51th Pate Swap Meet
Special "First Look" Sale for Renewing Pate Vendors
Traditionally, after the Pate Swap Meet renewal period is over, we place all un-renewed spaced up for unrestricted sales to the public on a first-come-first-served basis. Usually, this is the first time existing Pate Vendors know which spaces are available to add more spaces to their Pate Swap Meet footprint. At the same time, new with first-time buyers from the public are contending with existing Pate Vendors often for the same spaces.
We're going to try something a little different this year as a "thank-you" to our faithful Pate Vendors.
At 12:01 am June 15, 2021, we're going to place all un-renewed Vendor Spaces up for sale to only valid Pate 2022 Vendors who have already renewed their spaces for 2022.
We're calling this our "First Look Sale."
The First Look Sale will be open only to Pate vendors who have renewed their spaces for the 2022 edition of the Pate Swap Meet that will be held in our traditional west-side vendue of Texas Motor Speedway. The First Look Sale will last one full week.
Our prices will remain the same as usual during this "Sale" but our renewing Pate Vendors will have special shopping privileges for seven days before we open remaining non-renewing Vendor Space sales to the public.
Before the general public gets to shop for Vendor Spaces in an unrestricted fashion, all Pate Vendors who have renewed their Vendor Spaces for 2022 will have a small window to add new spaces to their Vendor Space footprint.
This special First Look Sale will allow our existing Pate Vendors far better chances of buying adjoining spaces and expanding their contiguous footprint in the swap meet.
During this period, eligible Pate Vendors may purchase additional Vendor Spaces online 24x7 using self-service or over the phone with agent assistance during regular business hours Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.
To buy spaces during the First Look Sale using online self-service, simply go to our online real-time Space Selector, select all of the spaces you wish to add, add them to a Shopping Cart and check out with a credit card or debit card. Our system will automatically add the new spaces to your account. It is easy and painless.
Until June 15th, we will send regular reminders to you to (1) renew your spaces for 2022, and (2) the details on the First Look Sale.
After the special seven-day First Look Sale, at 12:01 am on June 22, 2021, all unsold "Open" Vendor Spaces will be made available for unrestricted sales to everyone, including the general public.
To take advantage of the special Pate Vendor sales period, you must have already renewed your Pate Vendor Spaces for 2022.
So, renew early to not only protect your existing Vendor Spaces but also gain access to this special First Look Sale.
To renew your spaces, click on the button below, log into your Pate Vendor User Account. Click the button shown on the Renew page to add your spaces to a Shopping Cart and then check out.
After you have successfully renewed your Vendor Spaces for 2022, you will immediately get an itemized on-screen receipt for your renewal as well as one that will be e-mailed to you. Also, your "My Spaces" report (available on your "My Account" page) will be instantly updated after the transaction.
In addition to doing your renewals, you can also order your private personal toilets for your spaces at the same time.
