In the days before EBAY

In my youth, the drive in movie theatres typically hosted giant flea markets on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. I guess it was a way for the theater operators to increase revenue. These film shorts were common viewing before the movie got started. I guess this is what people did with their old junk before eBay came around! Note the announcer's statement about "anyone with a garage or closet full of goodies can be a weekend money maker."

The more things change, the more they stay the same!
