Chicago Toy Show - Oct 26th & 27th

in #toys2 years ago (edited)

Wondering if any of the toy collectors on Steem are planning on going to the Chicago Toy Show at the end of October. It's one of the largest toy shows in the Country and people fly in from all around the world. I have customers that come to my booth show after show from the UK, Japan, Canada, and multiple European Countries. It's pretty cool seeing these die hard collectors keep coming back not only to the show, but to my booth.

If you haven't ever heard about this show here is their website:

This show has vendors that bring toys of every era from antique cast iron toys and antique dolls up to modern toys. Best part is the vendors make a serious effort to bring hard to find items to this show as we all know that serious buyers looking for those "unicorns" will be at the show. If you are even remotely close to the Chicagoland area and have any interest in toy collecting this show is worth the drive!

Wondering if any Steemians are planning to come to this show and if so I'd love to meet you while your there and I'd be willing to accept STEEM for payment.

I might get to this one. Not much of a toy collector, but my buddy is and has told me tales of the ultra rare stuff that shows up there

Basically any toy line you can think of you will see the hard to find items there. Just an example this time I'm loaded up on TMNT. I have what most would consider the hardest figure being Scratch mint on card...actually mint on an unpunched card. Also have 6 other of the top 10 most valuable TMNT figures along with carded vintage 80's wrestling figures, 80's GI Joe, and other rare figures.

Only warning I'll give for someone that is serious about wanting to buy the rare figures it the best deals are on Saturday as are the best figures. It's $50 to get in on Saturday so there is pretty much no crowd compared to Sunday, but the serious people come on Saturday and buy up a lot of the unicorns.

Hey bud, hope you're doing well. Steemit won't let me withdraw my coins. I can post, but they won't let move my coins to Bittrex. I finally decided to cut my losses and the few thousand dollars I invested in the platform, but apparently that is now a problem. I keep getting an error saying I don't have the right password, but even my Master doesn't work. Of course, there is no actual help desk to sort the issue and I can't "recover" my account because it wasn't "stolen". What a shit show. Any suggestions?

hmmm...I don't know the answer to that one. I would post in the PIFC discord and I bet someone there will have an answer or be able to point you to the right person.


Side note this is a good time to just follow some curation trails and earn passively that way. You could just set up to trail PIFC as I do a pretty good job keeping that account from hitting 100% VP. With 50% curation it's pretty profitable to be voting compared to before.
