I'm curious about one aspect of the show. What is the Swap and Smoke and how is that different than the Exhibition Halls? What happens at the Swap and Smoke?
1. It takes place in the smoking tent, thus the 'smoke'. 2. Sellers pay a smaller fee, can only take up half a table, and must rotate out after a couple hours.

So it's some the same stuff you'll see inside the big show, but also smaller collections and sometimes bargin stuff. Closer to a flea market than an exhibition.

Wow, there's been some heavy duty planning invested in this event. I can tell by the level of detail discussed. Like a wedding, all the work will tell as the show unfolds, and it sounds like it will run smoothly on the back of all this work.

I'm not in a position to travel, but I'll be interested to hear about the event. It should be great.

The buy, sell, swap, is on Friday. It costs $20 for a half table for those wishing to sell.

Hi there, I’m wondering if there is someone I can speak to by phone regarding some details about the show?
I'd be willing to chat with you but prefer not to post my phone number on the thread. PM me and we shall see what we can do.
