Trexlertown antique / classic bicycle swap meet Oct. 5th 2014 report Part 1

    I attended the antique / classic swap meet on Oct. 5th 2014, as usual it was a good time. Tiring , but enjoyable. We arrived at about 5:45 AM to a sea of head mounted flash lights floating around in the dark. There was a thin layer of frost on everything, making all the bikes very cold to the touch. The buying was fast and furious in those early hours. I was able to get a grip of bikes early on, then the sun came up and things settled in. We brought a bunch of stuff to sell and proceeded to set up our spot and serve customers. Lots of old faces and lots of new, nice to catch up with everyone. We took turns walking around shopping and minding our wares. I was able to get a good assortment of items and was happy at the end of the day with the haul. We also sold a bunch of stuff, always good. Enjoy the photos!
