Another year of collector shows is behind us and now it’s time to up-grade our collections with our new purchases or trades. It has been a good year for shows and we, along with fellow New Mexican’s, the Sowle’s and Reynolds’, managed to attend them all, except Nebraska, which was the same time as our show.
All the shows were good ones and the one in Springville, California really started things off with an excellent show. Then the show at the DRM in McLean, Texas, the super show in La Crosse, Kansas, which was a “Super Show”. Our New Mexico show in Moriarty was extra good with a lot of collectors attending. Colorado’s show in Walsenburg was a nice show and then it was off to La Crosse, Kansas again for the Symposium.
The Symposium is always good with a nice group of attendees. I think that there was a lot of good topics presented followed by some nice discussions. The pricing committees did a lot of work to determine any changes that should be made. There was a good ABWS meeting prior to the Symposium. The Ladies, after attending the ABWS meeting, headed to Ellis, Kansas were they toured a railroad and doll museum. Then they went back to Hays where they had a good German meal at Gella’s Restaurant.
That is a short summary of the Summer. Now NM is getting lined up for next years show which will be in Raton, NM on July 18th and 19th, 2014.
Hope everyone has a good Winter and we wish everyone a very Happy and Healthy HOLIDAY SEASON.
