Hola!

Just got back from the morning boot sales. Neither were very big, thanks to this disappointing 'summer' weather I think. Picked up a few bits and pieces but not a great deal...

Probotector (MD) - £2

Mario Allstars (SNES) - £1

Medievil 2 (PS) - £2

And Narc on DVD for £3.

Hoping the rain won't come before the afternoon sale :(

EDIT: This thread should have been started by Benito but didn't realise my Big Borther loving girlfriend was still logged in!

Can anyone recommend any good car boot sales in South West London and/or Surrey? Or point me in the right direction in finding out when and where they occur?

I've only ever been to one car boot sale on the hunt for vintage videogame stuff, and all I could find was an overpriced GameGear and a broken Amiga 500.

You know what - our pikey friend was moaning about impatient people and those that dive in the back of cars to get at the stuff...

Particuarly ironic as His missus was having their kids run to grab something and hold onto it out the back of a motor at the time he was imparting these words of wisdom....

He had a good couple of snes's today but he was right fed up later on..

I can't believe he had the nerve to moan about other people - its utter madness :P

I hope you weren't talking to those pikeys <_< It must have been quite an unpleasant experience, which I try to avoid.

Maybe he is turning over a new leaf - I will believe it when I see it...

That's a nice find!

Umm... How did you work that one out? :P

Oops, In my car boot excitement I ment to say i got Terminator on the Megadrive and Rainbow Islands on the Amiga. <_<

Now if i had found Rainbow Islands on the MD for 50p that would be something to post about.

Nah, I overheard him being quite flirty with a booter... I think His missus does the real work there actually..

I popped by my local boot fair again this week - last week was ok but this week was terrible - I think the gloomy weather (which did turn to rain quite quickly) put most people off.

Passed on a stall with a boxed DC and 20 games going for £80. One of them was Skies of Arcadia, but meh...

There's a guy who regularly trades there selling masses of videos, DVDs and console games, both new and retro. Most staggeringly he has 200+ PS1 games and NOT ONE of them is actually any good. I flick thru occasionally to see if he's picked up anything like Vandal Hearts or Suikoden, which would actually be worth the £7-£8 he charges per game :-)

And the last insult to the morning - a guy had a lone copy of Sparkster (boxed, no instructions) on his stall. Wanted £5 for it. Feh.. Think I'll wait for eBay instead.

PSOne + one pad and one game: £20 :):o

One manky Megadrive with about 8 common and shite games in bad condition £15 no offers...

Went to the local HMV instead and bought the 30th anniversary bruce lee boxest for 1/2 price, along with the donnas latest album and a bill hicks biography...

Bloody big local one is just overun with minibuses full of various Eastern European nationalities......seems there's a big blag market in gaming... :twisted:

Yeah these boys heard RichM was having a bad week :D:D:D

:D:unsure:

Every week the findings at my nearest reasonable sized jobbie get worse and worse.....think I;m going to have to start randomly driving through villages in the hope one might have a car boot sale...

All I want is the chance to buy something other than a Megadrive or Playstation 1..
