sure.. majority of stuff there wouldn't move on eBay. The stuff that will
is over there. 1/3 of the stalls are generic flea-market stuff. This
flea, like all the others, has been castrated by eBay. It's mostly just a
social event now.

The REAL old-timers still call it Foothill,
which is in Los Altos Hills, not Cupertino.
It has only been on the DeAnza campus for a
couple of years.
