|How much is it to get in? Is it worth going? What kind of things are available? Can I bring a couple little things to sell?|

|I forget the price to get in. Cheap. You'll save much more. You can't swing a worn-out chain without hitting a bargain.
Bikes of all vintages. Last year's used racing equipment, or ancient retro stuff. New stuff that the dealers have too much of. Stock from closed shops being sold off cheap. Clothing, tools, parts. Junk and treasures.
Last year, I bought a pair of retro wheels for $40 for the pair, brakes for $2, plus handlebars, stem, and brake levers for $2. Picked up a very rare Schwinn saddle for $5, old Schwinn chainwheel for the cruiser (identical to the original) for $5. Jersey for $10 (new).
Sellers are supposed to rent a spot, and most people are just buying. However, wspokes (posts on the Retro forum) and one other poster on this forum, have spots. Maybe you could talk them into selling the items for you.
