When I walk to the train station on weekend mornings, I see a little flea market along the walking path. Usually I am not able to stop and look because I am going somewhere. Recently, I was just walking, not going anywhere in particular. I stopped to look and made a couple of purchases. It's an interesting mix of food and vegetables and children's clothing and hand made items and old things and other stuff. I bought ten spools and one card of thread, all for 500 yen. I also purchased 12 men's ties, all for 400 yen!
