I would like to say I was happy to have attended this event as a seller and buyer.
I did reasonably well selling items and picked up a couple things that I needed.
I wouldn’t consider this criticism, but I would say one thing.
To come up with more ways to advertise the event.
To Work with the antique radio guys & post the event in the ARRL calendar website if possible.
Through the different places to get the publics attention.
I posted notices and events on Craigslist and Facebook.
I’m looking forward to doing this again at Festivus, hopefully!
My extremely complicated, hand held electronic device.
