    Obi Jace and I spent tuesday morning in cathedral square, hunting for bargains and haggling with children at the annual Kidsfest Kidsmarket. Heaps of toy stalls, and we grabbed a heap of bargains including Transformers, Masters of the Universe, and a few star wars bits and pieces, cards, KFC toys, and Jace even got himself a styley SW backpack. no action figures though, they must still be popular. either that or someone got there before us!

    It's a pity they only have Kidsfest once a year.
    are there any other markets like this elsewhere?
    there are heaps of sunday markets here, but none
    where you can find heaps of toys!!!

    None that I know of. Garage sales can be good as well but you have to get up real early and scope places out before hand.

    It helps having a dad that goes round the garage sales due to his buisness. Picked me up some nice stuff.

    In a garage sale MANY years ago, I managed to get a perfect B-wing and a slightly damaged Snowspeeder (the ones that fit the 3 3/4" figures) for only about $20 - there was something else too, but I can't remember what it was.

    There also used to be a used toy shop nearby where I managed to find some Star Wars figures in a big bowl full of different figures (I even managed to find their accessories) - they were only about 5oc each.

    Too hard to get too much of a bargin out of kids today, they seem to have knowledge of near market prices, and its pretty damn hard to steal candy off them as well! :p
