Live in CA? Big Toy Show!
« on: December 7, 2006, 11:22 PM »
There is a big toy show at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds in the San Jose area in late March. I plan on selling there and buying there. It is a huge place, great for making contacts, and meeting other collectors. There was just one on Dec. 2 that I went to at the same place managed by the same people. Huge place, I mean huge. Great stuff. Repeats itself in March. 24th, I believe. Could be off by a couple days. I will update with more info when I get it.

I've never heard of this, who runs it? Is it an annual thing or did it just start? Did you see just toys or were there all sorts of collectibles (GG stuff namely). I may have to hit this next year.

A few years ago this show was call the Humdinger Toy Show. In it's heyday, when there were actually new Star Wars films on the way, there was a ton of Star Wars stuff there. I remember scoring some decent-priced vintage stuff there a couple times. The last one I went to was probably last March, and I was disappointed at the lack of Star Wars there, and what I did find was overpriced.

That being said, it's still fun to go and just see the stuff you've never seen before. I'm going to try to go in March, but it all depends how my two- and three-year olds behave.  ;)
