2nd hand sales at Dewan Suarah Miri

Every Sunday at Dewan Suarah Miri, also public library, at its compound, there are people selling second hand stuff. Too bad they will do it until the end of August. Their reason ending it because some of them refused to pay for the rental. It cost them RM 10 for only 1 day. It is quite costly for them. If you like to see some antiques which are not quite antique, welcome to stop by at their site tomorrow.

They even take effort to make it pleasant to eyes. They don't look like pirate CD to me.

This is African plant if not mistaken. It is good for health.

Someone's bag with Sin Chan's sticker is on sale. This must be full of memory. It kind of remind me of hard cover bag pack we had when we were very young.

This is a cassette player radio, and recordable type. This is not antique yet, but hard to see this now. In 50 years in future, this is an antique.

Do you notice the brand? Heineken. Never saw this brand on any electronics before. Is it possible get it free for buying a carton of beer?

Now came the interesting part. A man selling his coin collection. He has many old coins that we won't see it anywhere again.

BIG $1 coin. Before $ become RM.

I can't post  photo of the whole site because a ladyboss told me she was forbid by her son for  selling at there. So I have to keep their face confidential. Or else they will be in trouble. Nothing much actually, and not many people know about them. I was there because I went there for a school's charity sales.

I remember they used to sell 2nd hand stuffs at the parking lot (now under renovation) at the Taman Selera couple of years ago for RM4 for half a day. A pity it has to end. One can discover some good stuff like those coins.

Have a good sunday!
