Flea Market and Estate Sale in the State of "Georgie".

Hi, John L. Smith here, 89 years old and I never thought I would be here...I mean on the internet:-)

Most of my life I worked as a Machinist and Flea Marketing Guru. At times, I refer to myself as "The Junk Man" because over the years that's what I have accumulated. I think, as we get older most of the junk we thought was so important quickly becomes useless junk.

My inspiration has been to survive by serving my fellow man. I done that mainly through buying and selling.

Prices are often over inflated. In my business, I offset them and buying and selling has made a very generous living for me and my family.

Now, I am preparing to sell-out. Don't blink or you might miss out. After 50 plus years of Flea Marketing, I've got about three of everything.

My favorite hat reads,

If I knew then
what I know Now, I would have
done then what
I can't do now.

My favorite sign reads:

I HUNT IT
I FIND IT...
I BUY IT...
LOAD IT...
I HAUL IT...
I UNLOAD IT...
I WASH IT...
I SCRUB IT...
I PAINT IT...
I FIX IT...
I PRICE IT...
I DISPLAY IT...
I PAY TAXES...
PAY RENT...
NOW HOW CAN YOU ASK ME TO TAKE ANY LESS FOR IT!

This is what I do with people having trouble believing that. I started with Donna Rochelle, my daughter.

Meet my friend, for over 50 years, Kenneth E. Dobson. He died, went to heaven and is back here to talk about it.
