Store and Show Update

Rate this Entry
Well......it was hockey card day in Canada on Saturday and we gave away a pile of FREE packs and met a lot of new collectors. Smiles from the kids were seen everywhere and the chit chat with the adults was plentiful and enlightening. My thoughts on what has happened to this great and fun hobby seemed to be shared by many. From my wife and I thanks to all who came in and took the time to see us. We truly appreciate your visit and we hope to see you again.

We hosted our first card show on Sunday and it was interesting to say the least. Getting up early to a fresh snowfall, usually not a bad thing for us, was a bit of a nuisance as we had to shovel out the car before heading to the venue. Once there it was shovelling again to make sure everyone could get in. Sure am glad we did most of the setting up before heading home on Saturday night.
Vendors came in around 8ish and the flow continued right up until 10 when the first visitors started coming in. Some local flea market and store dealers showed up to say hello to those they knew and see what was going on. I met several interesting people and some very nice collectors took the time to chat with me.
All in all we are quite impressed with the first show and we did learn a few things from it. The next show should prove to be much better as promotion and the word getting out should be much better.
Thanks everyone for coming out and a special thanks to Justin and Mike who helped keep me on my feet and sane during the day.
