    So, I am new to the pinball world. I am already feeling so discouraged because no one is selling anything in Atlanta....I am looking to purchase a few used machines and no one is selling! I think there are companies that are buying them all up right away....

    Yes, there is a lot of competition for pinball machines. Collectors tend to watch for-sale listings like hawks.

    However, winter is generally the slow time of the year. Games usually start showing up for sale again in larger numbers after it starts getting warmer again. Also keep an eye on when pinball shows happen in your area--there is usually a wide selection available there.

    What kind of pins are you looking for? There are lots of people in the Atlanta area. Many pins get sold without ever going on sites like Craigslist.

    Drive to Allentown in May, you should get your machine and at a decent price.

    There is a large collector community here in Atlanta, and I can help you network. I’ll send you a pm

    Lots of people are selling things in Atlanta. I sold 5 machines in the last week. I only listed one of them as the rest sold through my network of friends.

    * Come to a pinball league event. There are multiple leagues in the area.
    * Go to Portal Pinball arcade and talk with people there. Portal also has monthly and weekly leagues with collectors and non collectors alike.

    Also, come to SFGE. Lots of games for sale there. Sunday deals are the best!

    This is true. I did the drive the last two years and there were a lot of good deals. Many people network deals before the show so that they are guaranteed to have something to bring back. The down side is that it’s 13 hours each way, and 700 of the 800 miles are on two lane freeways. If there is an accident or a lane is closed for construction it becomes an even longer drive
