No. It's the kingfisher shopping centre in redditch. You can't miss it. It used to be the Superdry store.

Starts at 9:30. You can get a room for about £50 odd locally if you want a night on the piss afterwards.
Looking for: A fair priced ungraded trilogo Yak Face MOC (Condition is not so important - no cracked bubbles or broken seals though)

Too far for me unfortunately but the last one looked good. Regardless of what the Facebook group is like there's never anything wrong with collectors getting together in person.

Sounds interesting! Is it purely vintage focussed?

Pretty much vintage, but will be a small amount of modern stuff aswell.

Appreciate the offer but my general rule is if I spend more time travelling than at the event itself, I'll pass :lol:

I was supposed to be away in Spain this weekend but I have had to reschedule those plans so I can make this.

So without sounding like i'm unorganised or late to the party has anyone booked a table who may have a spare corner or half I could utilise.
