First Look Sale
"First Look Sale" for Renewing Pate Vendors
Traditionally, after the Pate Swap Meet renewal season 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 first-time buyers from the public are contending with existing Pate Vendors often for the same spaces.
As a Repeat of Last Year, We're Offering You a Little Something different As a "Thank-You" To Our Faithful Pate Vendors.
At 12:01 am June 7, 2022, we're going to place all un-renewed Vendor Spaces up for sale to only valid Pate 2023 Vendors who have already renewed their spaces for 2023.
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 2023 edition of the Pate Swap Meet that will be held in our traditional west-side venue 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 2023 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 7th, we will send regular reminders to you to (1) renew your spaces for 2023, and (2) the details on the First Look Sale.
After the special seven-day First Look Sale ends at 12:01 am on June 14, 2022, all unsold "Open" Vendor Spaces will be made available for unrestricted sales to everyone, including the general public.
Use Our Special "Midnight Madness"
Starting at 12:01 am on Tuesday morning June 7th, we will open the phones to help any Pate Vendor who needs assistance with the First Look Sale. We will keep the phones open for as much of the night as needed. Last year, we were still taking phone orders until 5 am.
We'll take a short nap and then open the phones again at 9 am and operate for extended hours into the evening.
To Take Advantage of the Special Pate Vendor Sales Period, You Must Have Already Renewed Your Pate Vendor Spaces for 2023.
