Nearly every Saturday that I lived in Syracuse I would
get up early and head out to the Flea market at the
Regain Market complex by old Mac Arthur stadium. It
was open all winter long b/c the buildings were used
year round for agricultural distribution.
My house began to fill up with stuff from that market.
The highlight of each market day was the folks who ran
a table ion the main building. Every week at 9 am they
would empty out boxes of stuff on to there table and
about 20 of us would try and sort the gold from the
garbage.. By twenty after nine most of the good stuff
would be bought and everything left would be sold for
less than a dollar or two.
I actually liked to buy stuff from them after the hoard
of people picked their choice. I think that I found
this book on that table after the collectors had left.
I'm not sure why they didn't take this too. But I wanted
to rescue it from its soon to be home in the dumpster.
Usually by the end of the day contents of this table
end up tin the trash to make way for next weeks over
