I love em. Go to one every week. Today I got a slightly rusted Delta 4" belt 6" disc sander for 25 bucks. Through the years I picked up lots of good stuff including the first 25 volumes of WB bound for 5 bucks. I even got a few ship model kits some poor soul didn't attempt to start. I did manage to build and finish them.

Anybody else have good experience's at Flea markets ?

deep fried dill pickles. Eeeewww. That sounds really bad.

I love flea markets, but we don't have any decent ones here.

Flea Markets, Auctions, garage sales, I'm guaranteed to come home with something. In fact this year I'm gonna have one of my own. :eek: :D

SWMBO and I are huge fans of thrift stores, yard sales & swapmeets.In fact we just got home from the weekly swap meet in Oceanside. She got a snappy jacket for a buck and we bought some produce.
You never know what treasures you may find. I got her a Douney and Bourke leather briefcase that retails for about $300, at the salvation army thrift store for $4. Best find I've seen was my brother scoring a perfect condition, pure cashmere overcoat for $5.

Half the furniture in our house and half the tools in the shop came second hand.

A couple weeks ago we decided to have a yard sale to get rid of some stuff instead of donating it to the thrift stores like we usually do. We advertised in the local pennysaver rag for about $30 and there were people waiting for us to get set up before 7:00 am. In the first hour we made $200 and by the time we wrapped things up we had cleared $500!

Thrifty aye! ;)

Give me a reason to change my mind. Simple. Name one thing that doesn't taste better, battered and deepfried.

Sometimes the bull doesn't loose. Besides, me and deep fryers don't get along, just ask mom and dad's insurance company. :rolleyes:

Katherine, you take hamburger dill chips and pat them dry, then batter them with a flour and cornmeal mix and then deep fry them, just like frenchfries or onion rings. They are usually served with a horseradish sauce, or honey mustard or even ranch or blue cheese dressing.

P.I. Stazzer-Newt, I'm not sure how to accept culinary criticism from somebody from the British Isles. :D

They concentrate too much of the crap they feed animals these days.

Read my previous post about me and deep fryers. Just because you can't cook doesn't mean you don't eat. I can't make baklava like my Greek neighbor, but that doesn't stop me from eating the hell out of it when I can find it.

My arteries are clogging at the thought. As for eating others cooking, one of the guys I work with makes Tiramisu to die for, but you have to watch out. It's like a 100 proof. tongue.gif

And baklava sounds really good right now. :D

Local organic grocer here (PCC) has an absurd pastry case. First time I saw rolled baklava with choclate on it. smile.gif

Who's criticising?

I know a Chippie in the North East who will Batter and Deep-Fry "Anything Legal".
Haggis - Yup (quite good eating)
Black Pudding Yup (very good)
Mars Bar - Timing is everything - Good with Ice Cream.

But For the cognoscenti - The Curly Wurly

That sounds soooo good Meer. Cheesecakes are my specialty. There is a difference between can't cook and don't cook. :rolleyes:
