Discuss any interesting vintage computer Trade Me items here

I despise this website BUT it has a Vintage Category and when I looked today, I actually found stuff in it.

Just might be worth keeping an eye out. Someone else has listed MS DOS / Windows disks but not put it in vintage.

I put some stuff up , mainly because its cheaper for $1 auctions, if it does not sell over $20 its free selling. where as TM if it sells at $1 you pay 50c in fee's, also you can if you want post more than 1 picture with out charge.
I still list on TM but for the more expensive items, Wheedle may not take off , after all there have been a few auction site start up in NZ but none have ever got far, I believe the Fitzgerald site is now defunct, not seen any new auction of computers for a long time now.

We've had a look at Wheedle, but feel at this time we are better off just listing on TradeMe, especially for vintage auctions. We may look at in the future running some auctions on Wheedle of bulk items just to test the waters. Of course we'll let you guys know if we do start listing vintage auctions there.
molten_media on TradeMe, which is also my place of work. No particular interests apart from passing on some of the gems that come through the door.
