Re: Scarborough Fair Collection...help wanted

You've just hit the nail there Mr Moon! Next time I set up shop I will send Mr Slotalot out in a "magical mystery tour bus" to collect all fellow slotties from far and wide! No excuses then ha ha!

Re: Scarborough Fair Collection...help wanted

This topic just confirms how difficult it is to set up and successfully run a penny arcade. At the risk of blowing my own trumpet, my last exhibition ran for 15 months operating 50 odd machines all working 99% of the time. Few people would see the work going on till late hours of the night and the e...

Re: Essex Auction

So I decided to "pop" along to Essex (530 mile round trip) as I had my eye on a couple of lots. Most of the slotty stuff was grim to say the least and prices achieved were extraordinary!

Dreadful music

Whoever is responsible for that dreadful music prior to Kevin taking the rostrum? I suspect it's JC but apologizes if I'm wrong haha! Maybe Badpenny could bring along his "One Direction" cassette. :oops:
