Kobey's Swap Meet
San Diego Sports Area Parking Lot, Midway District
(619) 226-0650

This isn't a sure thing, but if you're lucky you could save about 400 percent. Go to the Kobey's Swap Meet (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.), pay your dollar. Remember where you parked. If you're gonna look around at other stuff -- and you should -- bring a hat. Okay, now set foot for savings. The guy we're looking for is usually in the second or third row, coming from the main entrance. He's not always there, which is why you should be open to browsing around. But if he is, he'll sell you a 4-oz. bottle of Boston conditioning (or storing) solution, $12 at the grocery store, three for $5. We know what you're thinking: this stuff must be ten years old. Not so. Every container has a date stamped on it, and if you can't use three bottles by 10/2002, you have really dirty lenses.
