I know I usually report on toy shows after the fact, but I thought I'd try something new this time. I'm actually letting you know about a show early, so we can compete for the hidden treasures.
This weekend, there's a toy show at the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo in Charlotte. I'm gonna go on Sunday I think. Hopefully there will be good stuff leftover for me.
7100 Statesville Road
Charlotte, NC 28269
Saturday: 9 AM - 4 PM
Sunday: 10 AM - 4 PM
Children under 15: FREE
Weekend Pass: $7.00
If there are any local Weirdo Toys readers in the area, I'd love to meet you (It may be awkward or it may be fun. I dunno).
By the way, I'm not gonna start doing a national toy show report or anything (at least not yet). I'll just occasionally list some shows I'm going to, and I'll hopefully show you the results of my regular toy treks. If there are toy shows you all are interested in, I can blog about those too.
The Charlotte show is hit and miss. Sometimes, I don't find anything worthwhile, and other times, I come across gems like these:
I hope to see you there.
Oh yeah. I need to warn you. It seems like half the show is usually NASCAR and other sports memorabilia. Good luck
