Spring & Fall Gear Swaps
Spring Gear Swap
This year's Spring Gear Swap, a fundraiser for the Ski Tigers nordic ski racing team, will take place Saturday, April 13, 2013 at Houghton High School's multi-purpose room (cafeteria) from 10 am to 12:30 pm.
Sellers can check in their items on Friday (April 12) from 5:00 to 7:30 pm, or Saturday morning 8:45 to 9:45 am. Sales begin at 10 am and end at 12:30 pm. Sellers pick up unsold items and/or payment from 1 to 2 pm.
The annual sale is a great place to recycle outdoor equipment by buying and/or selling. Buyers find great bargains on used gear. Sellers pay just 15 percent commission per item for the convenience, with a maximum of $50 commission per item regardless of price.
The swap usually features lots of cross country skis and sometimes a few alpine skis and snowboards; a good selection of boots, poles and other ski accessories; a variety children's and adult bikes along with bike tools, parts and car racks; camping gear like tents and backpacks; a big selection of outdoor clothing; sometimes kayaks, canoes and boating equipment; soccer cleats, ice skates and other sports equipment; and other items that help us play outside and enjoy life in the Keweenaw.
The ski team will also glide-wax skis for summer storage -- $10 for nordic, $15 for downhill and boards.
