Hello and welcome to April’s blog. I hope everyone is well. On the 15th March the club was lucky to be able to go ahead with our Collectors Toy & Train Fair. We were also lucky that most of our traders were able to make it, so there was a good selection of items for our visitors to browse. Not knowing how many people would turn up, we were delighted to welcome so many visitors both old and new. Judging by the number of carrier bags that people left with, it was apparent that there were plenty of items on sale to tempt most people. The fact that our toy fair was able to go ahead meant that everyone’s hard work to organise and promote the fair was rewarded. Since then of course all events have been cancelled and our hearts go out to the hundreds of event organisers many of whom will have been planning since their 2019 event had finished. Although there are no club meetings to go to at the moment you can still still get your diecast fix on this page and by going to our Quick Links page to access all the best diecast sites.
Take a look at some photo’s from around our toy fair by going to the Feature page. Click on the icon on the left of this page.
Although we cannot go to any auctions at present we can keep abreast of what items are coming up for sale via the Internet.
Keep up to date on the Vectis auction site were you can view past auctions as well as what models are coming up for sale in the future. Obviously dates could be subject to change but its a great way to pass an hour or so browsing the catalogues.
