Title: I'm downsizing

The time has come for me to pass alot of my collection on, finances are getting tighter and space for collecting is getting less. Last time I let go of a collection I bought a flat. This time we want to knock our house down  ;:)

Last week I was talking to someone at work and we were discussing ebay special weekends, then on Friday I had an email that this was going to be one, a long holiday weekend in the UK, so the stars were aligned and a search of all the corners of the house began.

I've still run out of time, the offer ended at midnight and I was listing right to the end. There is more, but it will be for another day...  ;)

Lots of proto stuff listed, Radiola, Siera, Jopac, Japanese, some unusual bits as I'm sure you can imagine.

Any questions let me know, I'll be checking in  :-*

OK people, tonight is the night. There are a lot of watchers out there. I've fielded a lot of questions this week, and there is one new buyer in particular that I'm interested to see what happens with but more on that at a later date...

The wife and kids get back from China tomorrow evening. I've got videopacs and consoles everywhere around the house. The next 24 hours will be chaos for me  :-*

All these rare objects at the same time; it's too much.  >:D
Maybe a billionaire we do not know will buy everything ...  :'(
Too bad.

Yes I agree it was not ideal, and also no advance notice, sorry for that.

But who knows, maybe a museum?  ;)

Phew, a 20 minute break. I need it... Might just get some food this evening rather than only red wine to toast the winners! Seventy lots is a lot of wine  :P

The prices are crazy - Think you get money for a lot of red wine! :-)

Good luck to all who are bidding - or maybe: All, please go to bed!

My whole collection will not sell for the last amount I was asked for to buy an O3! The guy wanted $10,000, I walked away.

Wow wow wow thank you everyone who bid, it was a very emotional night for me.

This collection represented years and years of collecting, selecting the very best of what came my way, and I hope the new owners will be able to build further and improve on what is there.

And yet, this was only the games, next time it will be the console collection and all the things I ran out of time to list... One more round still to come, watch this space ???

I hope, that till your next wave of wonderful Videopac items, we all have some time to earn some money.

If not, it could be, that you don`t get the money you could get.

Please think about

Thank you.  :)

Again, I know I have some outstanding messages and I will get to them, just been tied up with work the last few days. Sorry for the delay.

The first 7 packages went out at the beginning of the week, so hopefully some of you will start to get things arriving soon  :)

I'm back! Sorry got several big projects ongoing, and my focus was elsewhere. I'll be looking at this Wednesday & Thursday this week as I am at a trade show in London all day tomorrow.

Hi All,

Back again! The charity event I was heavily involved in organising went well yesterday so I'm back on videopac sales. I managed to only get one deal complete after my last message  :-[

Anyway I'll be back on the rest of these now. I'm not going to start on the next installment until I've wrapped up the outstanding bits, not until I've had a chat with those still waiting for things anyway.

George.
