Hey all. I can't see that anyone's posted about this so...

Another Retro Video Games Market on at the Doncaster Dome


Saturday 25th of February from 10am. If you plan to go, go early. The line to get in last time was stood waiting for over half an hour.

I had a stall at this last year. It was a very good day for sellers as anything boxed and in good condition flew away at high prices. If you are a cart only kinda guy its probably not going to be as good as the retro events one that was at Leeds Town Hall last weekend hosted by J+ member Mainvein

Well i was torn between doing either the Leeds one or the Doncaster one, but now i'm not doing either because I have a Switch to pay for. So maybe next time.

Meh, it's not that grim as long as you don't look at people for more than 2 seconds and run away fast when somebody is coming in your general direction. Remember to wear Adidas or Nike trackie bottoms, a Helly Hansen sweater and a baseball cap, then speak like you left school at 13 and you'll be sweet. Can of Relentless in one hand optional but recommended. Welcome to sunny Donny.

'cause mark up tbh, most of them would likely have haggled down a bunch. Didn't get to go this time wifey is ill. But last year you could haggle most of the boxed stuff down to half or do bundles...

They are worth about £100 loose, £140 minty boxed... £200 is "show price"...LOL

Glad to see it's not only CEX that are trying to feck retro prices...

Wow that was a very sweaty experience! Though I had a very nice time and half the stalls were decently priced.
The highlights were seeing the really geekiest geeks blurt out their pent up conversations onto the vendors.
You could see the vendors forced smiles and nods with their thought bubble of "uuh please go away you're scaring me".
