First Swap Meet of 2014 for Kansas City Area this Saturday - no charge to sell

So I am not Bike America's biggest fan in KC but twice a year they do something great, free to sellers swap meets in their parking lot at 95th and Nall In Overland Park, KS.

I have been going to this for several years along with their fall swap, and the El Torreon Swap mid summer (which is a pay seller setup), and it typically is a pretty good time. A lot of garage mechanics come out with their latest winter project creations for sale. I just wanted to throw it up here that if you live around KC area somewhere, it is typically worth your time.

If you want to know what sells well, it's parts and cheap college bikes, but you usually see a little bit of everything and Bike America, which has a habit of purchasing out inventories of failed bike stores in KC, usually sells off a bunch of stuff too.

Just thought I would let people know, I will be there with a friend in either a Silver Honda Element or hanging out by my buddies White Toyota Pickup.

I've made the El Torreon Swap several times, but won't be in the area for this one.

Shame, as it sounds like fun!

El torreon is the best swap in kc. This one isn't ever quite as big but the weather is nice and price is right to sell. Usually Bike America will be pretty cool with some free food too.
