Default Museum of Flying Aviation Expo - August 18th

New aviation expo at the Santa Monica Museum of Flying, scheduled for Sunday August 18th, 10am-5pm.

There will be 60 tables available (with room for up to 100 if demand is there) at the Museum of Flying, which has a few nice airline exhibits, including an McDonnell Douglas MD-11 winglet and the Douglas SST scale interior cockpit model with working nose on display (not to mention the front of a FedEx 727 sticking out of the building you can go into).

Table reservations begin on Monday, April 15th, and will be posted on social media and other sites.

If interested in having a vendor table, please drop me a PM for more details.

Next week further details will be released.

Not even a week after the show was announced, half the tables have been reserved, and many by new vendors.

We are now at 70% tables sold.

As for 5pm close, that’s when the museum closes. Enjoy the museum and the show, take your time. Great airline exhibits there.

Just to update everyone - we've sold out ALL tables, and we have a few vendors that have not attended shows in the past that are liquidating entire collections of airline memorabilia (models, paper, etc).

This show is going to be great - lots of new vendors, and a great venue.

Tables sold out, and we have a number of substantial model collections (of all scales) as well as other memorabilia from all new vendors.

We are now receiving requests for more tables, but at this juncture, we're full.

Pre-buy tickets (up on the Santa Monica Museum Facebook page) for fast access (as opposed to standing in line to buy tickets on the day of). Early bird tickets also being sold.

Shaping up to be a phenomenal show - all signs point towards it.

Lol - I’m doing my part, but I don’t deserve all the credit.

I meant to say above there are a few substantial model collections being liquidated of all scales (not the typical die cast), and a good number of vendors who’ve never been to a show before or only display once every so many years.

I’d term it “making aviation shows great again”

Fingers crossed there are a ton of attendees, and lots of sales.

Will collectors/attendees get a chance to purchase those collection sale models or will retailers snap them up before the show begins?

Usually the best deals are grabbed before the doors open.

Yep...definitely! Unless selling at a show or helping a fellow friend/retailer to gain early entrance, some of the really good stuff is already spoken for!

Early bird admission is being sold for $20 one hour before the show opens.

Too bad this show is on a Sunday as many folks live out of town and or out of state and work the next day which makes it difficult to attend. I have a ton of stuff to sell but live in AZ and cannot attend the show to sell or buy which is a shame.

Sunday was chosen because attendance at other local shows is higher than Saturday. The perception being many have family commitments on Saturday as an example.

We have two vendors coming from AZ.

To those who are going to attend the show, I strongly recommend you buy and print your tickets in advance. We're expecting a lot of people, and if you want to bypass standing in line to buy a ticket, buy in advance. It'll be considerably faster.

Also - there are "early bird" tickets available for anyone that wants to be the general crowds.

Stopped by for a few hours. Looked like a good crowd and lots of vendors, but no must haves for me. I did pick up a few trinkets and enjoyed myself
