Schwabing Flea Market

Today was a day for residents, businesses, and even visitors to sell their goods on the streets of the Schwabing neighborhood. In concept, it’s a wonderful thing. Why throw things away or let them rot in a storage area, when you can “recycle” them by finding new owners. The downside, of course, is that some people keep way too much junk and you end up spending hours looking for hidden treasures. And in the case of this photo, who wants to buy a green bra? It turns out it was part of a neighborhood wide green environmental effort. One thing that was amazing about it, is that it brought thousands of people out onto the streets. I was only passing through on my bike, but Emily at Servus Munchen spent quite a bit time exploring. Check out what she came across.
