I understand.
you don’t have to email me directly.
I mean to send an email out to all the people who were interested of course.

I am a little concerned whether you’re having this or not and I’m kind of trying to confirm it.
Thank you

>>> Hi Everyone,
>>> Alas, there will be no consignment at our hybrid VCF East coming up, but we have decided to try something new and have an *outdoor* Swap Meet. Vendors (which can be individuals) will be able to rent space and people will be able to attend the event for the very modest fee of $5. All VCF surplus will also be on sale at this event.
>>> DATE: Saturday, November 7, with Rain Date Sunday, November 8
>>> TIME: 9AM TO 6PM
>>> Location: InfoAge, 2201 Marconi Road Wall, NJ 07719
>>> $20 for vendors for first space, $10 for each additional space. 4 spaces max - BRING YOUR OWN TABLES/BLANKETS/WHATEVER
>>> $5 for admissions for general public
>>> We want to emphasize this will be an *outdoor* event with a rain date on the following day. There will be no indoor contigency in the case of rain both days because of social distancing issues. If the event doesn't happen, it doesn't happen, and no one will be charged if the event does not happen.
>>> This will be different from consignment as we wont have a central place to pay for items. Vendors and individuals will have to man your area (or have someone else man it) for the entire event. There is absolutely no reason you can't work together, though, and have multiple people's items in one space (therefore manned by multiple people). The event will be only about the swap meet, so there should not be much of a pull (beyond wishing to shop) from manning your space. No electricity will be provided, so all items will have to be sold as is. We are also working on a lunch plan.
>>> I'm particulary excited about this because, back in the 1990s, my first stint (habit, if you prefer) of vintage computer collecting was supported by attending regular computer swap meets in Silicon Valley at De Anza College and Lawrence Livermore Labs. The enthusiam at consignment each year tells me we are ripe to bring something like this back on a regular basis, but, of course, COVID make things trickier than usual.
>>> Best wishes,
