A couple of times a year I attend old toy soldier shows. This is a world that has a hard core audience, mostly older, a good part of it nostalgia-based. It tends to advertise by post cards rather than the internet.
Lots of old 54mm Britain’s and later models in the same style. Some American dime store toys, occasionally French and German figures. Lots of plastics, especially Marx.
Not a lot of customers though, which worries me. Someone blamed it on the state of the parking area, which seemed unlikely. Nobody drives to a show and abandons the effort because there’s construction work behind the venue.
Britain’s plastic hospital, which I’d never seen before. Plastic, expensive, that’s all I know.
I bought some books, some smaller than 54mm Herald highland pipers I hope will look okay with my 42mms, and these wonderful c19th German flats, for $20 the set. Flats aren’t big with this crowd, so I got a bargain.
