Vendors have had more variety to sell the past couple of years.

The vendors at the Spokane show had not heard about the Portland event. Is this the SP&S show or something else?

Spokane is a long way from Portland. This is run by the Willamette Model Railroad Club and has been around for 34 years. Here's all the stuff they need: http://railfan.com/wrp_timetable/34th-annual-willamette-model-railroad-club-swap-meet/

Spokane to Portland is not that far away if you don't plan on doing it all in one day and the roads are good. My thought was to drive from MT to Portland on Friday for the Saturday show. I could leave mid afternoon on Saturday and drive the 6 hrs or so to spend the night in Spokane for their Sunday morning opening. Leave that show about 1600 for the 200 mile drive home for about 3 hrs plus the hour lost in the time zone change.

Could be a fun trip but with over 1000 miles of gas, two nights in motels then meals there might not be any 'bargains' to be found.

I hear you, fbe. Driving back from the Midwest, Missoula to Portland is our short day. But my limit for swap meets os abotu 100 miles one-way.
