Being ever so elated about the incredible turn out we had this past weekend, I'm finally settling down to post some photos of the occasion, in the hopes that someone else who had more time to snap some photos during the swap will do the same!

This first photo shows a small clique of the attendees gathering around Ken Gardner's table inside the garage. We built the garage a year and a half ago, and we figured it would make a good contingency plan in the event of rain, as it is quite sizable. Some people set up inside, fearing bad weather later on in the day - however, as luck would have it, the rain held off almost exactly until pack-up time! I can only hope for weather as it has been the past 3 swaps in years to come!

From left to right: Kevin Kidd (Keswick, Ont.), Shawn Long (Windsor, Ont.), Randy Strong (Peterborough, Ont.), Ken Gardner (Orangeville, Ont.), Paul Axman (Guelph, Ont.), and one of the famous Banks Brothers, who have attended all three years of the show thus far! All of the collectors in the photo are from Ontario, and most are regulars at most of the swaps held in Ontario.
