We’re Selling a Pile of Old Junk on Ebay if You want Some!

Dress it up in fancy terms if you like. Antique, salvaged, preloved, retro, vintage…
Do you know there is a reason they don’t still make those old 1970s-80s toys & games: because modern stuff is better.

If that old vintage/retro/ modern-antique game or toy of nostalia was all that good some company would still be making it and selling it new on Amazon & in Smyths for a nice profit.

Fortunately for me, sitting in my home surrounded by a pile of old junk, there are people out there with more money than sense! And with fond memories of childhood xmases. They are monitoring their WATCH LISTS and calculating their max bids. Fine for the over 40s but I hope they don’t expect to impress any young people with this stuff. Because it really is unimpressive by modern standards.
(I am guilty though – Later I will tell you what old games I remember)

Who wants a 1990s Nintendo Game Boy when you can have a 2011 Nintendo 3DS, infact even an old obsolite DS of 5 years ago is better than the Game Boy.
I loved tetris too but you can get it in modern formats…

My own childhood & teenage years memories are filled with the extended family sitting and playing the card game cheat. All you need are lots of people and two packs of cards (no good with a small number). Also Great Game Of Britain. A brilliant fun board game – which I believe is still in production – therefore – proves my point.

  • Etiquette, Shame and The Huffington Post May 25, 2014
    I was a guest on HuffPost Live this week in a segment purporting to discuss the ins and out of workplace bathroom etiquette. We’ve been here before, but it seems like bathroom etiquette at work is the hot topic that just won’t go away. It was one of those slightly awkward four-way video chats but […]

    or at least they did before the election. It almost sounded too easy. Well, it’s too early to comment on progress but it it not looking so easy.     Advertisements
  • Thanet District Council tackle Dog Poo
    I’m sure the overwhelming majority of residents will be pleased if UKIP can get on top of the dog poo problem. There is no easy solution as councils around the country have tried to tackle this with the Keep Britain Tidy campaign for at least 30 years (that I know of). One council tried Doggie Loos […]

    For those who enjoy the maths behind the headlines or have been enjoying #thanetrigged I can share with you this extract from a much larger spreadsheet of results. In the South Thanet parliamentary constituency there are two wards that are part of Dover District Council (by the way Dover are responsible for elections in that […]
