    Lets share the information of vintage electronic markets for any member who is visiting a different country or for travelers. I visited Hong Kong 3 years ago and found a great market for vintage electronics

    HONG KONG: Apliu Street Flea Market
    is located at Apliu Street, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon. This market is famous for vintage watches/ cameras/ boomboxes, radios .... so dont miss this market if you are visiting Hong Kong

    There's a flea market in Sant Cugat (very near Barcelona, Spain), called Mercantic, which is the sum of Mer (from Mercat, market) + Antic (Old, in catalonian language). It can be seen only the first sunday of every month and it's like a small vintage village, with many streets full of vintage stuff. From chairs and furniture to toys and old tech.
    There are a lot of vintage shopt. Here's a list of many of them. There's also a vinyl shop there where I bought some albums. They shop is very nice and the guy too.
    I'll post some photos later.

    Here's a video of the market that it's indeed worth to watch too:



    I've been there twice and I have to come back for sure :)

    Thousand oaks, California: Record Surplus: If you are looking for cheap used electronics and bargain records and cassettes this is the place you should visit. You can find integrated amp for 20 dollars or 99 cents used records. There are always free cassettes and CDs placed at the entrance. Sometimes you can find unopened items if you go there at the right time.

    I will be visiting Hong Kong and china next month. Apliu Street Flea Market in Hong Kong will be my first destination to visit. I will take some pictures to share with you. I was wondering if anybody knows any vintage electronic market in Shenzhen and Guangzhou.

    Everything in the photo with the Weltron looks absolutely immaculate.
    I expect the prices reflect that though.

    p.s The Flea markets album link doesn't seem to be working for me.

    The electronics district in Shenzhen is Huaqiangbei, starting around Huaqiang Lu Station on metro line 1. I've never had much luck finding interesting vintage items there, but it's great for parts and components.

    Aside from the street stalls in Sham Shui Po there are some pretty good vintage hifi shops on the surrounding streets. Monkok has several as well. These are mostly selling home hifi components though, and tape in general is pretty dead in HK. I found a total of maybe 3 decks for sale around Sham Shui Po, and two shops still selling sealed cassettes, but they were not cheap. There is a stall that has a bunch of Walkmans and Type I tapes as well.

    If anyone is ever in the Milan area, there are 2 markets of interest.
    Hobby Park which is the one i go to every week, it is very shady looking and without any doubt I am certain that 99% of all car stereos sold there are stolen.
    I went with a college friend of mine and we got him a working microwave for 25 euros :D.
    You can find alot of greatness at affordable prices (affordable to a college student).
    Hobbypark.it
    Some pictures i took:
    20180114_120134_001.jpg
    20180114_120901.jpg

    The other place would be eastmarket. I don't go there as often, it feels more or less like a clone of @walkman archive's mercantic.
    The prices are too hisper for my liking. I have yet to find anything of interest other then pre-recorded cassettes.
