Yesterday, TBWITWW and I went to the Swap-O-Rama on Ashland. It's a giant flea market and it's freakin sweet. There's a $1.00 admission charge, and probably 200 or so vendors. You can get just about anything it seems... fresh fruit, work clothes, cable service, tools electronics, toys, porn, haircuts... Quality ranges from found-in-a-dumpster-and-wiped-off to brand-new-still-in-box. Although we didn't buy anything on this trip, we definitely got our dollars' worth of people-watching and entertainment.
Parking is... "interesting" and it can be quite crowded, but definitely worth the trip.
