Default Finally get to go to Portland!

The stars have aligned and I will get to go to the show in August. Leaving NW North Carolina early on Wednesday and hope to get there early afternoon and will return on Thursday. Although I'm interested in seeing everything there, I am most excited about shopping. I collect antique farm tools such as seeders, planters, hay tools and such. I know the swap area is mostly about engines and tractor parts, so how much farm tool related stuff is there?

Hi,
you will enjoy walking all the dozens of isles of the swap area.
The amount of farming tools, implements, engine & tractor related items, antiques, and all sorts of memorabilia is overwhelming.
There will be a lot of 4 wheel carts moving about the isles so just keep a keen eye on all your sides to stay safe.
Enjoy the show because there is so much to take in.
We usually use 3 days when we travel out there and that's what it takes to soak it all in. ... Don't forget to check out all the engines in the O.F.E.S area they are very impressive!
Enjoy!

Thanks for the info. Just to clarify, I will return to the show on Thursday and stay all day. Then plan to go to a flea market in Washington Courthouse, Ohio on Friday. Really excited and hope the weather is good.
