Astronomical Swap Meet - November 18, 2007


Join us for SJAA’s annual astronomical swap meet on Sunday afternoon, November 18, 2007. It will again be held in our regular meeting room at Houge Park in San Jose. (See our web site for directions: The doors open at noon for sellers to set up, selling starts around 1 PM and generally lasts until 3 or 4 PM. Don’t be too late, the good stuff sells quickly.

If it’s related to astronomy, you might find it here! Telescopes, binoculars, eyepieces, mounts, mirrors, lenses, clock drives, books, camera equipment, star charts, finders, tubes, diagonals, photographs, space art... you name it. You never know what goodies you can find. Check your garage and closets for anything astronomical you would like to sell. Anyone can buy and sell, it’s fun and easy! Get your holiday shopping done early this year!

There is no table fee nor an entrance fee. The SJAA asks a 10% donation on all sales, more if you feel generous. This is a club fund raiser after all. The SJAA is a 501(c)3 corporation, donations are tax deductible.

Do you have only one or two items to sell? A consignment table will be there for your convenience. We’ll handle it for you, so you can go shop at the swap and not have to sit there with just a couple of items. Please, no more than three items per seller. Please be available for any questions or bargaining.

Part of the swap’s success depends on people knowing about it. So, pass the word especially to those who are new to astronomy.

Questions may be e-mailed to The SJAA reserves the right to turn away illegal or inappropriate items for the swap.
