#220 at the flea market

220/365 at the fleamarket, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Last Sunday of my summer holiday was spent at a big outdoor flea market. It was the parking lot of a supermarket set aside for this for the morning and afternoon. Seemed like there were more sellers and buyers most of the time, and not a lot of stuff was changing owners. In ten years, the flea market scene has totally changed. I can still remember when people used to be prepared to pay at least something for things they found of value amongst other people’s ‘junk’. These days, however, people almost expect you to pay them for taking it away!

The reverse side of affluence – drowning under too much accumulated clutter. Where is it all going to go?
