From what i've heard you've got to be there pretty early to find anything good before the other sellers cherrypick it all.

I've been many mostly like house hold Antiques and auction type stuff. But I have been to some for pacific others.
Rupe is right - very much the early bird - the problem is price. I've been on both sides selling and buying.

You get people with nothing not wanting to pay - others wanting but you don't want what they have.

Best thing I find is go in early so your search and make sure you know what it is and it's worth. I know googles phones and stuff help but. One must remember the market price is there and then.

Oh for those who are Married, or equivlant - interesting places to go.
JUST don't let you other half go on own. All traders have trick to getting the Girls to suck the Husband into buying crap.

If you're not interested then that's OK. Why you want to stick the knives in is beyond me!
I'm only going for ships and giggles and to visit my mother on the way home.
