Went today, good event, picked up a couple of boxed vehicles I needed at a reasonable price, anyone wanting bargains though may be disappointed as it's mainly all dealers who know what everything is worth so expect to pay market value or a bit above, still it's nice to properly judge condition before buying rather than relying on internet pictures.

Totally agree, it’s great to see and feel before buying, really old school!
Went today, saw some familiar faces and saw a lots of nice Vintage.
Made the trip to collect a purchase in person from TK 7785, but managed to spend 3 hours there just “window shopping”.
Had a great time, would recommend this event to anyone reasonably local.

Went along today and really enjoyed it. Didn’t buy anything but had a look around, some really nice stuff there. Nice to catch up with some familiar faces. Never been to a BP toy fair before, what struck me was how many older people were there and how much fun they seemed to be having talking about model trains and old dinky toys. That’ll be us before you know it. Pleased it brings them pleasure, be thankful you have a hobby.

Ha ha, I’m not on my Zimmer frame yet but not far off. We got there at 10.30, I heard there was a few bargains to be had earlier on. The early birds got in at eight and went through like a plague of locusts! I didn’t have much cash so was only going for a look about. I nearly bought some Starsky and Hutch stuff, thinking of starting a side focus. Great atmosphere and nice surroundings. Will defo say hello if we make it to the next one mate.
