I'll be there also and hopefully selling outside if the weather cooperates. I'll be on a lookout for that cowboy hat and say Hi.
OK Frank, hope the weather holds for you, I especially like the vendors and dealers that display outside, ive found some good deals out there
Hey there, Popi....last year I had the chance to visit the Dupage show....I did like it, and there folks scattered all over selling stuff right out of there cars. FYI..all those years that I lived in Naperville, or visited relatives in Chicago, and NEVER knew that show existed! HOPE you have fun!
Popi, Is the Internet address in your Profile correct? Two messages have been returned. John in Lansing, ILL
that email is correct, what do you need??
I am going to take a wild guess at this one. My sister had the same trouble awhile back, it was because our system was blocking her email as spam.
As far as fixing it, I don't have a clue, because im NOT an IT guy and this computer stuff is way beyond me.
Also John I will go out on a limb here and give you another email for you to try. If you use the new email, expect a wait time because its all new to me and I don't chck it regularly.
Popi, Will look for the tall cowboy there. Enjoy the show.
I picked up an excellent video (TM Books and Video) today at the Dupage show features forum member "Chugman's " layout and other local layouts. I especially like Art's layout tips at the end of the video. A very well done video. Thankyou Art for the heads up about this.
Also picked up a nice Santa Fe F3 "B"unit for a good price.
I may go in August. I'll have some extra cash and the snow threat should be gone by then.
The weather was nicer when I went this past December. Sunny and 48°.
we had a blast,(not from the snow and no pun intended), picked up a Marx B&O tin plate F AA unit and a Marx grey tin plate mercury stream liner set.
parking lot was awful, thought we were gonna get stuck, with snow/rain/wet/soft ground if someone didn't bury their vehicle in the mud it was a miracle.
side note from April show, any table I stopped at, the prices were very reasonable. Every dealer was more than willing to do better with their prices.
any items I bought, would have been listed for much more on the online auction site(but that doesn't mean they would get it). was a good show over all.
