CT Swap planned for June 25, 2017

I'm in the very early stages of planning a swap in Berlin, CT on June 25th.

There are still a ton of logistics to work out but I wanted to gauge interest. So, if you're interested in selling or showing up to look around please feel free to leave a comment here and I'll work to keep you included on the mailing list, etc.

If you want to send a direct email it's: CTbicycleswap@gmail.com

Thanks,
J

This sounds like a great idea, I know I have plenty of stuff to sell at an event like this especially since it is relatively local to me.

How is the crowd? I may be interested, but it's about a 3hr drive.

This is the inaugural event so I have no idea on attendance, yet. I know there will be at least three vendors since my brother and I will have a spot, the shop underwriting the costs will have a spot with lots of their misc. parts from the basement, etc. and I believe my friend plans to set up as well.

Once we launch the official push and I start taking space reservations I'll post an update.

Slowly getting this going ... who knew having more than one person making decision would take so long? LOL

Thanks for the interest, I will keep you informed

Sorry folks, looks like this one is now dead!

The sponsoring shop backed out after getting an insurance quote from their carrier.

I "might" look into doing one on a much smaller scale later in the season- fall sometime - but that depends on a number of factors.

Anyway, thanks for the interest. There is a swap in Wethersfield I believe June 11. I'll check that date and get back to you.

That's too bad but understand. Yea would love the firm date on the Wethersfield swap. That is right over the bridge for me.

Cheers for your efforts!

Just a thought: at the KNC cross race last year, there were lot’s of shops/vender selling old/used items. I bought a bunch of stuff.

You may want to look into that as an outlet.

I have nothing to do with the event, other than being there!
