Hi,

Well, if a show were to get going I might be able to fill a small table with some well priced snapshots from 1939

Let me know if anything firms up, and I'll see if I can make it as well. I'll add some more photos to MB's offerings!

Location, location...it would be great to hold it somwehere fitting. We'd need permission to errect a tent over the Time Capsules, no? I dunno, but that would be great..and some food and whatnot..more an informal swap than another Adria. No entry fees, etc. My .02.

There was a fun show at the Queens Museum a number of years ago. I flew back just for that. Be nice to tie in with them, as they had facilities to show films, etc.

Hi Bench,

how many dealers (and who) are aboard already and how much for a table?

Best,
Eric

I know you posted this over two years ago, but I agree. There's no real world's fair convention out there right now, and any sort of convention could easily pull in a lot of people and display a lot of things. Also I think a world's fair museum would be a great idea. The closest thing we have is "expomuseum", but there's nothing that exists that's actually brick and stone. There have been world's fair exhibits, but I think world's fairs could easily take up an entire museum.
