    Fishead: Do you shop at Flea Markets?

    Went to a flea market for the first time in years. Picked up a great deal on Gillette Fusion razor blades. Store price here is $31.99 + tax.

    Flea market price from chinese people $15.00

    Great price and I will be back!

    Just compared them to the ones I bought at drugstore and they are identical. Even if they do not work as well, I will just use them to shave my balls.

    They aren't fake; could be hot though.

    Also picked up a nice deal on a lot of 1971 Topps Baseball.

    I would take stolen for the max. They had large quantities of razors for sale. But I will be back in a few months to buy more!

    90% of people at flea markets are made up of gamblers, drunks, homeless people and poor people and a few angle shooters.

    I love flea markets but yard sales are better. I find people moving who dont want to pack up all that shit & get it at a deal & make killer $$$

    Fishhead is so sharp when he visits the flea market, he doesn't give money to them, they give money to him.

    nothing and i mean.. NOTHING... beats Garage Sales. i can't wait for summer just for that. every sat and sun morning, the gf and i get ready to do the rounds. there's usually like 5 to 7 of them on sat and another 5 to 7 more on sun. we go early like 9 am.. always first ones there and my god, you have no idea what you can find. you can get rare CD's from 1972 like Led Zeppelin and bunch of other stuff for like 20 cents each.. many times i have found a guy with 15 boxes of mint hockey cards in there with lemieux rookie card in there, etc.. i paid like 6$ for everything cause he wanted to get rid of it. it's down in the storage room, but if i go through all 75,000 cards, i will probably find about 7,500$ worth. he had no idea. these people just want to clean up their house.

    you can find tons of collectibles and stuff at garage sales. but go early.

    I rarely find jack squat at garage sales. But no lie, sometimes you can find something decent. Pick up a sweet petrol powered RC car once for $50.
