NES and SNES find!

The other day, just me walking about in a thrift shop when my eye meets a box, stuffed away under a counter.
Call it a hunch or whatever you like, but I pulled it out and discovered a sweet deal.

Here’s are some of my today finds:

A NES console, 2 controllers, a zapper gun, a SNES with 2 controllers.

Games for Nes:

Turbo racing
Turtles 3, Manhattan Project
Tetris (2x)
Kirby’s adventures
Chip ’n dale, rescue rangers
Donkey kong classics
Duck tales 2
Festers quest
Maniac mansion
Super mario bros
Duck hunt (2X)
Super mario bros 2 (2x) en 3 (2x)
Gremlins 2
Zelda 2, the adventures of link


Super mario world
Yoshis island
Yogi bears cartoon capers
Super mario kart
Street racer
Super mario all stars
Zelda 1

And there is more:

A pro action replay for Gameboy
Super mario land
Bugs bunny 2

I’ll say.. it’s quite a catch. And that for a couple of Euro’s!
Ofcourse, it’s all nicely tucked away to save for the next couple of years (and play it now and again 🙂 )

Tomorrow it’s thriftshopday for me again, let’s see what I bring home this time! I’ll keep you posted!


Antique, Vintage, Retro… What exactly is the difference?

For quite a while now I am a huge fan of second hand stuff. But I’ve never seemed to be able to tell the difference between Vintage, Retro and Antique. So, before I go on and tell you about my finds, I want to educate myself, and while I’m at it, you too!



An antique is “a work of art, piece of furniture, or decorative object made at an earlier period and according to various customs laws at least 100 years ago.


Although widely misused, the term “vintage” refers to an item that is at least 20 years old or more.


retro simply refers to anything that looks out of style for the current time period.


So in my next blog, there’s gonna be a lot of NES and SNES (and 30 games, zapper gun and more fun stuff) I have scored lately, but also paintings and other antiques and vintage finds!

I am always interested in the uncommon stuff!
