I'm simply visiting local flea markets and garage sales, there are dozens each weekend all over Belgium.

- I've seen super8 before 1 or 2 times but nothing interesting like today.

- VHS you see quite a lot but ex-rental of anything remotely interesting is uncommon

- VideoCD is also uncommon and when you find them it's always the same movies like Top Gun . These are usually sellers that also have "games" for the amazing Philips CD-i (which I also collect since many of them are FMV garbage with bad acting) Most of my VCD collection is in this picture (quite pathetic :))

- I've never seen Betamax movies (couple of times I did see a player)

- I've never seen Laserdisc player or movies

- DVD: lot's of them but nothing even remotely interesting. I don't even bother looking at most boxes anymore

not every flea market here in holland is free, so i kinda stopped going to them since i never find anything of interest.
Definately never seen super 8 or laserdiscs and cant recall video cds either. I think most people still sell that through the likes of marktplaats or ebay.

I would say your time at flea markets has been pretty rewarding and makes me think twice about it. Maybe i should go visit them again :)

too bad it was raining. i would just let the covers dry in other words take them out of the box and let them dry.. then maybe place a load of books or tapes or whatevers heavy enough on them to take out the wrinkels.

I am amazed by all the great stuff still out there  :o

Around here it is dead!  "oops!:

You people already bought everything!

I also hardly find anything in Amsterdam. Best finds are here in Belgium in little towns close to where I live in the middle of nowhere :)

Also funny was the Ninja movie, it was in a box of cartoons being sold by a little girl. I asked her mother if she had more stuff like that but she just seemed to be under the impression it was a kids movie :wacko:

I watched tons of Ninja movies when i was a kid ;) :P

Nightmare City on Sunrise on a flea market would be enough for me to call it a great day ;)

Nope, no separate audio

Another hilarious find. 2 self recorded tapes came with the player. One of them has a recording of Veronica Pinup Club with Ninjas! And they are getting naked ! :D
