    I plan on being there; kind of a last outdoor event of the season. Diverse selection of stuff from weed wackers to snow blowers. Some car stuff too. Can be cold and windy but warm as well. Heavy attendance in the early am creates quite a jam getting in.

    Often a good sized car corral

    Nice bunch of folks running it.

    Nov.10 is correct!
    For some reason, they had to move it up a week?
    We will be there, buying or selling? not sure yet?
    Suppose to be cold the end of the week?
    If so, I will be only buying,I don't want to sit in the cold?
    Getting old sucks!

    I was at Thompson on Saturday. I could see thought bubbles from every person walking...."where the hell is the end?"

    They had to move the date later because Lake Compound runs its FrightFest thru the weekend after Halloween.

  9. Drove up to Lake Compounce at 5:am and 20 degrees:confused:. Got there a little before 6:am and the line was about a mile long going in. Pulled in next to GregCT and we walked the swap meet together. Forgot my HAMB knitted cap and gloves.:oops: Did not take many photos because I did not want to take my hands out of my pockets.:rolleyes: Seemed to be less vendors than other years, but still quite a few. There was some early automotive stuff mixed in with the snow blowers.
    I did see a mattress and frame for sale.:eek: Still it was good to be out and about and see some friends. I bought nothing but breakfast after we left. Greg got a cool deuce gas tank, a winch and well you have to ask him about the last item.:p Here are a couple of photos. The Chevy sedan was about the best thing and deal I saw. Driving In

  10. Someone had very, very, bad thoughts about putting a V8 in an early Chevrolet!

    I must have been a few minutes after you. Froze as well so took only a couple photos I sent to bug a friend out of of state but “proof” it happened. Walked out with a ‘39 Ford column and a ‘38 Deluxe speedometer 299667C6-C331-4C1B-BCC2-95126B78420F.jpeg 93FF068D-4F70-4722-B9E7-F452599AF407.jpeg .
