The Reykjavík flea market....Work in progress

The Reykjavík flea market is in the heart of Reykjavík center every Saturday and Sunday and is called Kolaportið. This is a very interesting place with people with personality, all the way from young kids to very old people selling there stuff that has been in there basemant for years or just selling their toys that they don't play with anymore.
This market has been up since i can remember and it is a very fun place to be at, you can get everything there from fish to candy or samurai sword to antic camera, I love this place.
I decided last sunday that i wanted to do a documentary project about this amazing place, and the plan is to photograph everybody with a booth and the people shopping there. So hopefully i will get something descent there, here are some photos i shot last sunday, but keep a good look for more because i everything goes according to plan this is gonna be a big assignment for me.

Here are bigger images
