OK, so there I was quietly re-cataloguing and re-packing my lovely Mint/NearMint MERP collection ("my preciousssss….what me? Nothing at all, just doing some tidying. Honest") and I discovered I was missing an Adventure Module; Bree and the Barrow Downs. I vaguely remember selling a copy ages ago and must have forgotten to replace it.

So anyone got one for sale?  Needs to be a tip-top condition or it will be bullied by the other super-modules.

Will pay a goodly sum to fill thus gap… Help !  :D

Also... here is a US-only lot that might go cheapish for someone who wants to start a collection (condition is a bit rough but you have to start somewhere and would be great for a playing lot).

Yes, that is the same guy from the Storage Wars.  I can't believe all of the money he is making by selling his hats for $30.00.  They are selling like crazy??

Only in America.........

$25 for his hat!

He has enough feedback to understand ebays rules on damage returns but still talks about not being responsible for shipping. I would definitely check to see if these merp books are complete with maps before bidding.

Others who watch can correct me, but it is a reality show following people who bid on forfeited storage lockers.  They get 5 minutes to look at what might be in it before the auction.  Are there treasures or not basically.

Correct.

And one of the Storage Wars buyers a few years ago bought a storage locker once owned by Paris Hilton, and sold the contents for 1 or 2 million.

I enjoy watching the show, and it's new kissin' cousin Storage Wars Texas.

And there is another storage locker auction show with the two guys that are partners, but I forgot which network hosts it...

Thanks for the replies on Storage Wars guys. We haven't imported that programme yet (I don't think). I am a proper Telly snob* so I think I will give it a miss.


*although one of my guilty pleasures is Man v Food. I just wish they wouldn't patronise the audience by repeating and recapping everything as if we all have two second memories/attention spans.

OT I know - but last year when I had a wider cable subscription, I became hooked on Dog the Bounty Hunter !!   :D  :D

It is brilliantly made - every episode a perfect narrative arc.

The show drives me crazy, because typically they vastly overpay for the contents of the storage lockers.  They manage to hit a couple of big ones a year which makes up for their hundreds of misses.

Well, you know how it works. He can say whatever he wants, but Ebay is the final arbiter. He can say he doesn't accept returns, damage, or pink elephants, but if you do a chargeback he's fucked....Ebay will refund you and you have the option of flaming his DSRs.

You are totally correct.  Plus, they count the value of the items as profit event though they haven't sold the stuff yet.  As all of us collectors and Ebay sellers know, stuff doesn't always sell for its "appraised" value.  I must say it is entertaining watching the various personalities bid up the lockers just to screw the other guys!!
