Do they still call these events "swap meets"? I can't remember seeing folks say "I'll swap you for this". <vbg>
Officially it is a record sale which is what will happen in Baltimore (just remember it's just 90 minutes.
Bigger events are usually called (well around Philly) a "Record Show and Sale". It's a show because the dealers "SHOW" their records and hope to make a "sale"/
See ya in B'more.

I hope to bring some records and things… but I don’t want to swap.. is that ok ? I am trying to cull and glean from a collection.. not add… Is that considered bad form to not want to trade ? I hope not. Also, is there a charge for a table?
