While I have yet to stumble upon any 50-family yard sales, I did find the Melrose Trading Post which sports in excess of 200 vendors and takes place every weekend. Here's a photographic tour of some of the stuff we saw for sale at it this past weekend.

Enjoy!

No you don't. They were trying to sell it for 15 bux which is more than it cost in the original packaging when I bought one. Not to mention it was missing several pieces.

Nah there were plenty of good prices on stuff. For example: two NES games for 5 bux is better than what most EB Games places charge. It really just depends on what you're looking for. I mainly go to these things with nothing in mind other than hoping I get to see some completely random, amusing stuff. Other people go to yard sales and flea markets hoping they'll find the mother of all deals. The kind of deals they'll tell their grandchildren about one day...

"I remember when I went to this one flea market, and buried underneath some dusty old quilts, there it was... a pile of GOLD on sale for only 10 cents! It was the best day of my life!"

Dude, we have a free one monthly. It's bitchin. We found some signed Elvis stuff, WWII things, and tons of other awesome crap. And it's free! Pay flea markets are bullshit. Seriously, free ones are where it's at.
