Memorial Day Weekend get together
« on: May 01, 2019, 06:09:15 PM »
Since I haven't heard anything about a get together/swap meet for this year, I am planning to have a yard sale on Saturday, May 25th.   If I am wrong and something is happening behind the scenes please let me know.   If I am right and nothing is in the works, I would be happy to have one or two people join me on that day.   Or, if your yard and parking situation is better than mine (it's hard to imagine that it wouldn't be) I would be happy to haul my stuff to your place.   All I know is I have a lot of stuff that I need to find homes for and can use the cash, so one way or another I will be having some sort of sale.

Is anyone interested in participating or hosting?

I may stop to say hi, but have little to sell.  What hours are you contemplating?

Probably 9-1, something like that.   I can be flexible if someone else is interested in joining.

Nothing is happening, as far as I know. But, we are thinking maybe a September gathering, closer to the City. Moving it from memorial day weekend.  Thoughts are welcome, possibly ignored (if stupid).  If this thread catches any traction, I will get deeper into our thoughts and theories.

I made a call to Pitt. Expect a call back later this week or the first of next to see if they would have some interest in hosting in the fall.

STaL, are you planning this at your home residence?  Or somewhere close?

Thanks,

If something like that happens I would be game for it also, but will still try to move some stuff on the Memorial Day Weekend.

Yes, in my driveway unless something better presents itself.   This would be less of a swap meet and more of a simple yard sale as I have limited space.

But a vintage hifi yard sale,  that has a lot more voltage than a regular yard sale,  IMO...

I did one last year and it was lightly attended but almost everyone who came spent money.

Well, I'm looking for a preamplifier with phono, if someone happens to have a lower end(i.e.affordable....) unit to sell there. It seems like Craigslist has dried up anymore. Or, people expect top eBay dollar and the item stays listed for YEARS. Your get together would be worth my drive.

Okay, this won't be happening.   Real life got in the way.
