City of Vincent Swap Meet, Mar 17th

Postby HappyHumber » Fri Feb 02, 2018 6:39 pm

As a past seller, I've just received notification from City of Vincent that the autumn installment for this years City of Vincent Swap meet is Saturday 17th March, 2018. Just had a poke around on the CoV website to find an event link; but didn't have much luck.

Once again the event also serves as a fundraiser to the very impressive Bikes For Humanity project.

That'd be today, now like.

Still no information up. Perhaps they'll be leaving this one alone to avoid upsetting the "little folk"

If your into old BMX 's it looked ok. Maybe $5 per stall holder and try and attract some shops to throw up a tent and sell some old stock etc. Sunday instead of Saturday morning might also attract a few more.

I heard a suggestion that sounded good to me. Currently the market/swap meet gets heard about mostly via social media, by the same crowd, who tell each other. If the event were instead promoted via somewhere people are looking to buy/sell used bikes and parts then fresh faces would get to know of the event. Promotion via gumtree was suggested.
