Burlington Flea Market

While there weren’t the crowds we used to see a decade ago, the Burlington Flea Market yesterday for me was excellent as I sold all but one Vibroplex bug.


The rest of the guys staffing the Oakville Amateur Radio Club table had much the same results as we sold tons of stuff in the first hour and then the buyers left and the tourists arrived 🙂

By 10 am I was ready to go with a pocket full of cash and a lot less equipment piled up around the station.

It didn’t hurt that I’d advertised most of the stuff on the Ontario Swap Shop site and several pieces of equipment went even before I arrived at the flea market.

Now I’ve got to think about my next Ham Radio project before I head off to Dayton.

  1. Yes there were quite a few tourists who were able to get out of the house for fresh air and touch every item on your table.
