    boxed master system £2/£3 cant remember at a car boot

    MIL got a dress bangle whn cleaned up turns out it was real silver worth about £50 and she paid £1 for it

    Until yesterday Ive never really been mega lucky with these things. But was on the way to collect daughter from nursery and in the window of the local oxfam shop was a sealed copy of the back to the future trilogy bluray! Went in and asked price-£3.49! lol

    No idea why someone would donate something so recent and I dont think oxfam have caught on to bluray yet but thats my bargain of the year(unless zavvi do actually send out the forty quid wiis-I wait and see)

    lucky you

    we have a small charity shop in a very small town near us and its run by 3 old dears who are very lovely but have no idea of the value of stuff and they just charge £1 for everything! i got new football tops for my son and couldnt believe it as they should have been at least £35 each (2 fromthe premier league and 1 scottish) i know it doesnt sound much but when you got a few kids and want to make them happy then this was a brilliant buy for us

    I've had a few things from Car Boots...

    NES, mint and boxed with ROB robot and about 25 games - £20
    N64 with around 15 games (including conkers bad fur day and pokemon stadium 2) - £15

    It's gettin much harder to grab the bargains now though, people wake up at what seems like 4am to get their the earliest!

    I got a Radley bag at my local car boot for £2 and a victorian rose gold and seed pearl brooch for 10p

    last year i brought two Apple AirPort Express 's virtually brand new with all the boxes etc.
    RRP on these is £81 EACH

    I paid £7 for the two
    kept one and sold the other on ebay for £65

    From a real auction rather than Ebay i bought a box of 30 Canon 1.4 extenders (camera lens) for £700ish
    At the time they were about £350 each new and i sold 2 half price and the other 28 as a job lot to a camera shop for £140 each

    oh another one, NES boxed with light gun and approx 15 games £5

    Got a atari flashback system brand new £1
    playstation 1 with games £1

    I may have got a red wii from zavvi ebay for £39.99, lol

    got to wait and see if i receive it

    My best has got to be a 2 seater sofa, fairly modern and in good condition, for £24, off eBay.

    i've just found a nice looking little chinese type vase behind some stuff in the cupboard while i was doing a clear out


    probably just auction it, see what i get, be happy with a fiver - any more than that is a bonus....................

    Did it look anything like THIS??

    Best is not mine but my parents, they bought a chest of drawers to use as storage in the garage for £5 or so from someone who does house clearances when they got them home there was £160 in crisp new £20's under the lining paper.


    A couple of weeks ago I bought a brand new pair of homeplug adapters for £2, and also once bought a LCD monitor (only 15") for £1.50 but had no stand which was ideal as I was looking to turn an old PC into a Jukebox in a cabinet over the winter (still on my to do list).

    Also had a brand new UPS (uninterruptable power supply) for £10 (retailed for about £120 at the time.

    A mate got a PS2 for 80p.


    AS for ebay an original [email protected] Jones treadle sewing machine in Art Deco cabinet for £1, needed a £2 spring to fix it.


    But the best of all deals?

    2 mispriced King Size beds and mattresses for £2 from Debenhams - arrived the day we moved house and I broke the old bed dismantling it to move, so a bargain as it was much needed too (although didnt know this at the time of ordering) the other went to my parents
