A lot is bought and sold on Saturday. Some people only attend Saturday, and don't bother with going Sunday.

So there is a show before the show? It was advertised as Sunday only.

Thanks for taking the time to post the photos, Jim. Does anyone recall who had the Royal Triton Motor Oil sign, and perhaps the price? This sign is in Photo #8 on the first page of this thread. Thank you. John

Thanks. Didn't realize there was an unadvertised early bird buyers day on Saturday for $50 due to the advertised early bird buyers time of 6:30am on Sunday for $20, before the advertised regular admittance of $5 for Sunday at 8am.

Not cool.

Most know every show has a day before set up fee,be you vendor or not.
It's not advertised as well on their main front page,but if you click on the VENDORS button on their flyer tab,it's clearly shown in the bottom right sentence.
..."Saturday Buyer Fee $50.00 per person."

Dealers at any show always get a crack at buying other dealers items before the public. Come on setup day and bring your own stuff to swap or pay the early bird fee. This is a great show with lots of buyer traffic and gas pumps.

When this show first started there was only general admission on Sunday. It was a mad house. Buyers would practically run through the swap meet.
The format evolved over the years to what they have now. Vendors and early buyers on Saturday, early buyers at 6:30 and general admission at 8:00 on Sunday.
