NAA Swap Shop - Open to the General Public - The Texas Tradition continues . . .
Area musicians may bring musical instruments for this swap shop (if space allows).

Do you have instruments (accordions) that you do not play any longer? Do you have too many instruments or related items you would like to sell or trade? Then you need to Visit the NAA  "SWAP SHOP" at the 2014 Convention.   The Swap Shop is provided Free of charge by the NAA for the convenience of the convention attendees.  It is operated by the members for the members.  It is a place to display your Special Treasured accordions or other musical instruments that you would like to sell or trade.  Again, THERE IS NO COST for this service. The general public is encouraged to visit the vendor areas and swap shop at no cost. Non-conventioneers are to stop by the registration table and pick up a visitor's pass.

Because space is at a premium and the primary purpose is to allow members to sell or trade Accordions and accordion related items, (instruments, cases, straps, stands etc.) The sales and trades of sheet music, practice books etc. are not recommended unless the seller is willing to spend full time with the items and use a limited area. So bring your unused instruments and accordion toys (what all accordion players have some of) and see if you can find it a new home.
