I recently had the chance to check out a cool Private Toy Sale in nearby Salisbury Illinois with my buddies from ToyWorldOrder.com! Devall even managed to put together this cool little promo video on the upcoming sale. Check it out, and if you’re near the Central Illinois area you may want to swing by this sale this weekend to check it out. Full details can be found here.
Yesterday I made the trip up to the Chicago area to attend the Kane County Toy & Doll Show. If you’ve never been to a toy show before, think of it as a Flea Market, but the only items being sold are toys and dolls. The show at the Kane County Fairgrounds happens twice a year, and is one of the larger shows I have ever been to. I hadn’t been able to go to this one in over a year, so I was pretty excited to head up there.
I think one of my favorite things about going to toy shows like this isn’t necessarily what I find to purchase, but more what I get to see. Sometimes these shows offer up an opportunity for you to get a good look at some toys that are considered rare, or are just so expensive you may never have a chance to actually own them. Case in point: one booth had a vintage MOTU Megator.
