This year, the Indiana Historical Radio Society is partnering up with the Cincinnati Antique Radio Club to
present the CARS/IHRS Vintage Radio and Electronics Swap Meet, Saturday October 5, 2019, at the
Springwood Park Pavilion, Richmond, Indiana. This is the first time a swap meet is being held in
Richmond, an old industrial city rich in history and bordering the Indiana/Ohio border line. There will be
indoor and outdoor vending spaces, a radio show/contest and an auction at the end of the show. This meet
will be an excellent venue to wind down the year for buying and selling vintage electronics so bring what
you can. Hopefully we’ll have a beautiful fall day for the meet.

Apparently the park’s lake is a popular fishing spot for the locals so you might want to bring a fishing pole
and try your luck after the show. Warning, the geese get cranky if you don't feed them bread crumbs.

A suggestion for anybody who's interested in Jenkins scanning televisions, visit the Wayne County Historical Museum.
They have a 60 line Jenkins scanning disc tuner and visor. Jenkins spent his childhood growing up on a farm north of Richmond. https://mrlinfo.org/history/biography/jenkinscf.htm

A great place to visit is Centerville, Indiana which is a few miles west of Richmond. This old historic town a number of great antique shops on Main Street (old US 40).
The biggest antique shop is Centerville Antique Mall on the north edge of town. It takes about an hour to view everything there the first time through. https://www.yelp.com/biz/centerville-an ... enterville

I think that it's wise to combine clubs for shows, it's a win/win for everyone

The antique mall in Centerville Indiana is no longer called "Webb's"

It is now "Centerville Antique Mall" but many still call it Webb's as that is what we remember it as.
I can't seem to open their website, but here is their facebook page.
