Here is some quick news.

Well that’s a wrap on May. Tomorrow is June 1st and I am wrapping up my show season with a long ride to Virginia this weekend. Stop by the show for some great new products and to check out our bargain section. The Texas show was a blast. I think it hit 100 degrees but that didn’t keep the collectors away. It was one of my best shows and I want to thank all of you that made my trip worth while.  See below for some pictures.

May News

Here is some quick news.

Wow we are almost halfway in May already. We are back from the MFCA show and figuring out our next move. The show was better attended from last year which is a good sign. Overall we had a successful show until the ride home. We were just about out of New York when my rear tire blew out. We were unable to change it and a tow guy had to grind it off, 2 hours later we were back on the road. As I proceeded home the spare wasn’t happy. I checked it twice but in the end the end the tire was not put on right. A half mile from my house at 2:15AM my tire fell off (yup can’t make this stuff up). I was able to get it all towed and got to bed at 4AM. Really it was a bit of bad luck mixed with good luck. It could have been a lot worse. Between the tows and repairs I was only out about $500.00 without any major scares or damage.

The amount of new product announcements, incoming shipments and trying to keep it all in stock has been crazy this Spring. We have several shipments due in tomorrow and the store will be packed with new games, models and supplies!
Next week we wil be packing up from HUZZAH. I may only be there Friday and Saturday, both my boys havd baseball games on the Sunday.
