Congratulations on reaching ten years, have been a long term user of your site for many years and hope I can continue to do so although I got quite a shock when I ordered an x-surf the other week and I noticed the total amount that I've spent with you over the years on classic and ng stuff :-) :-)

Congratulations to all at Amigakit.

Here's to another 90 years (then the Queen will visit to award her warrant )

Congrats, fantastic achievement. Since getting back into Amiga's i've bought most of my goodies from Amigakit.
It was one of the first places i found via Google after being given an A1200 (was only looking for a replacement mouse) and it opened up a whole new world of possibilities

Well done. Thank you for the history of Amigakit. Very interesting read.

Amazing amount of financial investment you have made. Buying old stock, buying equipment even buying and renovating buildings!

I do hope you can continue to make a profit (break even).

I am curious. Is AmigaKit a full time job for several employees? Or do you guys do part time and have day-jobs?

I have several friends in the retro-gaming shop industry and all their shops are part time plus need to be multi-format to generate enough sales.

@AlexH

No day jobs here, AmigaKit is our full time business- so it is really make or break with every Amiga sale Always exciting to serve the Amiga community, but a challenge to keep it all on an even keel financially.

@RCK

Thank you.

If you even need to source some Toshiba stuff just ask.

Unfortunately our business unit was sold and I can no-longer source the Transdimension USB chips for free/cost (used on Subway) like I used to.

Congrats. You could post some pictures from your storage, at least from the old one.

Congratulations guys! FOL, did you ever dig through or find that stash of CD32 games we talked about at Amiwest a few years ago?
