I have been going to swap meets for more than 50 years. It used to be a good time, and make a few dollars. I used to go to 20-25 swap meets a year to sell. Now, I only go to 2 to sell. The Jalopy Showdown, where our kind of people go, and Fall Carlisle. When the swap meets were put on by car clubs things were pretty good, but now, a lot of swap meets are being taken over by different groups.They don't have the core car people involved. They saw that the car people did okay, so they thought they could do better. Guess what ? These people don't realize how much work is involved to do it right, and they set themselves up to fail. There used to be some good swap meets in New England, but a lot of them are gone. how many people remember Amherst New Hampshire swap meet / flea market ? I started going there in 1967. When the good promoter died, a few years ago, and someone else took over, doubled the price for the vendors, and pissed off a lot of people.. Now it is just a memory.
