(Open to the public 8:30 am to 1:00 pm)

St. Croix Lutheran Academy

1200 Oakdale Avenue, West St. Paul, Minnesota

The ever-popular Northland Antique Radio Club's annual Fall Swap Meet will be held on November 4, 2017 at St. Croix Lutheran Academy in West St. Paul. Please note that the school has updated its name from St. Croix Lutheran High School to St. Croix Lutheran Academy, which is more appropriate since they teach grades 6 to 12. This will be our 25th year at this location, and the 32nd Fall Swap Meet hosted by the Northland Antique Radio Club.

The event will run the same as in recent years. Please let us know if you have ideas for future meets.

Table rentals, admission tickets and membership renewals will all be handled at the meet. Seller tables are provided by the school and will be rented for $10 each. No advance table reservations. Due to the limited number of tables available, only paid NARC members will be allowed to rent a table and sell. You can join or renew your $12 yearly membership at the meet. Those who register and pay for a table will be admitted at 8:00 AM, allowing them time to haul in merchandise and get set up.

Note: Sellers will have to carry their items a short distance to the swap meet area, so bring a hand truck or small cart if you have anything heavy. The school requests that you please use extra care not to mark the floors with your hand cart and please bring a protective covering for the table.

By 8:30 AM when the buying public is allowed in, there is usually a good crowd waiting and things get busy fast. Admission is FREE for NARC members and only a dollar for non-members. You can expect to find typically 30-35 tables full (plus overflow onto the floor) of vintage radios, speakers, test equipment, literature, tubes, parts and other related items. Free coffee and snacks will be available in the morning, and a lunch of hotdogs, cookies, chips, and pop will be offered later in the morning for three bucks.

Silent auction items will be accepted until noon when the auction ends. Sellers can set a minimum bid, there are no fees, all items are being sold 'as-is', and all settlements take place directly between the buyer and seller. High bidders and owners MUST stay until noon to complete their transactions. NARC is simply providing the means for the auction and assumes no responsibility for seller or buyer actions.

We have the room until 1:00 pm and expect the meet will probably start winding down around noon, giving sellers an hour to pack up.

This is a great chance to liquidate radios you no longer want, and to mingle with fellow club members. See you there!
