Even the Fleas Said No Thanks
Stormville Flea Market on Labor Day Weekend...meh
The big local flea market opened its fields again for several one day events this month and I decided to give it a try this past Saturday. Masks were "required" but there was no enforcement so I didn't stay long.
I found these three at one place and let the guy talk himself down from $3 to $2 for the lot. I'm not going to argue. Lesney-Matchbox #35 Snow Trac with the raised lettering instead of decals. Just need to locate a set of treads. A fairly rare Zylmex/Zyl/Zee Porsche 959, and an Ertl Boss Hogg's Cadillac. After being amazed at what Dukes of Hazzard diecast goes for on the bay, I'll be starting a new box just for those.
The whole event was kind of a warning of what future events are going to be like as more people stop giving a crap about masks and distancing. I knew where I was going and what I was most likely going to encounter, and I was not that surprised. The best two?
One of the flea mongers: "I broke my nose once so masks just don't fit me."
First Prize to loud woman in aisle two: "Yeah? Well I have brain cancer, so what's the point?"
Oh, the humanity...
