What Happened to the Flea Market?
I've noticed that the last couple national rallies have been missing what used to be a standard feature, the flea market. When I could not find it last year, I asked someone and was told they were now required to buy booth space, which basically killed the flea market, as the expense of a booth could not be covered by any profit they make on the goods they have for sale. I understand that some may have skirted buying a booth by selling new items from the flea market, but those people should be kicked out of the flea market instead of killing the whole thing. The flea market was a valuable part of the rally for people with older bikes who were searching for certain items to complete their bikes, and it should be re-instituted for the next rally.
