Buyers Flea Market Fun 1!
Took another Christmas shopping trip to The Buyers Flea Market at 4545 W Division (that I used to call, in my unPC ignorance, The Mexican Flea Market, because I was usually the only pale Irish fellow there), for the best in ornately bespangled wonderfully gaudy attire, t-shirts of Benjamin Franklin smoking' weed, 8 lb sparkly belt buckles in the shapes of skulls, guns or Our Lady of Guadalupe and stacks of bootleg "Superhero" toys where unlicensed, not quite right, Batman, Spiderman and Mr. Incredible figures are sold packaged together.
First off, a tip of the hat to the backfield in motion mannequins that you'll never enjoy at Target or Walmart...
