Flea Market Fun

Mannheim is known for its Flea market and yesterday was the 40th Anniversary. Of course I didn't know that when I got there.
I have been there before and I arrived at 6:30 am and that was plenty of time to get my car on the lot to unload. Not this time Oh nooo!!!
I got there and there were about 500 people there first.
So it took some maneuvering on my part but I got the car there.
We unloaded everything and got our table set up and got ready to sell some old crap and make some money.
My Neighbor Ardita was with me thank goodness seeing as I can sell anything but I cannot haggle. She can and let me tell you she haggled the hell out of some people. 

Seeing as it was the anniversary there was a band that was so crappy that we were willing to pay them just so they would shut the hell up. 
We got really lucky with the weather, a little too lucky if you ask me I was sooo burnt by the time we got ready to go at 3:30. I even burned my ears. 
We had a pretty good spot right behind the beer tent.....
I had to drive but Ardita didn't and four Beers later she was singing even more and selling stuff like there was no tomorrow.
    It got Stupid!!!!

 All in all we had a good day with lots of laughs and a decent amount of money was made.
We ate, drank and paid the lot rent and still left with 105 Euros.

I think that maybe I will do it again we met a lot of nice people and made a little money, so it was a good time.
