Swap Meet reports

Recommended Posts

Hard to believe there have been no swap meets since the last reports here.  How about some of you swap meet fans giving us some info/photos on recent events like Bakersfield, Carlisle, etc.

Spring Carlisle was well attended and had typical springtime PA weather. Thursday was chilly with a few scattered sprinkles. Friday was off and on rain, heavy at times. Saturday was breezy and clear. It was hard to gauge the number of empty vendor spaces, as some left early after the Friday rain. However, many vendors have been moved forward from the North Field; and the number of vacant spaces in the north field was less than last year. So let’s say vendor attendance was up. The parts for sale were of quite a variety as the pictures show. Yes, it’s not Hershey- but after a long Winter’s nap- it was a fun weekend.

Vendor attendance was definitely higher than it has been for the last 4-5 years. The "loop" at the northeast corner hasn't been full of vendors in at least that much time. Weather Tues and Wed was beautiful and even hot. Spring 20180 I was setting up our canopy while it was snowing.  This year it was 80 deg. Unfortunately, there were few buyers and fewer still actually spending money. I did see some younger folks actually carrying out parts (core supports, bumpers, body panels) but all-in-all it appears that few people are actually building anything.
