    It's become quite a good swap meet. Since it's so early in the year sometime it's hampered by very cold temps and sometime pretty sloppy with mud in some areas if it's been raining or snow & ice thawing. But, the die-hards still show up.

    They used snow plows yesterday to remove the snow from the fairgrounds.

    Cape Girardeau, MO.....Arena Park. Many get there before it's light out, shopping with flashlights. For all purposes, by what I've noticed in recent years, people start packing up mid afternoon.

    I’ll be there but I’d lay money parking will be a mud fest which should be fun and interesting. Nothing a 4 wheel drive loaded with cord wood can’t handle.

    Great to hear you're actually having a swap meet.
    Show us pics of what we're missing! Here in the East, Maryland is having one in about a month.

    I got to the swap meet shortly after 6:00 AM and stayed about 3 hours. Only bought a couple small items and unfortunately found nothing that was actually on my mental "shopping list". Sorry, but didn't take any photos. I'd say there were at most about 50% as many venders as a more typical year, but the recent v-e-r-y cold temps and snow we had probably kept many from being there.

    FWIW, I'm on blood thinner and am always cold. By the time I left even wearing a hooded zip-up sweatshirt-type coat, insulated coveralls and gloves my fingers were numb!
