Does this event draw in many vendors? I am thinking of going seeing that I am in that area every Saturday watching trains. But my train watching partner is wanting to go to Spartanburg but if this is a good radio show I will check it out first then drive to Spartanburg.

The history of the meet is that attendance is very small with 10 to no more than 15 folks bringing stuff to sell and not many buyers. But the shelters are reserved and all it takes is for folks to just come... I have come away with stuff that made me happy and been able to sell as well. And when trading winds down after 10 AM..... the train museum is huge...

We have been having an event there for upwards of 15 years as I recall... Ham and commercial gear show up from time to time but it is no boat anchor hot spot.... Old folks are winding-down their collections every year, so yes it does show up... No venue is going to guarantee you will find stuff you want to buy however. I drive about 140 miles round trip..

Picked up two Hallicrafters. S-40A and a SX-99. And a Star-Lite FM-500. Glad I stopped by.

The Star-Lite works. But it seems to be missing some form of a battery holder.
