    If people have vinyl LPs they don’t want then let me know – I love it!

    PSP with Games and Movies.

    Genuine MB Roof Bars for Mercedes CLS and Mercedes E Class Estate.

    PS2 with Games.

    Old Bang & Olufsen Music Centre.

    Sony Video Camera (Not Digital before anyone asks)

    And a whole loft of stuff !

    All stuff that i could maybe shift on ebay but i would get a fraction of the original value (if anything for) and so i am reluctant to part with it.

    And you could also buy on ebay for next to nothing if you ever changed your mind and decided that you really did need a mini disk player after all.

    2 windsurfers, currently being used as shelves in the garage, one day I’ll have to cut them up and take them down the tip but I can’t bring myself to do it yet.

    Pair of Salomon 1080s, gone a bit soft, see above.

    Assorted diving kit, not used since I got asthma.

    2 DVD players and 2 Freeview recorders in the loft.

    Photographic processing kit and enlarger, also in the loft.

    The potential need for roof repairs means I’ll have to empty the loft at some stage and sort a lot of this out. Mostly not worth ebaying though, and taking it down the tip recycling centre seems such a waste.

    Tamiya R/C car

    They must hold their value.

    You know, I’ve no idea. It was entry level when it was new, but it’s barely used.

    PS2 with Games.

    Oh god, consoles.

    PS1, PS2, Dreamcast, Gamecube… All worth about 20p now.

    Where are you? What boards are they?

    Why hoard? Get rid of it whilst it still has some value, clutter is annoying and eventually likely to be worthless ending up in a dump. So give it a 2nd life whilst you still can!

    Depends if you call it hoarding. Most of my stuff is things I’ll use again, some day, just not yet. The rest is stuff that I’ll probably strip down to components and hack together into something electromechanically fun. Plus some old PC bits that hold no value.

    I had a massive clearout of Lego, Star Wars stuff, Action Man and a big pile of board gameswhen I moved house 7 years ago and regret it now!

    Still have a Nintendo Game Boy, a Tamiya car, massive box of Scalextric and a Subbuteo pitch glued to a board with a load of nearly-complete teams.

    If anyone’s got any lego they want rid of, my little boy would be very happy to take it off your hands.

    Want to set up a swap shop?!

    Cougar, what is it, my brother had a Thunderdragon I think. He eventually swapped it for an ultra high end carbon fibre chassis thing that I can’t remember the name of but he never got that going, no idea what happened to that.

    It is, ah, a Madcap I think. Built to stock apart from uprated suspension (the original was terrible) and I left the sticker off the wing because it was terrible (it read “Never Give Up!!” or something equally cringeworthy).

    Somewhere in this dump is a bag-o-bits with chargers and controllers; I’m blowed if I know where though.

    Somewhere i have an external firewire cd/dvd reader/writer. I assume that is also now worthless. Is firewire redundant now?

    Teaboy – I would be keen to take the Subbuteo teams off you if you are willing to sell.

    Photographic processing kit and enlarger, also in the loft.

    Would probably take that off you if you want rid… For a donation to a charity of your choice maybe?

    Or some original Xbox games? 😉

    Not so much the fact that it’s worth a fraction of the original cost, but that fact that it’s a faff to stick it on ebay or whatever and visit the post office daily to post it all.

    For starters…
    Nintendo N64 +games
    Nintendo Gamecube +games
    Atari 1040Ste +games etc.
    Couple of CRT monitors
    1 defective 32in CRT TV
    Random PC bits… mobos, RAM sticks, etc. (might be a case or 2 too)
    1 Scott Vail MTB (ca. 1996)
    1 Ridgeback Rapide roadbike (ca. 1989)
    1 Canon EOS SLR 35mm (forget the model – the one that was one above the Dixon’s exclusive)
    1 cheap hifi (effectively been an ornament for 8 years)

    Thanks but I couldn’t bring myself to chuck them years ago and I’m living in hope that they’ll be played with again soon!

    I’ll have a rummage and let you know if I’ve got any I can spare.

    I have a Quad 33 / 303 sat in a cardboard box in the shed…..
    My Father moved recently and he was going to put it in the skip !?!?
    Bad memories for him of trying to sell it a few years ago and getting seriously harrassed by a quad “Expert”

    I couldnt let him skip it…. but I cant bring myself to ebay it !!

Heaps of old MTB wheels with rusty rustless spokes, Over a dozen pairs of mountain boots and I only use one pair, and 10 pairs of rock boots/shoes and I haven’t climbed since ’96. Oh yeah and a big blue barrel full of climbing gear.
