Today we checked out our local flea market for the first time ever. It’s about 30 minutes away, so not necessarily convenient to get to, which is probably why we’ve never been. Anyways, as we walked around we found a few vendors with small buckets of loose cars and one guy who with some more recent (read last 3 or 4 years) carded stuff, and I found a few things.
But I had heard from a collector I talked to in Walmart a while back that there was one guy out there who had tons of stuff, old and new, including a lot of Treasure Hunts and special release / limited edition stuff. After going through three halls, I finally found heaven. It was called Doug’s Diecast Dugout. The man had a permanent setup with four stalls. I was so excited to start looking that I forgot to take pics! I only had a small amount of cash on me in order to keep from spending too much this trip, but I did bring home the two older Matchbox you’ll see in the pics below. I talked with Doug for a few minutes and found he bought and traded stuff from customers, so I will be taking a few things along with me the next time I go up there.
Anyways, on to the pics!
