Basel Flohmarkt

Short notice, well aware of it but this Saturday ( and any Saturday ) there is a flea market in Basel.

Just fun to meet up, have a chat, walk around, browse and have a bite/ drink

I was told the wurst weggen (sausage rolls) are a winner

If you are up for it, let me know.

We will meet outside of the Basel SBB Bahnhof at 11.30 am..any suggestions where?


RSVP'd Yes: 6 (6 members and No guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 3 (3 members and No guests)
  • Begga - 11:30 sounds much better
  • Red64 - Since I have to go past Petersplatz to get to the SBB Might just see you there!
  • rjhbirm
RSVP'd No: 1
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Great idea Joey82!

Will be fun looking around and hopefully finding some great bargains to boot.

Looking forward to hearing about how it went.

Re: Flohmarkt (Flea market) Basel

The times I've been (2 or 3!) there seemed to be a bit of everything!

Lots of records, old electrical items (old cameras, mobile phones, kitchen items, record players/hifis etc etc), kitchenware, clothes, shoes, jewellery... oh, and some 'lovely' pictures

Also furniture, bikes, and a bit in the middle where kids can sell things for free I think...

There was even a 'gratis' pile of things last time i went... but I don't think they were going anywhere

What's that phrase now... one person's junk is another person's treasure.

Just curious, i know i can find out for myself tomorrow, but what types of things are sold here? At any other flea market i have been to (which is less than a handful) it is usually horrible old smelly stuff.

Maybe you can find a neat old raclette grill and use that for baking instead of an EZBake? (I've been wondering if they'd work for that?)

Although from what I recall of how the EZBakes are / were decorated, you'd probably be hard pressed to find a raclette grill as "pretty".

I will laugh hard if they do (and also will not be shocked).


As I finished my prep for tomorrow tonight, I believe I'll be there in the morning.

I'll check here before I leave to see if anyone is stuck and needs company while they're lost - I can't promise to help find the way but hey, we'll have fun being lost.

I will need to nip home to pick up my tarts though before heading for BBQ.

Really really looking forward to being out n about this weekend.

Re: Flohmarkt (Flea market) Basel

Hey guys,

where did all of you disappear? We were looking for you around 1:00 PM because we wanted to leave. Our daughter was getting cranky because it was getting closer to her nap time and we had to bail on cmirsky's BBQ event to get home.

It was great to see some new faces and we look forward to meeting you guys at the next event and spend much more time.

Hey Stig, Nice to meet you and your family.

I'm not sure how we got split up, you went for the silver, we went for the old school phones and computer gear

Indeed a shame we lost you down the the line, none the less great to finaly meet the person behind the helmlet

See you next week at Kfc?

Re: Flohmarkt (Flea market) Basel

Good mroning All,

Just found my way back home from what was a great day and night in Basel.

Thanks again for all who showed up to visit the Flea market.

For future interested people, imagine back to the 80's style, you walk by things that you say " woooow i grew up with that "

None the less an interesting event , a "must have " for people that live near Basel and like it Old School.. where else you can you find a copy of Fligh Simulator 98 with a non working joystick, classic !

Most disturbing things we found were the dentist tools.. i am not kidding you, the hooks, mirror thingie..all of it for sale on the market.

Nostalgia amongst many other words spring to mind

Anyway it was lovely to meet you all and i hope we will see eachother on other events soon.

Thanks again all of you,

Joey
