VCF June 10 Swap Meet Update

Hello everyone,

After careful consideration, looking at the weather forecasts and Air Quality Index, we have chosen to go ahead with our swap meet as planned. We still recommend that everyone wear a high quality mask as a precaution. On the bright side, the temperature is expected to be about 76 degrees with 25% chance of rain. New this year is food for sale in the parking lot by a non-profit firehouse museum.

Vendor setup starts at 7AM and buyers can come starting at 8AM.

We are expecting 50 vendors with 75 spaces and 250 buyers. There was a huge demand for consignment at VCF East 2023 this year, therefore we are expecting a record number of buyers and sellers. Lots of people coming from near and far!

Information is on this webpage:

There is still plenty of spaces available for vendors, who can sign up here:

Thank you everyone for your patience as we evaluated our decision.

See you there on Saturday, June 10, 2023!
