This show went pretty well, the rain Sunday may have helped but Saturday was the busier day by far. My Sunday sales were about the same as November. But overall it was up and I'll plan to be back next spring. I would probably do the fall one too but it's opposite Binghamton and normally also Batavia.
At least one vendor found the show via this posting.
I didn't see too many overly high prices. What I did get was a number of people wanting to offer me less than cost on brand new items, I had to tell them no, you're already getting 20% off and the tax discounted. "well I didn't know" you walked past the same darn thing in the other room for 50 cents less but plus tax, come on.
On the other hand I've sold off now most of the cars the super cheap dude who comes to Binghamton wanted to give me like $3 a shot for, so I won't have to listen to him again. "your inventory doesn't turn over much" he says at the first show I've done since the last time he tried the same thing at the last show I did.
I also picked up a few good flip items for the internet which will keep me going a few more weeks. Which is good since who knows what car shows will actually happen this year.
In other updates, I did hear some indication there will be a small show in Avon but no details. I didn't bother to press when I overheard it saw 120 people as a display event over the winter and that they had room for like three dealers for their next one.
I also hear the Syracuse Model RR Club is essentially now defunct, but members have moved on to join the Skaneatles club in Hartlot and intend to look at reviving the Eastwood show in a fire hall in Elbridge or that area. Sounds like a good idea to me, the CNY NRHS does fairly well with their show in Camillus. I guess we'll see what happens.
