Sadly I think the Sandown fair is on its last legs.
Great effort from organisers to try and get it up and running again, but it must be hard when their fees are so high...
Good news was the buyers that came did spend money.
I do ok as I'm the only one who sells VFL stuff. cards are slow, but I only sell lower end cards.

Really hope these fairs one day get back to what they once where as I loved them as a buyer myself..

Key is to get the site prices well down to get more sellers or sellers to purchase more tables..
But overheads for a days fair must be a killer..

Was great to see you Lou and have a chat

The fair was a little underwhelming...definitely not like the good old days. Was fun to chat to some sellers and collectors that I haven't seen for awhile. Kids loved it because there was Pop Vinyl star wars bobble heads.
