@Max, last MIT Flea for 2014 is October 19. I'm planning to go and yes, take more pics. Hopefully a few buddies are going too.

There are at least two CA Flea markets that are also worth mentioning.

For Silicon Valley there was the Foothill College Flea Market anchored by the then Electronics Museum located on the same campus.  Due to circumstances forcing the Museum off the campus (a long story in itself) the event moved through a few locals to now reside at DeAnza College.   The web bage is: http://www.electronicsfleamarket.com

The other BIG event that I'm familiar with (also an institution) is the TRW Swap Meet. The web page for that is http://www.w6trw.com/swapmeet/ and is sponsored by the W6TRW club.

Candy Store for Techies

This MIT flea market looks like a candy store for techies. I hope that the local kids who are learning and developing electronics know about it (and wish it had existed when I was a kid building circuits in Boston a long time ago).

@Bill: Now the best thing to look for when at flea markets are power supplies, and also electromechanical components such as connectors, or motors for robotics.

At the Huntsville one last year, there were tables laden down with antique meters and vacuum tubes and ... all sorts of treasures and delights -- Click Here to see my blog with some photos
