Well I guess it is all down to anyone willing to sell and at the moment there are more buyers than sellers. I have used Steve’s service a lot and think he does a sterling job. The spares are now coming I from the regular sellers who sold at collectors auctions, so you will see these listed and relisted regularly, although a few are mine like the Mills lock, which I will only sell at the right price ;-)

In terms of of auctions, keep on waiting as no one is coming forward to run, so good luck on that :HaHa:

Also I understand Steve plans to run regular slot machine meets, something I have probed on here a few times with little interest and will look at doing them are various locations around the country.the first may happen in Norfolk at one our well known collectors site at the end of November and will be updated on Colcon site…….look forward to that :cool:

I think things are looking positive !!THUMBSX2!! Join in :D

I'm fairly new to this slot machine malarky.

Collector Connector has allowed me to purchased my first machines, and offered an environment I feel comfortable making offers in. Historic prices give context, good clear videos and Steve answers questions fairly promptly and honestly.

I'd like to see more machine offered, equally the pace is quite nice as I don't have to worry about fancying five machines at the same time and which one do I try for.

I prefer this to an auction and to Ebay. I never made it to Coventry as I nearly never saw any advance publicity for it.

As a younger collector the Slot world has felt a fairly closed shop. I found buying at Elephant house a mine field, not because of the quality of lots but because of the variety on offer and the lack of context with prices - it was hard to work out what was worth what. Hence I kept to Fairground Art, which is a world I know fairly well.

Colcon - I hope it succeeds as it makes buying a doddle. I'll still attempt the odd purchase on Ebay but Colcon is by far and away my preference for buying.

Just my view

Personally, ColCon is much better for me, as I found it difficult to get to the auctions as I'd either been working all Sat night, or in the pub 'till about 3AM.
I've bought a few things now & also sold a few machines, & was very happy with the prices I got.

‘‘Twas a great day. I was reluctant to join Colcon but thanks to hearing about the event, I took the plunge. I didn’t really get it at first but having just got my sales advice from a local auction house, with the fees involved, I must have been mad not to have signed-up earlier. Still, Steve has a decent collection of machines following today and some are really nice. They belonged to me!!! I loved the social aspect of the day and it was great to meet up with Tom, Paul, Gary and Nigel at last. Great to see the graphics man too and the rest of the usual gang.

My wife says it seems like it’s more a club than an auction house. I hadn’t thought of it like that before but yes, I’m in the club. !!RAYOF!!

Thank you Peter for being such a fabulous host and to Steve Hunt for bringing us all together. Not forgetting the tea and Belgian bun. Photos to follow of some very handsome chaps on machines.
