    A small meet but I've had luck finding desirable items at the smaller ones.
    One year at Rickreall a guy had a 40(ish) Willys coupe project, talk about a shock to see.
    Haven't beat the swap meet trail for a number of years but pretty much have hit all of the ones in Oregon as well as a handful in Washington since the mid 70's.

    Thanks for posting this! I haven't been to a swap for quite some time and this one is just too close to me to pass up.

    I too have found many items here in the past, the organizer is trying to see how much pent up demand there is with Portland swap meet and many others being canceled. He has rented the fairgrounds for two extra months and I would like to see it be successful, I am hankering for a swap meet!

    Went to Vancouver Bolt first Sat. this month and was shocked at the turnout of vendors and buyers for that usually tiny swap meet! Didn't find anything, but it was great to be there and see friends again!
    I'll definitely hit Rickreall swap meet this June date! If the weather is good it will give me an excuse for a road trip in one of the hotrods.

    The one that the Model A club puts on in Yakima in June has been canceled for this year. It's a small swap meet that usually has some interesting parts.

    The guy I bought the Hurst shifters from had a prewar Roof two carb flathead intake for $1,000 but would take $900 .

    I went Saturday morning, saw @Pist-n-Broke and @Marty Strode , it was nice just seeing people out and about. I bet there was more hand shaking than money trading going on.
