    Like I said, what have you got to lose except the gas....I'm in the bottom big building with the clock on...seeing you there will be just like Canfield !!
    Traditionally this sin't a bad show for buyers....lot's of garage cleaners leads to alot of bargains...I don;t sell much in movies there but have been going for over 25 years and it's 2 miles from home, can't afford NOT to sell there

    Ya I have been there forever too Stan....to be a nice day Sunday...should be packed till noon then deserted by 1:00 Pm like always. I wish there were more swaps closer to Pgh....Canfield is great, Parts A Rama sucks....too bad there isn't more out in Washington or Westmoreland Counties....one or two day indoor/outdoor swaps

    Bob you did describe it right, most people there are cleaning out garage and can get some good deals. Lots of old timers there to BS and tire kickers but after 1:00 ghost town. Best thing about this swap is when I pull in to unload in morning before I get out of the truck someone will have the back of the truck open digging through boxes asking me how much it is before I put it on table. Free labor!!

    It's amazing how many bargain hunters this event brings in....if you have stuff that has laid around the garage for 20 years and you have never used it...this is the place to sell it. While on the other end of the scale....if you are a buyer, this is a great place to find crap that you can resell in 3 weeks at Carlisle and make money...and make good money on. Or leave it lay around YOUR garage
    I sell DVD car movies at about 25 events a year, I don;t need a brinks truck after this event is over to haul home the cash....but this event is 1/2 mile from my house, and $15.00 a spot....how can you lose? Almost no gas, no motel, a couple $1.,50 hotdogs and you come home with a few hundred to take the wife to dinner....win/win

    Tell you what Ranunculous.....I'll leave the garage door open (Fridge in the garage has 2 fresh cases) and I'll head east and take YOUR wife out to dinner !!
