Jon, you were just a day late for the vintage display and most of us CR type vendors. Listmembers Ted Trembley and Chris Icomedes had quite a number of nice bikes and further individual display bikes were brought by a number of listmembers. Who had the display of all the Schwinns ? There were a few CR Type vendors who hung out till Sunday but I think the rest of us pulled out by 4PM on Saturday. I think the selling day was Saturday while Sunday the vendors left over looked to buy out the other sellers there. Vince Cassica and his brothers had a stack of everything from NOS Campy to Medici decals. You know Vince as ''Buycycle911'' on Ebay. Listmember Brian Blum again set the record for how many boxes of parts you could get in a Ford Focus. There were losts of buyers looking for stuff to resell on Ebay. I sold most of my quill type stems in the first 2 hours What I though was interesting was the South Hall which was for Vendors like Bike Shops looked dull while the North Hall and its ''Swappers'' was quite lively I hope they do it again next year but with additional organization (and maybe something else to eat other than hot dogs and nachos)
