Went flea marketing on Sunday, at Meiji Park and then Yoyogi Park for the first time.
Business was too good! Hanako and I ended up with more stuff than some vendors brought to sell. I got four dresses, a winter coat, a corduroy jacket, a pink sweater, a skirt, and a necklace. I spent like 2,000 yen. The most expensive was the coat for 1,000 yen (something I actually needed for once) and the cheapest was the necklace for 10 yen.
The Meiji Park market has a great garage-sale range of stuff -- junk, antiques, housewares, clothes -- and a lot of it is super cheap, sometimes free. I basically go there to find stuff I like for a buck. I bought the most amazing maxi dress ever for 500 yen and that seemed an extravagant priceat the time. This market is like a 10 minute walk from Sendagaya Station, 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month I think, morning to 4PM.
The Yoyogi Park market is mostly clothes, and trendier vendors. It's a bit pricier on average but you can still find super cheap prices. If you're just visiting Tokyo I'd definitely recommend this one because it's right in Yoyogi Park and you can eat street food and check out the rockabilly dancers and everything. It's a 5 minute walk from Harajuku Station. Not sure if it's every Sunday or the 1st and 3rd Sunday, morning to 4PM.
I'm too used to flea markets and thrifting. I'm usually wearing like $5 worth of clothes at a time. Bum, bum, bumming. I got these shoes for 100 yen a couple weeks ago.
