Vendors set up tables that they pay for, and you buy the stuff from them-some new, some used, and all manner of firearms and accessories.
There is an admission to enter as well.

Great, thanks alot.

Do many of the smaller town shops make it out usually? I think I may try to make it out and see what it is all about.

Some do, yes, some don't .
Lots of Internet vendors and private guys as well.
Torrington is normally a decent show from what I have been told.
I DO know you will see some fantastic Italian shotguns, for sure- look up Will Bilozir's table!

He is usually there walking around if you catch him. I doubt he has ever set up a table.

Smile Its a great little show.

Good food too. Check out the versatile dog trail just up the road at Bigalow dam, it is free! Saturday you can see the puppies and we have some dandies and on Sunday the adult dogs, some good one here too. We get going early and run most of the day. Lawn chairs are a big help.
