New guy here---Here's what I have. I shut down the family small engine business after 65 years, therefore I have an old collection of 65 years worth of STUFF! I sold off most of my signs and my chain saw collection, but I still have a lot of manuals; Toro, Simplicity, Devere, McCulloch, Lombard, etc. Would this be a good place to sell them? I wouldn't be asking a crazy high price for anything, just rather sell than throw away, but still need gas money.

So, how do I get started? Do I need to register and get a spot or just show up? I can live out of the back of my truck as long as that's permitted. And why do people go on Tuesday and Wednesday, if the show doesn't start until Thursday, is that the best days to get the good deals or the best spots?

Just show up. You can call Jake to reserve a spot in the flea market area, or just pay Jake when you get there, and he take's you out in the main field and you just set up out there. ,There are a lot of guys that like me pull in wed. morning and set up. A lot of stuff is sold the 1st. two days, and by Friday guys, are pulling out because the show is over Sat.

If you haven't been then you need to go. It is worth a 10 hr drive one way. Nothing like it.

Reason the store is closing? Be a shame to lose it after all these years, and it goes with the museum. Hope it isn't closing due to a walmart!

They said store is closing from lack of business. I hope we can boost it next week! They have also started a GOFUNDME page where you can donate money.

Greg

Did you ever get your 3 hp Fairbanks and pump finished?

If you have a video sure would be nice.

I have only worked on mine a little due to other things happening around here.
