Today I was contacted by a woman called Carole. Her father passed away just recently leaving a lot of Atari gear…manuals…machines…joysticks…software etc. Some of this gear is in Tauranga and some in Auckland. She’s looking for someone to save it from the tip…especially the gear in Auckland. If the Auckland gear is not taken by Saturday the stuff will be in the skip bin on the way to the dump.
If there is anyone in/near either place who wants this gear please send me a Private Message (don’t post a public request). I’ll pass details of the first persons who message me (for Auckland and Tauranga - let me know your mobile number and email) onto Carole. Let me know if you are interested in Tauranga, Auckland or both. If you are not the first to respond, I’ll also pass the details on to Carole so she has others to contact if things fall through with the first responders.
I don’t know the details of what’s on offer or its condition. Bear in mind this women has just lost her father. She’s keen to save stuff from the tip if people find it useful but I can’t imagine she’s be interested in a lot of people looking over the stuff to cherry pick. Any of you that have gone through the stress of both losing a loved one and wrapping up the estate will know what I mean. I imagine she’ll be looking for someone to take the lot.
Anyway, there may be some vintage goodies in there. Bags the Atari 800 if there is one!
