I'm thinking of renting a table to purge a bunch of gear, has anyone here rented a table at a local guitar swap, if so, how well did you do?
Just secured a table for next Saturday. Anyone on the coast come on down and say hello and check out the deals.
This is the first year in the past four years that I won't be sharing a table...
Last year was a bust -- lots of traffic but we barely covered costs. Good luck!!
I plan on attending with some $$ in the pocket just in case something strikes my fancy, but not a lot I really need at this point... How will I recognize your 'store'?
Not really a store, just a guy purging some gear, hopefully. I'll probably wearing my Gibson jacket and will have an '87 Goldtop for sale and a guitar case with built in amp. Or, look for the guy in my pic.
Did you have a store?
Nope, no store, mainly odds & ends as well as a few guitars... As you know it just takes one person to be a buyer!!
Good day today at the show, sold everything except the Goldtop and Minstrel pedal, however a couple of guys took my business card and said they had to ask their wives if they could buy the LP. Not sure how well that will pan out. Lots of people, the place was packed up until about an hour or so before closing where it started to thin out. It looked like most vendors did well.
Was hoping to get there. The weather was too crappy to drive the Sea to Sky highway.
Any pics of the show?
Sorry, didn't get a chance, way too busy from the get go, but they did have a guy wandering around taking pics for the organizers and if my get my hands on them, I'll post them here.
Sorry, to hear that, maybe next year, the organizers have already booked the same place for Nov. 21/20. Some really awesome gear there and great deals.
Got a call from the organizers who have put me in touch with a couple of guys who talked to their wives and want to come over for a second look at the Goldtop.
Sorry to have missed it -- got slammed with a cold/flu early Sat AM, and was bedridden the next 2 days!!
