<< Is the CdO Cirque weekend, with its one day vintage only swap, better for the long term than just a free for all?>>
Actually Tom, the Cirque swap meet is open to anything "used" and bicycle related. I don't enforce that in a heavy handed way so some new stuff is there but the point is made and no shops or manufacturers are supposed to be there dumping their stuff. The one exception is for manufacturers reps who are allowed to sell their samples.
Because Greensboro not near a huge population concentration as in them thar big cities, we just have fewer people attending, period. So it makes the vintage folk more prominent.
