The Best Swap for Good Quality, Used Kids, Junior and Adult Equipment!
The Minnesota Youth Ski League is pleased to host this big event, open to the entire public. The sale is being held as a fundraiser for MYSL and provides skiers, of all sizes and ages, the opportunity to sell outgrown and little used equipment and clothing. We request that sellers limit merchandise to items that are directly related to cross country skiing. No three-pin bindings, downhill gear or bicycles, please! 20% of the sale price and $1 per item, will be retained by MYSL.
The following merchandise is considered appropriate for this sale:
*cross-country skis, boots, bindings and poles (current binding systems only unless on wooden skis)
*ski related clothing
*roller skis and roller blades
*waxing irons, benches and other waxing paraphenalia
Sellers: There is a check-in period on Saturday. You will receive a tag for each item. At this time you will be charged a $1 service charge per item (bring cash). We request that you price your merchandise reasonably (whole dollars only). If you are unsure of how to price your items, we will advise at check-in. You may pick up your money and/or any unsold equipment from 3:00 to 4:00pm on Saturday. Any merchandise not claimed by 4:00pm will be considered a donation to the Minnesota Youth Ski League.
If you have more than four items we ask that you preregister by downloading the spreadsheet below, filling in your info and emailing it to Amy. If you need pricing advice, please include a group picture of your items. You will not be charged the $1 per item fee if you pre-register. Spreadsheet deadline is Thursday midnight.
Vendors: Contact Amy for information on how to participate.
Buyers: We are using tickets for timed entry this year, so you can enjoy the expo. The sale is popular and busy, so come early for the best selection. There is a separate section for youth (approximate sizing for 6th graders and below). Volunteer staff members will be available to provide assistance and fit skis. Displayed prices are considered non-negotiable and all sales are final. Please come prepared with small denomination bills and a checkbook. You can expect to find some of the best bargains in town!
Equipment Donations: MYSL accepts doations of all sizes of ski equipment with a current binding system (SNS or NNN). Leading up to the swap, we have drop-off locations for your donations.
You can also drop off items at the Ski Swap on Nov 12th between 9-10:30am. Email Amy for a tax receipt or pictures of items you are not sure about. Thank you for supporting MYSL!
