I had a great time at the Flea Market today. Arrived about 6:00 a.m. and walked until 2:00. Didn't find any Pentax equipment this year, but I did find a few fountain pens (my other hobby).

Here's a "large format" camera I saw...

I live in a '50s vintage rambler. I've always wanted to re-do the place with stuff like this...

Everyone needs a few of these...

Remember dime Cokes?



Need some Marching Band Hats?



For only $1195.00, you can have a giant cow for your front lawn...



How does this stuff survive for 50+ years?



The original Health food...



All taken with K100D and FA 50mm f/1.4

Some great shots here Rick! Thanks for a walk in the past. I remember the $.10 cokes, and the little clown drum...I think I had one of those. Lol. I'm checking my account to see if I can afford that cow:-)...cheers....Don

What fun! I remember hating the real flash cubes and think I had a similar camera to that (though much smaller!). Funny what turns up at flea markets like that.

Hey Rick, where is that Coke Machine, I want it!! I can be over there in about an hour or so to pick it up.

Large Format Instimatic, I guess it is all relative.

There were a lot of Coke machines and collectables at the market! Oronoco is about 10 miles North of Rochester, Mn on HWY 52

Great stuff.

The sad thing is I remember all that stuff as a kid!

I'm with Dennis. I remember all that stuff, too. I didn't think I was that old! (Not as Dennis, just to know all of it!)

I want to know what the animal next to the cow is. We went to Quebec City this past weekend. Saw many places on the trip up and back that had animals like those in the yards of restaurants, etc. Dinosaurs, cows, etc. I'm hoping the photos came out, but was using my aunt's camera we realized later she had set to "email sized" images. And, they were taken from a moving car!
