In this second part on Dusseldorf Secondhand, I’d like to pick out another market and secondhand shop. Last time, we had a look at the Radschlagermarkte and the Humanet Shop.
Trödelmarkt Düsseldorf OBI
We came first to this flea market a few months ago, via the previously mentioned marktcom.de website. It was dribbling with rain and we had taken the effort of taking as tram and walking to the site, only to find that the not-so-spacious parking lot was half-empty. Bummer!
We tried again last week, and even though the weather was certainly a lot better, the stands were not. There is a mix between dealers and individuals, the former greatly outnumbering the latter – driving prices up. There is not a lot second-hand to be gotten at this market, most stands deal in new wares or food. The second-hand items we did see were mainly a re-hash from our last visit. The same dealers, the same items. Yawn!
That being said, it is a great place if you’re looking for (not-just) nearly-outdated chocolates, candy, coffee, cookies, sausages, yoghurt or cheese.

Rash und Raus, Kaiserswerther Straße
The Cash und Raus stores might all have the same name, but they are not actually all the same shop as what they offer varies widely. This one in particular has friendly and helpful staff and carry large volumes of books and records, which are reasonably priced.
They have some bric-a-brac displayed in various cabinets but most of it seems – especially compared to charity shops in the UK – quite expensive. A few paintings and illustrations are dotted around the shop, there is only a tiny selection of clothing (usually 10 items or less) and a couple of items that are actually not for sale. Kept as display objects, they torture me, as they are usually the best things in the whole shop!
