crewe flea market

Crewe, once a busy market town and the hub of the railways network is a rather run-down, shabby sort of a place. It's only redeeming feature now for me is the weekly flea market that runs every wednesday morning from early morning 'til midday. I've bought some bargains there over the years and some rubbish too, like the big "necklace" of CD-ROM's on a piece of wire for a £1 - mostly demos from games magazines, they kept me occupied for months! Today we didnt find much but enjoyed the rummaging and the possibility of finding that treasure for a pittance.
In the end I came away with 3 Chris Barber lps. from the 50's which featured the young Lonnie Donegan before he left and formed his own band.
