Wisconsin Antique Radio Club Swap Meet

http://warci.org/

General Meet Information:

There is no charge for admission!

Please note the later start time! Sellers are welcome to set up before the opening time, but we ask that buyers do not enter the selling area prior to the 8:00 start time.

The flea market starts at 8:00 AM, announcements are held at 10:30 AM followed by the donation auction and free pizza (usually around 11:00). Each meet will vary slightly, so check out the monthly flyer for more information!

As typical of most swap meets, the items are for sale by individual collectors, and most are one-of-a-kind. So for best selection (and the best deals), BE EARLY! But please stay around and get to meet some of the club members. These swap meets are a great way to connect with other local collectors that share your interests. By socializing at the meets you can find others that may have what you are looking for, radios & parts, people that can service your radios, and you can make some good friends.

Swap meet spaces are $7 for WARCI members, and $10 for non-members. Tables will be provided for indoor use only and are first-come, first-serve.


WARCI is proud to offer our members and guests the largest number of club events of any Midwest area antique radio club. This year we offer 9 swap events on our schedule. The remaining WARCI event calendar for 2017 is shown below.

Thanks for your concern. Would you like to volunteer to man the door? We can always use extra help.

There is no way to effectively block all buyers out, especially when the majority of our meets are held outdoors. We are hoping that members and guests, both buyers and sellers obey the rules.

I don't expect policing during the outdoor swaps, only the inside ones. I don't know the weather sitiuation for this weekend so I don't know if this one will be inside or out. I might solve the problem by selling this time. :D

I suspect it will be indoors, the early forecast shows rain with the temperature in the 30's.

Even if you enter as a seller, you really shouldn't be buying or selling before 8:00 AM. But alas, we have no good answer to enforcing the rule.

All ready for tomorrow?

Forecast still shows rain in the morning, with the temperature in the lower 40's.

Photos of the meet are available now:

Despite the rain we had a great turnout with 20 registered sellers, and over 70 in attendance. I came home with a nice Zenith tombstone myself.

The posted signs (no sales before 8AM) seemed to curtail most of the early selling. Our future Milwaukee meets will have the doors of the Terminal opening for sellers at 8AM (the same time as the advertised hours of the meet), which should address the issue of selling before the advertised start time. I look forward to seeing everyone in April (Madison), May (Cedarburg), or June (Milwaukee) for one of our next meets!
