I saw the PATINA Annual event referenced here about a month ago. Here's more
info. This is the event normally held in March but postponed due to Covid. Local
county requirements currently require masks inside. See
The PATINA Annual Tailgate, "Dealer" sale, and Auction is Oct 16! PASS IT ON! 
Indoor setup will start Oct 15, and continue early, on Oct 16, as more dealers
Anyone can be a "Dealer" inside. Some people set up inside as a hedge against
the rain. In the past, some tools inside were cheaper than outside so don't
assume there are no bargains inside.
Indoor table fees and all Donations are requested to offset the cost of this
event, which far exceeds $3000. If you tailgate only, as a buyer or seller,
please consider making a donation, joining PATINA, or make catchup dues
payments, $15 per year.
We have some better tools in the auction than normal so please attend the

consigned are better than what we have received in a long time.

Some photos of the PATINA event were shared by an attendee. I assume you can get
to this url. I hope the photos get posted on our website at patinatools.org.


I was there for two days and didnt see half this stuff! 

Many thanks to those buyers and sellers that attended. Thanks to those that
joined, or gave a donation.
There was half mile of tools and some amazing wood slabs. The rain held off just
long enough so they event was a success.

Savvy dealers (mostly) hung around and got good buys in the auction.

Many attendees commented that didn't like the cold weather that goes along with
the March event, but they also said they liked that PATINA kicks off the tool
season. I expect we will return to a March date if we can collect auction
