February 23.

February’s topic was Paper and Ephemera.
We had quite a few presenters, and many of the items were very interesting to examine. Topics like these can provide ideas on pieces to seek out to enhance an existing collection, consider collecting something different, or just enjoy learning more about the history behind the items from a personal collection.

The Jim Miller Park indoor facility is the perfect venue for our growing event.  It is three times larger than our previous location so it will accommodate many more buyers, sellers and display areas.  Eight foot tables are now available to sellers and there will be plenty of space for larger sale items such as console radios.  The facility features ample parking, easy loading and unloading access, PA system and restrooms.  We expect this be the biggest and best event yet.
