Iv'e only ever seen vintage in the wild twice in my life, both times they were traders in very small indoor markets where other people were selling expensive trinkets and nice antiques, and only in nice middle/upper class areas where people are known to be quite loaded, I was of course just passing through. :lol:

Not once have I ever seen a single vintage Star Wars item in any shop or market in any working / lower class area, never in 20+ years, I suspect maybe dealers know sales would be poor or non-existent unless they trade in a better area where people have more money to spend on high vintage prices.
You don't own your toys, you only borrow them until you sell them or die!

Well antique and charity shops checked. Nothing today apart from plenty of traffic. Never mind, if you dont look then you havent a chance no matter how slim the pickings maybe. :D
