NEC is pretty good, one of the best IMO.

We would have been having a table there but it's FF next weekend and don't want to miss that!

Thanks

I have seen the FF advertised a few times recently and it is only up the road from me. How many sellers
normally attend the FF event.

Then I would certainly come to FF rather than travel all the way to the NEC. It's waaaayyyyy better for vintage stuff, village hall crammed full of stuff. It's also better for meeting fellow collectors. We're travelling all the way from Stoke to do it, rather than do the hour drive to do the NEC.

I've been to the NEC and seen photos of FF, if you want vintage SW then you need to go to FF, not the NEC, particularly if you're so much closer to FF

Has anyone done the early bird entry at the NEC?
A mate and I went to the one earlier in the year and it was pretty good.

Considering the 8am entry for the one next month.

Yay, love a chance to quote Andy Clarke - always best to leave before the muggles get in :lol:
I can't recommend early bird enough, a much more pleasant retail experience

Defo do Early Bird if buying at NEC.

I'm hoping to have a stall there in August.

I'm my previous visits, I've done about 50% of my sales in the first 30 minutes of setting up

Good luck!
