Masi Swap Meet October 6 2012

Well folks! It's time to start thinking about the October Swap Meet. Last year was great and I hope to make this one even better. You should start thinking ahead on getting your fish or fish stuff ready to sell. I have change a few things so make sure you look below. One of those big changes is that we moved this to a Saturday. I had a huge number of people telling me they would have made if it was on a Saturday. I think this is good for the out of town people. I know myself how it is to drive home on a Sunday to put away fish and get up early for work. It's not fun! However this is a trial run this year. Keeping checking the post, I'm working on getting donation for this and as I get them I will post them.

MASI Swap Meet
Gardenville Masonic Hall
8230 Gravois Road Affton, MO 63123

October 6, 2012
11am to 3:00 PM
Admission $2 per person, children under 10 free!

New this year:

New start time. 11am, Last year we had a dozen people wanting to come in at 11am.

$5 early bird gets you in one hour early before the doors open.

No half tables this year, I only had one last year so I think its safe to stay with full tables. Also had a few people
back out at the last second this time you will need to pay early. No refunds will be given back unless it is two weeks before the
date of the swap. This will give me time to fill your space.

Got extra fish? Too much Java Moss? Java Fern growing out of the tank? Sell ‘em! Got an extra tank in the attic or basement? Sell it!
Clean out the extra stuff in your fishroom or closet!

You can sell anything “fishy” or hobby related!
Fish, plants, tanks, equipment, books, magazines, foods, decorations, collectibles and more!

Tables are just $20 each. Space is limited, so sign up early!

We’ll also gladly accept 100% donations to be sold at the MASI table.
