I will be bringing games casettes and some cables. Maybe some manuals too.

If anyone would like any cables made up, let me know!

Think it's an excellent idea. Especially for low value or very heavy items which if you buy off Ebay end up triple the price because of the postage.

I've got loads of stuff of which I've got duplicates or came surplus to requirements in larger lots - specifically:
Spectrum and C64 cassette games (lots)
VIC 20 games (some)
Amiga floppy disk games (some)
Interfaces of various kinds
Books/manuals
Power packs/ Joysticks /Cassette decks
Also a number of boxed Speccy 48's and a C64 which I don't think I'm going to keep.

I can bring these along if anyone is interested ?

@Quagmire - PM me names of any games/ publishers etc you are interested in and I'll make sure I bring along on the day (and I'll test them too - got far too many to test all my spares :-).

No obligation, but at least I'm bringing what people want.

I'll see what I can carry. Anything I don't sell I'll have to take to Luton and then back to Doncaster.

Might be inclined to donate some to the RCM.

Got a box full of C64 cover tapes if anyone's interested in them?  All depends on what Slick and everyone else is bringing on the day whether there will be room in the boot though.
