What is a Swap Meet?

CAFE provides a venue for buyers and sellers to gather and purchase or “swap” aquarium-related dry goods and live stock. Anyone wishing to sell can purchase table space and bring any aquarium-related live stock or dry goods they wish to sell. Anyone wishing to buy simply needs to show up with some spending money and a couple hours worth of free time. All sales made are between seller and buyer only. CAFE does nothing more than provide the space for everyone to gather.

Sellers, purchase your table on-line

  • Tables will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Tables can be purchased online, by mail, or in person at the February meeting. Since tables are first come, first served, we HIGHLY recommend purchasing a table well in advance to guarantee your space.
  • If there is inclement weather table fee will be refunded, so there is no risk to register.
  • Sellers are welcome to sell fish, plants, invertebrates and dry goods (all offerings must be legal for sale in the state of Ohio).
  • No more than two people are allowed to sell at any table.

Buyer Guidelines

  • The Swap Meet opens Noon.
  • Admission to the Swap Meet is FREE.
  • Any purchases made are private transactions between Buyer and Seller. Unlike our auctions, CAFE will NOT be screening each item before it is sold and assumes no responsibility for the quality or condition of any goods or live stock purchased at the swap meet; Caveat Emptor. We anticipate quality or condition will not be an issue with sellers, however we can make no guarantee as to the quality or condition of any of the items for sale.

If you have any further questions or seek clarification of any of the above rules, please contact us
and let us know.
