Nothing. As tempting as a scabby DS lite with a broken hinge for a mere £20.00 :shock: was, I left empty handed again.

Halo, Halo 2 and LOTR for original xbox. £2 the lot.

Now I need to find a working machine.

Also took rubbish bags to local tip and came back with a fully working, great nick HP G56 laptop. It just needed ram and a hard disk, which I had in a drawer.

Has to be the worse season ever for me this year.
Everything is worth a fortune according to the sellers and there is little or no retro goodies left in the wild now.
Have the good times gone?

I never find anything anymore - its all ridiculous stuff at horrendous prices. And thats just my own stall. My prices at a boot sale tend to be based on less than completed listings but not so much that I cant get something back.

I also never use the 'i can get xxx on ebay' , i usually say 'ive got it on ebay for xxx , but you can have it for yyy' and it works most of the time. I also tend to ignore the traders when i set up and tell them i dont have games. i put out my other stuff first. Most traders will hassle for games but rarely buy at your prices - almost regardless of how much you ask.
I usually add traders discount onto my price and see where it takes me - if im making profit , i dont mind if its not millions!

First one I've attended this year. Picked up a DS Lite with Lego Pirates Of The Carrabian. £10.00 Nice condition too. I can now play GBA games without my GBA SP's washed out colours. Will sell the game for 3.00 so in the end it will have only cost me 7.00

It's Cart only. No box or instructions. If you're that interested I would just send it to you free.

Sensible soccer for the mega cd. Nice find.

Hope the Pacman board game is sealed. Other wise it's not as good as new :lol:
