Stop and save westminster MD Swap meet 2016 CALL

Ok guys, we are like 4 weeks for the next super big westminster swap meet for 2016.

We are thinking in getting a large table for the 2016 event, so this call is for the "USUAL SUSPECTS" that have shared a table with us before, as usually happens we cant (rob and me) find a single email with phone numbers or even names, so please PM us ok?

If somebody else wants to hook up with us and want to be part of the table, just let us know.

Thanks!!!

Don't know where the OP lives, but Westminster is in Orange County, California, a few miles east of Long Beach.

Are you sure Westminster isn't in England? Wherever it is, the post probably doesn't belong here.

PM sent,

Event info here: STOP SWAP AND SAVE | The East Coast's Largest Indoor Bicycle Swap And Consumer Bike Expo

I would also be interested in sharing a table with anyone who wants a partner....if you have a table and want to share, please pm.

By the way, a did a cursory exam of the event flyer and didn't see anything about the "bike corral" Anyone have any info on this?

I wasn't referring to the meet, just saying where a Westminster is.

The OP was playing games in response to the question about location, so I stirred the pot to see what came up. It worked by getting someone (you) to finally say where the swap meet was.

When I think of Westminster, I think of the UK ... it's the only one I'm familiar with.

Sounds like a cool event to go to, but a 4 hour drive for me.....it's winter and not much else to do!

Okane, forwarded your contact info.

Regarding the corral, no idea because honestly we dont take bikes but the people we had shared the table with did. But usually there's enough room in front of the table for one bike or two you know, last year took my 2 kids bicycles and sold them before the show started to another seller. Just wanted them out of the house, so I did not ask too much for them.

Yes is in MD, not that hard to google stop and save westminster 2016, it will pop right up Show is quite big in the east coast, surprise me that some havent heard of it because every year you see 2 or 3 threads about it. Meet really nice forum people in the event, the other thing is that maybe 50% of the sellers is always the same people so there's always something to talk about during the day, plus the occasional beer sharing too

Yep, I'm sharp as a stick some days. Yesterday was a *non-example*

The show is always fun, especially in the dead of winter. Sometimes I stock up on consumables, or anything that catches my eye. You can find some good deals if you look, but some things are hit-or-miss.

I've been posting about my search for my first road bike. Would this be a good place to look for a bike from dealers & used ones also?

Sure. As long as you know what you are looking for (size, specs).

Ok, tables are gone, this is really weird... san valentines day and usually you were able to find tables a like a week before the event, now they are gone...

Since robertown and me are w/o a table I was wondering if anybody can share a table with us? we are not heavy sellers so we wont take that much room either.

Citoyen du Monde??? you there???

I won't have anything to sell, I just need to get in early and have a place to park purchases while I buy. I have a shiny old school Campy FD as a buy in.

My local club, the Hanover Cyclers, has a table reserved and I hope to sell some stuff. Stop by and say hello!

That's Hanover, Pennsylvania... not Hannover, Germany. :-)
