Flea market season is in full swing over here in Germany. Dozens are happening every weekend so picking and choosing the right ones isn't as hard....if you hit a dud, just move onto the next one. I try to look around to see what people are buying, but it truly is a random assortment of stuff. Fortunately, it seems I am the only one in Southern Germany that is collecting cards so that is a positive thing that keeps me going out as often as possible. Here are some of the highlights of one of the local markets:
The WWF (no, not the wrestling brand), World Wildlife Fund, teamed up with the local grocery store, Edeka, to issue these 4-sticker packs with a purchase of groceries. As you can imagine, each of the stickers contains an image of an animal, or part of an animal for larger, multi-sticker images. There are 180-stickers in the set and once you tear off the borders of the pack, it reveals 4 stickers that are perforated. A seller at the flea-market had a whole stack of them and was happy to unload them all for 2 Euro.
More to follow next week.
