Wolfratshausen – 160 stands recently attracted numerous bargain hunters to all parts of the city.
After two hot days, Eva-Maria Rühling, chairwoman of the neighborhood help association "Citizens for Citizens", came to a positive conclusion.
"It was a constant coming and going: it took me forever to get home because I met so many nice people and acquaintances," reported Rühling.
Regina Kayn, who set up a few stands with a few neighbors in the narrow street Auf der Haid, had a similarly positive impression.
"We had a lot of visitors even before the official start at 2 p.m.," she said happily.
The rare film posters that Alfred Drescher offered for sale were particularly eye-catching.
Fans of Gerhard Polt, Karl Valentin or Hans Albers had to pay around 40 euros for it.
On a negotiation basis, of course: "I also want to haggle, otherwise it's no fun," explained the 66-year-old.
The former head of a technical copying plant in Munich has collected many treasures over the years, such as old projectors.
Stands easily accessible on foot with a buggy
Especially in Weidach, since some streets are a little off the beaten path from through traffic, self-made signs or chalk drawings on the streets often pointed to the sales outlets.
This helped Benjamin Forster in finding children's clothes and toys for his one-year-old son.
"The garden flea market is a nice idea, especially since I can easily walk to many of the stands with a buggy," the young father praised the organizers.
While there was a high density of sales outlets in the districts of Weidach and Nantwein, the field thinned out in the direction of the old town.
The couple Verena and Felix Kratzmaier offered children's clothing, sunglasses, jewelery and DVDs in the courtyard of their house.
"We've accumulated a lot over the years: a campaign like this helps a lot to get rid of the superfluous," said Felix Kratzmaier.
