Flea Marketing in Mexico City


I have Mexico City on my mind again and I wanted to post some more photos of interesting things that I found in the flea markets there. In general, I was surprised by the high prices. It was more expensive than here in NYC. At first I found this odd, but it starts to make sense when you realize that most people have fewer posessions in Mexico. It seems that they place more value on nice things. Flea markets are very popular there- especially among the native hipsters (not unlike Brooklyn.)

I bought a bunch of nifty things from high (1919 pale green vaseline glass soda siphon/ seltzer bottle,) to low (vintage lucha libre posters.)




Some more photos from around town- including some great marketing…
