Out on perimeter. If you don't drive or must take public transportation leave yourself some time as it is far from the center. Plus go early, alleys and alleys of treasures. Go with cash as this will allow you to negotiate. What you are looking for they probably have it. I found a broken fall from the 70's easily repairable, bringing back child hood memories.
I was rather disappointed by this market To start of with it is incredibly far from the city center so about an hour is needed to get there. Once arrived, you will find that the stores are filled with just lots of replicas. On top of that the store owners will absolutely try to rip you off so be prepared to barter. Would not recommend.
