48 North Fisheries Spring Swap Meet 2011

2 April 2011 is the annual spring swap meet sponsored by 48 North and hosted at Fisheries Supply (map). I’ve been going or selling for about 5 years now. It is common practice for people above a certain age to be milling around the place at 0600 or earlier trying to get the best stuff it does go on all day, but I usually give up by Noon at the latest. There are quite a few professional buyers (Ebayers, used book store folks, etc.) and a good steady stream of regular salty folks and everybody wants a bargain so be prepared to haggle. This year the forecast is for rain so I’m a little worried about how things might go, but we’ve go stuff to sell and this is one of the best places to do it!
