    Default Strange thing at the Flea today...

    Perkar and I hit up a couple of flea's with no finds, but one guy did have a strange item.

    It was in an original Playstation shell, but the open/power buttons and the lid had different decals. It was a 60-in-one game machine with Atari-like controller inputs and it had all NES games. Anyone know what the crap it is?

    The guy was asking $45 so no way did I pick it up, or I'd give pics.

    It looked like this:

    Hrm, I didn't open the lid to see what was in there, but I don't think there was a cart slot or anything. I think it was just a 60 games in one.

    You don't happen to live in or near N.J./N.Y. do you....?

    Because I saw the same thing being sold by a vendor at my local big Flea market this Saturday..
    I know this vendor... he always has high prices..he also wanted $45.00 for it..
    I looked at him like he was crazy when he told a kid $45.00..

    Where is the NJ Flea Market you guys are talking about? Meadowlands? I'd like to go and check out where you guys are going.

    I go to the Meadowlands flea market..it's decent...
    Sometimes I find great stuff,then sometimes I'll only find one item worth buying ..like last week.
    Some vendors have outrageous(Ebay) prices then some vendors are cheap..

    They are so scared to death of the rain there that a lot of vendors don't show up if it looks the slightest bit of rainy weather.
    Sure I'd rather buy dry stuff..but when it rains the stuff gets wet.
    And..
    When it rains the customers run like the world was ending too..in real chaos.
    Like they never got wet...You can see just how many people don't take baths..

    The bigger Market I go to is in Englishtown New Jersey.

    nah, we live in Michigan, north of detroit. we shoulda asked that guy where he got that thing... the flea really didn't turn up a whole lot, only a few vendors with games, and most were overpriced NES carts.

    I stopped going to that for the purpose of games a while ago. Everything was too few and far between, and if you saw anything, it was either overpriced, or damn near totaled. Anyone know of any northern NJ fleas? Englishtown is too far away for me to casually go, and most popup fleas (school fleas) completely, and utterly suck here.
