Round two... ding, ding.
I have to admit... I dropped the ball on this series. The plan was to start documenting my not so positive flea market experiences. In other words, review items I was interested in, but ended up passing up for one reason or another.
A few days ago, I wrote about the new flea market I walked around on Saturday and the pretty cool purchases I made. However, I failed to mention that I also went out to my normal venue on Sunday (Capitol Flea Market) and ended up walking away empty handed.
Here are a few of the items that caught my attention.
Hand Painted Barry Bonds Bobble Head $10
I know that there are a lot of people who can't stand Barry, but living in the Bay Area... I'd have no problem finding a home for this bobble. Unfortunately, I wasn't willing to pay over $5.
Pail of Packs $10
Let me clarify. It's a pail of opened packs that contained two or three inserts with some base cards of players like Jeter and A-Rod. But the guy's price was a little to rich for my taste. I didn't bother to counter his offer, because I didn't want to offend him.
Binder of Becketts $30
I love reading back issues of Beckett... especially if they're from the late 80's or early 90's. They're a great way to go back and get in touch with the past. But this vendor was not very realistic. $30 for three Becketts is a little steep. This was another situation where I didn't even bother to counter, but when I put the binder down he told me that he'd take $15. I just waved goodbye and walked away.
Collection of POGs $40
I know what you're about to ask. Why in the world would you want these? Well... I'm not really sure. But if the price was right, I would have grabbed them. As you can see... the price was wrong. Very wrong.
Stacks of Gentlemen's Magazines $???
I have no idea how much the vendor wanted, but I immediately thought to myself... who the heck buys 2nd hand magazines of this nature. Just saying.
Happy Thursday and sayonara!
