The WAMS Swap meet is one of the oldest and largest swap meets and auctions in the southwest.
The WAMS 2014 Swap meet and auction will be:
Friday, March 14th and Saturday the 15th, 2014
Reserved Table Vendors get special early access for setup. Reserved Vendor tables are $17 each
per day Non-reserved tables are $12
but do not get early entry and setup access. We almost sold out last year (hint, hint)
Our 2014 swap meet will be even bigger and better than ever. We've
added more vendor space and more areas to browse.
Non-reserved tables are "catch as catch can" and we can't guarantee that a space will be available. That's why we recommend that you reserve your table if you are going to attend as a vendor.
Entry fee is
$7.00 for adults each day and free for children under 12. Non-reserved table rental
is $12 per day. Concessions are available both days with sandwiches, hot
dogs, soft drinks and other foods.
On Friday, we start the setup at 5:00 PM with a great swap/trade night for the modeling enthusiasts. (Reserved Table vendors get access at 4:30 pm, everyone else at 5:00 pm) Some of the best deals are made on Friday which runs until 9:00PM. You may leave items over night in the building.
Saturday we start at 8:00AM and go until the last radio is raffled off after the auction which is around 3:30 - 4:00. Auction starts about Noon. Many hours of great deals and trades. Even if you don't need anything this event is something just to observe. You see things about modeling you did not know about or had not seen is many years. Also, a Security Patrol is provided while the meet is in progress.
Saturday auction starts at noon, and goes until we run out of items. WAMS collect a 10% sellers fee if the item is sold. No charge for no sales. Items can only be auctioned once. We except items for auction up to the time it starts. We auction in order that the items are received. So, if you need to leave early or need money to bid on another item register your item early.
We have always had great radios to raffle because people like winning one and for a small investment you could go home with a new 6 channel radio. There are 2 radios raffled off. The first goes at the start of the auction. The second goes after the auction is over. Every paid admission ticket includes an entry into the drawing for a Futaba radio. You need not be present to win. Additional tickets for the drawings are available for $1.00 each or 12 tickets for $10.00.
