I'm not sure what shows/swaps have been canceled and which are going to be held. Any interest in a small swap meet sometime in the June/July timeframe? It would probably be in my backyard (I had no luck trying to find a place before), hopefully warmer than two years ago, and hopefully with more buyers than sellers.

Madison was cancelled until 2022. Harper was cancelled until 2022.

I'm all in for Evanston 2021. Getting my second jab this week.

Don't have much of value, but have a lot I am looking for! Depending on day, would love to stop by!

I've yet to settle on a couple dates. Still need to work around some family/travel issues.

I'd attend. In June, I'd hope it will be warm enough to ride my bike to your place. I'd probably be a viewer more than a buyer; not a seller.
