Thumbs up GWAS Swap Meet - March 23rd

Greenwater Aquarist Society is having a Swap Meet!

Sunday, March 23rd
10:00am-2:00pm


Apollo Recreation Center
12521 S. Kostner
Alsip IL 60803

Entry fee:
$3 for individuals or $5 per family



Greenwater Aquarist Society’s fourth Annual Swap will be held March 23th 2014. The swap will run from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm, doors will open at 8:00 am for vendor set up. Buyers will be allowed in at 10:00 am.

Entry fee is $3.00 for an individual or $5.00 for a family. The swap will be held at Alsip Park District’s Apollo Park facility, 12521 Kostner Ave, Alsip Il, 60803. A map can be found at gwasoc.org on the registration form. We are open for table reservations now, please contact Steve at stevelist13@yahoo.com or you can call 815-534-5288.

For sellers, each 8-foot table is only $20, and once again the swap will be held at Alsip Park District’s spacious Apollo Park facility, 12521 Kostner Ave, Alsip Il, 60803. Please let us know if you need electric. We request that there are no more than 2 sellers at one table, no more than 30 gallons of filled tanks total on each table, and any filled tank larger than 30 gallon be provided with its own stand.

This year we will be offering half tables for $15. This allows the newer seller who may have fewer items an affordable starting point. We will get a list going of half table purchases so if you see someone on the list you would like to share a table with, feel free to ask.

Please provide a list of what you have to sell with your reservation and we will post it on our website. A list of vendors and their merchandise can be found at gwasoc.org We will also have table space “free of charge” for clubs to display their information on, (no items will be sold at these tables).

Yeah, I can see that. The Swap is smaller, but still worth checking out

Its a lot smaller than GCCA and isn't cichlid based like GCCA. There seem to be more people selling plants than GCCA as well. There is a shrimp guy at this one as well who primarily sells CRS (all grades I believe).

They only have this swap once a year so it's hard to go off of memory. Check out their website as I believe they have photos posted of their previous swaps.

This will be the first swap I've attended. I'm so excited! Definitely can't wait to get my hands on some live food cultures!
