Inoue Marina Selling Clothes at a Flea Market on Saturday

"It was hot but fun!!"
In her blog, Inoue Marina tells of selling some clothes at a flea market in Tokyo on Saturday. A friend got a group together to contribute clothes they didn't need and raise money for charity.

Marina says she contributed some things she had only worn once or twice.

They set up a stuffed animal as their mascot, and lots of people wanted to buy it, but it was not for sale. She was also surprised how many guys wanted to buy the red trunk they used to carry things in. It was not for sale, either.

There are various flea markets in Tokyo every weekend, so it is impossible to say which this one was.

Marina wrote that it was great to see such a wide range of people coming to buy. She wants to go all the time, now -- even though she went the whole day without eating and almost collapsed.

You can see how warm it really was in the sun, as Marina uses a parasol and shades her eyes in this photo taken by someone else and posted via Twitter:

And here are the two more shots from Marina's blog:

"Enthusiastic salesgirl."

I'm definitely glad that Marina didn't collapse... it would be a shame for a voice like hers to be under the weather for any reason whatsoever.

It's definitely good to see that Inoue Marina is generous... generous enough to donate some of her old clothes to a flea market. Even though there was no chance in this century of her getting even a FRACTION of the money that Yuuki Aoi got for just one dress from ALL of her offerings, it's good to know that she was kind enough to let the public purchase and collect a portion of her wardrobe for affordable prices.

Needless to say, Inoue Marina has a LOT of class.
