    What was the black market at your school?

    As in sold by pupils

    I would say mainly cookies and cans of drinks.

    As far as food, I remember that Fruit Roll-ups and Gushers were big ones (90's kid here). If you had a pack of Gushers or a single Fruit Roll-up, other kids in the lunchroom were usually willing to trade anything you wanted for them.

    edit: also Dunkaroos

    We had that one guy that would go into the next shopping center during lunch break and would "organize" you the thing you wanted, usually a games console for a fraction of the prize. Well that was until he was caught trying to shove 2 consoles, a few games and a controller (all with their packaging) down his pants. Wasn't exactly the brightest bulb. My buddies once ran a "mew unlock" service, that off-brand gamegeenie apparently paid for itself in less than a day. At some point there was active trading card exchange happening, mostly pokemon though during my time as the magic crowd wasn't that well established in my age bracket.

    Mainly sausage rolls, fizzy drinks, chocolate xD

    We had a shop in the village offsite where pupils were not allowed to go, but if you lived in the village you were able to. So the kids that lived in the village would go to the shop on break times and come back to sell all the shit.

    You had the typical beer/marijuana guys. Beer was usually someone with an older sibling that would hook it up for a shave of cash. The weed guy was mostly the same thing. Drugs beyond that really weren't readily available although from time to time you would hear about an acid or mushroom hook.

    Then you had the bootleg guys. You toss them a list of songs, they burn a CD for you (before even mp3s) and you had a disk with 10-15 songs you could jam too. The guy I knew had like 3 friends in the same circle and between them they had probably 6-7 of those massive black 4 per page CD books between them. These guys also usually had strange shit like candy bars and cans of soda they would flip too. I know, kind of strange, but that is just how it was.

    We also had a ticket guy. In the days before the internet getting tickets to concerts and stuff like that was more complicated. So when a big band was coming to town he would usually have 20-30 tickets he would scalp. If I remember right his dad was some sort of organizer at the place in town the concerts came to. I lived in Dallas at the time and he would also get his hands on sports tickets and stuff too. Was odd, but hey, if I had a connect like that and could make a cool 500-1000 a week every month or two in high school it would have been pretty fucking cool.

    All these guys seemed to be in it together as well. So if you wanted some weed from the weed guy he might ask you to get him a couple disks with a list of songs from the bootleg guy. Or the ticket guy would give you a ticket for a bag and 12 back this coming Saturday. Always was mixing around.

    Weed, hydros, adderall, other pills. When we were younger it was Pokemon and Yugioh cards. I don't remember kids ever selling candy or drinks... unless someone initiated the buy.

    was there unicorns and leprechauns at this school as well? because i don't believe you. i mean while your making shit up why not say that your school had the fountain of youth in the basement. there isn't a single school anywhere that doesn't have some sort of fights or mischief going on.

    Money.

    I was a “loan shark” in school.

    I wasn’t really. I had decent rates. I also helped students with their business endeavours. There was a girl who got a loan from me to buy a bunch of candies and snacks not sold in school and she sold them to other students.

    There was also art, drawings and things students sold.

    In middle school there were these twin brothers in the 7th grade (I was in 8th) that sold all kinds of candy out of their locker during the day between periods and after 9th period for a bit until they went home because their father worked in like a candy warehouse/factory/store or some shit, and he brought home a shit load of candy on the regular. They capitalized on that opportunity by bringing it to school and selling it for a quick profit. Both of them had their lockers on opposite sides of the school and would literally trap candy out of their lockers every period, every day. Since they had their lockers on both sides of the building, a quick snack was always a few seconds away after a boring class. Eventually once they got to high school they just kinda got bored of it and stopped. I would always tease them every year and just ask to buy some candy every time I saw one of them in the halls up until I graduated.

    That was probably the closest thing to a high school sitcom type experience I've ever had, unfortunately.

    Hmm? There were no drugs around and marijuana was stigmatized in the community at the time. There was this one kid who transfered from a bigger school and apparently brought drugs on his first day. He also started a fight on his first day and got expelled. But for the most part we were just normal kids and not violent drugee wannabees.
