So, I made this trade about a month ago, but have been busy and haven't had time to post anything about it. Luckily, things have slowed down and I'm going to be back to focusing on my collection.

I was paroozing Craigslist for some old video game stuff and came across a pretty sweet lot - a boxed NES Challenge Set, Dreamcast, a Gameboy color with Pokemon Red, Blue and Gold, 3rd gen Sega Genesis with a 32X expansion, about 25 Genesis games, 3 NES games, a Dreamcast game and 4 32X games. Since I needed a Dreamcast, wanted a boxed NES, had been looking for Pokemon Blue and a gameboy for a while and could always use more Genesis games, this was a -sweet- lot for me. The ad mentioned that the guy didn't want to sell the stuff, but would rather trade. I shot him an e-mail mentioning that I'm willing to trade lessons and had some musical equipment available and he wanted to come by and see what microphones and guitar pedals I had. He stuck around for about an hour after I got all the stuff together, but wasn't interested in anything (which was a bit irritating, considering I had quite a few things he specifically mentioned he wanted), so he left. I later e-mailed him and asked him if he had seen anything he was interested in when he was there and as it turned out, an amp had caught his attention.

It was a Fender Stage Lead 15, which I was selling for about $125, I had about $80 in it. Great amp, though nothing special and a little beat up. But the guy really loved it. I asked him if he would be interested in trading it and to solidify the deal, he also offered a new Vox Wah Pedal he didn't use much. So, for the amp, I got a wah pedal that cost just as much I had in the amp and a huge lot of video games. Among them, I was pretty excited about the boxed NES, Dreamcast, Gameboy and Pokemon Blue, Earthworm Jim, two of the four 32X games (since I haven't had any before) - Knuckles Chaotix and Shadow Squadron, Toxic Crusaders, Gunstar Heroes, Sonic and Knuckles CIB, Taz-Mania, Pac-Man 2 The New Adventures, The Adventures of Mighty Max, Vectorman and the Animaniacs. There's some other good stuff in there, but that's what really made me glad to have traded.

Anyway, I just figured I'd post that here. It was a lot of fun and I hope to be doing a lot more trading and hunting now that things have finally gotten back to normal for a little bit.

Thanks for reading! Smiley

Posted under Introduction, music store, recording, musician, funtimesdeluxe

I'm going to keep this introduction short, as I have a tendency to talk a lot. I'm a 21 year old musician, producer and instructor and I'm very interested in collecting games from the second to the fifth generation. I like trading music stuff for games and have a music store with my dad, where we do a lot of video game trades. We're opening a new location and I'm very excited about incorporating a classic gaming element to the store. This blog is where I'll talk about exciting trades I get and fun stuff going on with the store and gaming get togethers there I will be organizing! I'm very excited about this website and getting my collection together and trading with all the awesome members here.

Anyway, I'm out! Hope to be updating soon with some fun stories!
