Retro Shops/Bargains/Auction Links

Hi folks

Tim from Rewind Bits & Rewind Gaming has kindly offered me a 10% discount code to offer to fellow Boards.ie users.

I've recently used Rewind Bits to buy two Sega Game Gear capacitor kits, and found the products had a great attention to detail. All the capacitors were laid out & labelled, and even came with a colour installation manual & excerpts from their forum that had user input. I was quite impressed to say the least, so hopefully we can avail of this discount, I know I will!

The code will have unlimited use per customer, and the usual exceptions apply (It won't apply to postage, & can't be used with any other promotion or sales price). There seems to be a nice little supply of hard to get bits, & repair kits. Rewind Gaming also has games/consoles aimed at Retro collectors, & the prices seem quite competetive.

Anyhow, please PM me for the code, as we've chosen to keep it out of the public domain to be fair to Tim. And please do not post the code elsewhere or share it with those who arn't registered here...or you'll have me to answer to

Thanks to Ciderman for giving the thread the green light. Feel free to contact Tim at any of the above sites too.

Retro Shops/Bargains/Auction Links

There seemed to be a need for somewhere for folk to shout out about their Retro game shops, ebay deals and bargains seen around the place.
So here we go.
If you own a shop, either online or on street, if you have an ebay store post here.
Please post once your store announcement and occasionally if you have a sale on, but please don't abuse the system as you will get a ban!

For the rest of us, this is the perect place to link to deals on ebay you think A&R readers will want to see, link to adverts sales people would want also.
Once again, if there is abuse, if there are links to non-A&R stuff you will get warnings and bans!

This is an experiment, we'll see if it works and, if not, it will be removed.
So, remember, this is not a licence to SPAM!

Dont know if this should be in here but does anyone know if the lad in FADE ST. (is rare the name of the shop?) has a phone number. I might be up in Dublin with work soon and wouldnt mind ringing the shop to see is he open or if he does trade ins or takes requests for games etc.

A link to an eBay stoe but a good one in my opinion. Ive bought a couple of game lots (11 games and 10 games) from him for relatively cheap. 25 dollars and 32 dollars respectively with shipping.

Worth a look.

Al.

p.s. is this not only going to lead to us sniping on each others bids?

Post links as you have them, if it's not appropriate I'll edit the post with a reason, ok?

If you really want to win something then don't post a link to it on a forum.

Yeah exactly, unless we set up some sort of cartel and draw staws for sniping bids, but all it would take is one rouge user (most likely me I'd say) to ruin the whole system

What's up man? This is Nicholas from The R.A.G.E on Fade St. in Dublin. We're open from 11-7 Tuesday through Sunday. Our phone number is 01-677-9495. I will inform this thread when we have a sale or special offer. I give an update whenever we get deliveries of consoles & games via our Facebook page www.Facebook.com/theragedublin. In general the feedback by everyone to our video game section has been far more positive an inspiring than expected. If this continues I aim to expand the entire basement floor to stock retro games and consoles. Thanks for you're support.

Nicholas

Would it be possible to copy & paste your Facebook stock updates here too?

I could post every update no problem, and if you would like it in this thread I will gladly do it. If boards.ie are cool with that then so am I. I don't want to get warned or in trouble for advertising or anything but I guess there's only one way to find out. We're getting a delivery in today, I'll post the contents here.

Good point, I suppose it would come across as very 'active'. Cider/LoGiE & the CMods would have to give that the green light. But incase any of you are watching, I detest facebook & all the mallarky Cheers anyway, I've heard great things about your shop...so far I've resisted going in because I just know if I do, you'll be able to close early for xmas

I would rather peeps use Facebook for such regular updates rather than have this thread updated often with stock lists etc.
Once you have bookmarked a facebook page it is easy enough to check, and the vendor can update that as often as he/she likes.
Notice of a big sale is welcome though.

Do you have to sign up to Facebook to see a users page?

Depends on the user, they can block access to the public or whoever they want. I also detest Facebook but was badgered into signing up, never use it though. But would make an exception in this case to check out the shop updates.

And a shipment is coming in today? Nooooooooooooo..........no way of getting in to have a look. o1s1n should take orders and pop over for us!
