Hamburg held its 47th annual Swap Meet and Car Corral over the weekend at the Hamburg Field House. The weather may have deterred the usual number of attendees and even vendors, but those that were there left with at least one find at the show. Set up both outside and inside, vendors displayed some unique finds and had many attendees pass by and stop for a second look.

“Here’s a pile of stuff,” said Fred Kiszat, of Kempton. “How could you go wrong?”

Deals were easily found at the meet and were announced throughout the day.
