    Well, as far as your calendar goes, you can add my store's 25th anniversary celebration/sale July 15-17. (NOW & THEN in Mason City, IA.)

    Crazy as it seems, we've made it to 25 years as a business. As part of our big weekend, I'm trying to put together a transformers meet up. I'm inviting any TF fan who wants to have a little fun for a meet-up/swap meet. We'll have plenty of room and tables for anyone bringing stuff to B/S/T. I'm also putting the store's Transformers up for 20% off the entire weekend.

    There are a lot more we're putting together for this event so there will be more info as we get closer to the big weekend. If any of you guys are interested in participating, PM me and let me know so I can reserve a space for you.

    I hope to see you all here.

    Hey, guys.

    I thought I'd make a couple of announcements about our sale this weekend in case any of you were planning to head on down for our big 25th. ann. sale.

    First I have to make a correction about the post above and state that the store's TF's are only 10% off and not 20%. Sorry for posting that wrong. Second, we are holding a TF meet-up this Sunday the 17th. from 1 until 6 PM. We will be offer free table space if anyone wants to bring figures to sell or trade.

    Most everything else in the store is on sale besides the TF's and we are holding the new Magic set pre-release tournaments all weekend as well. (for those of you into MTG.) The sale starts Friday and goes all weekend.

    If anyone has any questions either post them here or PM me. Our address is...

    NOW & THEN
    1314 4th. st. SW
    Mason City IA, 50401

    Harold

    ps. If anyone is coming down could I ask if they could pick up a Titan's Return Hardhead and a set of the Legends figures, I have a friend in Japan who asked me to pick them up for him and bring them with me when I go to Japan on the 20th. but our local stores have sold out. Thanks in advance.

    I'm very tempted to head to Mason City Sunday. All depends on the situation at work.

    I can't make it to Frankie Con, however. I have to head to Fergus Falls that Saturday.

    Anyone interested in a meetup prior to the holiday season? My October (so far) is pretty open until the last week or so.

    While this is a bit short of notice, we are having a Meet Up at my store, Now & Then (Mason City IA, 50401) the 18th of this month. I had a cancellation so I had the space open up for a meet up.

    We are offering tables on a first come basis for sales or trading. If anyone is interested in coming on down next Saturday, let me know or check out my North Iowa Transformers Meet Up thread.

    Hey guys, I hope some of you still check this thread out from time to time. I have a bit of a strange request... I was hoping we'd have a meet-up of some kind before Pete's Robot Con to hopefully pick up a few good deals to take to the show as inventory. Since there doesn't seem to be anything lined up, let me ask if any of you could use a few bucks or are looking for some good trading? I'd be willing to drive up if anyone was interested and any deal was worth a tank of gas. I'd even be willing to meet with a few of you guys together if I get multiple offers. Please let me know by Friday if anyone is interested.

    Thanks in advance.
