I would like to go, but feel like something always comes up. In this case, I mistakenly scheduled a doctor appointment for yesterday.

Maybe I will see some of you at the Chicago Winter swap.

No way!



That's very nice. Looks like one of the B.Carre ones.

I did not find the big stuff I was looking for, but got a lot of little stuff. It was fun though. Then survived Costco, my price for my wife letting me go...

Had a table but honestly went to buy. Saw most of the usual suspects from Chicago area and southern Wisconsin. Bought quite a lot and sold enough to pay the space rent. Bought this orphan drive side Sugino Super Mighty w/60-47 Stronglight drillium rings and a set of Sunshine Pro Ams at bargain prices.

They actually glow now despite my photography skills. Sellers said they were built up but never used

I went with a friend to clear out a bunch of stuff from his attic and basement. We had 3 tables and 3 people working. The Campy table I was doing was 50% cleared by the official opening time of 10:00. By the time we left at 2:00 we had sold most of the stuff we had with 1/2 a table left. Roger
