Bring & Buy


What is the Bring and Buy?

The Bring and Buy is a second hand market for your old games. You can bring your old games and we will sell them for you, for cash. You pay a small registration fee for each item and 10% of the sale cost that goes to charity. You receive back the other 90% at the show.

Our Bring and Buy is the largest hobby games Bring and Buy at any UK games convention and we believe in the world.

Changes to the Bring & Buy for UKGE 2024.

  • Maximum registration of items for the show is 20 ( You cannot register more than 20 items for sale and if you are caught using multiple accounts all your items will be withdrawn from sale and any proceeds for sales donated to charity)
  • Price changes are prohibited. Once you have printed the label and stuck it on the box that is the price. Speculative pricing early show and then constantly asking for changes will not work and the software will no longer allow it. So price to sell.
  • Minimum price for an item is £5. Although sub £5 items do sell, they are difficult to handle and unsold stock is just left for UKGE to dispose of rather than collected.
