How many dealers or tables do you plan to have?

WE ARE AT 52 DEALERS WITH MORE PENDING CONFIRMATIONS. APPRAISOR WILL ALSO BE ON SITE. OUR GOAL IS 65 FOR OUR 1ST SHOW, AND 100 FOR THE NEXT. SPACE IS NOT AN ISSUE.

Where and when will the event be held? How much is admission?

EVENT HELD AT ST-LAZARE SPORTSPLEX, 1850 RUE DES LOISIRS, ST-LAZARE, QC J7T 3B4. SUN., SEPT. 09, FROM 9AM TO 4PM. ADMISSION $8 (CHILDREN 12 & UNDER, FREE). 25% OF THAT WILL BE DONATED TO THE VETERANS HOSPITAL. WE HAVE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY PROMOTING AND ADVERTISING THE SHOW AND HOPEFULLY, IN THE FUTURE AS THE SHOW GETS POPULAR, WE WON’T HAVE TO SPEND AS MUCH SO THAT WE CAN DONATE MORE. OUR GOAL IS TO SUPPORT LOCAL CHARITIES WHERE FUNDS ARE NEEDED MOST TO HELP PEOPLE IN NEED.

Why did you decide to create such a show? How did this come about? And why in this area?

WE HAVE ATTENDED AND PARTICIPATED IN MANY SHOWS AND MET MANY DEALERS ALONG THE WAY AS WELL AS PRIVATE COLLECTORS AND DECIDED TO PUT ON A SHOW IN OUR AREA AS WE DON’T HAVE ONE. THERE ARE MANY PRIVATE COLLECTORS IN ST-LAZARE AND SURROUNDING AREAS. WE THOUGHT THIS WOULD ATTRACT MANY PEOPLE INTO THE CITY. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON IT FOR OVER A YEAR NOW. THE VERY FIRST THING WE DID WAS COMMUNICATE WITH DEALERS AND COLLECTORS TO SEE IF THERE WAS AN INTEREST, AS WELL AS LOCAL RESIDENTS AND BUISNESS OWNERS. THE REACTION WAS HUGE AND RECEIVED A LOT OF POSITIVE FEEDBACK.

Do you also collect items personally? If yes, what do you like and collect personally?

WE COLLECT ANYTHING OF COLLECTABLE INTEREST. FROM COMIC BOOKS, COINS, MILITARY, ANTIQUES, TOYS, ETC..

Anything to add about the upcoming show?

HOPING TO SEE YOU ALL ON SEPT. 09, 2012  AND BRING YOUR FRIENDS TOO!
