SJAA 2002 fall swap meet


The SJAA swap meet will be conducted at Houge Park in San Jose Sunday November 10, 2002 at 1:00 p.m.

Telescopes, eyepieces, mountings, mirrors, lenses, clock drives, books, camera equipment, star charts, finders, tubes, diagonals, photographs, space art — everything you need to make your hobby more enjoyable. You name it, it's likely to be there! Check your garage and closets for anything astronomical you would like to sell. Anyone can buy and sell! It's fun and easy! This is the second year for the swap, which is follow on to the spring auction that has been run for twenty-two years. There is no auction, just the swap sale. Get your holiday shopping done early this year! Joe Sunseri of Earth and Sky Adventures is expected to be there with many fine new and used items.

Doors open at 12:30 a.m. to set up tables and bring in material for sale. Selling will begin at 1 p.m., and will run as long as needed (probably 3 p.m.). Each buyer pays the seller. Sellers are to keep track of their sales and pay 10% commission (fully tax deductible), with a cap of $50 for any one item, $500 maximum per seller. There are no table fees. Please bring items that would interest the astronomical audience such as astronomical stuff, science items, and tech items. The SJAA reserves the right to turn away inappropriate items for the swap.

Do you have a large item to sell such as a telescope? Please email with a description and a photo of the item or a link to your own website for some pre-swap publicity.
