|CALLING ALL FISHER-PRICE FANS, MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Hello collectors and all Fisher-Price fans! The Fisher-Price Collectors Club is planning to hold our next annual sale
on Saturday July 29, 2023 in beautiful East Aurora NY!. The location is the same place we used in the last few years,
the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge located at 645 Main Street. The sale is OPEN TO EVERYONE, club members and
general public alike! The times will be 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. The sale will be held inside in a multi-purpose room, so
we are open rain or shine! This year the sale is filled with the maximum number of vendors,
so there will be plenty of toys to be found!
The sale is part of the larger East Aurora Chamber of Commerce's annual
Street and Sidewalk Sale which takes place on Main Street. So yes, start thinking about gassing up your
Nifty Station Wagon, or buying a ticket to the Funjet - whatever it takes to come to East Aurora NY!
Scroll down for more details!
WHEN: Saturday July 29, 2023 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, rain or shine, we are indoors!
WHERE: The Blazing Star Masonic Lodge located at 645 Main Street in East Aurora, New York. East Aurora is about
20 miles south-east of Buffalo. It is the same location we used since 2016. The sale will be inside in a
multi-purpose room, filled with individual vendors selling toys at tables located throughout the room.
People can enter the building through the front door, or the back door near the tiny parking lot.
PARKING: Parking can be a headache. Main Street will be closed from Elm/Riley Street to Olean Street for the street festival, so there
is no parking or driving up to the front of the Masonic Lodge, but the back is open. The best place to park is the area behind the building
on Millard Fillmore Place, but that could be filled early. There are some lots nearby, plus parking on nearby side streets.
If you don't mind the walk, there is a large parking lot on Riley Street (behind Vidlers).
Unless you are super early, parking may be initially frustrating as you may have to hunt to find a space. There are lots of side streets
so parking spots can be found, but it may involve a bit of a walk to the sale.
PAYMENT: Each individual vendor handles their own sales at their table. Cash is king!
It is up to each individual seller whether they take credit cards or checks or
online payments (Venmo, etc).
WHAT'S FOR SALE: For 2023, the room is filled to the max with vendors! We have many returning vendors plus
some new ones too!
For those who know them, our sale's chairperson and vice president are coming with
tons to sell! Our chairperson
single-handedly brings bins and bins of
Little People sets, parts and people! In a typical sale, vendors may be selling:
classic Little People toys, figures, and parts; boxed sets of classic Fisher-Price toys;
Fisher-Price wooden pull toys; wind-up toys; home-made crafts made with Fisher-Price toys;
Adventure People loose toys and Huskys parts and sets;
puzzles and dolls; Toyfest replicas; Fisher-Price employee and factory memorabilia; and often other related collectible and antique toys.
Inventory will vary from year to year, so you never know what may pop up!
WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON: Our sale is a proud part of the East Aurora Chamber of Commerce's Street and
Sidewalk Sale, which is happening on
Main Street right outside the Lodge. The Street and Sidewalk Sale is in full glory this year.
There will be plenty of food vendors, crafts, community booths, shopping, contests for the kids, and lots more! See
the East Aurora's Chamber of Commerce's
Sidewalk and Street Festival Page for more information. So come visit our club's sale, plus the street festival too!
After the horrible year of 2020 (which the club's sale and convention was cancelled), then our quickly-planned-but-wonderful
2021 sale and convention,
and then our super awesome 2022 sale and convention,
we invite all Fisher-Price fans
to join us in East Aurora - we need to keep getting together, keep seeing each other, reconnecting and HAVING FUN!
If you can make it, SEE YOU IN EAST AURORA NY!
