Events in Sheffield/Manchester/Derbyshire area

Postby Woolyniner » Fri Apr 14, 2017 3:51 pm

I'm enjoying searching for vintage and meeting traders out and about, far more fun than clicking. Alas FF always seems to be scheduled when I have work commitments, so I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas for toy fairs/events in the Sheffield/Manchester/Derbyshire area? I'm organising a family day out to Bakewell next bank holiday to visit the toy fair there, but any other regular event ideas would be appreciated.

May only be a small amount of star wars, but Bakewell is a good place for a day out regardless.

you just missed doncaster toy fair. A bit more vintage than normal too, mostly lose ships and figures but a Yak for £80 wasnt bad. Fair bit of yellowing and paint scuffs so I passed.

Next one is in july

I saw that, I passed on it as it wasn't in great condition, I did see some way overpriced stuff a standard badly yellowed bubble Logray in a star case for £200
I picked up a couple of Carded Action Force, a decent Rebel Commander with original weapon and a Walruss Man. Not a bad day all in all for me.
When I was ten I drooled over Star Wars Toys, I'm now 45 and doing the same thing

If i was sure the staff was original I'd have bought it, but no good with repros away from a computer

I just bought action man stuff and a die cast Monkeemobile :mrgreen:

I used to be big into Action Man then the 40th killed it for me, I did notice some 40th trying to be passéd as Vintage from a guy who swore he had no 40th stuff on his stall. I don't know why people can't be straight with you especially when large amounts of cash could potentially be involved.
It is a minefield now with the repro stuff seemingly everywhere now
