Collectibles showcase looking for vendors

March 18, 2017 by  

The Collectibles Expo will be taking place next month over two days.

An opportunity for collectors, comic book stores and others to sell their products and meet others who share their interests, vendors are expected to be selling items such as toys, baseball cards, action figures, vinyl records, and video games. A number of artists will also be on hand to showcase their talents, such as artist Chris Otto, who will be providing free sketches and caricatures to children.

There is still room for more vendors at this year’s show. Fees are $99.95 for a 6-foot table or $199.95 for a 10 x 10-foot booth, and these fees cover both days.

It is likely that many of the vendors, who will come from nearby communities such as Chester, will wish to decorate their booths to attract as many visitors as possible. This may include investing in banners or signs provided by a local printing company.

Overall, the show will no doubt draw people who are trying to finish off a collection or looking to start a new one. It will be held at the Chesterfield Fairgrounds from April 22 to 23 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm each day. Admission for both days is $9.95 for adults and free for children aged 9 and under.
