Scene & Heard: 61st Street and San Pablo: Hidden Treasures
on October 16, 2009
At first glance, it looks like junkyard, but on the corner of 61st and San Pablo sits a unique jumble of treasures. When I first arrived a baby carriage caught my eye. The place has variety; from children’s toys and dishes to rims and furniture. But, unfortunately, when it rains, it pours at the San Pablo Flea Market, and much of the merchandise was wet from the weather. But it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth the digging, as long as you don’t mind getting your hands dirty-or wet.
