A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden
Event:
Come to this swap meet which will be a blast from the past
There are so many people into gaming and also many who love the old retro games. I used to play a lot of these, however, did not keep any of them unfortunately! Nowadays it is great fun to spend the day reliving your childhood favourites.

Now for the first time, there is going to be a swap meet for all you retro fans of these wonderful games! Life was so much simpler in those days and there were no computers to play games on.



This is your chance to buy, sell or swap arcade parts and retro-gaming goodies with other enthusiasts.

WHEN:
This swap meet will be held on Sunday 31st March 2019 from 10.00 am. The markets are open from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm and the arcade opens from 10.00 am to 10.00 pm.
WHERE:
1UP Arcade, Basement Level, 230 Lytton Rd, Morningside
BUYERS:
Come on down to check out Brisbane's biggest selection of arcade and retro console goods from private vendors.
SELLERS:
If you have any arcade or retro games in your possession and are looking to sell them or swap them, then this is the place to go! All you need to do is to book a table for $50 and sell all you can fit on and below the 6ft table. You can set whatever price you wish and all sales and swaps are yours.



If you are a seller wanting to book a table, drop into the arcade or message 1Up Arcade at their [LINK=https://www.facebook.com/1UPArcadeAustraliaFacebook link. [/LINK] But do it now as there are limited spots available for sellers.

At the end of 2017, the company expanded with the introduction of Brisbane's largest selection of pinballs and the opening of their retro console lounge.



In May, it will be the second anniversary of this event and the arcade now has more than 150 original arcade games to play and 31 pinballs!
