Q&A with No Heroes Mag.

No Heroes Magazine were kind enough to do a Q&A on the flea market. Check it out below or here

If you’ve been to a punk show or dropped into Resist Records you’ve probably (at least) seen Mel, the brains behind the operation that will be Sydney’s first Punk Rock Flea Market. To be held at the Sando next month, it’s shaping up to be a huge and fun afternoon that everyone should head down and check out.

We spoke to Mel to get the lowdown on what the day is all about and how you can get involved and help out.

Check out the flier below for all the details, then check out the Q&A below that!

So what  exactly is the Punk Rock Flea Market?
It’s basically just a place where people can sell their cds/records/tshirts, basically the stuff they would sell on Ebay or on a forum etc.

How did the idea strike you in the first place?
Basically I got back from overseas and didn’t have to go back to work till the new year. I had a whole bunch of stuff I’ve been meaning to sell on Ebay but have been too lazy to get around to it and after being at The Fest and seeing the flea markets they had I thought, “Wouldn’t it be a good idea if someone did the same thing here?” Then I was like, “Wait, I’m a someone, someone like me! I can do this.” It just snowballed from there.

I understand they’re quite a frequent thing in the US. Have you taken any ideas on what to do and what not to do from those?
Yes and no, I guess because this is the first one its really just trial and error, but I think I have everything organised. Hopefully it will all be a breeze on the day.

What are you hoping people will get out of it?
I hope people come and buy stuff and that it’s just a fun, all-round day with some sweet tunes playing over the PA. Hopefully, if the day goes well I can make it a semi regular thing. It’s always fun to find a bargain!

Is it a one off deal? Or are you hoping to make it a semi-regular occurrence?
I really hope its a semi-regular occurrence. Hopefully Sydney people will come out and support it.

I saw a Twitter post where you mentioned that you would like to take it on the road. Is this still something that you’re considering?
I would LOVE to take it on the road for an East coast tour perhaps. It’s really just waiting to see what happens with this first one, and then I can go from there.

Quite a few people in the punk rock scene have gotten behind it? Did you expect people to latch onto the idea so quickly or is it demonstrative of the friendship in the scene?
Honestly, I really had no idea how it would be received. When I came up with the idea, I told a few people and they thought it was a great idea so it got me super excited to do it. The fact that people are getting behind it is awesome. It has actually kind of blown me away abit.

Do you have any particular items that you’ll be on the look out for?
Me personally, I don’t really but that’s the fun thing about markets you might find something you were never expecting. Last time that happened to me I found the Rival Schools Used For Glue 7-inch for $5. BARGAIN! I have alot of punk and hardcore stuff for sale, pretty much my whole CD collection (over 500 cds), plenty of small tshirts, records, badges, stickers and possibly a few skateboards.

So how can people find out more information about being stall holders or if they just have questions about the market?
They can head over to the website www.punkrockfleamarket.wordpress.com or just email me punkrockfleamarket@gmail.com If you have things you are wanting to sell, book a table its pretty cheap. If you want to help with some promo please email me. It’s shaping up to be a sweet day.
