Legend of Zagor board game…

I picked up this amazing board game at a car boot sale for £3, in this video I take a look inside and find out what is included and if it is complete.

It is a very scarce game and is really holding it’s value – these are well worth picking up is you see them at the right price.

Produced by Parker/Hasbro in 1993 and I believe it was a European exclusive issue.

Stick around till the end of the video when I take a look on ebay to find out how much these games are selling for today.

Why we love jumble sales so much…

Andrea and I love nothing more than a good rummage at a jumble sale. Check out the videos below to see some of the items we have found and even some footage taken at the sales.

 

What is a jumble sale?

Here in the UK a jumble sale is usually run by a local group or charity, such as the cub scouts, a church, or school.

They tend to be held in a village hall, church building or community centre. Usually consisting of rows of tables with junk piled high, they tend to be seperated into tables of clothing, brick-a-brack (general junk), books, and toys.

Usually run by volunteers, the prices are normally very cheap, all the items are donated and the organisers want it all to go, so the items are priced cheap to get it gone, often towards the end, things are reduced to as low as 10p or even given away for free.

We find they are a great place to experiment with our purchases and take a few chances on things, because the prices are so low the investment is minimal and many times we have learnt about a new niche from taking a chance on an item at a jumble sale.

 

Be prepared.

Get there early, some of our local regular sales are so popular people start queuing an hour or more before the doors even open.

Also jumble sales have a reputation for being quite ferocious, expect there to be pushing and shoving, it can be utter mayhem especially at the start! So get your elbows ready and get stuck in.

A few big bags are essential, and pockets full of change will speed things up.

 

How can I find a Jumble Sale?

Keep an eye on local papers, community notice boards as well as searching on facebook and google and hopefully you will manage to find a jumble sale in your area soon

Many jumble sales are held annually or in some cases every few months.

Also if you do find a jumble sale remember to ask the organisers when the next one is or if they know of any others in the area. Also try to get to know other jumble sale regulars, get chatting & try to find out about other jumbles they visit 🙂

 

Check out this video below in which I show how much I sold some items we found at jumble sales.

How to find local bargains on ebay…

In the video below I share how I find items on ebay which are for local collection only.

Items without a postage option have a drastically reduced audience & fewer bids tend to be placed on ‘pick up only’ items leading them to selling for much less than they normally would. Continue reading
