ANNUAL Pate Swap Meet:
Buy and Sell Transportation-Related Items
“The Pate Swap Meet is proud to offer a wide selection of items that can be used to refurbish your vintage or classic car, motorcycle, or other modes of transportation and get it back on the road. Or, perhaps you might see something that will spark your interest in pursuing this unique hobby. For collectors, we have just about anything you can imagine in each of our zones - gas pumps, hood ornaments, vintage signs, gas and oil cans, tools, and so much more.
Whether you are a vendor or a visitor, we invite you to come and participate in 3 days of fun. Happy hunting!”
