There are two ways to sell your items at the Bay Area Bike Swap:
SWAP CONSIGNMENT: Participate in the one day consignment. Your item will be available for purchase by attendees. We will collect payment, take a fee and send you a check. No need to hang around and haggle a price. For details see SWAP info below.
EXHIBITOR: You may rent a 10'x10' booth to promote your brand or to sell items. For more information on Exhibitors CLICK HERE.

Bring us your item and we will sell it for you at the SWAP! We'll do the hard work while you are enjoying the festival. All you have to do is register as a consignor, let us know what to sell, and drop off your items the morning of the event. We will make your item available for purchase, field any questions and take payment (cash or credit card.) If we've sold your items, we will take a commission and mail you a check. Otherwise, you'll need to pick up any unsold items at the end of the festival or mark it for donation. There is an upfront $20 registration fee.
The 2023 Bay Area Bike Swap Consignment registration is open from 03/20/2023 - 05/01/2023. More details will be provided when registration opens.

How do you set the price?
You decide the price. It just needs to be in whole dollar amounts, so round up or down.
