Throwback Thursday: At the flea market

Last Sunday, we have had our traditional huge flea market in town. Twice a year it is held in the middle of the town. It starts very early and for the really good snaps you should go very, very early. Get your torch and start at 3 a.m. or at least at 4 a.m.

This time, they have had perfect weather for the flea market: warm and sunny during the day, so many people were in the town. The last times before, they have had back luck with the weather. Bad weather = less visitor = bad sales Thus, I guess, the dealers were happy about their sales this time.

Take care!

  1. 3 a.m. or at least at 4 a.m… what?:). when selling at flea, it started at 7 am. until 7/8 pm. well, having big days!:). Vintage Cameras on picture are Great too! 😉

    1. yup – despite the official start is at 6 a.m. the unofficial start moved further to earlier times each year. That’s because you have to set up your sales booth and the first buyers arrive at the same time equipped with torches to dig through the bags and boxes to search for snaps.
      An, when all sellers are there with their cars to set up the sales stands, you don’t have enough room for parking and getting the goods to the stand. It’s kind of complicated. When cars are not allowed (after 6 a.m.) you need someone at the car, someone at the sales stand and someone for moving the bags and boxes from the car to the stand. And, it’s not much room for unloading.
      In the afternoon it’s the same. But, hopefully you have sold all the stuff 🙂

    1. 🙂
      I’m not so eager anymore. For me, it’s enough to go at about 10 a.m.
      But, I got a Mandoline and a BlueRay disk for my wife and 4 comics for me
