The 8th annual antique machinery Swap Meet and Flea Market sponsored by the LeSueur County Pioneer Power Association was held April 28th at the fairgrounds in LeCenter, Minnesota. A record 220 vendors showed up to trade or sell their wares and the weather cooperated perfectly. Our swap meet has always been held on the last Sunday in April, and speaking of the weather, it has ranged from 85 degrees in the shade to an all-out snow storm on our 1984 meet and by the time that Sunday night was over 8-10 inches of wet snow had fallen and miles of power lines had also fallen with electricity not being restored in some areas for up to five days. Many people will remember that trip home from LeCenter for years to come.

Vendors from 7 states and Canada, made up our 1975 meet. People usually start arriving Saturday evening and early Sunday morning to get an early start for the one day of brisk selling and buying. A few prices for items sold are as follows: 1936 CC Case on steel and running $450.00; Associated high mag brass bottom $165.00; MM J steel fronts $300.00; JD 1 cart only $250.00; JD W power unit restored $1500.00; JD B rear steel $375.00; cast iron corn planter lids $20.00; 15-30 International engine $100.00; 1 HP Ideal gas engine, restored $650.00.

We hope more of you can join us for our 1986 Swap Meet held rain or shine hopefully not snow.
