It's been many years since I'v been to Hershey Fall show, but I keep in touch with those that do go regularly. I'm told that most prices were out of reason and a lot of items didn't sell because of it. How do you other attenders evaluate this year's show? Appears to me that Face book prices are getting out of hand also. Is all okay in the hobby?

Please use For Sale forums to sell

I thought most prices were high but did manage to buy 4 items that were quite reasonable left Thursday because of the weather so do not know how Friday was

The signs that we sold were in the middle to higher price range. I had a nice, un-restored pedestal air meter asking $1450. and had no interest at all? Sold some high end pumps and bought some good stuff too. It was a great show for us. We did very well on the day it poured all day long. Sales were brisk as a lot of vendors refused to open for fear of water? Paul www.severngaspumps.com

I missed a nice original Wayne 60 on Wednesday morning for $750! No rot, good base, original deco globe holder, that was a nice pump and a steal!

We found some good items cheap too, just gotta walk it all. I loved every mile of it. We walked 16 miles in 2 days!

Here's just a few pics. I took, I was too busy walking and looking. The Bennett was a "dual dispensing" or "dual product" with a hand crank option too.

That globe has NAFTA on it. The third frame has a Texaco/Mobil sign that has been subject of discussion of what it (NAFTA) meant. I am not aware that there was a conclusion. Can anyone tell me what that meant back in the day?
Looks like there were some nice pumps for sale.

First year (I've been going every year since 1974) that I spent my budget in the first hour at the show. Picked up a Southwest 30 and Rapidayton 1420. Prices were all over from very reasonable to absolutely ridiculous. Good stuff sold quickly. Best part of the show was meeting old friends and making new ones.
