    I didn't know they used a competitive pricing structure, I kind a of guessed they priced to clear have they not picked a price yet?

    I'm not sure if that's how it's done in all shops, it probably is, but that's how it's done in the shop I work in. I'm guessing it's done more to get an idea of the general value of the item, or the average price that other people had sold items for.

    Might want to bring some batteries to check if the screen still fully works as the glue that holds them together goes over time. It's apparently repairable though.

    I had to convince a BHF to let me give them a good price for some Skylanders a few months back. Didn't feel right that they were asking something like £2 total when they were worth £2+ each. :p

    Should note that I didn't really succeed. Could only get them up to £5 total before giving up (the reverse haggling went on a while).

    I have visions of a scene similar to the fight over who buys drinks between Mrs Doyle and her friend in Fr Ted.

    On the 24th I'm flying to Germany to stay with my girlfriend for 2 weeks! It's our 6 month anniversary on the 21st :D I've never been on a plane before either! So excited!

    I was able to buy the boxed DMG-01 Gameboy today for £5, with a staff discount of 25%, meaning that all I had to pay was £3.75.
    Here are some photos of the box and the Gameboy itself!

    Yep, my manager actually didn't end up looking it up on eBay. She just asked me how much she should sell it to me for. I didn't suggest a price though, she just decided to sell it to me for a base price of £5.

    Sorry for double post. A lot of little happy moments today.
    • Got a Beatrix Potter 50p in change from a vending machine (the Potter 50ps are quite rare and valuable, and Mum and I both love Beatrix Potter)
    • Found a book I've been really wanting to read in the college library, it's in like-new condition, and I was able to borrow it despite my secondhand-book hygiene phobia and missing my class's library induction
    • Did a (very basic) maths class for the first time in about 5 years and actually wasn't half bad at it!
    • Found out that a few of my classmates are big Game of Thrones fans, so we all spent a while quoting it at each other (and cursing the maths Westeros-style)
    • On the way home, passed a church and saw a gargoyle with a lovely bright flower growing on it
    • Couple of Kindle books I really wanted had steep price drops :)
