Dingo, you do need to register a space to sell at the show. There whole purpose of a swapmeet is to sell your excess stuff at an organized event. Pual and Ann Kleppert spend a lot of time and money to produce a show of this quality. The spaces are very reasonable. Please consider contacting Paul if you're interested in a space, you won't regret it. If you get an outside space, it's a 20x20 and your trailer can be backed right into it. Sell off your trailer or leave the stuff on it.

I know that in the past there have been a few individuals who have tried to sell stuff in the parking lot. I feel this is a slap in the face of everyone associated with the swapmeet. We don't need this type of stuff going on and possibly destroying one of the greatest events for our hobby. I'm not sure what may be done to those who get caught, but if it was my gig .... I wouldn't hesitate to allow the boys in blue to run an escort service off of the property. I know this may sound kinda extreme, but I'm aware of what it takes to pull an event like this off.

So grab a space and bring your goodies! If you'd like to hang with us Freaks, just request it on your registration form and Paul will try to accomodate. Also try to get your registration in as soon as possible, the spaces go fast.

What's really nice about the Ann Arbor/Saline bike show is that it's only costs $3 to get in. There are so many bikes... you name it and it'll most likely be there. Hundreds of Krates riding around. Oh man I can't wait. :mrgreen:

Here is the link to the Ann Arbor Bicycle Show website:

And also, just wondering... should this topic be moved under "BIKE EVENTS"?

Dahh...
Cant afford the $40 Vendor fee...

Ill talk to the man who may be handling the trailer...

What if i leave it unatended(the stand)

hows that poor mans auction going to go?
Why do i know nothing about this show?
Dingo, could you get someone to go in on it with ya? Some of our guys share their spaces with each other. If I hear of anyone needing a "Space Buddy", I'll pass it on to you.

When you ask about leaving the stand, do you mean so you can go look around? We break up into groups so everyone gets some "looking/spending time". Maybe you could bring a couple of friends to help out or if you're next to us, maybe we could watch over your stuff for a few minutes.

Not too sure about the poor man's auction. I'm usually looking somplace else or at our booth.

Ann Arbor is very well known in the bike hobby, but like car swapmeets, the industry doesn't always support something that they feel takes money outta there pockets. There are a few bike dealerships that go there but most are clubs or individuals that love bicycles.

For you or anyone else gowing there, be sure to check out Petri and Sons (Don and Deb)booth, House of Wheels (Rick)booth and Cycle Works ( Eric) if he has one. All three of the dealers heavily support the custom bike hobby and are more than willing to hear any of our crazy ideas!

Hope this answers some of your questions. Don't be afraid to contact Paul with any questions, He's always been there to answer mine and I've had some really stupid ones! :lol:

Good luck,
Chainy

Woohoo! I sold the World Tourist today for $100 to a very nice couple. That means more cash for the "I-need-some-parts-for-my-Schwinn-Predator-fund" at the Ann Arbor Bike Show. :mrgreen:
