Not a bad fair today.
There was a fair amount of vintage around.
Some prices were absolutely ridiculous (tri logo Barada £325, POTF Romba £300)
But I bought a couple of carded figures for a sensible price from a different seller.
What with this one and the NEC it looks like toy fairs are getting better,which is not a bad thing.
Today for me WELL WORTH THE VISIT.
Always looking for meccano items

Bizarre - I thought it was pretty disappointing! I haven't been to the Doncaster fair for about 15 years, usually because we can't make it. We were free today though so thought we'd give it a go.

Only saw 1 dedicated SW stall, and maybe a dozen others with various bits and pieces. Most stuff seemed to be overpriced, particularly the loose figures. Ended up coming away with nothing.

Today was the biggest Donny fair for a long time and more vintage than normal too - but that is relative :)

It's never that good for vintage SW but you can't complain at the entry price and there are bargains to be had

I just picked up a couple of vintage action man bits and bobs but the family all got something too

Went today.
Not bad although Donny is always HEAVY on Trains and Cars..

A few nice bits….picked up a few nice looses with weapons but i had to dig about.

Also went to NEC….that was much better for Vintage IMO…but it is twice as big.

Good day out.
Die Wanna Wanga.
