    I went a couple of years ago. I had a blast. I thought prices were quite fair and I sold a lot of stuff.

    Almost forgot - I think you also get free admission to the museum with the bike show entrance. There are a few old ordinaries in the basement, along with the Anderson's amazing early car collection. The cars on rotating exhibit on the first floor can be breathtaking.

    I'll definitely be going to this, especially considering it's about 1 mile up the hill from my house, and right near the pool that my family joins each year.

    Maybe if a good number of folks plan on showing up, we could have a spontaneous grill party, local ride or dinner out.
