We opened the doors Sunday morning to a record vendor registration of over 90 vendors occupying 120 spaces. The days leading up to the Swap were tense as this count was beyond our routine capacity. Several alternatives were explored, to include renting a third building and also “trading” buildings with the Toy Show group. In the end, the best solution was to redraw our traditional layout and squeeze a few more spots into our existing buildings.
This year’s vendors came from as far east as Pennsylvania and as far west as Kansas. The surrounding states of Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Minnesota were also represented. Well known vendors included:
Little British Car Co, Triple-C, University Motors, Burt Levi, Riverside Motors, NAMGBR, AMGBA, and more. All the local British Car clubs also staffed club booths.
