Allentown Swap

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me information about this indoor swap. While at Hershey I was speaking to the guys at the bumper boys about their show schedule. They said they go to Allentown in January but no longer a few in the spring. 

Is it worth an overnight trip to go Any information would be appreciated

I was there a few years ago, I live about 100 miles away and never been back, it really did not offer much. That same weekend there is an indoor swap meet in Springfield Mass, that too is really not anything special

It's worth maybe an hour drive if you're bored s**tless and need some Chinese tools. Otherwise not so much....................Bob

Hi, John.  Likewise I was there around 2007 or so with our old friend Ron Flory.  Spent about 30 minutes then left.  Nothing of interest unless you are into Chinese tools, modern electrical fittings, polishing supplies, etc.  May have changed however I doubt it.

 

Regards,

Pretty accurate. The building is too small and the weather too cold, although a few brave souls set up outside. Perhaps a proxy for “Winter Carlisle”- the hobby would support a larger event at a better venue.
