2022 HAAS Summer Swap - August 13, 2022 - 11AM-2PM


Staff member

The HAAS Spring Swap is coming. Want to sell some of your fish or aquatic supplies? Here are the details to participate!

Sellers - Tables are $20 each with each extra table being $15 for casual sellers. Membership does have its privileges! HAAS Members are $15 for the first table and $10 for each additional! If you are unsure of your membership status, email me at michael@meyer.net.

This is like a garage sale (or group of garage sales) where the sellers just rent a table from HAAS. We will help advertise to get buyers to the HAAS Swap and you get to wheel and deal however you want on your items! We will collect the "table rent" money at the event.

You can sell anything aquatic (that is legal in the state of Missouri). You will be responsible for making your own transactions, so let folks know how you can accept payments (Cash, PayPal, Venmo, Cashapp or Bitcoin. HAAS will have our own table where you can donate an item to the club or turn in your BAP items. But we stay out of everyone else's business transactions. Sellers can register for a table by emailing michael@meyer.net or call/text me at 913.568.4014. I will list out those with tables and a short list of what they will be specializing in or bringing to the event below in this thread and I encourage everyone to list or post pictures of their items on here as well!

Sellers, you will get separate directions on when you can set up. If you have questions email or call/text me at 913.568.4014

Buyers - Free entry! But you will have to check in! Swap is from 11AM to 2 PM for the buyers. Gashland Presbyterian Church. Keep checking the forum to see what people are bringing.

This is a great fun event where you can mingle and talk fish all you want. Good luck to our sellers selling your wares and good luck to buyers on picking up new fish, plants and equipment!

Our response to our swap sale is doing so much better than I expected. We already filled up our regular layout, so we have increased the size of our layout by 25%. There are currently 7 spots left with some folks already thinking about it. This is looking to be a great event. Mark it on your calendars so you don't forget. If you have been thinking about reserving a table act soon. You don't want to be left out. See everyone in a couple weeks at the Big HAAS Summer Swap Sale.

I'll try to make some signs beforehand to close off the entrance next to Randy's tables. Last time we had some confusion as to which entrance was the main entrance.

Thanks to everyone for making our swap a spectacular event. It was by far our best attended swap that we have done since I have been with the club which plus years! Thanks to everyone for planning, prepping, participating and cleaning up after for this event. There are a lot of people involved and I want to thank everyone! Special shout out to all the new sellers. I hope you had a great time and not only sold stuff but got to mingle with a lot of fishy friends. Feel free to reach to me if you have any questions or comments. I hope to be in better health next year so I can bring more items to sell. Feel free to comment on here with what you picked up at the swap. I got some of Walter's Placidochromis Phenochilus "Star Saphire" cichlids, some Albino Kribs from Randy, and some gorgeous Tri-Color swordtails from Charles Gibbons. I am pretty stoked with a 3 of these purchases! What all did you get at the swap?

Sounds like a successful day to me. I picked up a couple of super reds from Jack Taylor, 3 black Venezuelan Cory’s from Charles Gibbons, and 10 albino Cory’s from the guy who was next to Jack (he did not have a name on his table.) They all look great 30 hours in. I also picked up quite a few plants from Randy, Anique, Matthew Metz, and some equipment from the HAAS table and Randy.
