Toowoomba Swap Meet February 5thWhile at Allora swap meet were found out about Toowoomba swap meet on the 5th February. A friend from Townsville rang a few days prior the show and lamb bastered me for not telling him about it. Seems he was coming down for work on the Monday after. He sourced flights etc and rang Friday to say he was down and shopping at Carbatc, Hare and Forbes and Gregorys Machine. He came over late afternoon bearing a cake. Great catching up with Richard.
We organised to meet up on Saturday which we did some time early afternoon at Toowoomba he had been there early gates opened at 6am. Sue and I running late arrived about 8ish.
Acres of stalls so large we only got around 1/6th of the grounds, still we did dodge the auto sellers stalls.
