Subject: [midatlanticretro] Swap Meet Tips - Plan Now for October 7th.
Wilmington Vintage Computer Swap Meet
ANYONE PLANNING TO BE AT THE EVENT EARLY (BEFORE 10AM Sat or Friday) PLEASE
CONTACT ME TO COORDINATE LOAD IN. ASSISTANTS WANTED.
I (BIll D) plan to work on set up Friday and I already have a lot of items
stored at my office down the street for easy transport.
Here are some tips for the Wilmington intage computer swap meet this
Saturday Oct 7th:
-Bring a dolly/cart.
*-Almost everyone who attends the event will have the opportunity to take
something home with them.
*-This is a good event to trade, buy and sell items that are heavy (like
printers and monitors), or are fragile like S-100 systems.
*-You're not allowed to leave any items behind! No exceptions.
*-Do not assume that your donation will be accepted by MARCH, there may not
be room to take everything.
-=Make it worth your trouble
*-If you're going to take the trouble to cart a bunch of stuff to the
swapmeet, you might as well clean it to maximize it's sale/trade value.
*-Parts are great, but also bring some good working items that you have
doubles of; you don't want to regret not bringing something to bargain with,
especially if you don't have a lot of cash.
*-If possible be prepared to identify and discuss the operational status of
the items you're selling (or ask someone to help).
*-If you're trying to sell an entire system, include the software/power
*- If you're not going to burn the place down, set up the item and power it
-=The Auction: 2:30
-. The best/clean/working/complete/boxed items will be selected for the
-.Anyone can participate in the auction as a buyer or seller - please ask if
you want to include your item in the auction.
-. We're going to wait until the day of the event to select the items for
the auction, so potentially any item can be auctioned. See the swapmeet
-. You can also sell/trade items that are scheduled for the auction.
If a scheduled item is sold/traded the item will simply be removed from the
final list. This way sellers have two ways to sell their items.
