Never been to one of these, but plan to go to this one. Is there a preferred method of payment for swap meets? Cash?

Cash usually. Also, be prepared to be overwhelmed if this is your first time going to one of these

I suggest coming with extra cash, I always end up wanting to buy more then I planned on buying. I always have a plan too, if you find something you like a lot of guys will put your name on it so you will be sure you won't miss out. http://www.gcca.net/classifieds/view...st-ads/all_ads And yes overwhelmed is a under statement, especially the venue this year, it is very crowded. I miss the place off of the elgin Ohare in I think it is considered Itasca, it had room to walk around.

Its coming up this weekend! I'm stoked! Can't wait!

Anyway, there will be a Meet & Greet before the doors open at the Meeting Spot in the Parking Lot Swap thread. I plan on getting there at 9ish if anyone wants to meet up
