NE Georgia Swap Meet

August 2

Commerce: NE Georgia Swap Meet. The show gets bigger every month, with between 165-200 vendors; these are actual vendors with parts on the ground, not how many spaces we sold like other swap meets advertise, where vendors need to buy multiple spaces for their set-ups. No chick stuff, no arts-n-crafts stuff, no antiques, or knickknacks: it's a GUYS swap meet, with the rules being "If it's found in a shop, garage or basement, it's welcome." Cars and trucks for sale, motorcycles, parts, tools, shop equipment and supplies, vintage signs, work clothes and t-shirts, mini-bikes, ATVs, go-carts and vintage tractors too if you want to bring them. $5 Spectator entry. FREE parking. Vendor set-up is at 7:00am, gates open to the public at 8:30am, wraps up about 1:30pm after the 50/50 raffle. $20 per vendor vehicle gets you all the space you want - pick-up to semi-truck, all the same. Set up out the back or along the side parallel to the aisle, to spread your stuff out so everyone can see it.
