That's more like it. I was counting up the spaces at pate and quit when I got to 2K which was about half of it. That's just the area that they regularly use though they have used more than what's shown on the site in the past when more vendors show up. They just keep working their way around the track. It's at Texas Motor Speedway. The small swapmeet this weekend has 900 or so spaces depending on if they use the grass or not and it's the smallest of the local ones. Only smaller ones are in the sticks and they aren't worth going to (junk). Though this one is the small one I like it the best cause it has the best mixture of vendors and very little junk vendors.
Only prob with going to a swapmeet that far from home is when I find something big how do I get it home? It'd have to be a good deal to make it worth shipping. Not sure if I get one or two checked bags free but I could get cheap bags there and load them up.
Always in April in Portland is the largest swap meet on the west coast.We went last year but a lot of the dealers didn't. Not sure what the plan is for this year.Was thinking about it and many say it's a big swapmeet but after looking at the web site I'm impressed with the site but the number of spaces is pretty small. It says nearly 1500 spaces. That's not even half the size of the Pate swapmeet. I was kind of thinking about seeing if someone there could pick me up etc and go but if it's that small I'll stay here. Our small swapmeets are in the 900-1500 space range. I guess I'm used to the everything is bigger in TX....Rules: Please play nicely with others. -List members page (text & pic links): http://www.myelcamino.net/eclist.htm -List members page (all pics): http://www.myelcamino.net/ec_list.htm No virus found in this incoming message.
