And kennett Classic is having an outdoor swap meet September 26th, as part
of our event glad you like our idea  There are still table spaces
available.   The weather should be fantastic in late September.

Contact me privately if you are interested in securing a table but dont
wait too long as there are limited spaces.and the price per space is only
$15.  The nice thing about our swap is that it's on the street of a retail
space with new-to-the-hobby collectors who have recently joined our group.
