Please RSVP to Justus (justusb @ caltech.edu ), and reserve a spot ASAP.  There will be an entrance fee of $5 to reserve a place at the swap.  This money will go toward buying refreshments to attract more people to the sale.  Please write if you have questions about this.

On the day of the sale, arrive early and set up your wares in the section provided.  Some tables will be available, first-come first-served, but in general most sections will be on the ground in the courtyard.
