I went to my first toy show since I began seriously collecting. It was a tiny show with only 10 different vendors but I managed to find some great stuff. The lead picture is my “barn find” hawl. I don’t know much about anything in the picture I just know they needed a home. Hopefully some of the more knowledgeable LaLders will fill me in on what I have here. If anyone knows a safe way to clean some of the cars up please let me know.

This next group was an impulse buy on the way out of the show. Again not a group I know much about so any info is much appreciated. The vintage Tomica is what drew me in. Its the only vintage Tomica in my collection. It was also the only Tomica at the show so I had to dig a bit deeper in the sellers boxes to make sure I didn’t miss anything. It turned into a nice little buy IMO.

Here we have several HW 100% and JLs. All of this group is nice and minty. The highlights here are the JL corvair and the HW 100% Daytona.


And last but not least I picked up a few carded goodies. The STH BMW and white gasser was a trade and the rest I picked up for wheel donors. Over all it was a good day for me. I managed to stay under budget and I think I founds some great stuff. A few of the items I would be willing to trade so if you see anything you like let me know. Happy hunting everyone.
