In the book The Kite Runner, Baba and Amir operate a booth at the flea market along side many other Afghanistan’s.  Every Saturday early in the morning Baba and Amir would get up and look at all the garage sale ads.  They would drive to the garage sales in a bus while drinking hot tea.  They purchased the items that people no longer wanted.  They would fill up the bus. 

On Sunday mornings they would go to San Jose flea market where they had a rented spot.  They would make some profit of the items they had purchased at the yard sale.
