Must not be anybody going this year. Had a great show at Marshalltown. Kinda hoping to hear from some that go to boo. Can some one tell me how big the flea market outside booths are. Bringing some engines for sale.
I was there yesterday, and the swap/flea market, in my opinion, was quite poor. The flea market seems to be gaining in vendors selling canned goods and arts/crafts, while losing engine and tractor parts vendors.
So, I'd like to say the Baraboo Show Flea Market was Outstanding. Something for everybody, as designed I assume. The Spring Swap Meet is where the old Iron shows up, by design I assume. Don't be confused. Spring is Swap Meet, August show Flea Market. ( Helps keep the spouse and kids looking for treasures also )
Great show, Well organized. Should be on everyone's bucket list. Over 200 acres, 27 buildings, Steam Traction Engines working, Prairie Tractors, Tractors, Hit Miss engines, Oil Field engines, Steam Building, Big Engine building, Fuller Johnson Museum, Gas Station Display (awesome). 3 different sawmills - Working. Soooo much more. Brings in Thousands of folks all three days.
Thanks for the pictures Paul. I recognize the tractors shown as I have been around them over the years. Do you know who was listed as the owner of the unrestored one, I think I recognize it and know where it came from but would like to know who the current owner is. Would have been wonderful if we had been able to attend and bring ours there.
