    This is our SIXTH Annual Event (each year 2nd Sunday in June)...
    Seller Spaces are still $25, which goes to the WHS Bicycle Club

    All makes, years, styles, everything good that is bicycle.
    There are family activities and many people who don't normally get to go to swaps.

    Besides the normal crowd, you'll have a lot of families and first timers. Good chance to sell accessories and entry collectors stuff, as well.

    Hope to see you there. RSVP is helpful for our planning (just email below), but not binding nor required.

    Share on Facebook here...
    Our easy to share facebook event
    https://www.facebook.com/events/2272840756332072/
    (Expect maybe between 120-320 (maybe more it grows each year) folks not all of which will show up on facebook.) I do all I can to get you the most foot traffic possible. Please help spread the word and share...

    Our Youtube video...


    Sleep a little later, easy unload and reload. Folks from Boston, Mass, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, and Upstate New York have come... (Lot's of "civilians", kids, and family's walk through... planned to coincide with another event which should bring out extra people as well.)

    If you can't come, please share. We aren't competing with any shows, we just want one in our backyard once a year. Come and promote your show too. The more shows in the calendar, the healthier the hobby.

    to reserve a spot tbrown@wethersfield.me (no money required to RSVP, just helps us plan)

    UPDATE:

    For folks who normally look for this on craigslist, just FYI there are/is someone flagging Swap Meets and getting the postings removed. I don't know why they do this, if they think a one day event is competition to selling, or if they really think they are the "craigslist police" and think it is against the rules (which it isn't)... ???

    SO PLEASE HELP BY SPREADING THE WORD ABOUT THIS SHOW. Even if you can't make it, maybe some others in your circle can. On the facebook listing we have over 400 people interested and 40+ already committed to going (and reached almost 9000 but that really doesn't mean anything except it's a big cool number o_O)...

    Here's the event listing...

    Some people do Copake and then this on the way home on Sunday (in the AM). (we don't want to step on any other shows toes, and we are happy to help promote other shows that aren't on the same day ours is. So feel free to send or bring fliers).

    What's going on in Copake? I'll come up from NJ if there's two shows in one weekend.

    Great day, getting bigger and better each year. Quick sales of a Kick bike and my first 20” rat rod bike that run its last ride.
