I honestly can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t get up early on a Sunday morning and go flea marketing. Some people go to Church. Some people sleep in. Some get the paper and plop down with a cup of coffee and read the news. Some go for a jog. For me, it’s always been walking up and down dusty paths and looking over other people’s things that they are selling. Rows and rows and boxes and boxes. Thousands of strangers. Haggling on prices. People watching. Fried dough and hot dogs and snow cones. Toys and records and music and comic books and movies and … everything. I got my first 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (along with Castlevania) at the Derry Flea Market. I got my friends into buying speakers and speaker boxes and amplifiers for our cars at the Salem Flea Market. I am a product of swap meets and flea markets.
I’m going to delve into my history of Flea Markets and give you a few tips if you haven’t been before and how to conduct yourself. More after the cut:
