" There is a tailgate
swapmeet here in Mpls/St. Paul this weekend as
" Pickings have been
pretty slim the last couple of years for
" (to me) gear. Hopefully
I'll sell more than I take home :-)

is this annual? i'll be in the twin
cities about this time next year.
Yup. It's always the first Saturday in June. It's held at the 3M campus
off of
I-94 east of downtown St. Paul.

Here's the website- you can sign up for their

This one
and the Midwinter Madness (which is actually in early spring)
are about the
only two surviving swaps up here. Much smaller and less
variety than the
hey-day of the early/mid 90's. 

Granted, who knew then what we know today,
but gone are the days of
picking up Apple Lisas for $25.00 and gaggle of 6
NeXT Cubes with all
the goodies for $200.00 :-) I sometimes wonder what of
today's "digital
dirt" will end up being gold 20 years on from now...
