Steve puts on a great show! Plus one can grab a deep dish at Lou Malnati's or a dog at Superdawg. Make sure if you attend to visit Steve's shop off W Devon! Always a treasure hunt. Ask to use the restroom and you'll get to see all the rare stuff he has stashed away in the back room!

Same here...usually 3 to 4. A couple times I felt like asking Steve if he would put me on the clock!

...his shop is pretty packed! Sometimes hard to even make it in the door, especially if he had a delivery!

Do you think this would be a good place to bring my Herpa Premium Emirates A300 and Lufthansa Modell Edition A300 (which comes with all factory box, display case)? I am looking to sell these two for $350

My reasoning being that not a lot of people go to shows with that much cash for transactions.

I am not blaming you at all . I have never been to this show and am not sure if the show would attract collectors looking specifically for Herpa Premium/LME type models. PayPal is always there, aint it??

Good times as always. Got a Gemini200 Gulfstream 650, and a Blue Box DC-8-62 Champion Air. Good show!

For those that say, "I could buy this on eBay," it's true, the selection isn't always the best, but, I'd rather have the look around. I've gone home empty handed several times, but I like to interact with people and I like to support small businesses. Also, sometimes you get a great deal! Today was a win for me!
