Ends at 8:55 tonight - sorting through and setting up that lot could take some time....

And no, it's not my auction or anyone I know!

PayPal NOT accepted

No warranty given or implied.

Take your own lorry and a wad of notes (after 8.55pm).

Ideal for the budding computer/electronics wizard and junior Sir Alan S.

The wife of one of my staff won a bulk pack of mixed items on ebay for £18 + £20 shipping. It was all genuine and above board. The parcels weighed over 50Kg.

She's split the packs and is now selling small parcels of various things from the win. So far she's made over £250 and there's still lots and lots of stuff to sell.

I'll tip her the nod!

Went for £40.

Told my employee's wife about it but she declined to make a bid as her knowledge of electronic gear is limited and she didn't want any hassle if the things weren't quite what they were meant to be.

I regularly see similar computer related bundles on eBay, especially motherboards, monitors etc.

If someone has the time and the inclination to ensure they are in good working order, then a car boot sale visit could well prove worthwhile.

I know, I am oft tempted- I wonder sometimes if this how folk at Computersfairs get their stock.
The problem?
Where do you keep it all?
We have a 3 bed semi, miniscule outside storage[garage]- and the house is full with our daily stuff with out shop stock laying around

jack-- Get a bigger house or an extension. Then there's always a lock-up somewhere :o)

Talking about bargains, I was at an administration auction a couple of weeks ago. Some of the goods there were fetching ridiculous prices. Reams of copier paper being sold at more than Staples prices. Canteen equipment, again being sold at high prices, yet I was able to buy a bundle of 4 commercial (in good working order) dot matrix printers and a large box of mixed (spares?) items, all for £15.00 + vat.

A very large and extremely heavy (Chubb)safe, didn't even get off the starting price of £5.00. It must have been worth at least 10 times that amount in scrap value alone, I wouldn't like to think of its purchase value today, if purchased new.So if you are in the market, there's bargains out there, if you want and care to look for them.
