October 10th, 2021 Swap Meet

WARCI is looking forward to seeing you at our Milwaukee swap meet – the last swap meet of the year!

The weather forecast for tomorrow keeps changing. We’ve formulated a weather contingency plan for tomorrow.

Like our September meet, we have the option to move indoors if rain is in the forecast. I know that some of our members and attendees have a strong preference for staying outdoors, so when we arrive at 7AM we will check the weather and decide if the meet is going to be indoors or outdoors.

If the meet is outdoors, we will set up outside at the Landmark, and pizza/bathrooms/bar services will be open there. If it is indoors, the meet will be held in the Terminal building (doors open at 8AM). Either way, you’ll have the option to sell outdoors if you prefer.

Please refer to the photo for a layout of our two usual meet setups for the Landmark/Terminal buildings:

The general public is always welcome, and admission is FREE!

The gates open at 8:00 AM for setup. The flea market starts at 8:00 AM, announcements are held at 10:30 AM followed by the donation auction. Each meet will vary slightly, so check out the monthly flyer for more information!

As typical of most swap meets, the items are for sale by individual collectors, and most are one-of-a-kind. So for best selection (and the best deals), BE EARLY! But please stay around and get to meet some of the club members. These swap meets are a great way to connect with other local collectors that share your interests. By socializing at the meets you can find others that may have what you are looking for, radios & parts, people that can service your radios, and you can make some good friends.

Swap meet spaces are $10 per seller. WARCI membership is required to sell ($18/year, membership available on-site or https://warci.org/join/). Tables are not provided, most sellers sell out of the back of their cars or bring a tarp or folding table to sell on.

The health and safety of our members is our first priority. With that in mind, we’ve enacted the following guidelines for our 2021 meets to ensure that WARCI is providing the safest event possible:

  • Wear Your Mask: In keeping with CDC guidelines, WARCI recommends wearing a mask if you are not fully vaccinated.
  • Practice Social Distancing: Skip the handshake! Keep 6ft between you and other swap meet participants whenever possible.
  • Hand Sanitizer Provided: WARCI will provide hand sanitizer at meets to encourage good hygiene.
  • Use Common Sense: If you are feeling sick or believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID, please remain at home.

WARCI will continue to monitor COVID statistics and adjust the 2021 swap meet schedule as necessary. Stay tuned to www.warci.org for updates.
