Jim,

I think we might seriously try to make it there this year. Been meaning to go but never want to get out of the house. I will post it on the calendar so it shows on the sidebar.

I went a few years ago as it was on a nice sunny day. It wasn't real big but there were some engines running and a few GTs. Maybe a couple dozen vendors? They had a nice fire going and you could cook hot dogs over the fire. If the weather's decent, I'll try to stop by.

Outdoors in January??   No thanks for Me at least. Most winter meets at least have some sort of barn or building to go into, heated or not.  It's bad enough to stand out in cold in Portand's Spring and Fall meets some times. They plow the feild/yard or stay on drives or just how is that done?  I always wish could go to Forida's Flywheeler meets in winter, but THAT is at least Warm!

I was thinking that this could be quite interesting to go to. Then I remembered that this is the weekend we always head to the mountains. So now its another event happening on a weekend already filled with other annual plans,

George and I just got home from the swap meet. We left at 7 this morning . The temperature was 11 degrees and the windchill -7. I was surprised at the good turnout. We saw quite a few folks we know from shows and a number of our members here on the site. The biggest thing at the show were the small engines. When Jim made the original post about plenty of food he was certainly right. The organizers had hot dogs and sausage out by the fire with a donation jar and metal rods to hold your hot dog or sausage while you cooked it over the fire. There was also a tent with hot dogs and kraut, donuts, hobo stew and coffee. The tent also had a donation jar so I hope folks were generous and help the organizers cover their expenses.

 

  George also spent some of my money on a sickle mower for the front of the ride-a- matic. We bought it from one of our members but will be picking it up at a later date. I'll post pics when we get it home.

More of a turnout than I thought there would be. Had a lot of fun talking with everyone. Tried spending as much time as possible by the bonfire. Once the feet got cold I wasn't warming up. It was terrific getting to hear hit and miss engines running in the middle of winter. We struck a deal on the sickle bar mower for a Bolens Ride-a-Matic which we will be picking up here soon.

 

Here are some pics. Had a great time and would definitely do it again.

This is the first time I ever heard of a winter swap meet for garden equipment!

I wish we had fun things like that here :(

Looks like a good turnout!
