Amcorp Mall flea market-Collectibles Item

This is my 2nd post about Amcorp Mall Flea Market. Amcorp Mall free market open on Saturday and Sunday; from 9.00 am until 5.00 pm. The flea market of Amcorp Mall located in the mall at the lower ground and the 1st floor. The Amcorp Mall is a mall situated in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia, located opposite the Taman Jaya LRT station which is served by the Kelana Jaya Line, operated by Rapid KL. It is also located in the proximity of the Petaling Jaya Hilton Hotel and the Armada Hotel. This is one of the flea market recommended by most collector for antique, coin, vintage and collectables item. You can also found food item, dress, jewelery, craft and other stuff in this market.

I divided my Amcorp Mall Flea market into two post. The other post is about coin and antique item that can be found in this flea market. A collectable or collectible is typically a manufactured item designed for people to collect. In this respect, they are distinguishable from other subjects of collections, which may also include natural objects (e.g., butterflies) and objects manufactured for purposes other than collecting (e.g., stamps). Some objects designed for other purposes, such as toys, become so popular among collectors that they are later marketed specifically to that audience.

The earliest collectibles were included as incentives with other products, such as cigarette cards in packs of cigarettes. Popular items developed a secondary market and sometimes became the subject of "collectible crazes". Eventually many collectible items came to be sold separately, instead of being used as marketing tools to increase the appeal of other products. To encourage collecting, manufacturers often create an entire series of a given collectible, with each item differentiated in some fashion. Examples include sports cards depicting individual players, or different designs of Beanie Babies. Enthusiasts will often try to assemble a complete set of the available variations.

I don't know much about Collectables item price but I can see that you can find many collectibles item in Amcorp mall flea market. You can find stamps, toys, cassette, compact disk, LP records, old boxes, coca-cola item, Books, Magazine and many item that I don't ever think people will collect. Some of the items are still in mint condition (look new and wrap in plastic). Do any of you been gone to Amcorp Mall Flea market lately? What have you buy?
