Dont miss this great show FRI-SAT JULY 19-20 2019 at the Kalamazoo Expo Center. Just 2 hrs east of Chicago, 2 hours West of Detroit, 3.5 Hours north of Indianapolis, 4 hours from Columbus OH. One of, if not, the largest, vintage radio and electronics show in the USA. See the flyer for it here :
https://www.thevee.org/?page_id=243

To buy seller tables, go to the Extravaganza tab.

A few notes about this show....
1. This is the only show of this type you can park and hook-up an RV ! You just need to contact the Expo Center for permit, info is in the event flyer.
2. Car camping allowed too. 6 motels nearby as well.
3. OUTDOOR seller spaces have been added this year. See flyer.
4. Indoors its ideal, nice polished cement floors, great lighting, AC power drops down (sellers- buy AC power as an option when registering), good food service open the whole show, clean bathrooms. and, EASY LOAD-IN ! Carts available.

Also, the amazing Gilmore Car Museum is just 30 mins away. Its like a college campus of several buildings, including an authentic 50's era diner. See their site here:https://www.gilmorecarmuseum.org/ Come a day early or stay an extra day and check this place out !

Any other questions? See the event flyer first, or call me. Hope to see many of you there !

July 1 is LAST DAY to save $10 on your booth , table or outside vendor spaces at the Vintage Electronics Expo July 19-20 2019 at the Kalamazoo Expo Center.

The indoor flea market is over 20,000 sq ft. Many outside seller spaces are available this year too. You can hook up an RV or camp on site, there are 6 motels within 2 miles. Kalamazoo is only 2.25 hrs from Chicago !
Gas prices are lowest ever for a July month ! There is the amazing "Gilmore Car Museum" just 30 mins NE of the show.
Grab a pal or a spouse... its summer "Roadtrip" time !
See the event site www.thevee.org we just set all time record attendance at our winter show (1100 +), we are expecting a significant bump on this show too. A couple fresh to market estates are expected in the flea market, including some items from the recent Bruce Eddy estate.

For space info email or call Mark Goodwin at mrkgoowin at comcast.net or 734-316-280 THREE

I will have 10 booths full...
See you there !!!

I will see you all there. I will set up "Camp Radio" at Fort Custer recreation area. ( 20 mins away) Wed nite thru Sunday Morning. I get to do two things I enjoy, go camping ( in the woods) and RADIOS, RECORD PLAYERS ETC.

The "good Buy" auction is what gets me in trouble.

Great fun, bring friends.

only 9 hours from Paducah KY :wink:

Outside spaces and camping? With this heat? I wouldn't even want to have to unload/load my trailer and van in this weather. Won't be seeing me there.

Wish I could make it, but my house rebuilding takes priority. Summer is short here. Rebuilding a snowblower today. Wish there were more big inside meets when the weather is crappy outside. Family time in Wisconsin last week of July so might not be able to make Radiofest either this year :cry: .

We actually have an undercover loading dock too. Its just slower since there are two other overhead doors we normally use. So, rain wont stop this show ! Yeah the heat is not so nice but at least we have a fully air conditioned entire show. All shows should be inside if the shows want to attract newbies.
