PostSubject: Visit the flea market    Mon Apr 24, 2017 9:55 pm

Last Saturday the weather was fine for a visit at the flea market here in Munich.
It is one of the largest flea markets with over 2000 sellers.
Unfortunately every year there are more and more professional sellers.
But, you can still find many treasures here for your collection depending on what you are looking for.

Here is a small overview of the general stuff you find here everywhere.

arrow Ok, now to the "most important" stuff.

Prices for animal figures are very different.  From absolutely "crazy expensive" to only a few Cents.
You will find many Schleich figures. But I have only buy some of them because I have these figures by Schleich or Bullyland already in my
collection or sometimes the seller wants to have too much money. Normally the prices for Schleich figures are between some Cents and five Euro.

I like these boxes full of surprises. Many stuff, many cheap and ugly "Made in China" figures. But also often some fine figures.
Here I have found a very fine dinosaur.......

... by STARLUX! The price of 50 Cent was all right too.  Smile

Your walk through the flea market It was very successful,

I think that when you returning to your home there is no stress.

Wonderful animals, especially: invicta dinosaur Applause , mammoth safari and the playvisions.

And I think ,you saved Lineol and elastolin figures. sunny sunny

I have to second that last sentence of Fernando. You really save some composition old models. Incredible how they store them sometimes. A first generation Lineol is a huge treasure. I also love these Invicta dinosaurs. The lion is a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ... traditionally we do really assign these figures to Nayab. A starlux iguanodon, even without tongue, is a fantastic find too. tongue

Oh man! I wish US flea markets were like that! But then again I'd probably have a heart attack at sight. Here most of the flea markets I've been to sell vintage items, "redone" vintage items (reupholstered furniture or newly painted lamps etc.), typical garage sale trash, and very rarely anything remotely toy like. What a great haul of animal models, big congrats!

You surely found gold there affraid

Me-oh-my !!!
That Safari mammoth !!! Invicta !! PlayVision ! Icelandic horse Schleich ! and even a Starlux Applause
The old composition models alone were worth the early morning, - and the Bullyland cow is even with tag still cheers

The black poodle is very interesting, - I have this model in balc and one in white, but they don't have the red tongue..they don't even look as if they had it scratch

I know you don't get it easily, - getting up before the sun to be there before all others and while everything interesting is still there sunny
- the early bird gets the worm  Laughing

Thankyou for sharing these wonderful treasures, and for telling about this magnificent market !!! drunken

Just what I thought when reading this topic! Ha! Very Happy I don't think I'll have that much luck though.
By the way, my son will try to sell some of his toy animals tomorrow too XD

Wonderful flea market!The ones here in the UK are similar to the USA ones-lots of trash and so called retro stuff.There are a few sellers of models-mostly fantasy-but they sometimes have animals as well but not as many as you have!I remember going to one many years ago in Vienna and seeing many Elastolin/composite models but never bought any the time Sad Sad Sad

So many interesting finds, and the atmosphere must by amazing. Congratulations!
Been on some flea markets in the past, but there was no animal model, mostly dolls, cars and toys from Kinder eggs.

You are right, I am very glad to have found these old figures.
Especially the dog. He is about 110 years old and he is really very rare. For the seller he was only old stuff to get rid of for very little money.

For that I would not leave the beautiful Norway.drunken
But, if I think more about it, for me certainly it´s an advantage if you would move to Munich:
We could visit the flea markets together.Cool
If you still hesitate: There are different kinds of flea markets every Saturday.
For example in the middle of May is again the large children's flea market in town. Only used items for children can be sold there. Ok, only the weather here is often the problem.

You are right Susanne, I have also these poodles, but with "painting tongues".

Oh, that´s very interesting, perhaps you have seen there also some composition figures by company Emil Pfeiffer.

You are right, that was really a big jungle full of stuff, people, a lot of large and small ways between.
I was also glad, that my husband has accompanied me and he has also found some very interesting offers for me.
