DCP is hosting this event with help from Don’s Camera, the best used camera store in the region.

Whether you’re a professional dealer, full time photographer or just a hobbyist with a spending habit and a closet full of stuff to get rid of then rent a table and come be a vendor. If you just want to sell or trade a few items you can buy a ticket and see what kind of deal you can make with one of the vendors.

Doors open at 10am and close at 4pm. Entry is $5 cash at the door. Kids 12 and under get in free.

Q: Can I sell equipment if I don’t rent a table?
A: Yes, you’re welcome to bring handheld items or a camera bag with gear to sell or trade with a vendor. No rolling carts or loads of gear. That’s what the tables are for.

Q: Are children allowed?
A: Absolutely. Kids 12 and under get in free. This is a great way to let kids see some interesting photo gear. Just be responsible.
