    The jails are letting out people who have been charged with offenses like attempted murder,because of limited space. Yet, we're looking at putting away people for years for selling counterfeit handbags? We are administered by idiots.

    Anyone who thinks they can buy a prada bag at a flea market is smoking some seriously good crack.

    shocker? no. this is only one of many that sell counterfeit items at this place. it really needs to be shut down in my opinion. oh, and the it's a first offense, warrants suspension? this kind of attitude does not help curb this kind of outlaw practices. it should be first offense, gone forever, never come back, ever. period.

    IMHO, I agree. as long as there is a demand.people who want a cheap knock-off specifically go to the flea market. otherwise, they would have gone to the mall where the genuine items are sold.

    From now on when I am at the Galt Flea Markey I will stop at all the people peddling DVD's... and those selling DVD's that have no label on the dvd will be turned in! I am sick and tired of people duplicating dvd movies and selling them, ripping us off!This is the only way the public can try to help keep the Galt Flea Market honest, at least regarding DVD's!One must ask why the Galt Flea Market doest have (1) rep) wandering the market to ensure the venders are not selling counterfeit DVD's?
