Its a good show I was at the first one and despite the snow storm good turn out of vendors, it was worth the ride just to get out from the winter blahs, you cant compare it to the Sept. Gilbert show its one day and maybe a few vehicles... O&O Scott

I have never been to the Mount Bethel Meet but work about 3 miles from there. I am planning to drive my slat grill to it weather permitting.

Where do you park for this place, their lot is pretty small.

Was there setting up today.
Lots of great stuff on the tables - definitely worth visiting the show!

Don't let the snow keep you away!

Snow impacted some vendors, but they allowed us to expand and fill any empty tables.
Nice venue with easy in and out through double doors back and front. The town plowed the lot early and the roads were OK.

Some hard-to-find stuff, some things you find at every show, and a bunch of nice folks. Food too, by the fire company association!

Personally I went home with a lot less than I went with, but still have lots of stuff. (The BODY BAG sold!!) You missed a pretty good show.

Thanks for the report. Maybe the weather will cooperate next year.
Are there any other shows there?
