Massive retro collection for sale

Post by preownedgames.co.uk » Mon Oct 16, 2006 4:36 pm

And it's mine!

As my name suggests, I run a site called preownedgames.co.uk . Unfortunately I don't have time to run it any more so I've put the whole business up for sale on Ebay :)

Have no idea how much it will go for but it should be an interesting auction.

So how much do you think that stock, site and name is worth?

Just as a general enquiry: are you happy for potential buyers to let an account look at sales figures etc.

I'm not saying that it isn't a god buy, but with any business you need to make sure it is actually doing business and has has a good (ish) customer base!

I would keep most of the games, and sell off the domain name and doubled stock

Mayment ? I'd never accept three magic beans as mayment. It's an insult to the world of 'Mame'.

You sir, are a fool. The mayment in question here is for 3 magic beans that guarantee riches, fame and attractiveness to the opposite sex!
