THANK YOU EVERYONE!

Convention 2017 took place on Friday July 28th and Saturday July 29th, 2017 in the East Aurora NY area. Glad to say, the convention was a big success! We had a very fun and well-attended dinner, and the sale was PACKED!!! The sellers reported having the best sale in years. The dinner had tons of chatting, two different Little People games for people to win prizes (guess how many Little People were in a jar; plus how fast can you sort Little People by their color), an awesome buffet, plus we watched a DVD all about the Fisher-Price company through the years. Good times!

The sale did WONDERFUL - the best attendance in years. The sale took place on July 29th at the Masonic Lodge at 645 Main Street in East Aurora NY, and being in the heart of the action seems to be the trick! Lots and lots of toys were sold to happy Fisher-Price fans! The club was concerned that we may not have enough sellers going forward as some of our regulars are retiring from the business, but we already have new sellers showing interest in selling for next year, so much so that we already booked the next sale at the Masonic Lodge for Saturday July 28th, 2018!

For club members, the next newsletter (probably to be mailed in early 2018) will most likely have articles all about what went on at Convention 2017!







Here was the schedule for the 2017 Convention:

Our chairperson Becky will be in touch with all the vendors with the details. The sale is looking small this year as some of our regulars are not coming. There will be a social hour from 3:00 to around 4:00ish on Friday at the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge for club members and their guests, plus friends of the club. Often there is refreshments served.
FRIDAY JULY 28, 2017 FPCLUB BOARD MEETING? (board members only, rest of you don't have to worry about this!) TENTATIVE! The board holds their annual meeting during the convention, usually on Friday. Still figuring this one out!

The sale will be inside the building in their multi-purpose room. The sale is on the small side this year with about 6 vendors selling classic Fisher-Price toys. But one of our long-time vendors is selling tons of Fisher-Price Little People sets, pieces and people, so there will be plenty to look at right there! The sale is part of the East Aurora Chamber of Commerce's Street and Sidewalk Festival. See the Toy Sale Page for more info about parking, etc. If you are interesting in selling at the sale, see the potential vendor page.
