Best Flea Market find and a river of sushi.
Did'nt buy it, but it was a good find. I am still trying to unload all of the damn Simpsons figures that I bought in the late 90's that are jamming up my closet. They probably are worth a good amount, most are still in the boxes. Someday maybe I'll get around to selling them. Any geeks out there that want to throw down? Some other gems at the Pasadena Flea Market were an Atari 5200 (yes you read that right), and a signed N'Sync gold record, even signed by Timberlake before he dated that batshit crazy bald bitch.
This market is crazy. People fly there from Japan, London, and other hipster havens to shop for their boutiques. I'm pretty sure half of this shit ends up in Harajuku or London's west side about 2 days after the flea market is over. I can't imagine lugging back a few suitcases of lice infested trucker hats or old tee shirts with 2 decade old beer, jizz, and sweat stains on them. That's a big commitment to achieve the right look. A truly global economy. Of shit.
After the flea market we went to Sushi Afloat. This spot is especially nice because you can just jump right in and chow down. All of the sushi comes around floating past you on little boats in a little river in front of the bar. You eat what you want and they calculate the bill by the color of the plates. So fast and the sushi was legit. Eva hit her head on the sushi bar in a fit of joy. The joy pretty much ended then though. Things are rough in size 4 diapers.
