Interesting treasures in shops near you?

It's been a long long time since Cash Converters and other little junk shops had dump bins and shelves cascading with things like this, so it's nice to see something like this still in the wild in my town.

They've had an Atari 2600jr in the window for some time now at All About Cash in Reading. Plus a surprising number of old Sega consoles and the like come to them.

Any shops like that where you are and can we see some snaps?

Well, there's a couple of classic machines in this window: https://goo.gl/maps/LjgQ6qSTiy42. Is that the sort of thing you had in mind?

In the shop at the moment.

They don't often go back to the 80s but there's quite an interesting spread there to start off a young retro newbie in the mainstream things.

Some of these pictures shouldn't be sideways but stuff it.
