The Annual GCAS SWAP MEET is set for Saturday, February 2, 2019

Please note the new location and updated hours for the Swap Meet this year:

  • For the uninitiated, think of the Swap Meet as a flea market for fish stuff. Fish folks interested in selling their wares buy tables to display their goods, while shoppers peruse the tables for anything ranging from tanks and equipment to fish and plants. In order to simplify our venue vendors, and reduce costs, we will now hold the swap meet at the same location as the auctions.
    ​Harry T. Wilks Conference Center
    **Note the venue change**
    1601 University Boulevard
    Hamilton, OH 45011
    Saturday February 2, 2019
    ​11am-2pm (set-up for vendors starts at 10am)



    ​$30 per 6 foot length of table, or $16 for a half table after December 31, 2018


    $2 admission for buyers, $3 per family (please bring plenty of change for cash purchases)
    How (to pay)
    ​In person at any GCAS event

    ​Mail check to GCAS PO Box 40477 Cincinnati, OH 45240
    ​Pay for and reserve your tables now before they sell out!
