Charlotte Trade-O-Ree


Charlotte Trade-O-Ree

The Charlotte Trade-O-Ree has grown over the last few years to become one of the best Scouting memorabilia trade-o-rees (think swap meet) in the southeast.  Hosted at a large church in Charlotte NC this years show will have 100+ tables full of Scouting memorabilia from vendors traveling from many surrounding states.  A trade-o-ree is a chance to see Scouting history.  You can come browse, ask questions, buy, sell and trade Scouting memorabilia.  There is no charge for admission so please come out and bring the whole family, den or troop! This event is hosted by Pack 33 as an annual fundraiser.


This year we will once again have our local Catawba Lodge #459 trading post will also be selling items from their lodge box. Another special treat is the silent auctions that begin at 7 PM Friday night and run every 45 minutes both days. Many of the items in the silent auction have a minimum bid of just $1!


We have concessions available for sale in the kitchen so that you don’t have to leave the site to get a meal.  Friday night we will offer a dinner plate typically with BBQ and sides.  Saturday we will offer pastry and coffee for breakfast and a hot plate lunch.


Merit Badges Offered

Once again Stuart Tucker of the Apatche District, Mecklenburg County Council will be teaching Collections merit badge during the TOR.  Registration for these will be handled through the council advancement webpage.


Floor Plan

The 2020 Edition of the Charlotte TOR will have 100+ tables available for vendors. The tables are 6 feet long and 2 1/2 feet wide (standard size). Some of these tables have been reserved for the silent auctions, Catawba Lodge store. Tables are available for rent to vendors that want to come display and sell their items. The wall tables are $25 each and the inside tables rent for $20. The floor plan is tentative and subject to change based on reservations.


This is an approximate map of the TOR floor space in the fellowship hall. The actual layout will probably be slightly different when we get everything set up. There are restrooms just outside the fellowship hall. The concessions will be served from the kitchen which is also just on the other side of the door on the far left of this map.

Vendor Reservation Information

The event is being held in the fellowship hall of Sardis Presbyterian Church. This facility is over 7000 square feet and can accommodate 100+ tables. We sold out the tables in each year we hosted the event. In 2018 we added a silent auction and improved the concessions. This event is a fundraiser for Pack 33 sponsored by Sardis Presbyterian Church.


All TOR tables are standard sized 6 foot tables. These are available for rent at $20 each. We have a limited number of wall tables for rent at $25 each. To rent a table please download the TOR flier and mail your payment to the TOR Coordinator with the check made out to “Pack 33”. If you have any questions email Jason Spangler.


Dealer set up begins at noon on Friday March 27 and the show wraps up at 3 PM on Saturday March 28. Concessions are available for purchase on site so you don’t have to leave the location. We will have a supper meal on Friday, coffee and snack items in the morning and lunch available. There are many hotels within a 10 minute drive of the show.

The church campus is pretty large. Luckily there is ample parking. The event is being held in the Fellowship Hall as marked on this map. You can park in the closest spots near the roundabout to unload. There are no steps or ramps that you will have to avoid to bring your items in – however it is a about a 25 yard walk from the unloading at the parking lot to the glass doors where the entrance to the fellowship hall is.


Lodging Suggestions

Sardis Presbyterian Church is located at 6100 Sardis Rd, Charlotte, NC 28270. The best place to find a hotel is the nice corridor where North Sardis Road meets East Independence Blvd just north of Matthews, NC. This area has multiple hotels, chain restaurants, a Wal-Mart, and even a Goodwill for you diggers out there. We have not singled out any hotel for a block of rooms because being a metropolitan city there are so many options. We do recommend the Matthews NC corridor off of North Sardis Road because of the number of hotels and restaurants in that area.


This area is a 5-8 minute drive from the church. There are plenty of other great options in Charlotte but this is the closest commercial district to the church that has this type of variety of options.
