Some stuff just has a certain cachet and doesn't go down. But in general
it seems not many people are bidding as of late. A lot of stuff goes
unsold or for unheard of prices.

But don't tell anyone! I wouldn't want to create a bidding war while I'm
having fun snatching up stuff for reasonable prices ;^)

I have not been able to sell a boxed (new) Sharp PC-5000 that uses bubble
memory. You'd think someone would want to snatch this up considering how
rare and cool they are.

Then again, I offered it to the list before and there were no takers, so
maybe I'm the only one that can appreciate it.

Any offers?
