Like the topic says

Hmm. Selling? Probably historical 54mm, SF 28mm, 28mm resin terrain (Hovels, I think) and the usual paper--books, rules and magazines--I should never have bought in the first place.

Buying I'm not so sure. 10mm ACW? 5/6mm armor for the Western Desert? Maybe some stray 1/72 WWII for 1944 France, but the late start is a problem for that one: it's something they might actually sell in the Dealers Hall.

But the glory of the flea market is that it always has something I need that I didn't know I was looking for.

I'll be looking for 28mm ECW painted and unpainted and 15mm Renaissance Muscovites and Cossacks (which I am not holding my breath for)

Ahem, Jeff and mini-Jeff (aka Tree Girl), are you listening?

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP01 Feb 2018 7:12 a.m. PST

See what I mean about stuff not on the list? Chocolate chips, by all means.

I'll be looking for Jacobite Highlanders, but only if they're cheap.
"We're frugal, Laddie. Never call us cheap!"
(Maybe some Gubmint Troops too, because you have to have Bad Guys.)
I had 48 of them for Moore's Creek Bridge (I know, I know), and absolutely need more.

"and I will second the Oatmeal Raisin Cookies"

And I will just sit here drooling in the corner, anticipating the vernal emergence of TreeGirl and her cookies!

TSD10102 Feb 2018 1:40 p.m. PST

Maybe its time to start dumping my FoW, since interest has died out.

DF200902 Feb 2018 6:52 p.m. PST

So, not exactly sure what I'm bringing to sell since I have a basement full of stuff that I had the best intentions of painting and playing but, well you know- you guys are WarGamers too… Will have terrain, Magic cards, GW bits,bits, and more bits. Odd and ends Figs from various games,time periods, and systems. Oh yeah- still have 1 or 2 copies of Risk left! (wasn't a big hit at last show.)
Looking for ships for X-wing game, older RPG books and GW Figs from their side games like Mordheim, NecroMunda, and SpaceHulk. Always willing to do trades also.

Cheers, -D.Fischer II-

Always looking for terrain 15-28-40mm, getting interested in Franco-Prussian, Austrian-Prussian in 15 mm. and lastly looking for Spanish-American War figures in 28 mm……

Are there rules against selling beer in the flea market?

zoneofcontrol05 Feb 2018 6:12 a.m. PST

"Are there rules against selling beer in the flea market?"

Only if you get caught. Especially if you get caught by HMGS, Inc., the hotel, the police, the State Police, the PLCB (PA Liquor Control Board).

You could always try:
"Hey you… buddy; you want to buy some paint? I've got these special 12 oz., pop-top cans of "paint" under my table. They could be yours for the right price."

Nah, not paint-- paint _stripper_.
Beer is better as a BYOB thing to enjoy and share with yer mates.

snurl106 Feb 2018 6:19 a.m. PST

Dash it all. Another get rich quick scheme foiled again.

DF200907 Feb 2018 12:52 p.m. PST

I by NO means was suggesting anyone SELL beer anywhere at the Con. I was hinting that someone BUY a beer (from the Host) for a hard working staff member… Ya know, maybe that Handsome, polite guy that may be running Wally's Basement who is always helpful and caring… just sayin'…
