Quoted from TechnicalSteam:
Noticing somewhat of a Market slump in older games. Williams / Bally B titles and even a few newer titles.
Not sure if I should adjust my prices with the recession or if I'm just not listing in the 'new go to groups'
Are there any particular Facebook groups I should be aware of when listing a game?
Does anyone even bother with Craigslist in STL anymore?
I've got 6 games I want to sell or swap out. I've been thinking maybe about auction / swap meet in a public space.
For those of us with families, don't really want strangers in our homes maybe a yearly swap / auction would be killer.
Would be cool to have a Missouri / St. Louis / KC or Columbia MO event. Where we
bring our machines to be Judged / Swap / Auction or Sell.
This could be done at:
Hotel (expensive ) VFW, Masonic Lodge, Farmers Market, Flea Market , Machinist or other Hall.
Any ideas. Talked to one person about setting up Tents outside somewhere. Possible but ..
Would anyone out there be willing to do something like this. On a specific date.
I'd be willing to help out volunteer.. Anyone Else..
Maybe we could have a event / tournament that corresponds at a location.
Could Missouri pull this off?
From what I understand, I was told there used to be an occasional swap meet - arcade-centric, but the venn-diagram of interest is nearly a circle. I was told this by the guy who runs the arcade out at West County Lanes. I'm sure he's around here somewhere because I know he was into pins as well, but I haven't seen him online over on KLOV in quite some time. Over on KLOV he went by "mr.fixit".
I hear ya on the recent black hole. I've been trying to unload a cheap Centipede on a couple different Facebook groups and KLOV all summer and it's not going well. I was able to sell my Gorgar pretty quick though, so maybe the pin market is stronger around here than I think. I'd love to attend a swap meet, but I definitely don't have the space connections to even think about trying to organize one.
