      INFORMATION FOR POTENTIAL VENDORS
for the 2017 Sale

DEADLINE FOR BECOMING A VENDOR:
JULY 11th, 2017

The Fisher-Price Collectors Club will be holding our annual Antique and Collectible Toy Show and Sale (named "Toys from the Attic") on Saturday July 29th, 2017 in East Aurora NY! The sale will be held at the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge, located at 645 Main Street in East Aurora NY. This is the same location we used for the sale in 2016. The hours are from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. The sale is part of Greater East Aurora Chamber of Commerce's Street and Sidewalk Sale which takes place right in front of the Masonic Lodge on Main Street, so this location is in the heart of the action! The sale will be held inside the Lodge in a multi-purpose room. This is the second year that the club is using this location. Longtime club member Becky is the chairperson of the sale.


Interesting in Selling?

Interested in becoming a vendor at the sale? The sale usually has around 8-10 vendors, with many being seasoned club members who have sold for years. Club members get first shot at securing vendor space, and the April 2017 Gabby Goose newsletter informed everyone of this opportunity. This year we have room for a few more vendors, with our room holding up to 18 max. Space is limited by the size of the room. If you are a club member interested in setting up a table to sell your toys, or if you are a prior Toyfest seller looking to sell again, contact us at fpclub@att.net! At this time, we also are welcoming non-club members to sell - if you are local to East Aurora and want to set up a table to sell vintage and collectible toys, feel free to contact us for more information!

What Our Shoppers Look For

At the sale, most of our shoppers are looking for vintage Fisher-Price toys (yeah that is pretty self-explanatory!). Toys made before 1990 tend to be the most collectible, but there are some collectors for newer toys, too. Far and Away, the top selling toys are the classic Little People sets from the 1960's to 1989, especially parts and figures for those sets. Boxed sets and rare sets also tend to sell well. Some people will pay top dollar for the "one piece they are missing" to complete their set! Also, the wooden pull toys (pre-1970) and the oldest ones made by Fisher-Price (1930's etc.) sell well.

Other Fisher-Price toy lines that sellers have been known to bring are: wind-up musical toys; Adventure People and Huskies (1970's-1980's); Chunkies (the 1990-1996 Little People); some newer Little People toys (The post 1990 ones tend not be what our shoppers are looking for, but hey, you can try!); 1970's/1980's dollhouse sets; Toyfest replicas; Fisher-Price factory and employee exclusive items; Other Fisher-Price toys from the 1970's and 1980's; and any collectible older toy in original packaging. Pretty much any older Fisher-Price toy has a potential collector out there somewhere! Our vendors are also welcome to sell other lines of collectible toys - Weebles, older Playskool, popular 1970's toys, etc. Most of our shoppers are looking for Fisher-Price and similarly-made toys, which is something to keep in mind when setting up a table to sell. Inventory changes every year depending on what the vendors are bringing to sell. See photos at our 2012 Convention to view what sellers have been selling in the past, and see if that appeals to you as a potential seller.

Table Fees

To sell at the 2017 sale, a 6 or 8 foot table rents for $45. The charge for an additional table is $25, space permitting. There is a 2 table limit per vendor for now. Vendors can set up on Friday afternoon. Renting tables will be on a first-come first-served basis. For anyone interested in becoming a vendor at the sale, please email us at fpclub@att.net, and Becky will contact you and send more information! If you do agree to become a vendor, Becky will then send a contract to sign and make it official. The preferred deadline this year is JULY 11th.
