    Is there a place at Osh where a/c sellers put up notices such as "Nice 172 for sale row 1129, here til Thursday call 867-5309" or maybe an online site?

    Go to a shop that makes up custom T-shirts. Put your message on the shirt. Walk around. This board is probably OK with a temporary (week=long) blatant hucksterism or two. put flags on your tiedown ropes, flags on your prop, sign in both windshield and side windows.

    Yes, I remember seeing that last year, but don't remember exactly where.

    I've seen a few bulletin boards with aircraft sale and other ads on the grounds during the convention. I can't recall precisely, but I think there was a fairly large one across the street not far from the FAA Safety building on the Boeing Plaza side. Perhaps near some of the tram stops or entry gates also.

    There is usually a rather large board for that in front of the flight line side of the "Hangar" store, just north of (insert corporate name here) square.

    The red ultralight barn usually has a bulletin board to the right as you enter from the runway (east) side. It will have some for sale ads up too.

    Yes - The official for sale boards are just east of the EAA WearHouse, which is the 2nd building south of the tower.

    I am not at Oshkosh, unfortunately, but if anyone sees an ad for a Piper Arrow on the boards or anywhere else, I would be grateful if you would write down the contact info and pass it on to me here.
