stuff for max ebay prices. Spoke to a couple of other people who said his prices were beyond a joke. Res Evil on the GC - £25, Silent Hill 2 PS2 - £15. Funny thing was I got told he was shifting a lot of stuff so makes you think people will pay those prices.
