Haven't really done any searching lately. Found a handful of books at the flea a couple weeks ago. Not feeling it, I guess.

Oakdale Flea Market... try out there. I went to the last two and was impressed in comparison to the LIRR Flea Market.

The next one is June 23 and is sponsored by the Antique Store in the same parking lot.

I went to the one on May 19th to take a look as the Bellmore Flea Market(s) are just no longer my thing. This was a legitimate old school, open air thing that had that New England or Pennsylvania vibe with items ranging from vintage toys, comics and legitimate antiques such as signage to nautical equipment, Marx and Schylling Wind Ups, and antique games from the 30's. I almost bought a vintage ball bearing machine for my basement. Then there is the usual vintage records, magazine and things you would normally see as well as coins.

There is a vintage toy store in the lot but that is lackluster in comparison to the antique store and Time Warp toys in Lake Grove. After the Flea Market, head out to Time Warp Toys which is 9 miles away and the Antique Store in the same lot. THAT Vintage Toy store is impressive.

I dragged a friend with me last weekend and he wound up buying a vintage GI Joe Airplane and several figures.

I wound up picking up a hard to find Lego Baseplate for $10 that normally commands $40-50 + shipping on eBay if you can even find it and a couple of 70's Matchbox cars.  Prices vary on the vendor as some believe that certain loose vintage SW figures should command MOC prices but that is an issue everywhere outside of dedicated groups.  

However, it was worth a trip.  

I am also winding down though.  The only thing I have bought all year are my twice a month Spider-man books and one page of art that I picked up on a whim.  This summer I will start thinning the herd. 
I will have to make the drive out sometime, thanks!

Pachinko is sufficiently weird; I'll allow it.

the hell is a ball bearing machine?
I could not find the proper name for it until now.  It is apparently called a Pachinko Game.  This is a picture from a 1960's one I believe.
