Our Swap Meets

  What is a New England Antique Radio Club swap meet? Its an antique radio flea market, an old radio sales event, a vintage collectible electronics hobby get-together, .... A great occasion to see, handle, talk about and buy old electronics! Direct face-to-face discussions with individual dealers for getting questions answered, buying that old radio you remember from high school, and sometimes even swapping something with a dealer.

  A swap meet purchase means no boxing & packaging hassles. No shipping & insurance charges. No waiting for any UPS or FedEx deliveries. No "damaged in transit" surprises. You simply take your purchases right out to your own car/van/SUV. A swap meet is good old-fashioned "cash and carry" shopping. (Note: Individual dealers may or may not accept personal checks and/or credit-debit cards; plain old cash always works best!)

  We can not promise all of these things can be found at every swap meet. Each swap meet is unique and has a different mix of interesting old electronics-related items for sale. Our dealers are very ingenious at finding a wide variety of old and not-so-old electronics to sell at their tables. We never know for sure exactly what will appear at any swap meet. Surprises often happen. It's always worth a visit just to see what our dealers have on their tables.
