I am new here.
I am a child of the 80s and 90s. I love Atari 2600, 7800 and NES. I had the 2600 and NES growing up. I love music and play guitar.
I have a son (9 years old as of March 2016). I am trying to get him to love retro games and toys as much as me. For now, he prefers Minecraft.

Open to retro game/toy trades or junk boxes, etc.

Thanks

Welcome, welcome.

 

Hope to move to the Pacific Northwest someday -- the wife and I fell in love with it on our honeymoon.  We didn't want to come home!

Welcome from the Pacific Northwest. Whereabouts are you located?

Near Portland OR.
I love it. Great outdoors - mountains, forest, ocean. Great food. Good music scene. Unique culture.
We have a great retro gaming expo here every year. About three years ago I attended on a whim and it got me hooked on the retro scene. Just loved playing the games and seeing some of the toys I had when I was younger. I started collecting for this childhood systems the same day.
