CEX: No retro anymore?

I used to pop into the Rathbone Place CEX in the late nineties.  I remember drooling over rare stuff in the glass cabinet in the  basement.   The only things I can actually remember are an Altair 8800 and Hello Kitty Dreamcast, but I’m sure there was other cool stuff.

Rathbone Place was a bit of a pilgrimage for me in the nineties and early 2000s (and from there Tottenham Court Road). I got my US copies of Pokemon Gold and Silver from there back then. It's a huge shame those kind of shops are pretty much gone now.

Found an old CEX receipt in one of my Dreamcast games...that Birmingham store was amazing back in the day.

Here are a few of mine - we must have frequented the place at same time!

They had a Vectrex down in the basement. It was the first one that I had seen since they first came out.
