A cheap day out

Yesterday I went to a flea market with a couple of friends. They told me they didn't want to buy anything, and I said that didn't matter, I was mostly just planning to take pictures anyway, although I might buy something if I saw something I couldn't resist. They thought that was a good idea, and both turned up with cameras round their necks.

At the end of the day they were both laden down with packages and excuses ("But it was cheap! But it's so beautiful!") and worries ("Where am I going to put these things?").

What I brought home with me takes up a lot less space. In fact it all fits on my hard drive.

I had a cheap day out.

At the Toji Temple (Kyoto) flea market last month - a million people there were - Younger Daughter found a 12" vinyl stall, and saw a large box among the Miles Davis & Sinatra records- the complete Beatles! All the disks & posters...

Had to mail it home of course... weighed a ton... and it cost... let's not think... :-)

Love flea markets. Sometimes...
