There are 4 boot sales within 15 miles of me, so I have lots of choice. They have been really good this year.

Popped down to the local car boot sale on Sunday.
Its the first time in over a year I have found anything of interest.

Went home with Atelier Iris 2 and Rogue Galaxy, both complete and in great condition.

Picked up a nice Steepletone Airband/shortwave radio for £5.
Lovely big chunk of nostalgia and in good working order, also it will get used as I live near a local airport.
