We did the Trade-A-Thon thing again on Saturday.

It’s the weekend oasis where buyers and sellers meet.  Whether you want to sel l or shop, we’ve got something for you every Saturday from nine to noon.


We ask all our callers a poll question before they give their listing.  Not only does it provide a theme that ties all our calls together, it also helps us get to know them a little better.

Last week we wanted to know your “first freeze” predictions.  Then on Tuesday we almost had it.  It got cold enough that I had to run the heater.  It made me wonder if you had to turn the heat on last week also.

Did you run the heater last week?

Yes 16

No 12

A close vote which I thought would go the other way.  I caved in on Tuesday but it’s been off since.


Trade-A-Thon has rules and we go over them at the beginning of each hour.  It helps ensure everyone knows how the show works.  Along with the five regular rules of the show, I also bring you a sixth rule.  It changes every week and is usually inspired by something that happened to me over the previous week.

I was reading a book Friday night.  I came across a passage that I thought would make a good rule.

Rule #6: One of history’s iron laws is luxuries tend to become necessities.

See you Saturday for another Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon!
