Ka-ching! Cash register swap meet

The Cash Register Collectors Club will have their semi-annual outdoor swap meet and club meeting on Thursday, April 2, 2009 in St. Charles, Ill.

The swap meet will take place in the back parking lot of the Holiday Inn Express at 1600 East Main St., and is open to the public.

The swap meet is the largest get-together in the world of antique cash register collectors. It will begin at noon and be over at 3 p.m. or later. The swap meet will be done tailgate style. You park your car in the parking lot and sell your antique cash registers and cash register parts from your car or next to your car.

Each year this event gets bigger and attracts more and more buyers and sellers. It is also lots of fun as grown men, women and young adults move around the parking lot haggling over prices and swapping great stories about the one that got away. Everyone has a good time.

Later that evening the club holds its meeting in The Holiday Inn Express conference room starting at 6 p.m. There will be refreshments at the end of the meeting. There will also be a show and tell period at the conclusion of the meeting.

People interested in joining the club are welcome to attend the meeting. For more information call 908-295-2320, e-mail cashreg47@aol.com or visit www.crcci.org.
