Default Turlock Swap Meet

A friend of mine who has always been a vendor at the Turlock, Ca. swap meet just got a notice that the January Turlock meet has been cancelled.

Hello TJ,

Thank you for letting me know about this. I live in Hughson (about a 10 minute drive away from the Turlock fairgrounds) and have gone to the Turlock Swap Meet every year for years and years. I was looking forward to going this year but will have to wait until next year (2022) hopefully.

Bruce in Hughson, Ca.

I celebrate my birthday (Jan. 26th) every year by going to the Turdlock swap meet.
I always see folks there that I don’t otherwise see.
Almost always see or learn something that I never forget.
I was planing one trying to sell my ‘48 Nash Ambassado there next year. Oh well.
It will be missed.

Clark Kent drove a Nash Healey convertible in a handful of episodes.

If you are putting on an event this is when you have to start shelling out $$$ for venue rental, advertising, insurance, porta-potties, etc, etc.


With being allowed by health people to have the event very iffy... The right thing to do.
