Does anyone here, besides me, do a lot of their shopping at flea markets?
 
Like what kind of shopping? Clothes, grocery, furniture?
 
Hell, anything. Flea markets have just about everything, some have a lot of good comic stuff.
 
I go to 'em to get comics, and random stuff like videos.

I actually got an Iron Man comic worth 15 or 20 bucks for $.25.
 
I haven't been to one in awhile. It's something I know will not end well. I have to look at everything and that is time consuming and wears me out. Plus, I maybe the only women alive that hates to shop.
 
So stop looking at everything, I can breeze through a store or flea market in an hour. Just have to look around fast.

You miss a lot of good stuff breezing through so quickly. Plus it's my busy body side that doesn't want to miss a thing.
 
Number 1 does

Where did the term Flea Market come from?
 
Fleas came up with the idea until pesky humans stole it

Not true. My wife loathes shopping. Unless it involves shoes, and then all bets are off. :o

The Wife and I just got home from a flea market. Picked up a lot of stuff.

I'm right there with ya T. I despise shopping at big chain stores...



But when it comes to flea markets, I'm all over them:D I've gotten tons of great stuff from flea markets and yard sales. :up:
 
yea i love flea markets...if nothing else they're just kind of fun
 
No. I do not buy other people's ****! Flea Markets (atleast around my parts) are dingy, dirty, smelly, P.O.S's. Same goes for "garage sales" "yard sales" and "Goodwill" "Salvation Army". To me, that's like digging through a ****ing dumpster. No thank you. What some-what nice things I have were all brand new at one point whenever I purchased them.

Have you never watched Antique Roadshow?

Sadly yes whenever I was at my mom's growing up and nothing else was on. Currently: I do not.
 
I don't know what it is, but some of the flea markets in Illinois have some of the hottest girls behind the counters there.
 
well, you tend to find some interesting stuff in flea markets
rare, out of print vinyl albums
old, vinatage or intereting instruments
if you're in a band, it's an endless source for original stage clothes
voodoo dolls
 
I used to go to the "Merchant's Market" at Warden and Eglinton... but I don't think you can consider that a real flea market.

About once or twice a year I hit the "Farmer's Market" in Stoville...but again, I'm not sure that can be classified as a proper flea market.

I don't think they have proper flea markets around here much anymore. A lot of vendors lease space on a regular basis in the two I mentioned above.
 
Flea market = Swop and shop

At least that is what they are called in the mid-west. When I lived in the south they were called flea markets.
 
flea markets are fun but i always feel like i need a shower after going to them.
