    No such luck, man. I do hope to make the trip this summer, though. I couldn't last summer due to my job hunt and acquisition (which, of course, is what brought me to AZ).

    By the summer, I'll have plenty of PTO saved up so I can take a couple weeks off and still get paid.

    Just a heads up Toy/Transformers show/flea market thing going on at Pennsy Flea Market on Sun 12/4. I have been meaning to check out this flea market for a while now, never been there so anyone that thinks it may suck def let us know....

    Maybe even a quick Philly meetup last minute thing if anyone wants to bring stuff..

    I was thinking about it. No sure how well this one will do. I will wait to set up at the Delaware show instead.

    Decided to get a table for this show, since it's close to my place. I'm hoping the Philly show catches on, and they have this regularly like their Delaware toy shows.

    Hope to see some of you there! :)

    Another heads up for those who don't know, the biggest Toy show NJ has ever seen is coming up. Jan 29th. Last years was their biggest moving to a new location. This year they are moving to an even bigger location. At 200 tables I'm not sure if there really has ever been a toy specific show of this size ever in NJ. Might be a good trade-meet up location.

    They never called me back about tables still being available or not so I said screw it and I'm gonna just do NJCC and the next Nur Temple show in DE - two in the spring is plenty.

    If you guys DO get tables at Winter Fever good luck - in my experience, these big shows can be a double edged sword. On the one hand, you can have an amazing shopping day - lots of tables means lots of neat stuff. The drawback to that is, there're 199 other tables in there besides yours - so, that's 199 other places that folks can spend all of their $ before they even SEE what you have for sale. Competition is great - as long as YOU are kicking everyong ELSE'S ass ;) 

    I dunno - I kinda like being one of the folks at a smaller show but with an AWESOME table, because I make $ hand over fist. If EVERYONE has an awesome table, as a seller I don't like that - because I want ALL the money :D  At Nur Temple there is some awesome stuff, for sure - but if you JUST want a Transformer, what've you got? Realistically you've got me, Hector, Jerry, and that Heman guy - that's about it. And it shows - our tables are always crowded.

    So having not heard back from them about tables, I don't think I'll pursue it - I'll skip this and just get my $$$ in early for NJCC and Nur Temple's April Fools show. Not putting down Winter Fever - just saying I personally do just fine selling at the smaller shows. And right now I only want newer stuff anyway, so pretty much all my "shopping" is in preorders. LOL

    I agree with you and I'm fourth in the waiting list so most likely I'm not gettting a table. I'm trying to work around that 4/6 date for NJCC. I have a huge group class project due for finals the next day so I hope I can swing that. I think I would do very well at Winter Fever, because no one will have the stuff I will have for sale., trust me. :D

    My friend (not the same friend as last time) and I will be there at around 2. Give or take. We both had some stuff to do in the morning, but I still wanted to go just for shits.

    I'll be there. Probably earlier rather than later.
