  1. File this one under conquests at the flea market ! I'm on vacation this week, and today, I picked up a fully working, practically new Commodore SX-64 for frankly a cheap price. I'm super-excited, because I never thought I would lay eyes on one of these outside of maybe a classic gaming convention or some such event, let alone actually have one in my possession. But lo and behold, here it is, and she works great. It's a bit comical, actually, as I was able to get a discount of the sticker because it lacked the power cable with it, and I brought that detail up (nothing a quick trip to Walmart and a few more dollars couldn't fix, of course). The lady that sold it at the flea market had no idea what it was. She apparently thought it was some sort of fancy old military radio system or something like that (it was in a booth along with some of that type stuff: shortwave radios, scanners, reel-to-reel recorders, and the list. I just let her keep right on thinking that as she rung up the price, of course. I've also picked up quite a number of Atari 2600, Intellivision, and Colecovision games while I've been here, as well as one Commodore 64 cart (Frogger II: Threedeep), which I have been able to test out on the SX-64 and can confirm that it's fully working. I'm also taken aback at just how great the screen looks on these things, as well. Everything is nice and sharp and clear, which I wasn't expecting given such a tiny screen, even though I knew in back of my mind it's a CRT. So, for you other SX-64 owners out there, I do have a question. Has anyone tried a 1541 Ultimate II cart out on the machine and, if so, what's your experience with it? I know the built-in disk drive is set to automatically be device #8, and I'm assuming I will need to disable the internal drive in order to use the 1541 Ultimate II as Device #8 instead. I've not been able to do much research on that, and I'm just now starting my Googling of information like this, so if anyone can give me some pointers and places to look (beyond the usual resources like Lemon64, of course, which I will certainly peruse), that would be awesome.
  2. Good morning! And a very good morning it is if I do say so myself. Nice and sunny about the grounds today, I am indeed enjoying this early spring weather. I thought I'd pop in just to let you all know that in my latest adventure, I've come to be a distinguished owner of a dusty, old Colecovision console with two malfunctioning controllers, a damaged but, now repaired (thanks to my efforts), A/C adapter, Atari 2600 expansion module and Donkey Kong cartridge. I managed to land this and some other fine bits of retro-gaming goodness in battered old box at a local flea market and I simply must say that inspite of the two faulty controllers and a few other minor short comings it is simply smashing! Allow me to present you with a few photos of this wonderous find.
  3. At the flea market I probably hit he best possible place. I didn't find anything rare or something like that but I did find some amazing deals.So here's the story: I wanted to burn a hole in my pocket that day so I looked up all the local flea market or swap meet or whatever you call it. The closest one that I haven't been to yet was this small one that was actually 2 hours from where I live, but had a great website, so then I packed some water and started driving away to this place. Once I got there it was actually double the size of what had been described on the webpage. Although its size I did't find one game until I came to one stand. It was a two brothers(I think) who were renting a double booth and selling old and new records. At the corner of my eye on their stand I saw a Colorsport 8 (pong clone) complete in a 70s like box. It screamed 70s more than anything else! The box was in PRISTINE condition.The two guys knew what it was and we talked over it alot and one of them told me that he had owned a game store but wasn't interested in that stuff anymore. He knew prices but never gave a price over the fair line. When I finally asked him where he would land the price on that console he said $10 .I screamed inside my head. Bought it in a heartbeat but I also asked if he had anything else then he took out from under part of the table a HUGE chest. The chest was covered in controllers of all types games for the nes, snes, VCS you name it. I bought almost everything for about $20. AWESOME :-o !!! I looked around the other part of his stand and found the jackpot: I saw an Odyssey 2,an intv, and a 5200 all lined up with all of the correct hook ups. He said a dollar a piece. I couldn't control my excitement. Next to all of that he gave me a complete Super Metroid for $5. Since he didnt care much he also gave me some 2600 commons for free . When I went back to my man cave I found that not one thing he sold to me was non-working. A couple weeks later I bout a gamecube ps1 cib dreamcast and a sega saturn 5 each and all also worked. I completely cleaned the guy out. so happy :) :-D ;-) :grin: :thumbsup:
  4. Hi guys, I've recently found that my favorite place to find games for cheap such as the Englishtown and Poconos Flea Markets have gone a little dry. I only found one to four stands at each market with games and all were ridiculously overpriced. I live in North New Jersey, and where I live, the two swap meets above were my main places finding games other than online. Do you guys know any good swap meets to find retro games near the North Jersey area?
