I posted a while ago about downsizing, and have gotten a significant way through.  I converted to a webpage - it’s much easier to navigate than Google Sheets.  That being said, I’ve gone through most of my Apple and Atari stuff (still more to come) and have reached a milestone where I feel comfortable sharing with the group.

The new link: http://www.theshusters.com/bobvintage.html

Please don't share for now without asking me.  Right now it’s just open to this group - my contact info is intentionally missing from the webpages.  If you can read this, you have my email.

Email me with questions or offers!  Please don't make offers on the list, but if you want to discuss my process and feel the group would benefit, then by all means knock yourself out!  :)

Well, folks, I’ve gotten to the age where I need to seriously downsize my hobbies and collections, not wanting to leave it to my children to have to deal with in later years. (I had to do that recently for a relative.) On the electronics side, I’ve decided to concentrate on my vintage video game systems - and therefore sell off most of my vintage computer stuff. My collection includes mostly 8-bit stuff: TRS-80 Models I, IV, M100, etc. - Atari 400, 800, Stacy, Portfolio, ST, etc. - C64/VIC20 - T/S1000 (including an unbuilt kit), Apple II, II+, IIe, IIe Platinum, IIgs - Wang WLTC - Mattel Aquarius - TI-99/4A - many others that I still have to dig out - plus lots of peripherals, disks, manuals, etc. Also have some newer Macs starting with a Mac Plus in an Apple carrying bag.

I’m starting with you guys before trying to list elsewhere, although I may hit some of the dedicated FaceBorg pages (such as for Aquarius and Apple II.) I'm willing to ship some of the smaller items, but in general systems or monitors will need to be picked up here (near the Fort Washington exit of the PA Turnpike) or nearby, and cash or PayPal for payment. I may also consider trades for some of the video game stuff I’m looking for.

It pains me to do this, but the clutter is getting out of hand, and I haven’t touched most of these in years. It’s time for someone else to enjoy.
