Default Swap meet in NC

There is a swap meet in Raleigh at the fair grounds this coming weekend. Founded about it on Craigslist. Here is a link.

It will be our first time there as a vendor, I hear it is a large show, mostly vehicles ranging from 50s - 70s and a good bit of hot rods. This year it will be sanctioned by the AACA for the first time with AACA judging. Should be interesting to see if the purists present it with any changes. Here is the link to their website:

The autofair is great been going for about the last 10 years now. Its now the largest swap meet/ car show on the east coast. Its huge. Not a lot of VW stuff but its a great swap meet for the 50s threw 70s stuff. If you are planing on coming down you should think about tring to get a room reserved now, if there is any left.
It starts on a Thursday and ends on Sunday.

Lucky me I am only about an hour away.

Already have the reservations, we are staying at the Charlotte University Holiday Inn on University Park Dr. That was the closest I could find. Made the reservation well over a month ago.

As far as the biggest on the East Coast.......from what I hear it is big but not nearly as big as the show here in Hershey.

Last year they where advertising it as the largest on the east coast . I think it just had past carsley and hershey. I have been to hershey about 5 years ago and its hard to say. Either way its freaking big. Takes two full days to walk it, with little looking.

Hope to see you there I will have 2 spaces in the orange field and 3 in the sucky green field. How about you?

I am not sure where we will be. Since its our first time we are being banned to one of the outside fields. We requested the Red field and I believe that is where they will be placing us. We have a rather large truck and need some room for it. I think I requested 4 back to back spaces exposed to two rows.

What will you be selling there? If you need to sell any tires or want some on consignment let me know, we can work something out.
